Sony Park Exhibition ①GAME with okazakitaiiku

An encounter with new thrills and excitement inspired by PlayStation®, including successive generations of titles selected by Taiiku Okazaki

Video games are a unique form of entertainment allowing us to actively experience fantasies that could not exist in our world. We can connect with people and share time through games. Ginza Sony Park has heralded the theme "Gaming gives us tales of growth," believing these things called "games" are like social meeting places where people playing for the first time and experienced players alike can freely throw off their reserve.

The PlayStation® game console has also fostered a gathering-place-like gaming culture with many partners and fans. This exhibition floor brings together images of successive generations of PlayStations and game titles, and visitors can encounter PlayStation trivia that will make them want to talk to other people. Artist Taiiku Okazaki has also selected successive generations of PlayStation titles from his own gaming experience to match the "tales of growth" theme. In addition to an area where visitors can play demos of some of those titles on real PlayStation consoles from over the years, there will be hands-on areas for the PlayStation® 5 and a driving simulator on offer.

A large counter with successive generations of controllers embedded will be installed in the center of the venue as a symbol of the Ginza Sony Park gathering place.

Won't you spend some time at a gathering place where you can encounter new thrills and excitement inspired by PlayStation?

Gaming is a social place.

What comes to mind when you think of social places?

Places where people gather and talk.

Places where strangers, as well as people you know, can meet and enjoy carefree mingling.

Places where people can become friends by playing games together, or good players can
show off their skills for others to enjoy.

Games play a central role in connecting and expanding the circle of friends. That's what
Ginza Sony Park thinks of as being a social place.

PlayStation® has also cultivated a gaming culture like a social place, with the help of
numerous partners and fans.

Come and play at Ginza Sony Park's social place where PlayStation® has provided an
opportunity for you to enjoy new encounters and excitement.

Comments from Taiiku Okazaki

Hello! This is Taiiku Okazaki. I have participated in this event in the video game field.

For me, an only child, PlayStation has always been by my side since my early years of elementary school. It takes me to all kinds of worlds when I turn on the console and hold the controller, whether I am lonely or happy.

Explore the history of that magical treasure box with me.
