Origins and History

The North American operations, Sony Computer Entertainment of America (SCEA), were established in May 1994 as a division of Sony Electronic Publishing. They were located in Foster City, California, and headed by Steve Race. In the months prior to the release of PlayStation in Western markets, the operations were restructured: All video game marketing from Sony Imagesoft was folded into SCEA in July 1995, with most affected employees transferred from Santa Monica to Foster City.

SCE originally designed the first PlayStation as a CD-ROM drive in Add-on for the Super Nintendo (in response to Sega's Mega-CD) while in early partnership with Nintendo. However, when the prospect of the add-on dissolved after they announced switch their parternship with Philips to develop the Philips CD-i, SCE redesigned it into an actual console.

The PlayStation became a best-seller thanks to it's first party developed games such as Twisted Metal, Gran Turismo, Crash Bandicoot, and Spyro. Unfortunately, only the former two still remain as 1st party while the later became 3rd party by the end of Naughty Dog's and Insomniac's 3 game deal.
