1995-09-09
The PlayStation (abbreviated as PS, commonly known as the PS1 or its codename PSX) is a home video game console developed and marketed by Sony Computer Entertainment. It was released on 3 December 1994 in Japan, 9 September 1995 in North America, 29 September 1995 in Europe, and 15 November 1995 in Australia. As a fifth-generation console, the PlayStation primarily contended with the Nintendo 64 and the Sega Saturn.

Loved my PlayStation (still have it). I played the heck out of Spyro on my PlayStation.

I'm going to give this a review or a grade as if I was actually in 1995. While I don't think a lot of these hold up today, I can appreciate tremendously what this did for video games at the time, going from CDs instead of cartridges and creating a whole new system out of spite (Thanks Nintendo!) It spawned some of my favorite consoles ever leading up to the PlayStation 5. I'll always be a PlayStation guy and this started it all.

So portable. So sleek. Beautiful design. Ergonomic controls. Some modern day games still pay homage to the graphics of this console.

This this is the System that made me make the switch from Nintendo. Great memories with this system.

I was a nintendo guy but playing Crash Bandicoot or Tomb Raider at my brother in laws was such an amazing time. If I had the money, I would have owned both systems, but it really was a great system.

My dad had his and let me try it one day. Obviously I had nightmares of the graphics since to me they were bad. But the games were fun on it and loved the experience of the old console

My brother committed blasphemy (just kidding, sort of) and switched to the PlayStation as I stuck with Nintendo.
But just as with Sega, the gaming library didn’t appeal to me much (especially compared to Nintendo).
However, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater was a particular standout for me on this console. One of the few games both my brother and I enjoyed (we rarely like the same things).

I was more on the N64 but the leap Sony made with CD tech cannot be ignored. It's weird that the games on the PS1 classic don't reflect all that I think were the strongest. What an entry for a first console.

I remember getting this for Xmas and I was like wtf... this isn't an N64 that all my friends have... but fell in love with games like metal gear, syphon filter, hitman and splinter cell.. I enjoyed sneaking around if u couldn't tell ?. This began the playstation period of my life where mario/nintendo were an afterthought.

I remember thinking it would be difficult for someone else to get market share in the home-gaming industry, but this one worked out pretty well. Metal Gear Solid and FF7 are two of my favorite games of all time.

As soon as I got this, I got Metal Gear Solid and I never saw what the disc looked like. It never left the drive.

I knew I had to own this because Final Fantasy 3/6 was my favorite game, and my hype around FF7 was unreal. Squaresoft had migrated away from Nintendo to Sony, and I had to follow suit. Still, I was a kid and this was expensive. My brothers and I saved our money and managed to get it 10% off when a new Best Buy opened nearby. We were not disappointed! Started with Crash Bandicoot and Mega Man 8. And then the flood of RPGs came in - FF7, FF Tactics, Suikoden, Breath of Fire 3, FF8 and much more. During that time, my N64 was mainly used for multiplayer, but the best single player experiences were on Playstation. I only took away one star because I don't think a lot of the games have aged as well as SNES and PS2, nor was this on the same tier as the Switch.

I was young, but I felt that the build quality of the PS was poor. Mine broke where it holds the disc. It then quickly became obsolete. But it, among Sega's failure, led the way to the PS5 and the greatness quality graphic gaming.

This was not my favorite system and I was a huge Nintendo it at the time, but I spent countless hours playing frogger and Spyro. What else could you want?!

What started a line of the most popular gaming systems ever, is possibly the most popular of it's era. The Playstation had so many great games, and they just kept coming. Pair this with one of the best controller designs ever, and you have a great success story.

Such a great system. The PS1 really changed gaming for me. I was getting older when this system came out and wanted something a little different than just Mario or Zelda. I wanted a game that created a better story and could pull me into the universe. Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, Suikoden, the list goes on and on. I played this system so much that the only way I could play it was placing it upside down. If you know, you know. In my list of best consoles this is in the top 5 for best ever.

A good friend of mine had one of these. I honestly did not play it that often as we were a Nintendo only family for the longest time. But the times i got to play with my friend on this was always something special. I wanted to a PS but my parents only let us have Nintendo.

First system owned that wasn't in house before I was born. Dude, I loved this system. This system was actually where my love for gaming started out. I remember getting it for my 7th birthday & it was the last one in stock. All I wanted to do was play this game & going back through the titles list, so many memories brought back that started with this system. So many nights I was up later than I should have been just in my own gaming world. I can still, to this day, see the start up in my head.

2nd system I ever really owned, but introduced me to such a wide variety of games. First time I’ve played games like Final Fantasy and other great RPGs. I remember being scared out of my mind playing resident evil 2. So many times I’d fake being sick to sit at home and finish a game.

Also, who doesn’t remember having to leave on their PS for 16 hours because they couldn’t find a save point
