Buy From Bedrooms to Billions: The PlayStation Revolution

From Bedrooms to Billions: The PlayStation Revolution, is a 90-minute long feature documentary that delves into the influence of the Sony PlayStation and how it took the world of video game development and the very way we experienced games to a WHOLE new level - in turn, revolutionizing the video games industry forever.
 

The T-Rex demo was what many game developers first saw of the PlayStation back in 1994 with its incredible 3D hardware that would compete with the arcades. The T-rex, gorgeously created for this campaign by legendary ZZAP! 64 and CRASH magazine artist Oliver Frey, gave developers the first real glimpse into what would be possible in the next generation of video gaming.
 


 

Co-creator of this documentary, Anthony Caulfield, said:
"During the production of our two previous films so many developers, publishers, musicians and journalists we interviewed said that the release of the PlayStation was a 'game changer' for the games industry on many different levels. Therefore it is our intention to film a whole new set of interviews to add to our already extensive list to create a standalone, immersive and highly nostalgic film that really explores why the release of the PlayStation and the era that soon followed was a key period in the evolution of video games. Those that know our work will understand we are both passionate and intent on documenting the games industry as thoroughly, but also to be as entertaining as we can."
 

The PlayStation helped take video games into the mainstream. Suddenly for just a few hundred dollars/pounds you could bypass the need for an expensive PC in the home and developers could produce workstation quality visuals (albeit scaled back from a fully loaded PC of the time) and the gaming public could run the game on a very cheap piece of hardware. There are so many factors to cover, the move to 3D, again not exclusive to the PlayStation but certainly, the availability to the general public of these types of games was a big factor. 
 

The film also covers the evolution of arcade games and where they were by the early 1990's and the influence they played in the eventual success of the PlayStation. It thoroughly covers the creation of the system by telling the story of where the games industry was in the early 1990's and the domination of Nintendo and Sega and the task at hand to break that. We are also looking forward to bringing Japan into this motion picture and hearing from some of the most influential Japanese games developers and hardware designers, as well as a whole host of other developers, publishers, and musicians from across the world.
