Hier een stukkie uit de intro:
Earlier today, 3rd March 1999, Sony officially unveiled the Playstation 2, a powerhouse machine capable of putting almost any other gaming rig in existence to shame. Graphically, the PS2 is simply mind-boggling. It is capable of churning out 3D graphics equivalent to those of Disney’s Toy Story or even better. The audience at the unveiling were treated to real-time displays of characters from Namco's Ridge Racer Type 4, Squaresoft's Final Fantasy VIII and more. What looked like Full Motion Video sequences were, in fact, real time renderings. The PS2 has been set to release in Japan sometime between December 1999 and March 2000. People are already feeling Deja Vu. In December 1994, Sega released the much anticipated Saturn console, only to have it pummelled to the ground by the Playstation one year later. With Sega’s Dreamcast barely released, Sony looks set to annihilate the competition with better technology and better software.
