Color TV-Game 6: Nintendo's First Game Console

@ December 18, 2017

In this episode of Modern Classic we take a look at Nintendo's first-ever home game console: the Color TV-Game 6.

While most Americans' know the Nintendo Entertainment System and consequently probably know the Famicom that was its Japanese progenitor, not as many are aware that Nintendo had been making other home gaming systems since 1977.

The Color TV-Game was a series of consoles that initially copied popular American games like Pong and Breakout, with the Color TV-Game 6 being the first in this series.

Developed with Mitsubishi, it would be Nintendo's first entry into electronic home gaming, setting them on a path they've been on continuously ever since.
