Review:

'There are other gaming books out there. What makes Vintage Game Consoles different, however, is the thorough nature of the writing, while still being condensed enough to tell a story...This book has that special ability to put into words those feelings, those gaming moments that us long-time gamers sometimes have so much trouble explaining.' -- Christin Deville, GameVortex Communications

'If you're new to the classic gaming scene, this book is the perfect primer to get you up to speed and allow you to speak intelligently on the subject. If you're a grizzled veteran like me, there's still plenty to learn, especially about platforms with which you had limited experience when they were current-gen. The book also makes for great reference material after the initial read-through. I've read more than my share of these retrospective gaming books, and this one is by far the most well-rounded.' -- Chris Alaimo, Classic Gaming Quarterly

"Apple II aficionados will be comforted to find the Apple II included in Vintage Game Consoles, Bill Loguidice and Matt Barton's time-spanning, 30-year coverage of notable video game machines...[Vintage Game Consoles] is a welcome addition to video game canon. It's professionally presented, well written, and interesting to boot." - Juiced.GS, Andy Molloy
