Sony Playstation turns 10, well, sort of.

Playstation OneSony's Playstation phenom is heading into its tenth years as a player and powerhouse in the video gaming world.  First announced in May of 1994, and launched in December of 1994 (in Japan), the Playstation - now dubbed PSOne as you know - still has a place on many gamers shelves.

The Happy Birthday celebration arrived at somewhat of a midpoint between announcement and release date this year, as the 1UP folks have posted a sex, lies and video games type retrospective of the PSone.  They take us back to the days of the Sega Genesis to Saturn transition, the Atari Jaguar, 3DO and more (as a MAC Mac user, I had to shake my head at the site sight of the Pippin) for a great story of the events surrounding the birth of the Playstation.  A great read.
