Retro Gaming Consoles is another retro gaming specialist, 'deicated' to retro gaming systems and classic and games and its fascinating to take a browse through the website to check out the old consoles. It's also interesting to read up on the history.
For example, according to the site, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)...which was light and dark grey in the West, dark maroon in Japan, was released in the early 1980s and apparently gave the American gaming industry a much needed shot in the arm .
