Do you remember when games were little more than a collection of polygons and grainy textures? There’s a good chance that you grew up during the PSone era, then, which means that you’ve been lucky enough to live through the technical progression of the PlayStation brand since its very inception. For those of you that have joined us more recently, though, this PlayStation Access video does a great job of plotting the path of Sony’s major home consoles.

The video actually uses thematically similar games to illustrate its point, and it’s pretty impressive when you see the transition from PSone right through to the PlayStation 4. We must say, though, putting footage of Knack directly after Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction probably wasn’t the best move – we reckon that Insomniac Games’ platformer currently trumps Studio Japan’s upcoming next generation adventure.
