Sorry I have been away all weekend at Retrovision:

I never said it was the first console, but it was most certainly the first one to be successful and was the one that kickstarted the gaming industry. The 2600 was the first machine to have official coin-op conversions, licensed games, 3rd party releases and be sold in main stream stores all over the world.

All I have done is stick to the facts and correct other people when they mis-represented them.
I actually played on a few Nintendo consoles this weekend including the Wii, NES, SNES and 3DS. Played some great games too but I am sure this will get ignored and certain people will be quick enough to start off the you hate Nintendo nonsense again.
