Ken Kutaragi, known as the “Father of Playstation”, started it all when Sony teamed with Nintendo to create what is now known as the Playstation. Playstation enjoyed 11 years of production in the Video game industry, which was one of the longest in history. After the split with Nintendo, Sony enjoyed much success due to Kutaragi’s vision of doing away with the old “Cartridge” style console games.
With the subsequent release of Play Station 2 and Play Station 3, the number and themes of the games was increasing. With the launch of the first Playstation came the first set of game titles. Among them were; Battle Arena Toshinden, Twisted Metal, Tekken, Warhawk, Air Combat, Philosoma, and Ridge Racer. Each of these games went on to inspire sequels.
Following the original and through the introduction of each new Sony Playstation console, came a new array of games. Titles to inspire and lure every gaming taste. While there are literally hundreds of games available for any of the Sony Playstation consoles, here are just a few of the titles:
Aquanaut’s Holiday, Arc the Lad (1,2,3), Baroque, Bloody Roar, Castlevania, Colony Wars, Command and Conquer, Dino Crisis, G-Darius, G-Police, Guilty Gear, Jet Moto (1,2,3), Judge Dredd, Lord Monarch, Lunatic Dawn 3, Metal Slug, Motor Head, Motor Toon Grand Prix 2, Oasis Road, Populous(the beginning), Resident Evil, Shadow Tower, Sheep, Street Fighter Alpha, Tekken 2, Yamasa Digi Selection, and many, many more.
The Sony Playstation games are available for use on the console, and also available as downloadable games via the Playstation Store. As with most gaming systems, once they have a hit, they run it out, producing a 2, 3 and sometimes even 4th version of the game. This practice has proven not only to keep existing fans of the game, but recruit new players as well.
Sony competitors now are not those from back in the day. Now, instead of competing against Nintendo, Microsoft seems to be its biggest competition. What this means to the consumer is that we can enjoy the spoils of the battles, no matter who proves victorious. Sony currently has the lead, with the use of the Blu-ray technology in its consoles, but the game wars continue.
Sony Games continue to entertain consumers, and the constant addition of new game titles brings in even more gamers. Scan through the hundreds of games available from Sony, and you are sure to find the perfect fit.
