  1. I still remember my very first time seeing and trying The PlayStation. I had this old best friend Daniel and his mom had to go into a nursing home because of her bad health and Daniel went to his sister's godparent home. Well one of the times I visited him he and his godparent's son asked me if I had heard of The PlayStation? I looked at them Daniel especially at disgust and said you know that I'm into Nintendo only of course I have never heard of The PlayStation. They showed me it and I was interested in it just out of curiosity to see what the competition is to Nintendo 64. And they asked me if I wanted to try it and I said of course and then they handed over the controller and my first impression of it was wait this looks exactly like a Super Nintendo controller in fact it's a more updated version of it why is that? I was really confused about it lol. Daniel asked me if I remember that port on the bottom of The Super Nintendo? I said yes that port that was never used for anything why would that have anything to do with The PlayStation? Daniel said well as you probably heard Sega Genesis had a CD add on called The Sega CD and Nintendo wanted to have the same thing for The Super Nintendo and at the same time a Sony employee who created the sound chip for The Super Nintendo which is why the music on Super Nintendo Games sounded really good and sounded like real music. But they made a deal to make a CD add on for The Super Nintendo and it was called The Play Station. I was dumbfounded by finding that out and I asked what happened why they never released it? Daniel said because Nintendo wanted to have control over it and Sony was going to have practically all of the manufacturing and the CD rights. I said of course that's Nintendo for you๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’. So they didn't want the process of getting into the game industry to go into vain so they decided to make their own system and The PlayStation is the result of it? Daniel said yes. So I tried it and I played Crash 2 and I really enjoyed it. Daniel asked me if I enjoyed playing this game why don't you asked your mom for a PlayStation this Christmas and I said because I would be a traitor to Nintendo that's how they get their money from fans. Daniel said yes that's true but they expect you to get other systems because there might be games on them that won't come to their system. But ultimately I didn't ask my mom for a PlayStation.

  2. I got a copy of Silent Hill, and I have three different options for a PlayStation:
    1. The PS1
    Pros: The original console
    Cons: Will only play PS1 games of course, wired controlers, needs memory card

    2. The PS2
    Pros: Compatible with both PS1 and PS2 games
    Cons: Larger than the PS1, wired controllers, needs memory card

    3. The PS3
    Pros: Compatible with PS1 and PS3 games (and PS2 depending upon the model), wireless controllers, no memory card
    Cons: If I want PS2 backwards compatibility, I'll have to get an older PS3. The older ones tend to die out from what I understand. Also the older PS3s are kinda bulky, but size isn't too much of a problem for me.

    Which one should I get?

  3. Hey, Metal Jesus, quick tip- for your favourite games, have a designated memory card. This way, if you run out of space saving on a card with multiple games, you can save all your, say, Tomb Raider files on a specific memory card. This really helps, because I've come up short of space a few times, and there's nothing worse! Just saying ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Who needs fancy technology and multi-million dollar game budgets, when you have the PS one!? It was cheap-ish, ran decent, great games, and my favourite console! The PS2 close second as I have nostalgia attached to the PS one xD love these consoles, man! ๐Ÿ™‚
