Yesterday, PlayStation turned 20. The original console was released back in 1995 but has since gone on to release three new models. That first model, now dubbed PS1, definitely takes a lot of gamers down memory lane. Even non gaming millenials have a happy sense of nostalgia about what was for many their first video game console. Today, the PS4 still competes with newer gaming consoles. In fact, it's dominating the field with over 25 million sold.
