Gaming milestones all around us, but few with as much value as the 21st anniversary of the PlayStation. Sony’s leap into gaming has forever changed the arena, and it would be wrong for us not to pay proper tribute to one of the greatest titans in the console wars.

The official European PlayStation blog has created a cute video, compiling some of the best memories of the console.

If you’re at all like me, you probably remember turning on the console years ago to that signature sound, and playing one of numerous classics. Some of gaming’s greatest found their way to this console. Games like Final Fantasy VII and Spider-Man will forever cement themselves into our hearts and minds.

 

Revolutionizing disc-based console gaming, this console set the stage for quite a bit to come. playstation_1_logoThe PlayStation was originally developed as a disc add-on for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, but Sony clearly managed to find their balance in this market.

It’s exceedingly pleasant to see such a prominent console brought to its fourth iteration. To 21 years of excellence from Sony, and to hoping they continue to keep this momentum in future console generations.

If anyone’s wondering, my favorite PlayStation game was actually Winnie The Pooh: Tigger’s Honey Hunt. I’m not joking.
