The PlayStation Museum collects, studies, and interprets the hardware, video games, design, and all related materials regarding the history of the original Sony PlayStation game console.
On-line web resource
Beyond collecting and preserving such materials, the PlayStation Museum is a highly interactive, media-based educational web resource devoted to Sony PlayStation history.
Preserving the history of the games industry
Sony forever changed the video gaming landscape with the launch of the PlayStation. Without the support of game developers, the Sony PlayStation brand would not have been the success that it is. The PlayStation Museum strives to recognize the efforts, creative designs and history of Sony PlayStation game developers.
With Developer Insights, the PlayStation Museum gives developers a platform to document and share in depth their challenges and accomplishments developing PlayStation video games. These exclusive insights are often publicized through major video game news outlets including GameSetWatch (a Gamasutra blog), Joystiq, and Kotaku. Developers often share with the PlayStation Museum their experiences, artwork, design documents, and other media with the goal of preserving their work and receiving recognition for their hard work and creativity. At no time will any media or experiences be shared to the public without the developer's complete understanding, approval, and explicit consent.
Through social media channels the PlayStation Museum promotes current and past developer projects.
The PlayStation Museum has garnered support from developers and publishers worldwide with the same goal of preserving the history of PlayStation game development. Developers, former or current, include: 989 Studios, Acclaim, Accolade, Activision, Argonaut, Blue Sky, Capcom, CAPS, Electronic Arts, Gray Matter, GT Interactive, Infogrames, Namco, Naughty Dog, Neversoft, Player 1, Psygnosis, Realtime Associates, Runecraft, SCE Worldwide Studios, Sony Interactive Studios America, Squaresoft, Universal Studios Interactive, Viacom New Media, Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Visual Concepts, and more.
