Product description

Review

Featured in Wired and My Modern Met.

"While services like PlayStation Now prove that streaming has the potential to increase access to older hardware-bound games, The Game Console posits that consoles themselves are important cultural objects that we shouldn't forget."
--Motherboard

"Amos' passion for gaming and photographic skills come together beautifully in The Game Console."
--Kotaku

"Photographed in intense, loving detail, the book quite literally unpacks 86 consoles and examines their innards."
--Mashable

"A perfect choice for gamers looking to build up their knowledge on video game history."
--Android Central

"The actual history lesson of the industry makes this more than a coffee table book."
--Game Vortex
