Kotaku: Fifteen Years Of PlayStation Domination

Kotaku writes: "Fifteen years ago Phillips, Sega, and 3DO were struggling to get North American consumers to accept CD-based gaming. On September 9, 1995, Sony came along and showed them how it's done, changing the face of gaming as we knew it".

Indeed. People talk trash now, but Sony's lead the way for umpteen years with new kid on the block copying everything it did.

Pay your respect, gamers.

If you agree, say happy birthday, Sony.

This would make more sense if you were talking about Nintendo.

PS3Freak3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )

Disagree. The only thing that Nintendo has lead in; within the lifetime of playstation, is motion controls. Gamecube failed, and as awesome as the N64 was(miles better than the Wii will ever be), it was still playing in the past with it's cartriges.

PlayerX3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )


The Gamecube made more money than the PS2. Proof below

Also the Gamecube had the highest rated game last gen In Metroid Prime. Proof

EDIT: That the problem with fanboys. They disagree with hard facts.

Theonik3424d ago

Your above link proves nothing. You seem to forget the GBA existed.

zootang3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )


So what you are saying is? You prefer a company to make a large profit on the back of you, rather than small or no profit.

"That the problem with fanboys." They don't make sense. I think everyone knows how important the PS2 was for gaming.

What's wrong is you brought up the Nintendo, why? Have you an agenda? Just strange that you bring up the Nintendo in a 15 years of PlayStation article.

PlayerX3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )

@zootang What is wrong with you people. I never once said anything bad about any Sony console and just because I didn't say "SONY IS DA KINGZ OF GAMING" You people think that is hate. Also I never once said I care if a company makes profit or not. I was just showing that the Gamecube was not a failure in business or games.

@zootang Read the 3rd comment. I didn't bring up the Gamecube.

@Below Because what he said didn't make sense

zootang3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )

I replaced Gamecube with Nintendo, big deal. You still don't make sense. If you can make sense of what you are saying. Then I don't think I want to understand your sense of mind.

Again, why bring up Nintendo in the first place?

SilentNegotiator3424d ago

"The Gamecube made more money than the PS2. Proof below"

You posted the companies' overall profits, not their individual console sales earnings/profits. Nintendo's numbers are for Gcube, GBA, waning GBC sales, and beginning DS sales. While Sony's numbers are for waning Ps1 sales, Ps2 sales, TV sales, computer sales, electronic sales, walkman sales etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.

And you're still trolling. I see that hasn't changed.

Seijoru3424d ago

How is having the best quality console and the most quality exclusives leading from the rear? Oh wait you mean that really important thing to gamers, sales.

Imperator3424d ago

I'm starting to think all these 360 fanboys are MS Stockholders. They seem so interested in sales and don't seem to care about having actual games to play.

bustamove3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )

I like Nintendo but you're off topic. Please take your hate elsewhere.

EDIT: Then why mention Nintendo?

PlayerX3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )

Lol I never said anything hateful.

EDIT: Lol I see what you mean. To go against any fanboy statement on this site is hate. What he said about Sony would make more sense if talking about Nintendo.

bustamove3424d ago

Dude, why are you mentioning Nintendo in a Sony related article. We're recognizing that the Playstation brand brought fun years of gaming for everyone that can appreciate their success. Nintendo will always be the best, no doubt because without them, I wouldn't have started gaming. But c'mon, acknowledge that Sony had an impact on gaming as well.

hot-sauce3424d ago

The Gamecube made more money than the PS2. OMG i can't believe someone really said that how can a system that sold 20 million make more $ than a system that sold over 120 million plz someone tell me plz

tinybigman3424d ago

All I know is i have had great gaming experiences with both PS1&2, as well as great gamimng experiences with PS3. This is all that matters to me so all the haters can continue to hate only my opinion matters not there's. Same goes for all systems I own.

TheTwelve3424d ago

Happy Birthday Sony, you'll be the king until someone dethrones you.


Immortal3213424d ago


and so far the wii ain't no where near those number, maybe closer to it compare to the other consoles but not compare to the ps1 or ps2.

the wii didn't reach 100mill yet.

as far as games go, Sony still have the better games, and increasing.

Kotaku? Pro-PlayStation article? No... No way. *vomits*

skynidas3424d ago

lol, I still dont understand what people have against kotaku.

PirateThom3424d ago

It's a blog but presented as a news source.

N4PS3Fanboys3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )

The PlayStation brand hasn't dominated anything since the release of the PS3. It's total Wii domination, with Xbox and PlayStation fighting back and forth for 2nd place.

bustamove3424d ago

What does that have to do with the title and the article itself? Explain.

Everyone knows the Wii is in "1st Place" in this so-called console war. We don't need a reiteration.

OSU_Gamer3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )


The article and the title refers to Sony's monetary domination over the last 15 years.
