Console Game

Definition - What does Console Game mean?

A console game is a type of interactive multimedia software that uses a video game console to provide an interactive multimedia experience via a television of other display device. The game console generally consists of a handheld wireless (or wired) remote control device and a computer that runs the game's software.

Console game media can come in the form of a disk, which is inserted into the game console, although the latest game consoles download game demos directly from the Internet to built-in storage devices. Older game consoles use cartridges, which stored the game's programming on integrated circuits.

A console game is also known as video game.
