Following the enormous success of Nintendo’s NES Classic and SNES Classic retro consoles, Sony are getting in on the act by resurrecting their beloved original PlayStation. First released in the UK more than 20 years ago, in 1995, the PlayStation is remembered fondly by millions of gamers across the globe.
Sony’s first foray into the gaming scene, the first console in the incredibly successful PlayStation line introduced us to games such as Crash Bandicoot, Gran Turismo, Driver, Tekken, Spyro and many more. With 3D graphics that far outstripped those seen before on a home console, a vast library of games and a controller design that instantly became iconic, the PlayStation was a roaring success.
By the time it was replaced by the PS2, the PlayStation had become the best-selling home console of all time (since usurped only by the PS2) and established Sony as a major player in the gaming world. Now, you have the chance to experience what made the PlayStation such a success all over again.
