Playstation is 15! |


Yep, 15 years ago Playstation launched, I duly sold my Sega Mega Drive to buy a Playstation instead of a Sega Saturn on the basis of Formula One alone. Since then there has been the Playstation 2, PSP and now Playstation 3 whilst along the way launching many successful games series such as WipEout, Gran Turismo and Uncharted.

Sony computer Entertainment Japan has launched a website celebrating the birthday which is nicely designed and includes some tasteful wallpapers located at I reccomend you take a look.

    Happy 15th Sony. When I was little i chose an Nintendo 64 over the playstation, bad move. Its well deserved that the Sony company is still around, they’ve made the best console of all time in the PS2 and some of the best games evr made in history. Good Job and good luck in the future. 🙂

    I was 8 lmao. we didn’t get one for a couple years or so after launch, though (until then, we only had Sega Genesis, which had to be replaced a few times because the A/c port would stop working. at least used systems were only like $15 at the time) but until the PS2 came out, the original playstation dominated

  • Happy 15th!

    Good old day, I did hard work all summer on the familly farm to gather the 626$ required to buy the ps1 and ridge racer on day one.

    I remember showing 30 minutes before store opens, I was alone and the store had 3 system if I remember correctly.

    The original system I bought still works, but sometime we have to keep the console at 45 degree angle otherwise it does not read some discs.

  • I had to turn my PS1 upside down to get it to work in its latter days, the problem was the laser over time would fall down and wasn’t close enough to read the disc..

    yeah, they used cheap plastic on the older systems to support the laser. Later models used a metal slide for it, though, so they were more reliable then
