Sony games down memory lane with a look at every PlayStation so far [video]
Starting out with the PlayStation (a.k.a PSOne) in 1995, the video shows a group of university-age gamers in London as they go about their regular lives, listening to music and doing a bit of gaming.
After that, the video smoothly time warps past the parties of 1999 to the year 2000. The gamers are the same people, though they haven’t aged (Timelords?). They are wearing the style and listening to the music of the new millennium. They’re also playing super-selling, thanks to its DVD-playing abilities, PlayStation 2.
The video then goes to 2009. The same gamers are of course playing with the PlayStation 3.
Each time transition shows the culture changes between years, but the console at the cente of the dorm room never changes. Sure, the console model varies, but each time it’s always a PlayStation (beneath a Sony television, obvs).
The video ends in a very future-fancy dorm room setting: Blue-ish lighting, lots of sleek technology, but with those same gamers. The main thing to change? They’re now rocking PlayStation 4 beneath a Sony HDTV.
