This template creates a table of video game platforms. You can specify which platforms appear in the table, and how many columns the table is sorted into.
The template takes three named parameters and up to a maximum of 60 unnamed parameters. The named parameters
tot represent the number of columns in the table and the total number of platforms to display, respectively. The unnamed parameters determine which platforms get displayed.
If you specify too many columns (or a reader's browser width is too small), problems with table alignment can occur. More than six columns will cause errors in the template. If you wish to achieve an alphabetical listing, you must enter the platforms in alphabetical order.
It also might be a good idea to list platforms in alphabetical order within the articles themselves. This is in order to resolve issues where one platform is given preference over another, or where accurate release info is unavailable. This would also make further sorting (i.e. within a spreadsheet) easier.

|This template may require cleanup to meet Wikipedia's quality standards. The specific problem is: unsupported parameters are being added. Please help improve this template if you can; the talk page may contain suggestions.|
A full list of supported platforms is as follows. Platforms are mostly limited to those having categories of their own somewhere beneath the Category:Video games by platform super-category. If a game was released on too many platforms to list, use Various in place of a code.
