We couldn’t wait and let this be a “TBT” post, as Sony put out the most epic piece of nostalgia in order to promote its upcoming gaming system, the Playstation 4.
The video, “For The Players Since 1995,” takes gamers down memory lane, bringing it all the way back to the original 1995 Playstation. The setting is a dorm room in London, and stars a college-aged guy, his buddy and his girlfriend.
Starting with the original Playstation, the sights of games like Tekken and the sounds of Crash Bandicoot bring 90s gamers back to their childhoods.
The setting changes slightly, with the London skyline growing in the background, and we fast forward to the early 2000s, with the Playstation 2 at the forefront.
The scene reflects the times, with sneakers changing from the 1994 version of the Air Jordan 3 to an updated version alongside a pair of red patent leather Bapes, sitting on the floor next to a magazine with Franz Ferdinand on the cover. The Playstation 2 launch screen is shown, followed by footage from one of the Resident Evil games.
Time progresses even more, and while the fashion and décor of the room change, the activities don’t, as the Playstation 3 we all know and love becomes the centerpiece. The Playstation 3’s time has finally come to a close, however, and it is now time for the Playstation 4 to reign supreme.
With one final jump to the present day, the London skyline grows even further to include The Shard and the guys fire up the Playstation 4. For any gamer, this video is an absolute must-see. Check it out below!
