Excerpt: The Sony Playstation seems like it is the oldest game system out there but it’s really not. It came out when I was like ten, which was about 9 years ago, but sometimes people don’t feel the need to upgrade their systems. I am one of those people.
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.
Excerpt: I first got it in 1996 for my christmas I was 6 years old when all my friends had it, I nagged my mum to get it, my favorite game at that time was spyro the dragon! Me and my sister would play it for hours. Now that I look back at the games I used to play the graphics where amazing for it's release and the stereo sound made it even better! I think that if I could I would still buy one right now! But my missus isn't letting me!
Summary: Even though it is nearly 20 years old, the playstation 1 still remains in perfect working order and still evokes the childhood excitement I felt back in the day. Epitome of nostalgia for me. I have a added it to my collection of playstation consoles (ps1, ps2, ps3 and ps4) where it still gets played as much as the others. I guess what I'm trying to say is, the playstation 1 is not dead and it is still worth the effort to buy.
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: This marked Sony's debut in the world of Video Games and what a great debut it was with the Playstation. I review in five different categories, Design, Controller, Graphics, Multiplayer, and Game Library. The design of 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.
Pros: Great Game Library, Great Graphics Overall, and Good Multiplayer .
