What's Inside?

As much as we love playing video games it’s important to remember that it’s impossible to enjoy them without the very machines they appear on. Ever since the late Seventies various companies from all around the world, including Sony, Atari, Nintendo, Sega, Sinclair and Commodore, have been in an arms race to create the most exciting, most powerful games machines of all time. Some of these systems have fallen by the wayside, forgotten by all but the fiercest of fans, while others have gone on to shape our childhood memories and help define the industry itself. Our latest book not only looks at some of Retro Gamer readers’ most favourite consoles and computers but also goes one better, examining some of these classic systems and revealing how they were created. You’ll discover how machines like the Commodore 64, Xbox and NES were made, learn how the Amiga 500 rose to power, and find out why there’s still so much love for the humble ZX Spectrum. Better yet, there’s a plethora of fantastic photography of your favourite machines and peripherals, meaning our latest book is a feast for the eyes as well as the mind. We hope you enjoy it.Page Count: 212
