So I’m trying to make a mod to include real life consoles (which I may not release), and of course everything has a release and discontinuation date IRL. Considering that platforms don’t come out at their exact dates in game as they do in real life, of course I’m going to have to play with the dates so that some of my platforms in my mod will co-inside with the release of other consoles (like the Sega-CD/Oasis-CD should come out after the Vena Oasis)
Playing a normal length 35 year game, what real life year would people say GDT starts at? In the past I thought it was 1982 or 1985 but after looking around a bit it’s possible the game starts at Janurary 1st 1980.
If the Game actually does start in 1980, then that would mean that a 35 year game should theoretically end in 2014 but not only do the Playsystem 4 and MBox One come out many years prior, but the game even has the Playsystem 5 and MBox Next as their successors before the end of the game. I’d say that the sucessors to the Playstation 4 and XBOX one irl probably wont come out until maybe 2018 (considering that the Playstation 4 and XBOX one are getting Mid-life upgrades)
Whats your guys thoughts on this?
