Repetitive, Repetitive, Repetitive

If you're looking for a great documentary to highlight PlayStation's launch, this is the one for you, but be prepared to hear the point in English, then the same point in Japanese twice more right afterwards. E.g.: English: "We wanted to launch and sell 100,000 units in Japan day 1, that'd be a good number for us". Followed by the Japanese version right after that took over 4 minutes: "Normally Sony only launches with 5000-6000 units for a new product launch, but PlayStation we wanted to launch with 100,000 units, which is not something Sony normally does. So that's different from normal. So we had to change a lot to do that. We had to produce in mass quantity, which is not something Sony does - so it was quite different from what we did at that time. Then we had to deliver those units to the stores for sale". No new valuable information from this entire section of the film and an utter waste of time IMO. This process repeats...A LOT. By the middle of the documentary, I was just fast forwarding through every piece with Japanese speakers as it was always 100% repetitious.

The best video game doc I've ever seen

After years of waiting, the team here has delivered what can only be described as a masterpiece in field of video game documentaries. Just simply a phenomenal, and intimate view into the industry during the 90's to the mid 2000's, featuring interviews from everyone of the era including Sony execs, engineers, devs, dozens of developers and development heads - and even Sega. Truly everything I wanted from an industry documentary about the most important, and monumental generational shift in videogame history. Thank you!

Really good, but not quite what I wanted or expected.

So, finally, after looking forward to this for at leat 2 years and a constantly pushed back released date, I got to watch FBTB: The PlayStation Revolution! I loved the first 2. Very insightful and full of great characters that the 80s seemed to have in droves. When I seen the runtime at just over 2hrs 40mins I was extremely happy. I'm a PlayStation generation guy and was looking forward to some nostalgia. It was there, but even by the end I wasn't as satisfied as I was with the 2 FBTB's before. I expected much more in depth looks at the amazing range of games like "Resident Evil", "Metal Gear Solid" and "Gran Turismo". There were small segments maybe ranging from 3/7minutes but I wanted more. I enjoy most of the tech stuff but felt there was far too much emphasis on this. Kinda like when a movie spends too much time character building and before you know it, the movies nearly done. The Caulfield's no doubt know how to make brilliant documentaries but this didn't hit the limit their previous work done and that's a shame. Don't get me wrong, I'd still highly recommend it and look forward to watching it again with my 12 year old son who is PlayStation mad and will love it. I suppose I'm maybe being a bit harsh due to my own thoughts on what I wanted to see but all I can do is give an honest opinion. Keep up the work though, guys. I look forward to seeing more documentaries in the future.
