Sony's PlayStation '94 Shop

Sony’s PlayStation ’94 Shop was the coolest thing in 2014

If you love gaming, then you’ve got to love Sony.

After all, these are the kind folk who gave us the original PlayStation, and along with that console legendary games including Metal Gear Solid, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Gran Turismo 2, plus much more.

Two decades on since Sony launched that wonderful console, Sony saw fit fit to celebrate in 2014.

But rather than throw a party, the company took to a London high-street store to recreate 90s’ gaming nostalgia.

Sony’s PlayStation ’94 Shop was a pop-up store open in Central London on the 10th December 2014. Visitors to the store could take in all kinds of retro PS1 posters, but most interestingly and excitingly of all, Sony put 94 limited-edition grey PlayStation 4 consoles aside and invited Londoners to find and camp outside the PlayStation ’94 Store.

They even sold these limited-edition PS4 consoles for £19.94. HOW COOL IS THAT? Plus, all proceeds went to gaming charity GamesAid. Double cool.

Sony teased this pop-up store on Twitter and shortly afterwards people were lining up in a bid to get their hands on a limited-edition console and be a part of something unique. I don’t live in London, and it would have been nice to be able to get my hands on one of these bad boys, but we congratulate those who did. That’s a mighty fine console you’ve got there.
