Transcript of Evolution of PlayStation

It all started when the first PlayStation console was released to the public. It was simply known as the PlayStation. Later on, Sony released a new console, christened the PSone. It had optional accessories and was one-third the size of its older sibling (which made it very portable), but retained the functions of the PlayStation. The PlayStation line didn't end there. Consumers in were greeted with the sight of the PlayStation 2, which could act as a DVD player too (it was the first of its time to be able to boast such a feature). It also toted backward compatibility with PlayStation games, and high quality visuals. Just like what had happened to its predecessor, the PlayStation 2 was put on a diet. It became slimmer and much more quiet. Did we mention it could connect to the internet, too? Then, Sony decided to go handheld. It brought its PlayStation Portable (or PSP) to North America. The PSP made use of a small but deadly disc (in terms of storage space), called the Universal Media Disc (UMD). But Sony wasn't satisfied with all of that.
They decided to cram a more advanced graphics processor (RSX), the Cell Broadband Engine, and the ability to play games, music and movies, download content from the PlayStation Network, and browse the internet all into one console. The consumer's visual and gaming experiences were brought to whole new levels. The PlayStation 3 had arrived. After that, the handheld PSPgo was not endowed with the ability to play UMD's. For games, pictures, movies, and other content, it was given an internal flash memory of 16 GB. Wifi. 3G. Dual analog sticks. Two cameras. A 5 inch OLED touch screen. A touch pad in the back. These were what awaited the buyers of the PlayStation Vita, Sony's latest handheld device. Close to 25 games were available at the time of release on February 22, 2011, and around 100 were on the way. Entertainment as well as the industry of games were forever changed by the birth of Sony's PlayStation brand and console. Please refer to separate document for sources list.
