Brilliant Game Console 2.0 Hardcover Photography Book Drops to $26.50 at Amazon

Amazon now offers hardcover book Game Console 2.0: A Photographic History from Atari to Xbox for $26.33 shipped. This one sold for $34 or more for most of last year before dropping to $30 in October. We saw it briefly drop to $25.50 during Black Friday season last year, but today’s deal is the best price we’ve tracked otherwise. This is the updated version that offers a photographic history of the consoles that started it all up to the S/X and PS5 series. It has 50 additional pages, compared to the original version which is selling for a few dollars more right now, and is a great collectible or game room piece of equipment that features “very detailed photos” of over 86 gaming machines. More details below.

There really aren’t many direct alternatives to game console 2.0 book above. But another notable option that costs even less is The ultimate history of video games on $22. This one won’t provide the heavy-duty hardcover treatment, but it does deliver over 600 pages of video game history, from the “game that saved Nintendo from bankruptcy” to the “misstep that helped overthrow the Atari’s $2 billion a year empire.
