PlayStation Turns 10

Today is September 9, 2005.

It was ten years ago this very day that Sony's original PlayStation console went on sale in North America.

The system sold like wildfire, selling more than 100,000 units in just two days. At the time, that was unprecidented. So was the console's price--a hefty $299.

Launch games included Ridge Racer, Battle Arena Toshinden, Twisted Metal, Warhawk, Tekken, ESPN Extreme Games, NBA Jam, Raiden Project, PGA Tour '96, and Mortal Kombat 3. Tekken went on to sell 1 million units worldwide within a month of release.

To date, more than 100 million original PlayStation consoles have been sold.
