Updated: 10/26/2014 The New Nintendo 3DS XL was added and there is now more emphasis on the XL lineage.


Updated: 10/17/2014 A new Nintendo 3DS!


Presenting portable pixel progression pixel-art presentation. :-P

Note: Technically the Game & Watch didn't use pixels in its display but was included anyway.  The Game Boy Light and Super Game Boy 2 were never released outside of Japan and the Game Boy Micro should have been arranged below the original DS if this were a strictly chronological chart.  It just happens to look better situated closer to the other Game Boy Advance systems. :shrug:

The GBA SP had two versions though (model 001 and 101)... Even if the main difference was the screen brightness. But great to see this still up to date! You make it easier to understand Game Boy/DS/3DS history just by a glance! :D The screens just seem to get larger like phones do... ^^;

Was wondering if I could ask permission to use the GBA pixel art. Made a modification of it as an icon replacement for VisualBoy, but thought it would be something my watchers would love to use well. I'll make sure you're creditted as the one who made the template.

Should the Pokemon GO/GO Plus be on here, too, perhaps? static3.gamespot.com/uploads/o…

I would love to, but that device doesn't have a display of any kind, therefore no pixels.  But should Nintendo ever release a smart phone, I'll definitely add this along with that in the future. :nod:

Then they got from the good stuff to the hard-as-hell-to-use stuff.

That's very nice, I didn't know there's so many verions of Nintendo. My first console is DS- Lite, but I have played the Game & Watch. :) (Smile) 
Am I the only one who don't understand the point on 2DS. :-? (Confused) I'm not saying it's bad, I just don't get it.Sweating a little...

Just added it. ;-)  The New 3DS XL will be added once I find an image for reference if it's already released that is...

Super Game Boy 2? I never heard of that. Interesting.

BTW, I was thinking about how Nintendo consoles were associated with their handhelds.

NES - Game Boy
SNES - Super Game Boy
N64 - Game Boy Color
Gamecube - Game Boy Advance
Wii - DS
Wii U - 3DS

Do you think what I just listed would be accurate associations? The reason is that I see how the 3DS and Wii U have the Nintendo Network ID, and I've also noticed that Sony has been trying to link the PS4 with the PS Vita. Even though I've yet to own the PS4 and the Vita, I heard all about it.
