Grey is the new colour of Sony PlayStation®4 after 20 years

PlayStation® is 20 — and to celebrate, a limited edition version of the current console has been given a retro makeover, draped in the grey livery of the original Sony console.

The original Sony PlayStation® games console was released in Japan on 3 December 1994.A limited edition PS4™, pictured left, side-by-side with the original Sony PlayStation® console released in 1994.

The “Play Station®” name was originally tied to a collaboration between Sony and Nintendo in the 1980s while the two companies developed a new CD-ROM format, but Sony backed out. Sony’s Ken Kutaragi, later dubbed the “father of the PlayStation®” was nearly fired for his involvement with Nintendo, but managed to persuade Sony that gaming was not a fad. After its Japanese launch, the console landed in the US and Europe in September 1995.

It was succeeded by the PlayStation® 2 in 2000, the PS3™ in 2006 and the PS4™ last year.
