PS2 was my first PlayStation console, after that I bought PS3, PSP and PS4 at launch. I also bought a PS1 and Vita later on. And I've already placed my pre-order for the PS5, can't wait!

PS1 was my first console. I’ve been a PlayStation gamer ever since. Can’t wait for PS5!

Same.PS1 soon after release. I was actually late to the PS2 party as gaming too a back seat to family back then. But I've owned every Sony console and surely intend to buy a PS5 day 1.

I’m looking forward to the PS5 celebrating 25 years of PlayStation with FULL backwards compatibility with PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 discs and digital downloads so that they can be played in their original modes and with PS5 performance boost!

I bought saturn on saturnday but not long after I got the ps1. Games like ridge racer, philosoma, jumping flash... classics still to this day.

yoshatabi557d ago

Same. Well it wasn't my first. I had other older consoles before PS1. I stayed loyal when it did release though

You can pre order a ps5 right now?

Nyxus558d ago

In my country there are game two stores that offer pre-orders. I already paid a deposit of €50 in fact. I think there's a good chance stock will be scarce around release given the popularity of the PS4.

Donnie81558d ago

Nyxus..... cool I could be wrong but I don’t think you can pre order one anywhere in the US yet

UltraNova558d ago (Edited 558d ago )


Its a pre-order with the store, sort of a deal between you and the store as a "promise" to get in on the day 1 list; its not a guarantee mind you. You can ask at local stores to see if they do this. My local store does it too.

OT: 25 years of PlayStation...what a ride... It took me some time to buy the ps1 (got it 1998) since I was deep in Nintendo land(N64) back then but once I did I never looked back. So many many more to come still.

Here's to another 25 years of PlayStation!

Atari 2600 was my first console, from there I had a NES, SNES, N64 but once I bought an original PlayStation with my first 2 games being Resident Evil 2 and Final Fantasy VII I could never go back.

Going back to the fun times !!
Hanimex Pong, Apple IIe, (The orig top down Castle Wolfenstien FTW) , NES, Megadrive, PS1, Then went PC/Mac gaming.. Quake with mods, like Urban terror... Soo fun... Dropped Console gaming, Saw a mate play MGS3 on a PS2 ? was impressed... Though didnt like Controllers, preferred M/K , But He talked me into the PS3 and a 360.. 360 didnt ge much use, I really had fun with the PS3, and pretty much dropped PC gaming.... Now a PS4 pro with VR, (Xbox just doesent do it for "Me", I find PS titles more to "my" taste), and I still have a capable gaming rig.. soooooo...
Def a fan of PS.... Cant wait to see what the PS5 will bring...

Hey Nyx, still having a blast with Death Stranding.

I don't usualy buy consoles day one. I wait a year tops, and then buy it.... but if the statements about full B/C are true, im really considering to get it day one.

Hardiman558d ago

Several months ago there was an article stating Sony was patenting some sort of emulator tech. It sounded like they are trying to get it to run all games. This was right before they announced PS5 would be BC.

Hardiman558d ago

Where can you pre order it? I'm ready!

Nyxus558d ago (Edited 558d ago )

I ordered it in a Dutch game store, not sure about other countries.

Hardiman558d ago

I was premature on my comment because all I had to do is scroll down to the link you provided. Thanks for letting us know!

REDGUM558d ago

I didn't know you could pre order a ps5 so early on?
The full specs sheet isn't even out yet!

I'm curious as to weather it'll play 4k movies or above, in true 4k so i don't have to purchase something separately.

Regardless..... congratulations to Sony and PlayStation for all 25 years of entertainment.
Its been a blast and have definitely been happy with every console that I've brought.

Exvalos558d ago (Edited 558d ago )

34 dislikes, really disgusting for such a positive statement he made. Hmmm you preordered a ps5? No date, price point and no console shown.

mechlord557d ago

modded PS2 was my first, having been on pc prior mainly with SNES, and a bunch of Sega consoles... never looked back. Ps3 phat with bc , ps4, ps4pro and soon to be ps5. Life has been great.

ILostMyMind557d ago (Edited 557d ago )

Atari was my first console. In my memory Mega Drive is the best console ever made. But I miss my AquaPlay.
