console battle QUARTER FINAL R3 PLAYSTATION 1 VS PLAYSTATION 2

Battle of the Playstation juggernauts.

Who wins

PS1 beat the 3DO and the SATURN to get this far,
The PS2 beat the N64 and DREAMCAST.

PLAYSTATION 1 VS PLAYSTATION 2

Ridge racer, Tekken, Resident Evil, and Metal gear were amazing at the time.

The PS2 was also a DVD player, so there is that I suppose . . . . .

Loved both, but the PS1's graphics (3D) have aged VERY badly and I still play PS2 games more than PS1 games. PS2 it has to be.

I thought it was a tough choice until some smarty pants reminded me that PS2 can play PS1 then it becomes a no brainer. PS2 for the win.

See to me thats too clinical a way to look at it.

Playing Resident Evil 2, Gran Turismo, meta gear etc on a Ps2 just can't compete with playing them at the time on the PS1.

Thee never would have been a PS2 without the PlayStation.

PS2. Yes, obviously without the PS1, the PS2 would not have existed (!), but the PS2 was a near perfect evolution and the fact it had a DVD player (for many homes, the first DVD player), and full backwards PS1 compatibility, made this such a superb console.

Never thought my first post in a long time would be for a console battle, but its and interesting topic presented in a fun way.....

As has been pointed out already, this battle is like an Excel circular reference. The PS2 would not exist without the PS1, but the PS1 exists inside the PS2 :? .

I would go with PS1 as it personally had a far greater impact, so much so it actually got me back into console gaming. PS2 was a fine console but I mainly got it as a cheap DVD player.

Glad you joined in.

I know Console a vs console B topics are played out so i thought this might be something a bit more fun, especially as people can follow the progress of their favorite. I was just a little worried people would be annoyed by so many threads running at the same time.

PlayStation 1 for me.

I just never got the excitement of playing new types of game on the PlayStation 2.

I mean jumping from the megadrive to PS1 was huge. Especially playing when playing the likes of ridge racer, resident evil, doom, metal gear etc... for the first time.

Maybe it's because I was older and it took more to make me go wow.

PS2. Firstly, it can already play PS1 games without any problems and then it can be used as a DVD player. Plus, there's things like Colin McRae, Strikers 1945, Yakuza and Gradius V.

PS2. It up there with Vectrex as a 'like to own at some point' console. While I have a PS1 and like to keep all of the Sony consoles together, I'd happily swap it for a PS2.
