Abstract

The video game consoles industry has gone through many generations and is currently evolving into its eighth generation of consoles (as the holiday season is approaching – an opportunity to boost sales). Each generation denotes the change process as described in the adaptive cycle of change. First, a short summary is provided of the history of video game consoles (where did it start? where are we now?), divided by generations. Subsequently, we will dive into more detail on the seventh generation (described by the four phases of the Adaptive Cycle of Change), with specific focus on the three major industry players (i.e. Nintendo, Sony Computer Entertainment, and Microsoft).
