4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read but few pictures 8 Nov 2011

Great book providing an insight into the Video Game consoles and Home Computers of the 70s, 80s and 90s. There is a follow up part 2 that covers most of the ones that are missed however this is not on the Kindle yet. The Kindle edition has the text of the printed edition but misses many of the pictures especially the screenshots. Some of the colour and atmosphere is lost from the large format printed version. It is however still a good read and better than spending over £100 the speculators are currently asking for the book as this is now out of print and hard to come by.

5.0 out of 5 stars Geek-gasm 4 May 2012
This is really a reference tool for those with interest in Retro Gaming. Every page, for me, is some childhood memory revisited. It is also exceptionally well written and well-researched. eBooks of this quality are rare.
