Facts about video game Console

Many would think the realms of home video game console and IBM PC-compatible hardware would never cross paths except in the minds of the most playfully twisted hardware engineers Actually they did cross paths severally in the 1990s. This resulted from the salesrooms of struggling game console firms desperate to get a return on the huge sums they spent developing custom silicon; by licensing the technology to third-party accessory manufacturers.

In the 1990s, at least six times, one could buy a product that would let them play certain video console games on an IBM-compatible PC without the need for software emulation. This was made possible by stuffing all the necessary console hardware onto a plug-in ISA or PCI card that then nestled into its host machine and used the PC’s I/O devices and power supply to its own nefarious gaming ends.
