We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Game Wave Family Entertainment System

The Game Wave Family Entertainment System is a hybrid DVD player and video game console. It was first released in Canada in October 2005.

Unlike other consoles of its generation (such as the Xbox 360), the Game Wave is aimed at a more family friendly market: the majority of its games are trivia based or video versions of more traditional games (such as variants of Scrabble and Blackjack). The Game Wave can connect up to six controllers (which look like TV remotes) but comes with four. Each controller has a different color (yellow, red, blue, green, purple, and orange) to help players tell them apart. It comes with a case that can hold all 6 remotes and a copy of 4 Degrees: The Arc of Trivia, Vol. 1.

Manufacturer: ZAPiT Games
Date: October 2005

This exhibit has a reference ID of CH39358. Please quote this reference ID in any communication with the Centre for Computing History.
