In 1996 my big brother bought the original PlayStation for himself but like any younger brother I owned it after that and all he got was all the lectures about being good big brother from our parents, Anyways this is not about his sob story. All I can say is, It was the best time of my life graphics was as real as life and it run CD’s which was as good as being James Bond with his futuristic gadgets. Back in the day everyone use to say that graphics cannot improve anymore we are living the pinnacle of our times, How wrong we were. Graphics these days I do not have even words for them and now I am sure they are not maxed out and I will see much more improvement in them in the future, Maybe one day they will beat life and become more alive and beautiful then real life (for some they already are).
PlayStation (Japanese: プレイステーション Hepburn: Pureisutēshon?, officially abbreviated PS) is a series of video game consoles created and developed by Sony Computer Entertainment. The brand was first introduced on December 3, 1994 in Japan with the launch of the original PlayStation console. It now consists of four home consoles, as well as a media center, an online service, a line of controllers, two handhelds and a phone, as well as multiple magazines.
The original console in the series, the PlayStation, was the first video game console to ship 100 million units, 9 years and 6 months after its initial launch. Its successor, the PlayStation 2, was released in 2000. The PlayStation 2 is the best-selling home console to date, having reached over 155 million units sold as of December 28, 2012. Sony’s next console, the PlayStation 3, was released in 2006 and has sold over 80 million consoles worldwide as of November 2013. Sony’s latest console, the PlayStation 4, was released in 2013, selling 1 million consoles in its first 24 hours on sale, becoming the fastest selling console in history.
At today’s PlayStation Experience keynote, Sony showed off this little retrospective for their consoles to celebrate the brand’s 20th anniversary. Built on the LittleBigPlanetengine, it shows the likes of Parappa the Rapper, Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal, Kratos, and Joel and Ellie from The Last of Us among others, all played by Sackboy, who mugs for the camera with glee. It’s the sort of thing you can’t help but watch more than once. Have a look.
