Midnight Blue model (SCPH-7000W)[edit]

I now have a Midnight Blue PS1, model SCPH-7000W. Its bottom label says NTSC J. However, it can boot legitimate games from all regions, but not CD-Rs; in a sense, it's like a Yaroze. I have no way to determine whether it can run the Yaroze boot disk, though.

It has system ROM 4.1, like the rest of the 7x0x series. Despite being the Japanese midnight blue model, it actually has the American version of the ROM.

Screenshots you can find on Google of the American and European versions of the midnight blue PS1 give their model numbers as SCPH-7001 and SCPH-7002 respectively, with no W. I have no idea whether these models can boot imported games. -- Myria (talk) 05:34, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

When was Playstation 1 stop being sold?[edit]

Can someone please tell me when was Playstation 1 stop being sold in Europe?--Tonibarber (talk) 12:24, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

The article itself states that it was discontinued on 23rd March 2006, if it's any help. Chaheel Riens (talk) 13:23, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Titles contradiction[edit]

In the Titles section, it states that "The very last game for the system released in the United States was FIFA Football 2005." However, at the bottom of the paragraph, It also states "The last game for the system was Hugo Black Diamond Fever released in August 2005." Is this an example of self-contradiction? If so, which one is right? AJO191 (talk) 15:37, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

I think what is meant here is FIFA 2005 was the last game in the US, while Hugo Black Diamond Fever was the last game anywhere in the world (and presumably wasn't released in the US). Alphathon /'æɫ.fə.θɒn(talk) 16:20, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Console Pictures[edit]

The two console models at the top of the page show, unless I'm mistaken, DualShock controllers. When the PlayStation was first released, it was released with PlayStation Controllers. Would it be better or more accurate to show the consoles with the DualShock or PlayStation controllers? The latter was the original model but the former was (and still is) more popular. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.249.140.78 (talk) 05:53, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
