The first video game system by Sony which came out in 1994. Like other popular systems (ex. the Sega Genesis, the Super Nintendo, the X-Box, the Playstation 2, etc.), it also has a good mix of classics and complete fucking garbage. While many people who bought a Playstation may have seen gaming as dorky, they were probably closet gamers in the first place. Also, anyone can play a Playstation (or any system for that matter); it's not limited to those who have some sort of stupid grudge against hip-hop. After all, if video games had nothing to do with hip-hop or rap before the Playstation, then Nintendo was stupid for doing the "Zelda Rap" and Sega wouldn't have had Ice Cube in their Sega Saturn ads.
"Crash Bandicoot, Parappa the Rapper, and Final Fantasy Tactics are good Playstation games."

One of the first console to utilize in an actual GPU, while ones before used regular video proceeding utilities, the Playstation was way more advanced, and could do a lot more, handle a lot more, and all and all be a lot more than it's competition (N64, SN, Dreamcast, ETC.) It was also one of the first systems to read CD-ROM. All in all very powerful, and was also one of the first systems to utilize emulators.
SomeGuyFrom1994: Damn dude, look at these Playstation graphics, they are three dimensional! TO MUCH TO HANDLE!!!!!!

A Sony gaming console franchise that began, really, with the Play Station console that never made it to market. The first PlayStation that the world knew, the PlayStation-X (or PSX), was released in Japan in December 1994. At the time, it was a particularly advanced console in several ways, and its success was guaranteed by the wide range of software secured for it by Sony and the way it was marketed as something that was 'cool' -- often blamed for the 'decline' of video games, by making them a source of entertainment for the public at large.

Since the initial launch of the Sony PlayStation, Sony have released a PlayStation 2, which used DVD-ROM technology and had a look that was very different from the original PlayStation. However, the PlayStation 2 is inferior in graphical quality to the Nintendo Gamecube and in power to Microsoft's Xbox, and its continued success was reliant on its status as the 'cool' gaming console, and also on the range of high quality software secured for it by Sony.

In 2005, the PlayStation Portable, or PSP, was released. It marks Sony's first real foray into handheld gaming, and supports a wide range of media -- including UMD movies and music. With incredible graphics and a widescreen display that surpasses all other handhelds in size, the PSP is an impressive piece of hardware. The Nintendo DS (Dual Screen), its main contemporary rival, is currently leading the pair with its innovative design. However, for 'hardcore' gamers, both are a must.

European gamers were outraged at Sony's decision to release the PSP months after its Japanese and North American releases, in September 2005. This delay, justified as a shortage of units, and Sony's desire to withhold their stock until the Japanese and American markets were sated, compounded the feeling of neglect by big gaming companies of gamers in Europe.

Currently, Sony's next piece of hardware in the franchise, the PlayStation 3, which promises to be a powerful next-gen console, is in development and due for release in 2006.
