Origins

Although Hal Halpin has claimed credit for coining the phrase with the renaming of GameWeek Magazine to "Interactive Entertainment Magazine" in 2001, [Interactive Entertainment Merchants Association. "Hal Halpin." Wikipedia. 2006. Wikimedia Foundation. 10 Feb 2008 < [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Hal_Halpin&oldid=33748830 http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Hal_Halpin&oldid=33748830] >.] the phrase was in use as early as 1981. [Tomczyk, Michael. [http://www.atariarchives.org/c1ba/ Compute!'s First Book of Atari] . Greensboro: COMPUTE! Books, 1981.] Halpin's official biography now claims that he "popularized" the phrase "to describe the convergence of the console, online, and computer games sectors." ["About the President."
