How quickly the time goes by, especially when you're playing video games.

Over at the Playstation Blog

they've begun celebrating the landmark anniversary of the first Playstation launch in America, which happened 20 years ago Sept. 9.

Those were exciting and pioneering times for all of us: new technology, the arcade experience in the home, and no guarantee that we would still be around come the turn of the century –- or sooner. Exciting times indeed.

But we did make it. And thanks to the dedication and passion of the greatest gaming community of all time, the PlayStation Nation, we are celebrating the twentieth birthday of the original PlayStation system, which officially launched in North America on September 9th, 1995. At its launch, PlayStation was a stylish, powerful, developer-friendly game console that popularized polygonal 3D graphics and CD playback of games and music.



Do you have any memories of that launch? Any favorite PS1 games?

J.K. Rowling, or as she's known here: c0caine Twitter Lady, hopped back on her social drug of choice to again respond to random fan questions about upcoming plot details of the Fantastic Beasts movie.

In her usual flurry of stream of conciousness, she all but confirmed that the movie would include an as yet unnamed school of wizardry that exists in America.



Probably drunk off her own informational power, she also revealed that the American wizarding school might have something to do with Native American culture.



The movie, which will star Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne as main character Newt Scamander, is set for a release sometime next year.
