The Original Playstation – Looks like Shit, Sounds Like Gold by jimmycanuck

The wife and I were wandering through Wal-Mart to see if they’d set up any of their PS3 or Wii displays, and even though we didn’t find anything like that (good luck putting that together at the last minute, midnight crew) we were quite surprised to see a number of PSOne’s sitting on top of the glass display cases.  The PSOne’s having not been there in recent years, we were absolutely dumbfounded.  Why would they be bringing PSOne’s out of storage to put on display – especially when they’ll be taking up space during a two-launch weekend?!?!

The good folks over at bits bytes pixels & sprites have shed a little light on the subject.  They’ve linked to an article over at MSNBC that claims the Playstation 1 is considered by most audiophiles the best high fidelity CD Player ever created.  It may not explain why they were sitting out on display at Wal-Mart this week, but it might just give you a good reason to go pick one up.
