I’m keeping up my once-a-week Magazine scan, but I decided to mix it up a bit this time. I know there are a lot of loyal Sega Saturn fans reading this, but I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the first issue of Playstation Magazine from September of 1997.
In this issue, you will find a number of good introductory topics. First off all, “Top 25 Playstation Games of All Time” (pg 26) rounds up the best titles up until the date of the publication. I found it interesting to see how different the prime Playstation library was before Final Fantasy VII made it big.
“Know Your Playstation” (pg 58) served as a beginner’s guide to the hardware options availible to new Playstation owners. The writeup may still be handy if you are looking into buying a used machine.
There are also a number of other interesting pieces in the issue such as Very early talks about the PS2 (pg 12), a Strategy Guide for the first disc of Final Fantasy VII (pg 66), and a Preview of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (pg 37).
I’d love to hear of any other little tidbits from the issue that you found interesting.
