PlayStation: “PlayStation Classic” - 30s
Keen to replicate the success of Nintendo's NES and SNES Classic consoles, Sony introduce their own miniature nostalgia hit - the, erm, not-so imaginatively named PlayStation Classic. Fortunately, this 30" launch ad from BBH New York and animation studio Buck has enough 32-bit pizzazz to compensate.
Scored by the Chemical Brothers' ‘Block Rockin' Beats', the ad deftly mashes together characters and vehicles from the console's twenty-game line-up, including Tekken 3's King, Ridge Racer's multi-hued roadsters, and even the PlayStation's iconic demo disc T-Rex.
Even if some of the platform's defining titles are absent, this graphical throwback suggests there is enough to satisfy those who cherish a time when online multiplayer and non-blocky hands were the stuff of a mad man's dreams.
