This is a list of dedicated video game consoles in chronological order. Only officially licensed dedicated consoles are listed in the retro style sections.

Dedicated consoles are video game consoles that have a single game or a limited list of games built into the console itself, and are not equipped for additional games that are distributed via cartridges, discs, downloads, or other media. Most first generation video game consoles are dedicated consoles. Starting in the 2000s, there has been a new wave of dedicated consoles focused primarily on retrogaming.
