First generation consoles

A Wikipedia page has been created with the list of all consoles in the first generation that is more complete and adds more info about the console, alongside an automatic counter, something Wikimedia doesn't have. However, it is still incomplete, so please update that one as this list is now obsolete.

If possible, when you see one of these systems, take pictures, upload them, and add them to the respective Wikipedia page, there's very little photographic documentation of them, any help you can give is appreciated.

The First Generation of consoles is a hodgepodge of samey consoles, missing information, confusion, and is overall the one in worst condition when it comes to archiving and preservation. This gallery has the sole purpose of gathering together all of the pictures on Wikimedia of these systems, to aid in researching and creating articles about them. The first step is know they existed, so here they are!

The following is a list in alphabetical order of the manufacturers. Manufacturers that only made one console are listed under "The Rest" with each respective console in the end.
