Update: You can read Game Informer's full story, The First 25 Years, through here.


Game Informer’s cover is perhaps best associated with jaw-dropping game reveals, but this month it’s serving up some celebrations, as PlayStation celebrates its 25th anniversary. The latest issue promises “a massive chronicle of the PlayStation’s origins and history”. You should expect a 24-page blowout, featuring interviews “with more than a dozen of the men and women who were present during PlayStation’s most pivotal moments”.

The synopsis continues: “Our story covers PlayStation’s prehistory, from the days when Nintendo and Sony were planning a CD-ROM add-on for the SNES, to the present. We spoke with some of the biggest names in the company’s history, including Ken Kutaragi, Shuhei Yoshida, Andrew House, Mark Cerny, and many more. In addition, we shed light on some of the lesser-known people behind important elements such as the PlayStation’s memorable startup sounds, its iconic controller design, and other aspects that have withstood the test of time.”

The exciting news is that you’ll be able to read the article in its entirety on Game Informer’s website later today, and we’ll update this page with a link as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, you can point your peepers at the issue’s gorgeous cover art, which is embedded above.
