Twenty years ago I was a teenage Sega fanboy looking forward to the Saturn. A good friend of mine started trying to talk me into this upstart competitor from Sony, called the PlayStation, instead. He eventually convinced me to take the chance and it ended up being the right decision. The Saturn and its Dreamcast both flopped and Sega was out of the console game. I had years of great gaming on that original beige-grey PSX. Following it were the PS2, PS3, PS4 last year, and two portable consoles the PSP and PS Vita. The PlayStation brand is still going strong.
To celebrate the 20 years, Sony has announced a special variant of the PlayStation 4 in the original PlayStation’s color scheme instead of the black of the PS2/3/4 and have a special 20th anniversary tag on it. The PlayStation Eye Motion Controller and Dual Shock 4 controller also match the old Playstation motif. The 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4 can be pre-ordered starting Saturday morning, December 6th. Only 12,300 of these special editions will be produced.
