Video: Sony PlayStation: 15 Years In The Making
Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has shared a video today as part of their celebration dubbed Sony PlayStation: 15 Years In The Making.
To quote: Today we celebrate 15 Years of PlayStation, the gaming industry and most importantly, the PlayStation fan. It is an honor to officially kick off our celebration on the PlayStation.Blog with a retrospective journey and history lesson 15 years in the making.
The PlayStation, the PlayStation 2, the PlayStation Portable, the PlayStation 3 - these aren't just names to Sony gaming products - these are milestones in every gamers' coming of age story.
Twisted Metal, Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy VII, Killzone and God of War, aren't just clever titles to PlayStation classics - but defining moments in gaming history where PlayStation stands above the rest, delivering memorable experiences and jaw-dropping moments.
Sitting at PlayStation and being part of this amazing journey as a gamer and now working with the PlayStation team, I can't help but recollect my first encounter with Metal Gear Solid.
Within moments of popping in my PlayStation Underground disc, and booting the MGS demo - I knew right there and then what I wanted to do with my life. I must have shredded through several layers of protective coating on the PlayStation disc, playing the MGS demo over and over, patiently waiting for Hideo Kojima's classic.
If I can define my favorite PlayStation moment in two words, it would be: Pyscho Mantis.
Where were you on September 9th, 1995?

And may the playstation go on for many more years as i have been there since the start myself and it has been an awesome ride..hats off to you sony for the 15 years.
I still have my PS1 from back then. Brings back good memories of MGS1 and C&C Red Alert.
I also have a mint shape ps1 which is modded and works great and i have 2 ps2's mint shape modded ones which also works great, well then ps3 is next as i wanted to hold off till they hacked the ps3 and the price coming down.
But i still use the ps1 and ps2 as their are tons of games to play and ones i haven't even tried yet.
The Playstation has turned 15. Congrats!
