Introducing the upcoming new website

Introduction to the new Consolevariations website

 

As you might have noticed that we have not posted blog posts since May 2018. The reason is that we are currently creating a new console variations website. Every day new features are being developed to provide an even better experience for you.

 


New to console variations?


Consolevariations.com is a database site for video game consoles, controllers and their box variations. After 2 years of existence we are re-launching the website to transform it into the ultimate tool for collectors and gamers introducing a ton of new features.The original site was launched in April of 2016 as a hobby project. Our goal was to list every console & controller that ever existed from the most famous brands in a clear overview. Most importantly we also included all the box variations to really let our users see the whole picture of every release there was. This was never done before to this extent and it proved to evolve to something people loved.

 


The Future


Since then the site and our community has grown and it became way more than a hobby. We realized that the demand for this information and clear lists with quality images is way higher than expected. So we decided to team up with a development team and create the "ultimate" tool for collectors and gamers. We want to give you a site that doesn't only provide information, but also solves the problems of collectors & gamers when it comes to managing their collection. And of course it will remain free to use - always!
