The first Sony Play Station went on sale today in 1995. It seems like it's been around much longer than that. I'm not a consistent gamer but I have plowed through a couple of "Call of Duty" versions.
My wife is a pretty serious gamer. We also use the PlayStation for a Blu-Ray Player and movie streaming. By the way, if you are a fan of great audio, the Play Station audio converter must be awesome because audio from it is pretty incredible!
