Sony Psp: the Real Game Reign

By: Alice Erin

The new Sony Play Station, the 32 bit videogame console of fifth generation was launched by Sony Computer Entertainment in December 1994. Sony PlayStation was the first of the ubiquitous PlayStation series of console and hand-held game devices to get launched. Holding the record of being the first PlayStation and PS video game console to reach the 100 million mark, Sony cuddled the idea of developing a Nintendo compatible. Nintendo compatible was mainly a Sony-branded console but was considered as a home entertainment system playing based on the format used in SNES-CD discs. But later the plans were kept under the wraps.

The Sony PlayStation got first launched in Japan in 1994. Later it made entry in the U.S.

in 1995 and the Europe in the same year. The Sony PlayStation was a big success in the continents of America and Europe. It tasted a huge success in the American continent along with Europe. Its successor Sony PlayStation 2 continued the triumph in the two continents in the later stages. The logo of the PlayStation was designed by Manabu Sakamoto, who later was appointed for designing the logo for Sony's VAIO computer products. Both the logos were big successes taking his name to new heights. Sony PlaySation created history with celebrating the success run for a continuous eleven year period. Since its launch in 1994, the PlayStation enjoyed one of the longest production runs in the video game industry, with merely no competitor. In the production run, obviously like any other electronic gadget Sony PlayStation also had to experience various variants, mostly accompanied by a change in the part number. The Sony Play Station was earlier based on substantially the same hardware as the SCPH-750x and 900x, other model consoles, but with a deleted the serial port, the controller / memory card ports moved to the main PCB and the power supply replaced with a DC-DC converter which was also on the main PCB.

Sony also released a version dubbed "Dual Shock" later, which included a controller with 2 analog sticks and a built in force-feedback feature.
