As a new episode for From Bedrooms to Billions documentary series, The PlayStation Revolution goes over the ups and downs of Sony’s gaming division since the year it was founded in 1994.

The PlayStation Revolution was announced four years ago as a Kickstarter project by Anthony and Nicola Caulfield, the directors behind the upcoming documentary who previously premiered From Bedrooms to Billions and its sequel, From Bedrooms to Billions: The Amiga Years. Both projects collected their budget through the Kickstarter campaign.

According to Anthony Caulfield, the co-director behind The PlayStation Revolution, the documentary is supposed to show how Sony managed to start a revolution in the history of video games, bringing an enjoyable entertainment to everyone’s home in the world. He said:

We used Kickstarter to fund our previous films and we turned to it for this film in the hope of producing a standout and memorable film that not only celebrates the Sony PlayStation console and what followed, but delves deeply into why and how it was created and why it was a revolution for the video games industry.

The directing team has interviewed Mark Cerny, Hideo Kojima, Shinji Mikami, Jim Ryan, Phil Harrison, Kazunori Yamauchi, David Jaffe, and some other veteran developers who have been part of the company during its lifecycle up until now.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

PlayStation is truly a legendary brand in the video game industry that most of us started playing games with its products and consoles. While celebrating its 25th anniversary, PlayStation will be launching its fifth mainline console later this year. With PS4, Sony experienced a great generation that pleased all its fans and users over the last six years, thanks to the dozens of high-quality titles that were delivered by the company’s first-party developers.

PlayStation 5 will be available in Holiday 2020 with Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Deathloop, and Godfall as some of the notable launch titles that will be released along with the new console. More new details about PS5, its price tag, and its upcoming games are about to reveal in the coming months.
