Welcome to my Sony collection.

This page is a repository for all of the Sony systems, peripherals, and accessories in my collection – it’s currently a work-in-progress, and I’ll continue to add things as and when I have the time.

The PlayStation is a home video game console developed and marketed by Sony Computer Entertainment. As a fifth-generation console, the PlayStation primarily competed with the Nintendo 64 and the Sega Saturn. The console proved popular for its extensive game library, popular franchises, low retail price, and aggressive marketing. The PlayStation signalled Sony’s rise to power in the video game industry – in less than a decade, it became the first computer entertainment platform to ship over 100 million units.

The PlayStation 2 (PS2) is a home video game console developed and marketed by Sony Computer Entertainment, and is the successor to the original PlayStation. As a sixth-generation console, it competed with Nintendo’s GameCube, Sega’s Dreamcast, and Microsoft’s Xbox. It is the best-selling video game console of all time, having sold over 155 million units worldwide. The PS2 offered backward-compatibility for its predecessor’s DualShock controller, as well as its games. The PlayStation 2 received widespread critical acclaim upon release. A total of over 4,000 game titles were released worldwide, with over 1.5 billion copies sold.

In 2004, Sony released a smaller, lighter revision of the console known as the PS2 Slim. Even after the release of its successor, the PlayStation 3, it remained popular well into the seventh generation. It continued to be produced until the beginning of 2013 when Sony finally announced that it had been discontinued after over twelve years of production, one of the longest lifespans of any video game console. New games for the console continued to be released until even shortly after the launch of the PlayStation 4.
