The biggest-selling CD-based console in the world, PlayStation, has just got a new makeover. The PSone is the video game system that delivers arcade standard games into your home. Custom-designed microprocessors and breakthrough internal architecture lend PSone immense speed and fantastic graphic processing power.
Not just for games, PlayStation can also play any standard audio CD through a TV set.
The PS One is a smaller, redesigned version of the original PlayStation platform. It was released on 7 July 2000, and went on to outsell all other consoles throughout the remainder of the year—including Sony’s own PlayStation 2. The PS One is fully compatible with all PlayStation software, but compatibility with peripherals may vary. The PS One model also had additional changes, including the removal of the parallel and serial ports from the rear of the console, and the removal of the reset button (the power button is also labelled as a reset button, but the console cannot be reset without entirely turning it off).
