Thanks, added some early 4bit and 8bit consoles.
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Jul 21 3:20
@Karyyk, thanks, fixed... also added sections.

The Intellivion processor was 16 bit, but had only a 10-bit instruction-set, and with a sub-1mhz processor its not really comparable to later 16-bit consoles.

What about the Atari Lynx in the first handheld wars?
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Aug 6 20:52

Wow! It didn't expect the Wii to be so far a head.

Noooes, why is the Wii so popular? D:
Well put together list btw, nice! :D
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Sep 6 2:02
You gave the N64 3 stars? blasphemy! lol
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Sep 7 21:44
@rewster, I didn't own an N64 until well into the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube cycle, so my opinions are probably effected by that... Still a good system. Also, my grading scales tend to be pretty harsh, I think.

Updated sales numbers for current gen... Added DS and PSP... Added 3ds and PS vita.
