1. The X-box was originally going to be called the DirectX-box after Microsoft's computer program.

2.Possessing a copy of Manhunt in New Zealand is a criminal offence

3.Final Fantasy got its name from the fact that its creator, Square co-founder Hironobu Sakaguchi, intended it to be his last video game, using up the remainder of Square’s money after a number of unsuccessful projects

4.Nearly half the disc space on Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is taken up with dialogue

5.In the original arcade Donkey Kong game, Mario was called Jumpman and he was a carpenter, not a plumber.

6.The PlayStation was originally planned to be a Nintendo console, with Sony designing the inside components. When Nintendo abandoned the idea Sony decided to make it anyway.

7.Atari is named after a Japanese word mean ‘success’.

8.In Final Fantasy 7, a portrait of Hironobu Sakaguchi (the creator of Final Fantasy) appears on the wall inside of one of the houses in Rocket Town.

9.The original Donkey Kong game (which gave birth to “Jumpman”, later renamed “Mario) was the first video game to feature a story behind the characters and what was going on.

10. Most people will know this but just in case you don't the Konami Code is up up down down left right left right B A.
