Since launching 20 years ago, what's your favorite PlayStation memory?

With PlayStation having launched 20 years ago in December 94, what's your favorite serious or humorous memory of PS in the last 20 years, be it something very funny happening while you were going to buy a game, or while you were playing one, or something you saw happen to someone else. It doesn't matter if you weren't even born in, or before 1994.

Re: Since launching 20 years ago, what's your favorite PlayStation mem

Playstation 2 was the first console that came out after I had a job. So I stayed up all night and went to the midnight launch (well, in Best Buy's case it was just early morning, like 7:00 am). I ended up buying the system a handful of games and the four player adapter (I have no idea why, I never used the damn thing). All in all I spent at least 800 dollars that day, something I would never dare do today, yikes!

Anyways, because of all that, PS2 will always hold a special place in my heart and I have fond memories of it.

I was on the other side of that launch, working for Sears in the electronics dept., where our store was accidentally shorted on dozens of PS2 systems (we ended up getting only 3 for the launch). Let us just say my experiences that day were far less pleasant, and far more mobbish and fist-fighty.

Re: Since launching 20 years ago, what's your favorite PlayStation mem

I remember getting my PS2 as a HS graduation present. It's an older model fat one and it still works. Only had to replace the controller and the AV cords. Started out with Draken: The Ancients Gates and Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance for it and have branched out since then. Haven't regretted it .

As for Playstation, finally got a PS3 and like it so far. Looking forward to more time playing both it and my PS2.

I'll probably move up to a PS3 when the PS5 comes out. I'm usually about two generations behind.

Re: Since launching 20 years ago, what's your favorite PlayStation mem

My favorite memory is when Sony released their 20th anniversary edition PS4, limited it to roughly 13k units world-wide and decided to not put it up for sale in my country. Great times.

No, I'm not salty at all.
