Officially known as PS, the PlayStation network in simple terms is an online gaming center where users buy, download and play games and other multimedia.
In Nigeria, the PS is considered to be a game of men. This could be because most men tilt towards the game more than women do.
Recently, I watched a video where a groom was given a PS 5 console as a wedding gift by his bride and his excitement knew no bounds. I began to wonder what the fuss is about these games, this made me to conduct a research about this fun-time product.
The first console was the PS 1 which was first released in 2000 (although first introduced in 1994) and more consoles have been released ever since. The latest of them is the PS 5 console. There are speculations that another model, which is PS 6 should be released by 2026.
