An Appreciation of the Playstation Boot Screen

   0
When the Playstation 2 was announced as backwards compatible, I did what most sane people did: I sold my Playstation 1. Yeah, it was fun while it lasted, but the future was coming, and I could bring all my old games with me. One less game system to clutter the house with.

The Playstation 2 served me well for my gaming needs for a while, but when it came to PSX games, something didn't sit right with me, and I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Then it hit me, I was missing half the boot screen every time I fired up a PS1 game!


The greatest boot-up you will ever see

Nothing puts you into the right mind set to play a Playstation game more than this. Nothing STILL says "Playstation" to me more than seeing this before starting up Metal Gear Solid, Tomb Raider, Twisted Metal, or Final Fantasy VII. In some ways, these two screens and their distinct, rumbling electronic tones are the sign of a new era, a new era that boomed from the heavens, "IT IS 32-BITS, AND IT IS GOOD."

I love you, Playstation boot screen.

P.S. I later bought a new Playstation console JUST so I could hear and see this.
