With the PlayStation 4 reveal just days away now, Sony are kicking up the hype with a look back at Sony’s illustriousness history in videogames.
A new video entitled “The Beginning” looks set to be the first in a run of videos about the “Evolution of PlayStation” – most likely looking at one of the companies console/handheld releases each day until February 20.
“PlayStation’s arrival to the world of gaming signaled a change in the status quo and a sign of things to come,” said Sony’s Sid Shuman on the PlayStation Blog. “The original PlayStation system emerged in 1994 in Japan as a dark horse challenger, a seemingly outgunned newcomer entering a crowded field dominated by legends of the 16-bit era.”
“PlayStation’s advanced technology and innovative controller design won raves with critics and gamers, and in 1995, the system expanded to North America, Europe, and Australia.”
“Accompanied by a powerful salvo of titles including WipEout, Crash Bandicoot, and Gran Turismo, PlayStation’s rapid rise marked the end of one era of videogames and the dawn of another. The world was never the same.”
Sony have nailed the marketing for the PlayStation Meeting so far and we just hope that, whatever happens on Wednesday next week, we’re blown away.
