Thus the [=PlayStation=] as we know it was conceived. Sony redesigned the "[=PlayStation=] X" from a fancy CD drive for the SNES and the technical specs from their project with Sega into a full-fledged console. Developers were getting excited by 3D gaming, so Kutaragi designed the system with that in mind. He also made sure it was easy to develop for, so programmers could get their 3D system right out the gate. Sony's developers licence had a "Come One, Come All" approach - if you could develop a game, you could put it on the [=PlayStation=]. That meant it published games like ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil1'' and ''VideoGame/SilentHill1'', which Nintendo and Sega would never have done. Thus began two generations of [=PlayStation=] dominance. The hardware was also adopted (often in modified form) for numerous UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame[=s=] by major companies such as [[Creator/BandaiNamco Namco]], Creator/{{Capcom}}, Creator/EightingRaizing, Creator/{{Taito}} and Creator/{{Tecmo}}. This had the benefit of making arcade ports much easier, since they could actually be ''ports'', rather than total conversions (essentially re-making the game from the ground up for drastically different hardware), which had previously been the norm.
