Birthday Memories: Sony PlayStation Turns 15

It's hard to overestimate the significance of the PlayStation 1. The console market, in the 16-bit generation, had been split pretty evening between Nintendo and Sega -- but Sega was decimated, and Nintendo began its long pre-Wii downward slide with the Nintendo 64, thanks to a new competitor: Sony.

Happy Birthday PlayStation!

The PS1, or Playstation, was crap.

The Sega Saturn was the better platform, and Nintendo made far better games.

The PS1 strategy was to approve and release just about any game that was developed, thus enforcing the "quantity" over "quality" marketing and design strategy..

Sony's complete lack of quality control in that era was notorious IMO.

Yeah...you're living in bizarro land.

Ps1 was Better. Sega Saturn was just plain and Boring and had no games. I owned both. Only good games i had on Saturn was Virtua Fighter and some other weak stuff.

Playstation, you've given gamers so much joy!

given trolls so much hatred, envy, jeolousy.

tinybigman2568d ago (Edited 2568d ago )

games like the Resident Evil series, Final Fantasy, Gran Turismo, Suikoden,and MGS just to name a few were crappy as hell./s

Sorry, I got started w/ videogames on a era of atari and nes consoles. The playstation was just another boring machine to me..

Boody-Bandit2568d ago (Edited 2568d ago )

That's ironic cyber because you are just another boring troll to us.

cyber_crysis2568d ago (Edited 2568d ago )

sorry, but PS consoles for me will always be the black mark in gaming, and the Playstation 2 wasn't much better (though it was a bit better, it was nothing compared to the Gamecube). And I still spend the bulk of my game time enjoying the Xbox 360 and the Wii.

Sorry, but ______ is a piece of worthless crap that didn't have any good games and sucked.

Oh look at me! I'm not a troll because I put "sorry" at the beginning.

thebudgetgamer2568d ago (Edited 2568d ago )

im 32.

we got to stick together us old timers. lol

N4GAddict2568d ago

11 years old for Dreamcast.

Silly gameAr2568d ago

I think there was a Dreamcast article earlier.

15 years though. And SNES (best console ever)even older. I feel so old.

siyrobbo2568d ago

dreamcast was the best console i ever owned. nothing has compared since. Maybe because i had more time to actually play on it all those years ago, it replaced my ps1 and i never looked back

after the dreamcast died i gave up games until i got a 360, and i only got that so i could have something HD to use on my hdtv

Silly gameAr2568d ago

I gave you an agree and a bub. Everyone has there own opinion about which console had ( or has) the best of the best, rather it's games or just the overall experience.

darkvenom2568d ago

remember buying my first Ps1 in 1998 with resident evil 2,and mgs.such great memories. : )

nevin12568d ago

Thats when i 1st got my PS.

PS1- 10/10

PS2- 10/10

PSP- 7/10

PS3- 7/10(this gen sucks)

Good work Sony

Omar912568d ago

i dont see how you think ps3 is a "7/10". the economy before was nothing compared to now. developers cut back on games, quality games as a matter a fact thus leaving less games to play. the amount put into the system was hard for sony's launch as well. alot of factors came into this gen and i think sony is doing an excellent job at maintaining there quality works in terms of system and games just like the ps1 and ps2. so i respect your opinion but i dont agree with it.

nevin12568d ago

PS3 games arent as impressive as PS1/PS2 on gameplay standpoint.

This gen blows compared to the Nes-PS2 days.

Horny2568d ago

Its my Birthday and Playstations B Day.
My Girl got me Playstation Move Bundle, cant wait to actually receive it next friday.

LeShin2568d ago

Did you get the 'Sensitive Fireman' to persuade your girl to get you it? :-)
