"A chiptune, also known as chip music, is synthesized electronic music often produced with the sound chips of vintage computers and video game consoles, as well as with other methods such as emulation. In the early 1980s, personal computers became cheaper and more accessible than they had previously been. This led to a proliferation of out-dated personal computers and game consoles that had been abandoned by consumers as they upgraded to newer generations of these platforms. They were in low demand by consumers as a whole, and not difficult to find, making them a highly-accessible and affordable method of creating sound or art."

POPULAR+CHIP+TUNE+MUSICIANS (why plus signs - to educate you that whenever you try to post links in a blog post it turns "spaces" into "+" signs. I'm forcing education into you or maybe to tell you the truth in myself. Lo0L)
