I had a PlayStation. Not some "slim" version or "late-era model". The original. The real one.
It had a built-in CD player with a rather elegant, if "blocky", GUI.
In the latest episode of AVGN, the Nerd puts in a music CD into his PlayStation (which visually looks just like the classic one, so it's not the later "PSOne" model) and (probably with sarcasm) claims that it's "the best CD player ever".
What's displayed on his TV is not what I expected. Instead, the GUI looks completely different, with bright, "friendly" colors and shapes. Nothing whatsoever like what I remember so vividly. This both shocked and annoyed me. Now, a whole generation of kids who watches that video will forever think that's how the CD player GUI looked like in the PlayStation...
It doesn't seem like he made this up. It looks far too polished/professional to be some "two-second gag" just for the video. I assume that Sony did change the GUI after some time, but the fact remains that his PlayStation, as seen in the video underneath the TV, is the classic, "bulky", grey one. So apparently, they changed the GUI while they were still making the classic PlayStation model(s)? That's curious to me, if true.
Or is this a case where he shot the parts with the Nerd in his room and had other people help him with all the capturing of footage, to save time, and those people only had access to a "PSOne" which would feature this "childish" GUI instead of the far more "industrial" looking original GUI? It looks like it's his (modern) TV in the "Nerd room", though, so that seems unlikely in this case.
