Who Invented the Play Station Console?

I wrote this article not because I am an avid fan of this console game nor somebody paid me just to promote this thing. I wrote this article just to give you an idea on how this console game called PlayStation revolutionized our entertainment world and how it affects the lives of millions of people around the globe especially the younger generations. Every time they would come out of a new or upgraded version of this console game, people are just going crazy just to get a unit of it.
Well, just to give you a brief history. The PlayStation is a video game console produced by Sony Computer Entertainment. Ken Kutaragi who was dubbed as “The Father of the PlayStation” was the brainchild of this console. A Sony executive and a hardware engineer at that time. The console's origins date back to 1988 where it was originally a joint project between Nintendo and Sony to create a CD-ROM for the Super Famicom. But the deal was broken by Nintendo after they were unable to come to an agreement on how revenue would be split between the two companies, Instead they entered partnership with Philips a multinational company specialized in engineering and electronic products.
After the success of its first release of the PlayStation way back on 1994 and selling millions of units around the world, they released an upgraded version which they called PlayStation 2 and soon afterwards they also came out with the PlayStation 3 version that also hit the market around the world. It was first released in Japan on 2006 and followed internationally thereafter. It is a direct competitor of Xbox 360 by Microsoft and Nintendo’s Wii.
The PlayStation 3 console was first officially announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2005, and was released at the end of 2006. It was the first console to use Blu-ray Disc as its primary storage medium and a seventh generation game console from Sony. The PlayStation 3 was originally offered with either a 20 GB or 60 GB hard drive, but over the years its capacity increased by up to 500 GB. Year to date, it has sold over 80 million units.
Well, I wouldn’t be surprised if they would come out a version 4 or 5 even up to the 10th version of this console. It makes them a lot of money anyway.
On the other hand, I was really amazed by this PlayStation thing, not only because of its graphics and features which admittedly really impressive but also how it change our lives be entertained, especially our kids. Our kids nowadays just stays at home playing their PlayStation….
