Video Game Controllers Evolution

Many of us have been playing Video Games for decades, and we have experienced the Video Game Controllers Evolution hands on. With this neat poster, we can see how it all transpired.

This cool illustration found at Offworld dates back to the Tandy and Atari 2600 Video Game Console Controllers and continues through the years passing the NES, SNES, Dreamcast, Playstation and finally ends on the Wiimote.

It is amazing to see how Video Game consoles have evolved simply by the use of the controllers. What once was only a Controller with only a stick and a button has grown to the Nintendo Wiimote with a Directional Pad, 3 Buttons, 4 Options, 1 Shoulder, and is Motion Sensitive, including an additional Stick, 2 Shoulders which is also Motion Sensitive.

What will be next?
