The Video Game Console Collector's Field Guide started as a personal quest to discover the depths of hardware collecting but evolved into a massive 400+ page collector guide and checklist for everyone!


The guide includes 4 main sections:


1) The visual guide - Pictures of over 900 pieces of gaming hardware with their associated logos. 170+ full color pages, all organized into a dozen chapters and sorted so that they're easily identifiable. ALL of your favorite game consoles are inside to include offerings from: Magnavox, Atari, Commodore, Sega, Nintendo, SNK, NEC, Sony, Microsoft, Bandai, Panasonic, Tiger, Philips, Mattel, Coleco, Apple and countless others.


2) Special Features and Interviews - Rare console variations, knockoff consoles, and interviews with collectors of some of the largest and most interesting collections in the world. 


3) The Index - Facts, technical summaries, and personal anecdotes based on research done into most of the hardware in the book and more.


4) The Checklist - An easy to follow checklist so that you can keep track of everything that you've personally seen, played and owned. All hardware is in the order that they appear in the visual guide. Think of it as your personal gaming memory card.
