PlayStation Education: Pop Quiz!

PlayStation as a platform has existed for over 15 years now, and is older than my niece by 14 months. So it’s not too hard to imagine that over the course of the brand’s existence that a PlayStation of some sort was the first platform for many a gamer. Some of you reading may be young enough to say that the PS2 was your first game machine.

But if you’re reading this, that leads me to believe that you’re just as passionate about PlayStation as we are, regardless of when you first picked up a DualShock. Now’s your chance to put your knowledge to the test. These questions cover the entire PlayStation timeline, and while some are softballs, a few are pretty obscure.

Have fun, though I dare say I don’t expect anyone to 100% this puppy.

  1. Lol — I actually struggled with this quiz. Joe did a great job putting it together.

  2. I guessed on EVERY question.

  3. some very easy and some very hard questions. ended up guessing mostly as game specific questions are hard if u havnt played them before.

  4. That was tough.. forgot a lot of those.

  5. what a refreshing quiz!
    felt good answering…and guessing some of the questions XD

    Quite a few I had to purely guess on or wasn’t 100% sure. I have no idea how many I got right after looking at the answer sheet though since the page I answered on doesn’t list it as a) b) c) d) anymore. Oh well :p Fun quiz just to see how much I know about Playstation!

  7. I’m enjoying reading all of these poll results so far, lol.

    Haha pretty cool quiz XD I got a majority of them right, ones I messed up on was the trophies one and “Who was the first player to ever grace the cover of Madden ?”

    Off Topic- Joe Garcia are you Wonsauto? Just wondering lol

  9. @Moocows – The WonsAuto you once knew died of a broken heart upon learning that Kevin Butler was just a hired actor, and not really the VP of First Person Shooter Relations. Through the magic of animatronics, he’s been revived as the Joe Garcia you see today.

    Phew, glad that’s cleared up!

  10. this quiz has a pretty nice balance between easy and hard questions!

    i thought the madden question was a trick one lol….if i recall, in either 2001-2003 i think….there was a player featured in the BACKGROUND as madden took up lik 90% of the spotlight……..but i forgot the name of that player so i guessed lol….turns out he wasnt one of the options :\

    and uhh i missed which FF didnt release on a PS system….i picked IV 🙁

    16/18, not too bad

  11. yay 18/18 hundred percent 😀

  12. Yeah, the answers “sheet” didn’t help me because when i check back… It doesn’t say if I chose a, b, c or d :-(. I only see the options i chose and that’s it… Anyway, the questions i didn’t know about i just googled them XD. J/K I’m not that nerdy Hahaha

  14. That was tough. Doubt I even got half right.

  15. Which of these songs wasn’t in the PS2 version of Guitar Hero II?

    And most people voted Them Bones by Alice in Chains. wtf?

    The Trooper by Iron Maiden, who got the least votes, is a song exclusively for the Xbox.

  16. FAB! Quiz! XD
