PLAYSTATION (September 9, 1995-????)
Sony knows there stuff
"This is Pauline!" The PSgirl.
This system was suppose to be the 32-bit Super Nintendo CD add on, then Nintendo didn't want it anymore after the falling sales of the rival SegaCD. Sony just released the Playstation themselves in 1994 in Japan, marketing it as a powerful 3D system. As the Playstation grew so did the support. Big companies like Capcom, Konami, and of course Namco only released their best games.
I recommend the original
Playstation still you wanna spend your money on actually games and not
power (like its sequel; the PS2). There are some really excellent PSgames
still in the discount bins like CastleVania: Symphony of the Night,
Final Fastasy 7 & 9, Tekken 3, The Raiden Project, and tons more. Not
only that but there are also some fairly rare ones to like DragonBallZ:
Final Bout, Final Fantasy Tactics, and Fox Hunt, great for collectors.
But on the same note beware of all the games out there too like Cyberia,
Descent, Hexen, and Final Fantasy 8. Although there are still more better
games on the Playstation than the Playstation2 so far.
Sony Playstation's Overall Rating: 78/100 prehaps the smartest buy today although it's starting to show it's age now.
DragonballZ GT Final Bout
*Tons of games in all categories
*CD'S have way more storage capacity on them than cartrdiges
*Many famous developers support this system (I.E. Square, NAMCO)
*Affordable prices for many games (10-80bucks, LUNAR is 80 btw)
*Not too many TFMV (Totally full motion video) games (ie, Dragon's Liar)
*Has an MPEG2 board built in to play back awesome video
*Loading times can be long in some games
*Some weak 2D features
*Lots of sequels that do the same ol' thing (I.E. Tomb Raider III)
