When this console cam out it out sold every console for years. The games was on Cd not cartridge. Even though slower loading but the games graphics was better the game player was better and the overall was much better than any console around that time.

The best controller to date when it came out. fits just in your hands.

The games was awesome.

Even though now it is a bit old only good for young kids or collectors. But this is a true classic console.

Now a days you can pick up a PS1 for dirt cheap, although I dont know why you would when a PS2 can play them just as good. At the time I thought they were a little too expensive. My brother got one for his birthday when we were in middle school and we loved it. Tekken 3 and Final Fantasy VIII (My favorite Final Fantasy of all time) were our favorites. I guess for me its the memories of a console that make it valuable. Sony outdid itself with the PS2 and the PSone fell by the wayside. Good console at the time though.
