Live In Your World, Play In Ours
Released first in Japan in late 1994, the PlayStation was Sony’s first home video game console. It was quite different in that, the PlayStation when first launched, was geared towards non-traditional gamers. Sony saw that both, Nintendo and Sega had a virtually monopoly on younger gamers and actively ignored what was considered the primary market for video games, children and teens, instead focusing on a group that was largely ignored at the time, adults. This proved quite successful as the system went on to sell over 100,000 units within its first week of release in the United States.
