This day 25 years ago — Dec. 3, 1994 — Sony’s original PlayStation hit stores in Japan and kicked off a seismic shift that earned it a Guinness World Record on Tuesday. 

“We’re thrilled to be certified as the best-selling home video game console brand ever, with over 450 million units sold across the original PlayStation, PS2, PS3 and PS4 as of Nov. 7, according to @GWR,” PlayStation tweeted, with a photo of Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan and former CEO Ken Kutaragi.

Looking at the individual consoles‘ sales figures up to September, PS2 and PS4 are the top-selling home consoles of all time, with sales of 155 million and 102.8 million consoles respectively. The original PlayStation is just behind with 102.5 million, while the PS3 sold a comparatively disappointing 87.4 million units.

“Starting from a humble beginning as an upstart within Sony, Ken Kutaragi and team delivered on a vision to elevate video games as a form of entertainment that everyone could enjoy, and to make a platform for game developers to express their creativity,” Ryan wrote in a blog post marking the anniversary. 

“The original PlayStation sold 100,000 units in Japan on its first day and went on to become the first-ever home console to surpass 100 million units sold globally.”

The PS5 is on the horizon for 2020, but there’s still life in the PS4 —  upcoming exclusives The Last of Us Part 2 and Ghost of Tsushima will keep consoles warm until the next gen arrives.
