The first PlayStation console was available in Europe on 29 September 1995. The European PlayStation Store team seem to have let this fact pass them by, but at least ComputerAndVideoGames.com has not forgotten:

FirstPlay Episode 26
Posted on 27 September by Nathan Ditum – Associate Editor, FirstPlay
"...We’ve got some more Top Gun gear for PlayStation Home – Goose helmet, kids – and another chance to grab our exclusive Joe Danger PSN avatar. We also have two huge reviews, with in-depth HD verdicts on EA’s footballing juggernaut FIFA 11 and Codemasters’ beautiful F1 2010, as well as a look at pec-tastic blockbuster Prince Of Persia on Blu-ray.
And there’s loads more, including a countdown of the top ten PlayStation games of all time, as voted by Official PlayStation Magazine readers to celebrate the magazine’s 50th issue, and a personal take on why MLB The Show is the best sports game on PS3 from the mag’s editor Ben Wilson (apparently not because he’s rubbish at FIFA. I know, I was surprised too).
We’ve also got a review of PixelJunk Racers: 2nd Lap, a look at the latest movies on the PlayStation Store, and screenshot galleries including inFamous 2, Heroes On The Move and Bulletstorm.
That makes over half an hour’s worth of staring at HD games for just 99p, or even less if you buy an £8.99 subscription for 12 weeks."
