Now that fixed release dates have been set for both the PS4 and Xbox One, gamers are eagerly looking forward to what the next-generation of video game consoles has in store. The PS3 and Xbox 360, not to mention modern PC hardware, wowed fans of interactive storytelling and unique gameplay experiences – as they brought an unprecedented level of blockbuster immersion and realism while also providing a platform for indie developers to test our brains and emotions, not just our reflexes.
Of course, the current (and soon next-generation) hardware didn’t come out of nowhere – and represent just the latest refinement in a history of innovations, refinements, evolutions and failed experiments in gaming that started over 40 years ago.
What exactly the future holds for gaming is anyone’s guess at this point, though developers are already hard at work testing the waters, but in the meantime prepare for what’s to come by checking out this cool feature on the History of Gaming over at Green Label.
