15 years ago today in Japan, the original PlayStation went on sale. It wasn't until a year later that it hit US and European shelves, with Ridge Racer satisfying gamers years before GTA was ever a twinkle in Rockstar's eye.

Helping Sega pioneer disc-based gaming, the original PlayStation went on to sell over 100 million consoles until it was discontinued in 2006. Check out the official birthday site for PlayStation here for a trip down memory lane—when PlayStations were much smaller and lighter than they are today, and didn't need to install patches every 20 minutes.

What, she's only 15. But I've been playing with her since...oh crap. I swear I didn't know, and it's not like Playstation didn't know what she was doing, releasing all those games with all that eye candy. It's all her fault. And I know you've played with her too, so don't even look at me like that.

But hey, only three more year and then I can get to the next level without feeling guilty.
