PlayStation is a gaming brand that consists of four home video game consoles, as well as a media center, an online service, a line of controllers, two handhelds and a phone, as well as multiple magazines. It was created by Sony Interactive Entertainment on December 3, 1994, with the launch of the original PlayStation in Japan, and has been owned by that company ever since.

Net Yaroze

The Net Yaroze is a development kit for the PlayStation video game console. It was a promotion by Sony Computer Entertainment to computer programming hobbyists which launched in June 1996 in Japan and in 1997 in other countries. It was originally called "Net Yarouze", but was changed to "Net Yaroze" in late 1996. Yarōze means "Let's do it together".

Since the controller is corded, the controller also supports the force feedback function, commonly called vibration. It has the same button layout as the PlayStation's controller, the DualShock 2, but it has a different design. The controller comes with built-in sensitivity calibration, customizable positioning, an enhanced vibration feature, and analog joystick swapping.
