The PlayStation Logo

Our 27-year-old son Kyle does his serious gaming on a PlayStation 4 (PS4). He rents a house with 3 other guys and sometimes has to share gaming time with them. 

But, he reports that all the guys do love to play on his PlayStation 4, and it's often in use even while he's at work!

Quick History of PlayStation Gaming

This is what the first PlayStation home console looked like.Early PlayStation Console

In the late 1980s, Sony Corporation and Nintendo partnered-up to develop video game hardware and games in a joint venture.

However, by 1993 the partnership had collapsed, and Sony began work on it's own stand-alone console, the PlayStation. Their first model was released in 1995, and is pictured above.

Throughout the next two decades, Sony developed superior 3D graphics and sound systems which kept the PlayStation competitive in the cut-throat video game wars. They also worked closely with third-party game developers, which resulted in an impressive stable of popular Indie titles.

Today, Sony's PlayStation 4 is overwhelmingly #1... with current sales over twice that of #2, Microsoft's Xbox One.
