RealMedia: The PlayStation arrives


A fixture in every single bloke's living room, PlayStation took video games from being the preserve of children and turned them into post-Yuppie fashion accessories.

Slick marketing, arcade-quality graphics and the arrival of buxom Lara Croft, made PlayStation one of the biggest brands of the '90s.

The PlayStation was so successful it still survives today - as PS1 - despite the arrival of its successor PS2, in 2000.
