I was thinking about this the other day. My first real videogame console (unless you count Pong) was the Atari 2600. There were other systems but none offered much improvement over the 2600. The next major leap in technology came with the NES and the graphic improvements and huge leaps in game playability. Then the SNES with it's improved graphics. This is where the world of videogames really took off. There were other 16-bit systems, but they were basically just more of the same with minor touches here and there. Then came the PlayStation, which moved into the realm of Compact Discs and Polygonal graphics. A major improvement over the SNES. IMO, the PS2 is more of a minor upgrade to what the PSX offered. It's basically just improved graphics and DVD capability. So, the question is, what is the next big thing to come along and move videogame technology forward?
