The world has united in memory of nearly two decades of PlayStation ahead of the reveal of the PS4 in New York tonight.
The hashtag #PlayStationMemory is currently the No.1 trending topic on Twitter worldwide – one hell of an achievement for Sony’s marketeers. And a great start to what is sure to be near-blanket coverage of the new console across the press from midnight tonight.
Here’s a selection of Tweets on the subject that caught our eye:
