Sony
Sony

As part of a worldwide restructuring at the beginning of 1997, SCEA (currently Sony

On December 8, 2005, video game developer Guerrilla Games , developers of the _Killzone_ series , was acquired by Sony
Sony

, and developers submit game concepts to Sony
Sony
early in the design process. Each SIE unit has its own evaluation process; SIEE, for example, approved _ Billy the Wizard _ for its consumers but SIEA did not.

PLAYSTATION

SCEI produces the PlayStation
PlayStation
line of video game hardware that consists of consoles and handhelds. Sony's first wide home console release, the PlayStation
PlayStation
(codenamed "PSX" during development,), was initially designed to be a CD-ROM drive add-on for Nintendo
Nintendo
's Super NES (a.k.a. "Super Famicom" in Japan) video game console, in response to add-ons for competing platforms such as the TurboGrafx-CD and the Sega CD
Sega CD
(sold as the PC Engine CD-ROM² System and Mega CD in Japan respectively). When the prospect of releasing the system as an add-on dissolved, Sony
Sony
redesigned the machine into a standalone unit.

The PlayStation
PlayStation
was released in Japan on December 3, 1994, and later in North America
North America
on September 9, 1995. By the end of the PS console's 12-year production cycle, Sony
Sony
registered sales of 102 million units.

PLAYSTATION 2

SCEI's second home console, the PlayStation
PlayStation
2 (PS2) was released in Japan on March 4, 2000, and later in North America
North America
and Europe
Europe
in October and November 2000, respectively. The PS2 is powered by a proprietary central processing unit , the Emotion Engine , and was the first video game console to have DVD
DVD
playback functionality included out of the box.

The PS2 consisted of a DVD
DVD
drive and retailed in the U.S. for US$299. SCEI received heavy criticism after the launch of the PS2 due to the games released as part of the launch, difficulties that it presented for video game designers, and users who struggled to port Sega Dreamcast games to the system. However, despite these complaints, the PlayStation
PlayStation
2 received widespread support from third party developers throughout its lifespan on the market.

On December 28, 2012, Sony
Sony
confirmed that it would cease production of the PS2 through a gradual process that started in Japan—the continuing popularity of the console in markets like Brazil and India meant that PS2 products would still be shipped, while games for the console were released in March 2013. The PS2 stands as the best-selling home video game console in history , with a total of 155 million consoles sold.

Writing for the ExtremeTech website at the end of 2012, James Plafke described the PS2 as revolutionary and proclaimed that the console "turn the gaming industry on its head":

Aside from being the “first” next-gen console, as well as providing many, many people with their first DVD
DVD
player, the PlayStation
PlayStation
2 launched in something of a Golden Age of the non-PC gaming industry. Gaming tech was becoming extremely sophisticated ... Sony
Sony
seemingly knew the exact route toward popularity, turning the console with the least powerful hardware of that generation into a juggernaut of success.

PLAYSTATION PORTABLE

The PlayStation
PlayStation
Portable (PSP) was SCEI's first foray into the small handheld console market. Its development was first announced during SCE's E3 conference in 2003, and it was officially unveiled during their E3 conference on May 11, 2004. The system was released in Japan on December 12, 2004, in North America
North America
on March 24, 2005, and in Europe
Europe
and Australia on September 1, 2005. The console has since seen two major redesigns, with new features including a smaller size, more internal memory, a better quality LCD screen and a lighter weight.

PLAYSTATION 3

The launch date for the PS3 was announced by Hirai at the pre-Electronic Entertainment Expo conference held at Sony
Sony
Pictures Studios in Los Angeles, U.S., on May 8, 2006.The PS3 was released in Japan on November 11, 2006, and the U.S. date was November 17, 2006. Technology journalists observed that Sony
Sony
had followed what Microsoft did with the Xbox 360, and produced the PS3 in two versions: one with a 20GB hard drive and the other with a 60GB hard drive.

The PS3 utilizes a unique processing architecture, the Cell microprocessor , a proprietary technology developed by Sony
Sony
in conjunction with Toshiba
Toshiba
and IBM
IBM
. The graphics processing unit, the RSX \'Reality Synthesizer\' , was co-developed by Nvidia and Sony. Several variations of the PS3 have been released, each with slight hardware and software differences, and each denoted by the varying size of the included hard disk drive.

PLAYSTATION VITA

The PS Vita is the successor to the PlayStation
PlayStation
Portable. It was released in Japan and other parts of Asia
Asia
on December 17, 2011, and then in Europe, Australia and North America
North America
on February 22, 2012.

Internally, the Vita features a 4-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor and a 4-core SGX543MP4+ graphics processing unit, as well as LiveArea software as its main user interface, which succeeds the XrossMediaBar .

PLAYSTATION 4

The PS4 was announced as the successor to the PS3 and was launched in North America
North America
on November 15, 2013, in Europe
Europe
on November 29, 2013 and in Japan on February 23, 2014.

Described by Sony
Sony
as a "next generation" console, the PS4 included features such as enhanced social capabilities, second-screen options involving devices like the handheld PlayStation
PlayStation
Vita , a membership service and compatibility with the Twitch live streaming platform.

Following a January 2014 announcement by the Chinese government that the country's 14-year game console ban would be lifted, the PS4 was scheduled to be the first Sony
Sony
video game console to be officially and legally released in China since the PlayStation
PlayStation
2—the ban was enacted in 2000 to protect the mental health of young people. Around 70 game developers, including Ubisoft and Koei, will service Chinese PlayStation
PlayStation
users.

The Chinese release dates and price details were announced in early December, with January 11, 2015, confirmed by SCEI. The makers announced that both the PS4 and Vita consoles will be released in China, and the former's package will also consist of a 500GB hard drive and controller.

The 20th anniversary of the original PS console was celebrated on December 6, 2014, with the release of a limited-edition, anniversary-edition PS4 with an aesthetic design that recalled the original 1994 PlayStation.
