    Retro Console Teardowns

    I work for iFixit (just being honest and up front here)

    We've been doing retro game console teardowns this whole week! Sort of a walk through history on some of the older gen consoles. I thought it would be appropriate to let those of you interested in old gaming hardware know! XD

    I think this is the proper place to post this news!
    I'll update this as the week goes on.

    Monday: Magnavox Odyssey 100, released in August 1975

    Tuesday: RCA Studio 2, released in January 1977

    Wednesday: Atari 2600, released in October 1977

    Thursday: Nintendo Famicom, released in July 1983

    Thanks for sharing with us JRT. I have a lot of respect for the work you guys do. Couldn't close my browser when you put up the iPhone4 teardown. Now I can't put down the phone lol.

    Haha thanks, glad to hear it!

    I don't own an iPhone, but the new iPod touch really makes me kind of want one.

    Trapped in crummy airports, so hopefully I'll update this thread at a reasonable time tomorrow
