Until 1970-1980 the video games are not popular one for all. The name of first video game introduced is arcade.

Video game console is a device which is specially made for playing game through customized computer system. This customized computer system will create a video signal which is used for display the video game.

Fairchild released the Fairchild Video Entertainment System (VES) in 1976. Whereas there had been previous game consoles that used cartridges, either the cartridges had no info and served a similar perform as flipping switches (the Odyssey) or the console itself was empty and also the cartridge contained all of the sport elements.
