Take A Look Back At The PlayStation Start Up Sounds

Our console’s start-up sound effects can easily become etched in our memories, you’ll probably hear the starting roar of your favorite console a few hundred times – if not more. To celebrate the recent European launch of the PlayStation 4 Sony has released a short montage featuring the starting sounds for all four of their home consoles from the last 18 years.

Hearing the PlayStation one boot up effect again reminds me of the closing days of ’98 where I worked my way through Resident Evil 2 slaying zombies for hours. I didn’t even own the game I’d just keep renting it over and over; my parents must have hated me. As for the PS2, this video reminds me of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City as that game came out right when I was old enough to buy mature titles. I didn’t own a PS3 until Metal Gear Solid IV: Guns of The Patriots came out in 2008.

Check out the video after the jump and share your memories in the comments section.
