RetroCollect FM - Retro Gaming Podcast - Episode 8: Do Not Underestimate The Power of PlayStation

Episode-8-Do-Not-Underestimate-The-Power-of-PlayStationIn an attempt to round off our coverage of the 32-bit systems on our retro gaming podcast, the RetroCollect Squad delve into the retro gaming juggernaut known as the PlayStation. With an incredibly rich history behind it and a plethora of memories to discuss, our hosts get caught up in Sony's earlier days and their iconic titles.

From Final Fantasy VII to Resident Evil to Ridge Racer to Tekken, the Sony PlayStation really had it all. Needless to say we're full of admiration for Sony's abandoned Nintendo-based creation, something which we're anything but shy in showing. But for us, it wasn't just the games - the selection of periphirals, advertising campaigns and the introduction of gaming being 'cool' is hard to dismiss.

So whatever you might be up to today, settle into your activities with some nostalgic 32-bit love in the latest episode of RetroCollect FM. See if your favourite PlayStation 1 titles match ours, and indulge in the vast knowledge of our host, Chris, as he talks us through the birth of they system which further defined our gaming world today.
