PlayStation Promotional Video Waxes Nostalgic for Nearly 20 Years of Console Life

Posted on October 21, 2013 AT 11:36am

A new promotional video from Sony takes viewers on a tour through the growth and maturation of the PlayStation brand over the course of almost 20 years.

The video begins in 1995, the year the original PlayStation launched in North America and Europe (1994, in Japan), and a time when the Internet was still a very new-ish thing, cell phones were not yet pervasive, and yours truly had just started middle school. Time skips forward to 2000 and the launch of the PlayStation 2, then again to 2006 and the launch of the PlayStation 3. The video concludes with a tease of the upcoming PS4 debut coming next month.

Sony’s fourth home console will hit shelves November 15 in North America, November 29 in Europe, priced at $400.
