Sony Halts the Production of Playstation Consoles


Over eleven years (since the original Japanese release date in 1994) and more than one hundred-million console sales world wide later, Sony is halting the production of their original world-dominator, the Playstation.


Well, let’s face it: you can probably count the number of gamers who don’t own a Playstation (or a way to play PSX games in the form of a PS2) on one hand, and if they haven’t bought one at this rate, then they’re probably not going to own one anytime soon. Still, the PSX had an amazing run, even if the games have been on the decline for a few years now (save for the countless piece of trash budget games we have been seeing released these past few years). I wont forget all the great times I’ve had with the little grey machine that good, and mines been in storage for a few years now (my PS2, with its back-word compatibility, takes care of playing the old, black bottomed PSX discs). R.I.P. Playstation.

And I never owned a PSX, nor wanted one... (I could actually enjoy its games with a variety of people who actually owned the bloody thing)

I've owned 4 of those sexy little grey life ruiners. Godbless them!

I was young and didn't take care of my stuff. So I broke 2 and wore the laser out on the other 2.

There is a bright side to all of this: Sony announced that they were developing a service that allows you to download PS1 games onto your PSP memory stick, and then play them on the PSP. Woot!

I never owned a PSX either...I always rooted for the underdog. I had the choice and got a Saturn, then after a few years solid service traded the Sat for an N64. I actually feel sorry for all those PSX bummers that never got to play NiGHTS or Ocarina of Time!
