The International Center for the History of Electronic Games (ICHEG) this week announced that it has acquired nearly 7,000 Japanese video games, spanning 22 different video game systems. The ICHEG collects and studies video game collections and related materials. Many of these collections are displayed at the National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York. Jon-Paul Dyson, director at ICHEG, explained that this newly-acquired collection of games, featuring titles from developers like Nintendo, NEC, Sega and Pioneer, documents the Japanese video game market across multiple decades and consoles. The plan is to share this collection with guests and scholars at the National Museum of Play museum. A video from Wired gives an in-depth look into this acquired collection, which was put together by collectors Andre and Sylvio Hodos.
