Seven years after the troubled PS3 launch, PlayStation was facing the most important console launch in the most critical year of the brand’s history. We needed to fly in the face of the industry trend toward entertainment over gaming by launching a single-minded idea that would speak to the brand’s legacy - and directly to gamers’ hearts.

PlayStation is now back on top, proving to gamers everywhere, greatness truly does await.
