#Video: Sony taps into nostalgia for the buildup to the PS4

Those who have been gaming since 1995 will appreciate this video. It takes us through the last three PlayStations and teases us with the upcoming one.


Do you remember your very first gaming console? Sony‘s latest ad for the upcoming PlayStation 4 will likely leave you pining for your good ol’ PS1.

Sony tracks the evolution of its consoles from the ’90s through today. The attention paid to detail is impressive: In the PlayStation 1 era (circa 1995), a teenager’s room is filled with the British magazine NME (with Massive Attack on the cover) and an Air poster. Fast-forward to the PlayStation 3 era, which launched in 2006, and sitting above the console is a can of Coke Zero (the soda was introduced just one year earlier).
