Product Specifications

The Sony Playstation is the most popular gaming console in America, with a library of thousands of Playstation games currently available. Featuring advanced 3D texture-mapped graphics, full transparency and shading effects, and high-quality CD sound, it was considered impossible to emulate decently until the release of an astonishing new emulator. The precise manufacturing methods of the PlayStation have gone through several refinements since the console's arrival. The current production model features a highly integrated chipset. Despite having gone through numerous hardware revisions, the technological core of PlayStations architecture remains unchanged.
