3rd - Sega, With - Sega SG-1000.

3rd Generation

This next one is my prediction of what consoles we'll see in the 8th generation, and some of them would be extremely unlikely...

Nintendo - Revolution.
Microsoft - XBOX720.
Sony - Playstation 4.
Apple - IConsole.
Sega - Dreamcast 2.


Generation Winners
1st Gen - Magnavox
2nd Gen - Atari
3rd Gen - Nintendo
4th Gen - Nintendo
5th Gen - Sony
6th Gen - Sony
7th Gen - N/A.

Discuss. Or feel free to pick me up if i've done one of them wrong.

Apple and Sega I'm a little doubtful about. Sega seems dedicated to making games now than consoles, they've had they limelight.

And Apple? They're demographic seems to be buisness workers/trendy 20 year olds, they don't play console games much.

I could be wrong though.

Apple made its name on simplifying technology and its applications for people. I can't envision them entering the console war. Doing so would be greedy anyway, since they've already done an excellent job of taking advantage of the market segments they originally sought out. Why begin a risky venture like making a console now? It could be a costly mistake if things aren't done correctly. This is just a roll of the dice Apple simply does not need to take and if they're smart, they won't.

I can't make a prediction on the upcoming console war seeing how I have no idea what's in store next, but I do have a feeling the winner will be determined by who gives the customer more value for their buck. Gaming hardware will likely be near equal among the competitors and that's when the system's library will really matter.

Some of these generations are a little iffy. For example, I remember back in the heydey of PSOne its major competitor was the SNES for a while (or at least, that's how Sony marketed it).

Either way, the numbers are interesting to look at.

Sure, ooppss, sorry, I already ate them all. But what the heck, possums anyone? xD

Apple doesn't need to enter the console wars and shouldn't, it's very stupid if they do.

You know, I completely forgot about that. It's odd to think I was playing SMW and my friend Crash Bandicoot at the same time for a long period of time.

Well, the same could be said for the Dreamcast, as people played that while the N64 was still in date.
