  • 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white/grey plastic coating protects a relatively powerless internal specification, which in todays world is completely outdated.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, ...
  • Pros: great graphics for its time .  can play CDs
  • Cons: out - dated by over a decade today .

  • 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
  • Cons: none really

  • Excerpt: "...nevertheless, it was still comfortable. Sony carried on the design with their PS2, and kept the design. In my opinion now it is still second to Nintendo, with the Gamecube. Memory Cards- There are two ports on the console for memory cards. Smaller capacity ones can be purchased for a low price, but ones with a higher capacity can also be purchased for a slightly higher price. Neither are really expensive nowadays as they are getting on a bit. Audio- ...
  • Pros: Lots of good games, still very popular
  • Cons: graphics aren't that impressive, lots of glitches in games

  • Excerpt: "Well, what can I say, I bought my Playststion for when I had a few minutes spare time from doing my homework, but once I was on it, I couldn't come off! I was so addicted to it the first time I used it, and I always got shouted at for not doing my homework! Sometimes after coming home from school, I would even find my mum or dad on it, and they wouldn't let me have a go. Then my little brother started to play on it, and now he won't let anybody ...

  • Excerpt: "...opinion that the playstation from sony is brilliant, there are lots of varietys of games, the only bad side of this console is the graphics are quite good but not as good as some of the others, a own a playstation and i think it's brilliant but in my own words i want a playstation 2, It's had a radical re-style, but the PS one still packs the same amazing amount of power as its delivering good graphics and great gameplay. In addition to a huge library ...

The Most popular console of all time.

  • Excerpt: "Ps One is the biggest selling games console of all time and if you are on a tight budget, or want to please small children, this will be great. For the average teen they will have played this to their hearts content already so buying this wouldn't be a good idea as PS2 is backward compatible. So if you want the latest games this isn't the one for you, this is for the occasional gamer who wants classic good games to play while travelling or on the ...
  • Pros: The most games a new generation console has .  One of the only consoles playable in car, small and portable, games still widely avaliable
  • Cons: New games not being made often, not as good graphic wise as the new generation consoles

  • Excerpt: "i bought my ps1 around a year and half ago when my playstation bust. When i first saw it i was amazed at how much smaller it had been made compared to the original. It is ideal for being on the move unlike the original otr the ps2 because of its size and weight. The one disadvantage it had when i compared it to my original playstation is that it can not be chipped externally this means that you can only get the games at full price. I was enjoying ...

  • Excerpt: "...is something for eveyone - Sony obviously saw this and so made them compatible with the PS2. Graphics of course reflect the age of the console, and so are nothing like that of a PC - sound is good though, although its not 5.1 dolby digital it is still good CD quality stereo, which is made even better if you connect the console to a hi-fi. The relaunch of the Playstation as the PS1 ensured support, games and accesories would continue. Due to its huge ...
  • Pros: Cost, Huge number of games, accesories etc .
  • Cons: Getting a bit old .

  • Excerpt: "Playstation, once the king of the consoles.. even the lure of Mario couldn't turn people to the N64 with their over priced games over the playstation. My first ever console was the sega mega drive, bought for me when I was much younger.Years later as new consoles such as the N64 and playstation came out I realised it was time to move on to bigger and better things and after much thought I invested in the playstation. I absolutely adored it. The playstation ...
