14/15, I got Super Nintendo and Super Famicom mixed up.
I thought of the price of the Neo Geo to be very expensive (and tbh more than 650 dollar; more like 800 dollar)  
Also, I thought the Mattel Intellivision was released in 1978 instead of 1979

I'm such a geek and it shows...  I got 15 out of 15 on my first try...  The only question I had to guess on was the Colecovision, as I wasn't even born yet when that came out.  Did anybody else have problems with the last picture loading for SEGA's Handheld?

14/15

Fricked the question that asked what year the intellivision was released, I chosed 1980, but too late after I clicked, it had 1979 lol!

Either then that, too easy. ;)  They should have shown the Colecovision or the Vectrex

Mine!  :-D

So close. I got 13/15. Missed the Intellivision by a year.
And missed the Sega hand held for some reason.

Got 15/15.... I'm impressed two whole Amiga references...

But Virgin is a UK business. Mainstream US media NEVER mentions the amiga in a propper historical context. It's , Atari, Colecovision, Apple Commodore 64, Nintendo, SEGA, PC.

I've seen books on the history of computers that don't even mention the Amiga...They mention commodore pet, the 64 then poof...! its 1991 and windows 3.1 and the MacII are the rage. Its funny that many of the games of this era were developed on the Amiga and PORTED to consoles and other systems.

Oh by the way the Video Toaster was a computer video system developed by Newtek and ran on PC's hardware... :roll:

So a whole 5 year block of time vanished?

13/15 but I rushed the last one (clicked on Game Gear and then saw the cart was a Megadrive style cart so had to be a Nomad), and the NeoGeo price question was a bit dodgy!

Now I want to write a real quiz to sort out the men from the boys (and if I do, trust me it'll be hard. :) )

but the shame had the year of the amiga 600 wrong, said 91 not 92, my brain was screaming 92, and my other voice said no it was 91, will I ever live the shame down.
