    I didn't even know the Playstation existed until after the Playstation 2 came out. LOL
    But that's probably because I didn't know game info could be found on the internet, didn't have any gaming magazines, and my TV didn't show me shit. Plus I was a Nintendo kid.

    LOL How did Sony invent gaming if some kids thought Sony only made TVs? I mean, before all the cool gaming sites came around.

    I think we can say that PS1 was the first accessible console (I'm too young to have known Atari and other Commodore 64, but my brother told me that games and consoles were really expensive at these times)

    If you actually read the article, what you'll find is that Sony didn't claim they invented gaming at all, only "legitimized" it. I think this is true, before the PS1, the majority of people who played video games were "nerds". The PS1 made gaming appealing to more "normal" people, made it mainstream, and any of your fanboy-based claims to the contrary are exactly that. Fanboy talk. You only want another reason to hate on Sony.

    They don't really claim they invented gaming, they say they legitimized gaming.

    It's still a big fat lie though. As I said in the other topic, Sony's gaming department won't last much longer if they keep going by 'offence is the best defence'. Tsk tsk.

    EDIT: Damn you, Thoob! [​IMG]

    Yeah, so glad Sony had their Playstation there when they helped bring the market out of the great video game crash back in the 80s.....oh wait, that was Nintendo! In fact, it was Nintendo that got them on their first feet in the first place with the SNES CD addon, which turned sour when Nintendo cancelled the contract on account of Sony trying to take advantage of all profits related to that addon.

    EDIT:

    But let's go back onto the subject. If Sony believes that the PSOne was what made video games legitimate, then they must have ignored even the fact that the name "mario" in the gaming world had grown more fame than even "mickey mouse" in cartoons before the PSOne was ever conceived.

    First off, the title is bullshit. It doesn't say they invented gaming, it says they legitimized it. There's a big difference there. Not even Nintendo invented gaming.

    Second, Sony makes a lot of stupid statements. From calling the Move "Wii HD" to a lot of other stupid things, it's something you get used to.

    I wouldn't say they legitimized gaming, but they did a lot for it.

    It seems like people here just love to jump on the hatetrain for Sony whenever they goddamn can despite not recognizing what they've done for the industry.

    I like both Sony's and Nintendo's consoles and games. [​IMG]
    They both contributed a lot to gaming, unlike a certain ***soft that keeps producing shovelware.

    The thing is that Sony has been present in a lot of important moment of gaming and technology. Just look at the Blu-Ray technology. With that they improved entertainment world, not only gaming. People should not forget that Sony in not only a gaming enterprise.
