This new PlayStation ad is nostalgia overload

1 min read


I remember getting my first PlayStation, all the way back in the 1995 holidays – I got the thing with Tekken, Wipeout and Ridge Racer, and played all three of them until my eyes bled. This UK-specific video detailing the history of PlayStation since 1995 pretty much captures those magical moments – and beyond – quite spectacularly.

It ends, of course, with the PlayStation 4 and its pretty damned amazing boot sound. I’ve been contemplating axing my PS4 pre-order recently..and now, I’m not sure I can. There are new memories to forge.

So then…tell us. What are your PlayStation memories?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
