Console Gaming is a form of gaming that was purposely designed to allow you to enjoy playing video games from the comfort of your own home. The history and evolution of console gaming is an interesting one and things really got started way back in the early 1970's. There are many different types of games consoles available on the market today and with each type of device players can find a huge choice of games and a broad spectrum of genres.
The two main types of games consoles are recognised as home consoles and handheld game consoles. To play on a game using one of these consoles you generally need to insert either a disc (CD, DVD or Blu-ray) or a cartridge (also known as a card) and games are normally purchased separately from the actual console. However, some games consoles also come with built-in games and these devices are capable of storing multiple titles.
