Twenty years ago today, Sony released the original Playstation . The 3rd of December 1994 marked the official release date for the console which would ignite the popularity of high-powered home consoles and fantastic First-Party games.

The original Playstation provided endless hours of entertainment, focusing prominently on just gaming and none of the additional entertainment  features such as Netflix streaming, social networking and more which are required in modern day gaming consoles. The controller which has more or less retained the same design since launch until now, has become an iconic symbol in gaming, with the notable use of shapes to label the buttons opposed to the ‘yBAX’ layout.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Playstation, the yBaX-Start.com header has been redecorated to suit the occasion; the logo is now the shapes layout of the Dualshock controllers and the background is a snippet of an iconic scene in the Playstation 3/4 Blockbuster, The Last of Us.
