I am thankful for being an old school playstation gamer. the original playstation represented what is the most important aspect in gaming. 3rd party support.

It's sole success was thanks to the massive amounts of 3rd party support the system received. they did not have difficult contractual obligations to contend with. if a company wanted to make a game for the PS1...they made a game.

They sort of took that open nature from Sega (to a degree) because after the issues nintendo had with 3rd party lockout, most devs went with sega because sega welcomed the open market of game development. Sony took that one step further and capitalized on having a platform that wasnt going to shun away a game because it didnt fit into any particular genre. The games laid the ground work for all the different genres to come from since.

Many want to say it was the exclusives that made the platform so great, and I would agree but it was really their openness to pretty much any sort of development that paved the way for the modern "Playstation" era.

Happy birthday old friend. 20 years and counting.

Don't know why you disagrees on that statement. Nintendo/ SEGA was good but PlayStation brought gaming to a level that caught everyone by storm.

20 years of excellence. I'm proud to have been there from day #1. Through all the great years and the rocky times in between. I support PlayStation because they have earned my loyalty. Congrats to Sony on reaching this impressive milestone.

lets hope he says he bought server farms for PSN.

Abriael1406d ago

Sure. He picked up the wallet, went out to Akihabara, and came home with a bunch of servers. All by himself.

MajorGecko1406d ago (Edited 1406d ago )
