    What is your view of retro consoles.

    This is how i classify a retro console.



    A console that has stopped all production of videogames.


    What is your view or a retro console?

    A retro console is something that isn't capable of the gameplay you get in modern games. I'm not talking looks, I'm talking about things that could not be possible even if you degraded a games graphics.

    So Playstation/Dreamcast/N64 are retro for me. Everything after is a no no. You could argue that DS could not possibly do most of the modern hits BUT its own hits are as modern as they come.

    So you're saying the NES didn't become retro until 2008? :/

    Wait...doesn't that mean the Atari 2600 didn't become retro until last year? (Halo 2600)

    The last posts are funny.
    A retro console to me is 10-40 years old, and/or no popularly used.
