INFOGRAPHIC : THE EVOLUTION OF VIDEO GAME STORAGE
In early video games, there was no need for storage, as these games usually had no actual plot to develop and were generally very short in length — meaning saved games were irrelevant. The fourth generation of consoles, also called the 16-bit generation, was the first to save your in-game progression and began in 1977.During this era, gaming storage was described in megabits instead of megabytes. Games were played through cartridges and saved games were held on the cartridges themselves. Most games only required a few megabytes of space.Cartridges were used between 1977 and 1996, ending with the Nintendo 64. DOWNLOAD
