The PlayStation journey began in the year 1995 in the West, and today is one of the main brands of the videogame industry worldwide. How was the release of the platform in September 1995? How did the rest of the generations that followed the 32-bit platform continue? Today we see some of the games that baptized the different generations of the Japanese machine.
We review the videogames that the different generations of Sony consoles launched in their day to imagine what will happen with the new platform of the brand, the PlayStation 5, when it launches next year 2020, according to the latest AMD sources. What games will arrive with PS5? You can give us an idea if we see what the Japanese firm and its various partners have done in the past.
The original PlayStation games! The muscle of Sony’s first console was exhibited with the incredible conversion of Ridge Racer, which practically emulated Namco’s recreational. On the other hand, others like Battle Arena Toshinden or Jumping Flash showed the letter of presentation of the console: total commitment with the polygonal graphics. Wipeout put on the table Psygnosis, the best Japanese partner of the Japanese.
The time that passed between the Japanese and the European premiere of PlayStation 2 only had one positive thing: the machine arrived in Europe with a catalog more than in its country of origin, allowing players to enjoy from the first day of unpublished productions in Japan. However, the strength of Namco again stood out in the Sony console, with a Tekken Tag Tournament far superior to the original recreational or Ridge Racer V, which showed the technical power of the console.
Repeated the history of PS2: there was a significant delay between the Japanese and the European release, so the catalog took advantage of many multiplatform games from companies like Ubisoft, Electronic Arts or Sega that had already been released on Xbox 360 and the different exclusive releases made in Japan. The two main exclusive tricks of PlayStation 3 in its launching were Resistance: Fall of Man and MotorStorm.
PlayStation 4 broke with the tradition of its three previous consoles, premiering first in the West and a few months later in Japan. PS4 and its users took advantage of the digital catalog to significantly expand its premiere collection, but also enjoyed many trans-generational releases that could be played on two different generations of PlayStation as Call of Duty: Ghost, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag or the sports games of 2K and EA. They highlighted the exclusive Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack; It was left in the Driveclub inkwell, which postponed its release a few months after the arrival of PS4.
