Before PS5 vs Xbox Series X, Sony had to start somewhere.
The Sony PlayStation 5 (PS5) is just a few weeks away from an official launch, and while we wait to get our hands on the next-gen console, let's take a look back at the road that brought here. There's plenty of backstabbing, failed launches, and great success in the story that is PlayStation. Grab some popcorn and enjoy!

    I hope Sony gave you a PS5 for making this excellent story. Some great details in here that I never knew, I'll be able to chat more with my friends about these details now while were waiting to get our hands on the PS5, that is if I can. None here in ireland at the moment, Sony should really release new consoles mid year like June or July, that way they'll make sales both mid year and then again during the holiday months as theres never enough consoles on release.

    PS3 price isn't its main problem. It's main problem was its powerful CPU n GPU. Third party Devs didn't know how to use n properly made games for this hardware. They also drop balls for first party Devs that didn't deliver first couple years. PS3 lunch version had everything. U can play PS1 n PS2 games n also get blue Ray drive for the first time.

    I think Sony's marketing definitely dropped a huge turd when it came to the PS3. They didn't do a good job selling the abilities, and cost saving features that were built in. During that period, I had a side job at GameStop. I used to wow people, ALL THE TIME, when I broke down what they were getting for that 5-600.00. People can debate the merits of adding the hd media player, and all the other bells and whistles,'s a point of fact, to get a 360 that could do what the PS3 did, would've cost hundreds more than the PS3.

    Why everybody acts like the only innovations are in the consoles itself?? The main innovations in gameplay is in with what you play -- gamepads. PS5 is the revolution, they made new gamepad with game-changing features, when Microsoft did added only 1 new button, and then everybody still compares xbox series x to ps5, when series x literally not worth buying, they put past-gen gamepad in current-gen, this is awful.
