Graphics The graphics of the PlayStation in its day amazed people. But now with the kind of detail that is put into games the graphics of the PlayStation just don't really compare. The detail is pixelly and the color range is not very big. Also character movement is somewhat stiff and cut scenes aren't very smooth. But of course back in the day people thought it was awesome.
Special Features There aren't very many special things you can do with the first PlayStation system, but one thing you can do is play CDs. You put the disk in like you would with a regular game and it takes you to a different screen. You can select what track to play or just play the whole CD, and you can choose to replay one song or the entire CD.

Graphics The graphics for the PS2 are better than the PS1 but not as good as the PS3. Sometimes you get a game with really good graphics and there is clear visibility and high detail, and also sometimes you get a game with medium-low detail and it's pretty pixelated. The colors in the details got a lot better and there are more mixes of colors instead of big blocks of solid color.
Special Features The PlayStation 2 has a few special things you can do. You can connect it to the internet and play multiplayer games with friends ( although I have never tried this because I heard it was really difficult to actually get a connection ), You can play both PS 2 and PS 1 games, and you can play CDs.
