One of the UK's leading electronic recycling companies has announced it is to carry out the first stage of recycling one of the world's most pioneering and popular videogames consoles, the SONY PlayStation...
R.I.P o'l friend..
360's all over the world are all ready recycling themselfs and the houses there sitting in
@David I turned on my 360 to play Cod4 this morning when... http://www.1up.com/media/03... Looks like I'm buying LBP after all.You guys win.I surrender
oh man ... so many great experience with the ps1 i will never forget r.i.p my friend
As much as i love you Steve its not like you weren't warned
Sad really.I barely played for an hour when I was playing Deathmatch,game freezes,I press the power button...red red red :( I was planning to get Fable 2 but I will go with LBP instead on the 21st
There cheap now you should buy a spare
No if after November it goes down again,I'm not buying another.Simple as that
rest in peace you served well
Someone should make a PSone montage. dont worry Sackboy is going to take care of you. Attack of the Sackboy avatars.
yeah, thanks PS1 for the great memories i'm playing your games on the PS3 now.
And to all a good night
....but not without leaving her legacy in capable hands. On a serious note, I fondly remember getting Battle Arena Toshinden with the PSOne, but buying Oddworld:Abe's Oddessy, and Gex seperately. I miss Oddworld, and I logged so many hours into Gex, my fingers still have the extra padding from the healed blisters from so many years ago as a young, bright-eyed teen....Goodbye. You were a bar-setter, a standard-lifter, a great gaming system.
soon be there but instead of heaven it going to hell :D
i have fond memories of my ps one. i loved colin mcrae and toca touring cars most
The console that brought us to where we are today.. *Salutes*
mind was ridge racer . Why hasnt there been a destruction derby sequel yet .
LITTLE BIG PLA-Oh,playstation 1!!!!hmm lets see now,I think it was Fighting Force...or was it final fantasy 7...I cant seem to remember very well,LBP has made my memory fuzzy!!
It was Battle Arena Toshinden. I got it with the console. I never liked it though. :P
My first game with it was Spyro 2.What a superb game
i remember ridge racer , do you remember when you have that arcade game at the start ( Raiden Space Ship kind of game )to unlock all of the cars but you only have like 15 seconds to do it brings back good memories toshinden was good but tekken was the best
you'll be missed
How time fly's, it just felt like yesterday we were sitting patiently waiting for the loading screen to finish. Fond memories, here is to ya PSX.
Wow that was a time with the PLAYSTATIOn Brand.. everybody had it.. and now.. The PS3 fails. Never a playstation brand sold less than 20k/ week in Japan.. the PS3 does it. And dont come with 360 sales there.. PS3 wont even reach 50 Million.. poor.
Your bubbles are begging you to get an education
lol calm down the ps3 is only picking up steam, it hasnt even been out for 2 years in USA let alone Europe and your going to judge it sales??? Think about this the Xbox 360 and Xbox combined have not yet reached the sales of the ps1 and given the way the industry was much smaller 15 years ago i think its safe to say the xbox is the ultimate fail of a console dont you think?
The console that really opened up gaming to a whole new audience. Remember playing Gran Turismo or Metal Gear Solid or Final Fantasy VII? Epic, epic days. Definitely one of my favourite consoles, probably just behind the SNES in fact, definitely top 3.
I completely agree. The PlayStation will always be one of my favorite consoles. It was the first with true high-speed 3D graphics and gameplay and it was the first, in my opinion, to really bring the arcade experience home. Jumping Flash. That was some fun stuff.
oh god those were the days!
it's being recycled in order to be turned into something else... if that's not hinduism, i don't know what is!
Thx For All The Crash Games Naughty Dog And For All The Spyro Games Insomniac And For The Best Childhood Memories Sony :)
you will be remembered forever. Tenchu FTW
I still have mine! It is in cherry condition still. With cutting edge rumble controllers. Of course, I still have my Saturn as well.
Cherry? I completely wore my PS1 out. Toward the end of it's life I was turning it upside down just so it could read games. I definitely got my money's worth out of it.
PlayStation 1, the system that started the end of my social life :D You will always be remembered as the first system which imagination/technology > money
As much as I wasn't really a fan of the PlayStation when it was launched, I can respect everything it has done for the industry. Well done little feller, better times await in about ten years on ebay...
great system, wish i still had it, well it will live on in my ps3.
Will receive the same kind of respect if it was the once this article was about..... probably not.
still got my first launch ps1 with FF7 i do not give SQUARE ANY CREDIT FOR FF7 ITS ALL SONYS AND THE FIRST XBOX DOESNT DESERVE ANY CREDIT
PS1 = my first official gaming console, I was about 7, lol. Although, I still remember playing mgs, crash bandicoot, spyro and all the other awesome games on that legendary console :). Great times. Well who knows, maybe you'll be recycled it into the plastic used in the case of a ps3, lol :P
I still have the original ps1 with the 3 prong conection I heard its worth 5,000.00 on E-BAY not selling it.
my original ps1 sits on a shelf back home. It got the hell beat out of it but the thing still works. Ah those were the days, when tony hawk games were still awesome (thps2 to be specific) and crash bandicoot didn't suck.
its kind of like a funeral, i liked my old consoles but sometimes you have to move on :( the week before i got my ps3 my ps2 was stolen :( was a fat one never had any problems , i think ill pick up a ps2 and a ps1 if i can find one somewhere jsut to have
Those were the days. They were a fun company back then.
but the legacy lives on with the PS3. Twisted Metal, FF VII and MGS kept me going for a LONG TIME. Now.. Twisted Metal Black, FF X and soon FF XIII and MGS4 are doing the same. Salute!
Enjoy your stay in Heaven old friend
