    With E3 just around the corner, delivering such goods like Project Natal and PlayStation Move, its interesting to see how things have changed.

    With this years E3 turning out to be one of the best line-ups ever,and a massive thread covering all the games to match, it sure looks amazing. But how did everything look around...oh I dont know,15 years ago?

    Well I happened to come across this gem, its a recording from Sonys First E3 in 1995, and it may only be brief, but to think that day changed gaming forever is quite incredible, history in the making.

    Here's the link to the clips, so get your leather jacket on, grab your Game boy and get ready to travel back in time to 1995

    On second thought, the majority of the users of this forum are far too young to know what the heck I posted in that last post. Sigh...

    I'll tell you though, "Do not underestimate the power of the PlayStation!"

    Right?! The big thing was the "Enos Lives!" was actually code for "Sony is Evil." Which, of course, Sony ran with. Good times!
