In the beginning, companies like Nintendo sat on the throne of video games. Then another Japanese giant called Sony appeared. The giant produced its own console called the PlayStation in 1995. Sony and PlayStation are household names today, thanks to the PlayStation and PlayStation 2. Gamers loved them both, but it wasn’t mainly due to the ability to play music or DVDs. They loved both because of the numerous AAA titles. Games such as Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy X were enough alone for some consumers to purchase the consoles, other less noted video games like Crash Bandicoot and Rogue Galaxy were a bonus; icing on the cake. Because of this, Sony dominated the system wars for two generations. They look to do the same in the coming years, to go back to the roots of what made the PS1 and PS2 great, which is games. However, the light dimmed with the release of the PS3.
