Have you ever heard of the Dreamcast or Atari 2600? Most of you probably haven't, but if you enjoy playing video games, you should be familiar with it! The Dreamcast and the Atari 2600 are just two examples of really old video game consoles that have shaped the way modern video games are played today.
Another revolutionary video game console was the 2006 Wii. The Wii was the first ever motion based console. That means when you moved your controler, your pointer would move with your motions on the screen! When it first came out, people “Went wild for the first motion-based console” The Wii has sparked all sorts of new motion based games and consoles. One example is Virtual Reality. In a “VR” game when you move your hands, you do something in the game. This makes “VR” a lot more realistic than just using an Xbox controller. Another example of this is Just Dance. Just Dance is a game for the Xbox, Playstation and Wii. In the game you have to follow the dance moves shown on the screen. The better you mirror the moves, the more points you will get.
