Sony's 32 bit PlayStation (or "PSX") console was released in the UK in 1995 and is the current market leader with well over 6 million unit sales and world-wide sales of over 100 million. The machine has now been superseded by PlayStation 2.
The original Sony Playstation was Sony's first home entertainment system. It was a large competitor of the Nintendo 64. Unlike most Nintendo Games, Playstation games often featured violence. Playstation games were on CDs instead of cartridges.
PlayStation is one of several large catamarans created for the 2000 around the world race known as The Race. Like its competitors, PlayStation was created for sheer speed, pushing the state of the art in materials, construction, and operation.
