    Ah, reddit...
    The organization is a bit inconsistent.
    In some cases, the US console is mentioned, others the Japanese one.
    Also, the images sometimes show different models of the console, such as the Atari 2600 shown is the "Jr" release (nowadays we would call it "slim"), which was only available in the US market.
    The Master System is the 3rd model as well, instead of the original release which had support for 3D glasses.
    Some factual mistakes there: the Dreamcast did not have a built in modem, it was an add-on that by the time of its release, it offered a 33.6k connection.
    The 64DD wasn't a console itself, it was an addon for the N64, akin to the 32X and the Mega Drive.

    Finally, the texts are annoying. Sometimes it's in past tense, some other times in present tense in the same paragraph. It should be revised as well, for instance "was came out"?

    That's not a 2600 - they were fake plastic wood colored.

    I remember the commador being given as a gift with the purchase of heat pumps. My cousin did this but That was in the early 80s. We had the atari 7600 (?) early 80s as well. Great memories of the competitions at the house. I say early 80s because I graduated in 83. These systems we got before then.

    You didn't mention the Pico. It's a game system my sister had and she only had one game for it a Richard Scarry game. Honestly, I'm not sure why my parents got it for her, but she enjoyed it.
