Nineteen years ago Sony released the PS1. It was during the time of Nintendo Vs Sega (think Genesis and Super NIntendo era). Originally designed to be an add-on to the Super Nintendo, Nintendo decided to drop development on the system and move towards the N64 and it's cart based system. Sony moved forward and released it as a stand alone system.19 Years later we are at the 4th generation of Playstation.
Yes, there's a lot more history of how PS1 came to be, but this post is to say "Happy Birthday"
