Each generation is a new generation of microprocessors - almost. The Great Video Game Crash separated two generations which used the same processor.
  • Pong era: None.
  • Atari era: 8-bit 6502.
  • Great Video Game Market Crash
  • NES era: 8-bit 6502, Z80
  • 16-bit Era: 16-bit W65C816S, 68000
  • 32-bit Era: MIPS R3000, 32/64 bit (matter of argument)
  • Modern Era: Common processor types like PowerPC and Pentium with near-PC specs

I don't feel like diving into generations of processors in the modern ones. I stopped console playing somewhere between the 16 and 32 bit era.
