Ever wondered what your favorite gaming consoles, past and present, would look like if they rendered themselves? Well, wonder no more, because the folks at free online resource Electronics Hub recently created renders of different gaming consoles from PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo within the boundaries of their own software and hardware limitations.
To show just how far gaming technology has come, and to trigger a bit of nostalgia, the Electronics Hub team rendered 24 of the most popular gaming consoles of the past 40 years using only what is available from the consoles themselves.
The Electronics Hub team first made a list of the top PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo gaming consoles of all time, and looked up their processing power, hardware’s color spectrum, and other necessary details in order to find what each console is capable of. The team then used the limitations of each console in order to create a render of the device within the limits of its features.
From the PlayStation brand, the Electronics Hub team rendered PS1, PS2, PSP, PS3, PS Vita, PS4, and PS5. The team also rendered four Xbox gaming consoles: the original Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and the brand’s latest computer, the Xbox Series X.
The majority of the rendered gaming consoles are from Nintendo. These include tabletop consoles NES, SNES, N64, Game Cube, and Wii; handheld consoles Game Watch, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, DS, and 3DS; as well as hybrid consoles Wii U and Switch.
