ALL ABOUT PLAYSTATION

PlayStation is a video game console developed by Sony Play Entertainment. It was first introduced in 1994, making it 26 years old already. It may feel nostalgic for some, but do you remember the first ever PlayStation console? It was a groundbreaking moment for gamers.

It had short controller wires, a memory card for saving and loading your games, and how you would need to keep cleaning the game CDs from scratches to make sure it would be usable. Did you also experience blowing on the CD slot when the game loading takes too long? No one really knows it it helped, but it was a classic PlayStation move. What kind of games did you play on your PlayStation? I clearly remember "Bust A Groove," "Metal Slug," and "Syphon Filter."

Playstation 2 with controller

Just after a few years, PS2 was released in 2000. It is part of the 6th generation video game consoles and received high praises for backward-compatibility with most PlayStation games. It became the most popular and most successful console in November 2005, selling 155 million units as of 2012.

The successor to the PS2 is Play Station 3 (PS3) which was first released on November 11, 2006. It competed against Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii, all of them being part of the 7th generation of video game consoles. The PS3 was unique for using Blu-Ray Disk technology as its primary storage medium, and for having the PlayStation Network for social gaming services.

In September 2009, the Slim model was released. It was lighter and thinner than the original version with a redesigned logo, marketing design, and a change in start-up software. In late 2012, a Super Slim model was released which further refined and redesigned the classic console.

In November 2013, the PS4 was released. It featured an AMD Accelerated Processing Unit. AMD stated that it was the most powerful accelerated processing unit it had developed at that time. It allowed remote play, streaming gameplay online, improved controller buttons and analog sticks. It also supports HDR10 High-dynamic-range video and playback of 4K resolution multimedia.
