The Sony Playstation was innovative for its time and extremely well designed. Compact and gray, the console stood in sharp contrast to the harsh black style adopted by most console manufacturers. The Playstation controllers featured elongated handlebar-like grips and four shoulder buttons - both quite ground-breaking for the time. The front of the console featured two memory card slots above the controller ports. The Neo Geo console had previously used memory cards, but the concept was never fully realized until the Playstation. The Playstation memory cards were small, attractive, and easy to manage using the memory manager built into the system. Gamers liked the fact that they would never run out of space and could transport their saved games to a friend's house. Internally, the Playstation was specially optimized to handle 3D graphics. Sony predicted that the future of gaming lied in polygon graphics instead of flat sprites, and they were right.
