And the ORIGINAL thread title was "Inventer of video game console dies at 70"

and everyone got all "OMG a black man invented gaming" no he didn't... was my argument... he didn't invent the console just the ROM cartridge...

there is a difference

ROM cartridge...he didn't invent cartridge gaming just ROM cartridge...which is NINTENDO based... so dude was right in saying he developed the thing that made Nintendo and Sega even possible in the first place...but he didn't invent gaming or the gaming console...

nobodys trying to discredit anything.

theyre just giving the credit for what he did invent and not the wrong thing.

this is basically the equivalent of trying to say the person who invented the touchtone phone actually invented the first phone
