As it turns out, there has now been twenty years of PlayStation. So we decided to talk about those twenty years on the OSMcast! But as it turns out, there was a lot, a LOT to talk about just about the first PlayStation!

So listen on as we intend to talk about all of the PlayStation, then instead only talk about the first of PlayStation.

That said, we had a ton to say. We talk about the system itself, where it came from, and all the games we enjoyed on it throughout the years.

Turns out, there were a lot of games!


Let’s not mince words here. Because here comes a whole lot of them: Time Cues!
