I consider myself a PC gamer, but some of the exclusives on the PS1 were freaking fantastic. Anyone else grow up with Spyro and Crash Bandicoot? What a great childhood.

 If Playstation hadn't come along, console gaming would have remained mario trying to fight a mushroom.

I used to feel the same way. But then Microsoft fired everyone responsible for all of those bad decisions. Today, I love Microsofts pure gaming direction and I think that they've got a better grasp of the market than Sony.

+Jmeon4eva Not a chance. Xbox is far behind the PS, the PS3 had the most powerful CPU and GPU of its time, 2006 until the PS4 or any powerful gaming pc that outruled that fact. Xbox 360 has the most little kids screaming into the microphone. Xbox 360 has a weaker CPU than the PS3, the Xenos or Xbox CPU only has 3 cores, when the PS3 has one core controlling 7 other more powerful cores, making it possible for far better games with 10x the graphics and 10x better gameplay, but developers of its time were too lazy and not many ports were made for it until it was getting extremely popular in 2010, In America at least. Xbox is not, and will never be the best console, even with it's popularity, it will not be better. Unless you watched the video, Sony made a more powerful console than any other at it's time, it had flawless 3d graphics gameplay with more polygons to fit on objects in the game. It also made gaming to what it is today, without the PS gaming would still be considered for kids and nintendo would have ruled the gaming community, even if the xbox still came out, it would have much less games and they would be specifically made for kids, including the fat controller.
+Jmeon4eva ...Or worse, considering Xbox gave birth to the legend of little underage kids playing Rated M games and screaming into the microphone at a public game because of rage. Playstation will always be further than the Xbox, you or no other xbox diehard fanboy cannot deny this fact even if they have a witty fact to say. If the PS had not came into the market, Xbox would not have existed.

Well, yes. Playstation, as a hardware platform is a brand.

Nintendo and Sony for ever! Microsoft can go die in a hole! And it'd be cool if SEGA magically came back (which will never happen).

+Nostalgia MadPspmad That can't be possible, as retailers said (Not literally) that they were not carrying any kind of SEGA console from what I read or heard.
+Nostalgia MadPspmad Yeah, truth be told I actually like Microsoft. Nintendo and Sega have always been my favorites... But I'm a softie for all companies :D It'd be cool if they could all live forever :(

Xbox fanboys go away, PS started everything, even your kiddy xbox 360 controller got reference from the PS controller, Xbox would be the biggest shit ever if the PS had not come.

Gamer88 a number doesn't sell consoles, games do, Saturn was a pretty shitty console when it comes to games, while PlayStation has the best on the market

Nope not Nintendo at all. Microsoft killed Sega from the inside when they partnered with them on Dreamcast. I mean come on They announced Xbox right after Sega announced Dreamcast as discontinued. Sounds like an inside job to me.
