Sony has released a short retrospective video which provides a look at the original PlayStation. It chronicles the console’s launch as well as that of the DualShock Controller. We’re going to assume two more of these will be released for PS2 and PS3, respectively. Seems obvious now what next week is all about doesn’t it? Still, we won’t know for sure until then. Watch below. Thanks, CyberMarco.

PSone celebrates its fifteenth birthday today, as detailed by this splendid SCEJ page.
The machine launches on December 3, 1994 in Japan, and went on to sell over 125 million units.
It took almost a year to get out of Japan, launching in the US on September 9, 2005 and Europe on September 29 in the same year.
What’s left to say? A beast. A boxy, grey beast. Little life-changing man: we salute you.

Capcom’s Christian Svensson said today that the company plans to release more of its PSone titles on PSN in the near future.
According to a question asked over on Unity regarding Resident Evil games coming to PSN, Svensson replied:
“The first PS1 titles for PSN were submitted last week. When I have some dates for them, we’ll let you know. Word I got back this morning is that this may take a bit more time than anticipated. We’ll keep folks posted. And for now I’m still not discussing what title(s) they are. We’ll discuss it when we’re through the pipe a bit further.”
More soon, hopefully.
