PlayStation Evolution series highlights the changing definition of games

Today's entry in Sony's PlayStation Evolution retrospective series focuses on PlayStation-exclusive games through the years, and the ways in which those titles expanded the video game medium's scope and audience.

We're expecting to see the next step in that philosophy with tomorrow's rumored unveiling of Sony's next console.
