If you long for the days when video games had pixelated graphics and music that sounded like it came from a synthesizer, then you will love Biscotto Cotto's 8-bit Console posters. Biscotto Cotto is an Etsy merchant who has given iconic consoles from all eras an 8-bit makeover.

Some of these posters, like the Game Boy and Sega Genesis one, fit the 8-bit theme to a tee. Others look strangely out of place, like the Xbox 360 and PS2, but in a good way. Video game consoles have gotten so fancy as of late that it is often easy to forget the humble origins of home video gaming. Biscotto Cotto's 8-bit Console posters remind us all that the origin of every hi-def video game was an indistinguishable sprite. The posters are available now and sell for $15 apiece.
