You forgot to mention that, the first models of the ps3 were backwards compatible with their predecessors.

Cool video, but you missed the portable Playstation systems and their hardware. Thumbs up, regardless.

PS4 does not play 4k at all; i got both the ps4 and 4k tv and that shit is not even being detected other than hdr settings while x1s upscales like a charm; and to me, ps4 controllers are ergonomically disaster for my hands; my palms ache after an hour while I can keep going with x1 controllers for 3 4 hours easily...

PS1 - Played it once at a friend's house PS2 - Elementary School (best memories were bringing it for sleepovers) PSP - Played with it for a couple months & then let it collect dust (bad battery life and game graphics) PS3 - Middle & part of High school (When I started playing COD online with friends) PS4 - Why I switched to PC (paying for PSN was a deal breaker) PS5 - We'll see... Overall, what I was looking for was something that I could have a lot of fun with friends and not have to pay to play online. PS2 and PS3 met these needs for me. There's something about PC that I don't really like even though that's all I play on now.

Nodoby hated the Sega CD, as was mentioned. What kept people from getting into it was you needed to already have purchased the Sega Genesis to add to it, which made it prohibitively expensive if you hadn't. That's why it didn't work. Compounding things, some already jumped into the 32X, which was another add-on at the time and it muddied the waters for these add-ons even more. Sega really screwed themselves by confusing the hell out of their customers/potential customers. I was always a fan but didn't have infinitely deep pockets hence missed both the 32X and Sega CD. Loved Playstation up to PS2, had a ps3 briefly. Haven't got into PS4 at all, nor XB1. :/

*drawl* "Sony beat everyone to 3D" *drawl* "Sega had the 32x and on the Sega Saturn, but neither really caught on" *drawl* So Sony didn't beat "everyone" then. Popularised, improved, sure, but they didn't beat anyone.. least of all "everyone". Both 32x and Saturn were released prior to the PS1, and that's not even counting the Atari Jaguar which came out before ANY of the above systems. Also the Super Nintendo had 3D prior to *all* of the above. Jesus. Also, the PS3 controller didn't have vibration motors, it was shipped without them and only later - a YEAR later, in fact - did Sony release the "DualShock 3" controllers. The PS1 supported RGB output, as the PS2 supported component which had support for 720p and even 1080i in select games. AKA; HD video. "The PS3 was the first PlayStation to allow wifi connectivity, this allowed for a ton of new functions to be implemented, like; downloadable content and multiplayer" Right, unless of course you count the PS2 which also had online multiplayer (and also a handful of downloadable content) How much research did you guys even do for this video? >_>

PS4 has only 8GB GDDR5 memory for GRAPHICS, not for background tasks. It has a laughable 512 MB for the same.
Trey Rich (6 days ago)
a few mistakes. 1) the ps1 did have controllers with analog sticks prior to ps2. not at launch but prior to ps2. 2)also ps3 did not have vibrators at first due to some copyright issue.

One year before this video’s release I built my first PC that was 3 to 4 times more powerful than the PS4 for not that much more money than a new console at the time. The fact that this generation was so shit was the main reason why I jumped ship from the consoles to PC.

SwitchB*tch! (8 days ago)
the only PlayStation worth buying today is the launch edition ps3 because you can play ps3, ps2, and ps1 games. So if you are a dedicated fan, Get the LE ps3 and Ps4 slim.

NotASpyReally (10 days ago)
Man, what a nostalgia trip... Until PS3 came along. You say it's "a pretty big deal" but all I see are better graphics. Not better games. Maybe I just became more demanding with time, or maybe the super good graphics made it a lot worse whenever the game glitched or reacted in some way that reminded me that it was, in fact, a videogame, and not real life. I have a PS3, but I'm not gonna buy a PS4. PC gaming is better now. Anyways, I've always been curious about all of this. Loved the video!!!

Richard Kieffer (11 days ago)
I'm waiting for Sony to make one big unit with maybe one slot for ps1,2,and 3 with BC hardware complete and a pro ps4 in another slot...Then I would play more as I have this phobia that my ps2 and ps3 consols will stop working if I play 2 much. Especially my 90,000 series ps2. I would pay a grand+ for one or 2. ☺

3:04 This is a common misconception. The reason why you can't play a normal disc on a PS1 without modification is because the PS1 disc's have a certain wobble that can't be recreated on normal disc's. (Yes I know there's a disc swap method but It can damage the PS1 or discs. It's not a reliable method) 8:11 PS2 technically had online support with a few games having a online mode. If you mean basic online functions on the system, then your technically right. (Btw, It would hook up via a Ethernet cord)
Natán Sebastià (11 days ago)
3:04 That's not right. Almost all the games are black, but there are some games with the classical silver CD. Square enix had a subsequent production that were made of that silver CD, and they were original, they are a bit rare to find but not impossible, in fact i got that one of Final Fantasy V. I can confirm that I noticed myself before buying it and also that my PSX, PS2 and PS3 detect the same disc as an original PSX game.

I love how he acted like the gap between the releases on ps1 and ps2 in Japan and N.A were so different when the ps2 came out. It was 2 months lol.
Gldmrd (13 days ago)
I had a PSX as a middle school kid in Turkey, it was a giant leap forward from NES for me. Best childhood memories. PS2 set the golden age of gaming history (but had a horrible console design imo :P). PS3 was unfortunately the end of a "Japanese school" in gaming mind-set. That Japanese spirit couldn't be carried to HD. A lot of Japanese classics like Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, Tekken, Silent Hill gradually lost their quality and games in the newer consoles became clones of the American style. Now I am a dissatisfied PC gamer. Giants like EA, Blizzard, Bethesda have became a mockery of their former glory, many outstanding companies dissolved. If it weren't for the companies such as CDPR and independent genius developers, I would think the industry was doomed.

It seems logical to me that they made a PlayStation where you can put in different modules so for example when PS5 is released you only buy a module for graphics and other outdated hardware now they design a totally new model while a lot of hardware stay the same like the blue ray DVD player I think it is much cheaper to replace only the hardware that is outdated and leave only the hardware in place that isn’t outdated a same setup like the pc people that play games on pc only put in new graphics/sound cards because the latest software ask for it so it is totally illogical to buy a completely new pc so why is that not possible for the PS it makes sense.
