The Top 10 Consoles That Were Never Released

The Top 10 Consoles That Were Never Released

A lot of folks out there probably don’t spend much time thinking about the devices that were never released, but I always get a certain kick out of reading what we might be deriding or praising today had market trends or other factors shifted a little more in one direction, a little less in another.  Most of the “Big 5” (Atari, Nintendo, Sega, Sony, and Microsoft) have had their stumbles along the way, accompanied by some lesser known manufacturers as well.  Although a complete list of unreleased consoles (of any note) wouldn’t be much longer than 10, these are the ones I found most interesting and relevant to my own knowledge.  Oh, and don’t forget to check out the “Honorable Mentions” at the end for a few that I couldn’t quite work into the Top 10 but couldn’t bear leaving off either.

So, sit back, and take a look at look at what never quite made it to the shelves.

Find out what these ratings mean and how I rate video games.

I collect as much video gaming paraphernalia as I can get my hands on, especially when it comes to hardware. With over 40 systems including oldies like the ColecoVision and Intellivision, obscurities like the CD-i and 3DO, and the latest and greatest including the Wii U, PS4, Xbox One, 3DS, and PS Vita, I get easily overwhelmed. Most of the time you can find me firmly nestled sometime between 1985 and 1995 when it comes to my games of choice, but I’m also having a great time seeing what the 8th generation has to offer.

Currently in love with: Mortal Kombat
