The PlayStation (commonly known as the PS1 or its codename PSX) is a home video game console developed and marketed by Sony Computer Entertainment. It was first released on 3 December 1994 in Japan, 9 September 1995 in North America, 29 September 1995 in Europe, and 15 November 1995 in Australia, and was the first of the PlayStation line-up of video game consoles. As a fifth generation console, the PlayStation primarily competed with the Nintendo 64 and the Sega Saturn.

Development of the console began after a failed venture with Nintendo to create a CD-ROM for their Super Famicom in the early 1990s. Game production for the console was designed to be streamlined and inclusive, enticing the support of many third-party developers. In July 2000, a redesigned, slim version called the PS One was released, replacing the original grey console and named appropriately to avoid confusion with its successor, the PlayStation 2.

The Playstation CPU contains a 32bit R3000 MIPS based core at 33.86MHz as the primary microprocessor. Also contained in the CPU is the Geometry Transformation Engine (GTE) co-processor, integrating additional vector math instructions used for 3D graphics, lighting, geometry, polygon and coordinate transformations. Unusual for the time, the PlayStation lacks a dedicated 2D graphics processor; 2D elements are instead calculated as polygons by the Geometry Transfer Engine so that they can be processed and displayed on screen by the GPU. The PlayStation utilizes a proprietary video compression unit called MDEC, which also resides in the CPU, allowing for the presentation of full motion video at a higher quality than other consoles of its generation. The system features 2 MB of main RAM, with an additional 1 MB being allocated to video memory.
