Notably Absent

Atari and Intellivision consoles (especially the Atari 2600) are not in the game. Atari consoles were fairly prevalent at the time the Nintendo NES was released, although they were past their heyday.

Also, some Nintendo handhelds (Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance/SP, Nintendo DS Lite, Nintendo DSi/XL, and Nintendo 3DS/XL) were not included, probably because for the most part they were variations of the original device. Another series of Nintendo handhelds, the Game & Watch series, also isn't included. It would be the third starting console of the game, with its creation in 1980 and would be the only videogame at all surviving after the Great Crash of 1983(and until 1991), which is around the point the game started.

Beyond that, the Sega Saturn isn't included, probably because the developers didn't think it would be a good idea to let 3 home consoles at the same time for a single enterprise(Vena). And, in the UK, at least, there was great competition between the various Sinclair and Commodore variants for most of the 1980s until the introduction of the Commodore Amiga and Atari ST 16-bit home computers towards the end of that decade.

No Arcade system boards are included.

Custom Consoles

Once you have a Tech lab (unlocked with a Tech Specialist.) you can develop your own console, there are 4 different variants with 3 colors each.

These 4 variants are visually similar to:

  • Xbox (with an hexagon in the middle)
  • Wii (with a circular base)
  • GameCube (a simple cube)
  • Xbox 360 / Playsystem 4 (vertical console)
