Short Clip Celebrates PlayStation's 20th Birthday

The 20th anniversary of the first PlayStation console's Japanese release is fast approaching, and Sony's here to commemorate it with — what else — a montage.

The clip is part of a broader 20th anniversary promotion-slash-celebration for the brand, which is chronicled on a web page found on the official Japanese PlayStation site. Items and events "claimed" by the promotion so far include the likes of the pink PS Vita and the Metal Slime PS4, and the upcoming PlayStation Awards 2014, which will take place on the anniversary date, December 3. Judging by the number of blank tiles on the page, there's a lot more coming.

The PlayStation was launched in Australia in 1995, on November 15.

    Sorry if I sound really stupid, but could someone identify the racing game for me that appears at 0:15? I remember playing it on the demo disc when I was very young, but the name sort of slipped through the cracks for me.

    Extra brownie points for the person who guesses it :)

      Isn't that Ridge Racer?

        Yep, that's it. Or possibly Ridge Racer Revolution which was practically the same. Good times

          I definitely remember hitting just about every wall in this demo as a child- younger ninja didn't know how to steer good.

    Oops, a bit of a reply fail there.
    Anyway, yeah I wasn't so good at the start but we only had Ridge Racer Revolution and Toshinden at the time. I got pretty good at both. I tried those games in recent years and I'm back to being craptacular.

    Man, I need to learn to Kotaku reply a bit better! Sorry was meant as a reply to you @ninja_102
