Summary: My oldest son has trouble staying attentive. We feel the Playstation has brought us a long way since Christmas, 1998. He can focus on the game for extended periods of time (approximately 45 minutes). It has also helped him improve his motor skills. Worth investing.
Pros: Develops motor skills and an attention span in children who have difficulties.
Summary: This is my second Sony TV and I'm as delighted with this one as I was with the first Sony TV I bought. The first one finally gave out after almost 12 years of heavy usage. Repairs have been minimal. If Sony quality continues at this level, I can't imagine every buying any other brand of TV again.
Summary: When this console cam out it out sold every console for years. The games was on Cd not cartridge. Even though slower loading but the games graphics was better the game player was better and the overall was much better than any console around that time. The best controller to date when it came out. fits just in your hands. The games was awesome. Even though now it is a bit old only good for young kids or collectors. But this is a true classic console.
Summary: Now a days you can pick up a PS1 for dirt cheap, although I dont know why you would when a PS2 can play them just as good. At the time I thought they were a little too expensive. My brother got one for his birthday when we were in middle school and we loved it. Tekken 3 and Final Fantasy VIII (My favorite Final Fantasy of all time) were our favorites. I guess for me its the memories of a console that make it valuable.
Excerpt: "...the first version of the Sony Playstation wasn't necessarily pretty. This system was pretty much a gray box with two control slots and two memory card slots. There was later a new slimmer design that released right after the debut of the Playstation 2 and it was a much nicer and more compact design. The smaller design had a few features added to it, the most noticeable was a small LCD screen that could be connected to it, which was great because you ...
Pros: Great Game Library, Great Graphics Overall, and Good Multiplayer .
Seems Like Too Long Ago I First Set My Eyes On This!

Excerpt: "After producing a quick review of the Playstation 2, I thought it necessary to take a deeper look at its predecessor, the original Playstation! A white/grey plastic coating protects a relatively powerless internal specification, which in todays world is completely outdated. It is true however, that the casing looks pretty good. You could even describe it as slightly futuristic in design. It's made from hard Polycarbonate or ABS plastic, ...
Excerpt: "I owned a Playstation when they were new, I didn't buy mine right away though. Instead I was sensible and waited for a 1st then 2nd price drop when I bought mine in 1996. New games were still being released pretty much every week so you had a huge choice. I've had my current Playstation for over 8 years now having bought it off Ebay with a few games, a memory card and an extra controller for under £30. It was slightly damaged (the aerial input ...
Pros: Easy to find, cheap, tons of games available
Excerpt: "Really I keep this unit more for nostalgia as it is no longer needed with Playstations backward compatability and it's graphics are old and dated and the games are only 32 bit compared to the systems of today. But when this baby came out it was a show stopper, the games were addictive, large and thought out, sprawling maps to explore great graphics and sound and a revolutionary controller. I have had the exact same playstation one working since ...
