To make a game for a console, you must first buy a license for it (except pc games), unless you make your own console. Often the more expensive and newer the console, the more money you will make with your game.

Once a console is removed from the market, you may no longer create games for it. If you make a new console, your old one will be removed. PC Game console will never be taken off the market, along with any console after the Mini Status.

Making Consoles[]

To make a console, you must have at least one Hardware Engineer. Making a console takes quite a bit of time, and you will almost always have your fan base shrink at least once for not releasing a game (having high stats and use lots of Dead Bull to finish quickly helps prevent this). To build a console, you must be in the level 3 office.
