PlayStation

In 1994 Sony launched the PlayStation to compete with the Nintendo 64 and other consoles. This successful console was succeeded by the PlayStation 2 in 2000. The PlayStation 2 has become the most successful video game console of all time, selling over 140 million units. The PlayStation brand was extended to the portable games market in 2005 by the PlayStation Portable (PSP) and in 2009, the PSP go. Sony developed the Universal Media Disc (UMD) optical disc medium for use on the PlayStation Portable. Although Sony tried to push the UMD format for movies, major-studio support for the format was cut back in spring 2006, though as of 2009 some major-studio titles continue to be released on UMD.

Sony released the PlayStation 3, a high-definition console, in 2006. It later introduced the PlayStation Move, an accessory that allows players to control video games using motion controllers. Sony announced that on 1 April 2010[18] it was electronically removing Linux [19] functionality from the first generation PS3.[20] A class action has been taken out in California challenging the legality of "the disablement of valuable functionality originally advertised".[21]

Sony admitted in late 2005 to hiring graffiti artists to spray paint advertisements for their PlayStation Portable game system in seven major cities including New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco,[22] and Sydney Australia. The mayor of Philadelphia filed a cease and desist order. According to Sony, they paid businesses and building owners for the right to graffiti their walls.[23] As of early January 2006, Sony had no plans to keep or withdraw them.
