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.
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.
Pros: Great Game Library, Great Graphics Overall, and Good Multiplayer .
Seems Like Too Long Ago I First Set My Eyes On This!
6 July 2009
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white/grey plastic coating protects a relatively powerless internal specification, which in todays world is completely outdated.
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.
Pros: Easy to find, cheap, tons of games available
Summary: So, after buying this console i was firstly quite amazed at the size of it. Even after looking at numerous pictures of the ps1 i was still shocked at the dvd box sized contraption. I think it should be also noted that the memory card DOES NOT come with the system.
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.
Excerpt: Birth, Betrayal and murder (possibly) In 1979 Phillips and Sony joined forces to try and create a new Digital audio format. It took until late 1982 for the new Compact Disc to reach the market.
Pros: The start of the golden age of games .
Cons: No reason to get one,all games can be played on next gen consoles
Excerpt: I got the ps1 for christmas when I 6 or 7 years old. It didn't break down until I was nearly 16, when we decided to get the PS2. In it's day, the PS1 was one of very few games consoles, and it was probably at the top end of the market.
Excerpt: I got the playstation about 4 years ago, my mum surprised me after school. When I got home it was there waiting for me :-). for the next few months i couldn't stop playing it. The games i got with it were Fifa Road to World Cup 98, V-Rally, and Bubsy 3D.
Pros: Lots of good games, still very popular
Cons: graphics aren't that impressive, lots of glitches in games
