Video Game Controller Family Tree [Infographic]

| September 14, 2011 | Reply

Expert infographic creators, Pop Chart Lab, has created an awesome graphic on the history of video game controllers. Starting all the way back with Tennis for Two in 1958 and going all the way to the upcoming Nintendo Wii U controller, it does a great job of showing the evolution of the way we control our console games. If you really dig it, you can actually order a poster of it for $30 over at

So without further ado, infographic below! See how many of the controllers you recognize!:

Thanks for the heads up, Dave!
