Then and Now: PlayStation

DualShockers writes,

"The PlayStation brand infiltrated the North American gaming industry on November of 1995. It was then that this virgin epithet made its mark and embarked on a decade and a half old journey to perpetuate on the idea on providing its consumers with new evolving technologies and experiences in regards to gaming. Entering the competitive industry during a time when both Sega and Nintendo had already dominated gaming, few skeptics thought Sony's newly conceived console would not fare well against the Sega Saturn or the Nintendo 64. Consoles like the overpriced Panasonic 3DO, the under-supported Atari Jaguar, and Apple Bandai's late-comer Pippin, were amongst many consoles that failed to penetrate the gaming industry with the brute force that both Sega and Nintendo had governed. However, with sheer determination, and a pretty hefty wallet, Sony fearlessly entered the already paramount plateau reserved by competitors Sega and Nintendo, and changed and matured gaming from that point forward."

Pretty informative too, I'd say. Pretty good article, and, from the looks of it, another one for the Xbox is being done for next week. Wonder if Nintendo is going to be on that as well.

Yea I'm almost certain they would do one on Nintendo too. After all, Nintendo probably has the richest gaming history out of the three.

This is not the case on N4G. People here would die for their console of choice.

Very nice article though.

One of the best quotes I've ever heard regarding gaming. That right there is something Martin Luther King Jr. would have said if he was trying to merge fanboys from all consoles together :)

Don't say the F-word, you know how it can get on here! Play it cool. It is an awesome piece though, can't wait for the Xbox one!

I wonder what is going to be said about the Xbox, though. I'm pretty sure it's going to be good since this one was well written.
