Game Institute Launches New Console Design Course

The Game Institute is proud to announce the launch of a brand new course on video game console design!

Taught by Andre LaMothe, creator of the XGameStation, and Joshua Hintze, creator of the XGS' Digital Logic Exploration Kit, this course was created for anyone who wants to learn more about the fundamentals of game hardware (game consoles, handhelds, video cards, sound cards, input devices, etc.)

This Game Institute exclusive course is the first and only one of its kind offered anywhere in the world, and it is fully online and developed and taught by masters of both electrical engineering and game development! Nowhere else will you learn the concepts and skills required to create your own video game console (and then build your own games for it!) in such an easily accessible setting.

Besides the software and course materials that are available on the website, you will also receive a complete hardware kit containing over 100+ components, including items such as: pre-manufactured printed circuit board, microcontrollers, “The Black Art of Video Game Console Design by Andre LaMothe” paperback book, soldering iron, digital multimeter, Nintendo gamepad controller, resistors, capacitors, LEDs, and much more!

The course launches on Nov 1st, however we are accepting pre-orders to ship materials to students in time for the course's launch. Pre-orders also receive an instant $20 discount! Go check out Video Game Console Design now!
