Gaming system reference table

2023. 08. 12. 13:59 | \English

A reference table (sortable) for various gaming systems (handhelds, consoles, arcades) to check screen resolutions and aspect ratios for emulation. It was created for checking and comparing different system's aspect ratios and resolutions.

The table is incomplete (partially to keep it reasonable simple) and may contain erros!
