Welcome to Let’s PlayPlay! Graham and Jenni check out PlayPlay 2, Volume 0, the first demo disc of the Japan-only counterpart to PlayStation Underground’s PS2 series. PlayPlay, also known as PurePure or プレプレ, was a subscription service for PlayStation and PlayStation 2 that sent quarterly demo discs in the mail full of demos, trailers and commercials.
Included on this disc are trailers for a bunch of early-era PS2 games (including some that never made it to America), a real-time graphics demo for Gran Turismo 3, some peculiar Japanese commercials and… well, we may have discovered one of our new favorite things.
There’s not a lot of information out there about these discs, so we’d love to make this a regular feature! Spread the word if you’d like to see us do more of these.
Topics include: poor camera work, Morning Musume, attempting to name that game, cel shading, sweet flavors, Crashmas.
