This is a first for us here at RGM, an article about clothing. You may be asking, what does clothing have to do with retro gaming? Just clothing doesn’t have much in common, but when it is officially licensed Sony Playstation clothing celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the platform, we can fudge the rules a bit. The team over at Insert Coin Clothing have created some rather “interesting” pieces for Sony’s celebration festivities.
These items are just right for gamers wanting to take their nostalgia to their wardrobe. From a Playstation themed tote bag to varsity jacket to a basketball jersey. The only thing missing is a baseball cap.
The coloring of these items is classic Playstation grey with the colorful logo emblazoned in, somewhat, subtle areas of the clothing. You won’t be strutting down the catwalk wearing these pieces of clothing but you will definitely be the talk of a gaming show you attended.
While not the first option that I would have thought of to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Playstation, clothing is interesting and different. Obviously clothing such as jerseys and the like would be better served celebrating, oh I don’t know, a sports game like Madden NFL or something. I am not complaining about these pieces of clothing with the various bits of the Playstation branding on them, just that I am a little surprised that Sony licensed these. I am sure there is a market out there for licensed gaming clothing though. Insert Coin Clothing is betting on it too.
These pieces will be available sometime during March of this year, just around the corner.
