The original system launched in Japan on December 3rd, 1994. That was 15 years ago! Can you believe that? There was an age before Ape Escape, Wipeout and other such franchises the Playstation made popular.

With the Playstation 2 still officially the biggest selling system of all time, and the Playstation 3 really starting to hit its stride, perhaps it's time we all raised a glass to Sony and their Playstation products. Here's to another 15 years.

If you really want to go nostalgiac, check out this celebratory site.
