PlayStation immediately evokes not only so many great memories of gaming down through the years but also the promise of all the things yet to come. I hear PlayStation and its gaming defined. I'll use a certain word here...amped. Definitely amped to see this and it is a fantastic lead in to what is going to be a landmark year for PlayStation.

This will be great to watch, and just before the PS5 launch too. It's going to get the Blue PS blood running. I actually can't wait to see it.

I have two of the anniversary edition controllers. Paid $120 a piece for the but I don't want to use them cause I don't want them to wear so I just keep them in PS4 controller cases. The only time I actually use them is if I'm playing a PS1 game on my Raspberry Pi.

It was a pretty simple strategy: give a variety of games to a variety of gamers. And be consistent while raising the bar.

Others need to watch and take notes.

No denying Playstation opened up gaming to a lot more people (that might not of been interested before). I still remember seeing Wipeout being demoed in a local shop and being blown away by it, and I had been gaming since late 70's early 80's.

Sega's surprise Saturn lsunch and the late arrival of the N64 paved the way

I would of said Sony managed to hit the right generation at the right time and with the right attitude/marketing, putting Playstation booths in dance clubs for instance. Have DJ's make music for games (Wipeout) etc.

Nothing was overhyped by Sony. It was basically here is the "Playstation"
