I had a Nintendo and a Gameboy when I was a kid. I got a Super Nintendo for Christmas of 1995. Mid 1997 I tried Playstation for the first time. Not long after I tried Playstation I sold my Super NES and all gamnes for $200 to by my first Playstation. I have been devoted to Playstation ever since. I wouldn't call myself a fanboy but overall I really like how Sony has handled the Playstation brand compared to the competition (there are a few exceptions, PS Monitor and PS Vita for example) I have had the original Playstation, Fat PS2, Slim PS2, 2 Fat PS3's, Slim PS3, PSP, PS4, Playstation 3D Monitor, Playstation Stereo Headset, PS Vita, Gold Stereo Headset.
