    Don't forget Intellivision.

    My first was also Pong from Sears. @61, I’ve had more than just my fair share of gaming consoles over the years and other platforms as well PC, Commodore Vic20. Consoles Intellivision, Nintendo up to the Wii U, Xbox, currently PS4 Pro.

    If you’re a baseball fan, PlayStation is a must.

    If you’re a fan of shooters like Call of Duty, there is now cross play between PC, xBox and PlayStation so it really doesn’t matter should you or you’re family want to play in a group with other platforms.

    If you’re looking for a family friendly experience, Nintendo fits the bill, but is severely lacking a presence in the first person shooter games.

    When Sony introduces the PS5, it will be backwards compatible with any PS4 games that you purchase in the meantime..

    if you’re starting from scratch and not needing the Nintendo experience, xBox and PlayStation both provide excellent gaming experiences and good platforms for multiplayer video games. It’s hard to go wrong with the choices available today.

    Good luck in finding your system.

    I lost a good 4 years of my life when call of duty modern warfare came out and I realised after playing offline for over a year I could go online with it. The following years are a blur. I wore out a couch playing that game. Like others my first console was a pong. Funny how at the time I thought I had a killer technique spinning that knob and all the games looked the same.

    Brother, I got it to work wrapping the console in the Wife's robe, that thing is thick! I hope it lasts, my Brother will be over tomorrow, will test it out and drink a case of beer doing it:)

    Nice one, glad it worked. You can do it again whenever the ring comes back, if it does. :)

    I found that not leaving it on for real long lengths of time helped avoiding the red ring of death. You could point a fan at it too.
