Illustrators Commemorate PlayStation’s 20th Anniversary In Weekly Famitsu

Today, Japan’s Weekly Famitsu paid a congratulatory tribute to the Sony PlayStation brand, which will be achieving it’s 20th anniversary on December 3. Designers and illustrators from several acclaimed Japanese companies donated their talents by sketching and autographing images of characters from their own respective video games, expanding across two full spreads in the magazine.

Weekly Famitsu themselves gave a detailed history of PlayStation, its successors, and some fairly nostalgic peripherals such as the Pocket PlayStation and Namco’s NeGcon controller. Check it all out below.
