Misplaced Melodies #4: Glory to The PlayStation

Brian Cowan says, "I actually hated Sony and their PlayStation when it first released in 1995. Up until that point I had been a hardcore Sega fanboy and the threat that this new system posed to my favorite brand angered me to no end. Fanboyism aside though the games of the 1990s in general had some awesome soundtracks, and Sony’s first system is no exception."

LOL! 100% Same here!

Die hard Sega Master, Sega Genesis, Sega Saturn player!
(But I was also a huge fan of the NES and SNES!)

But what turned me to consider the PlayStation is when I got to see and play Macross VFX Missions imported from Japan by my Filipino world boxing champion friend in his house back then.
And I was amazed by how smoothly the 3-D graphics were compared to the Saturn.
But I still did not budge to get a PlayStation until I get to play Castlevania Symphony of the Night and was blown away about the 2-D graphical detail.

My younger brother was bugging me to get a PlayStation after the games on Saturn became scarce and few. So we got a PlayStation and our first game was Resident Evil.
And because I had not much money I beat the games two times without a memory card.

Since then I have been a die-hard Sony fan. Except for the days of the Dreamcast my primary system is always Sony.
