Dudley Dursley

The PlayStation (abbreviated PSX, PSone, or PS1) is a fifth-generation video game console manufactured by Sony.[1] Dudley Dursley threw his out the window in the summer of 1994, because his parents threatened to cut his allowance if he didn't stop sneaking unhealthy food while on a diet. As such, he was unable to play Mega-Mutilation Part Three, a game for this console.

Behind the scenes

  • The PlayStation was not commercially released until December 1994 in Japan and September 1995 in Europe.[1] However, prototypes were made available to game developers before December 1994, some of which ended up being sold to private consumers.[2] It is possible that Vernon and Petunia Dursley, as indulgent parents, purchased one of these prototypes for Dudley. Alternatively, the Harry Potter novels may take place in a universe in which the PlayStation was released earlier than in our own, or Harry, due to his lack of interest in Muggle technology, might have confused the PlayStation with a similar console.
  • Regarding PlayStations, Harry Potter series author J. K. Rowling has stated "I can’t work PlayStations. I’m no good at these things."[3]
  • The PlayStation and its future incarnations, the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 have been amongst the many consoles that have hosted versions of the Harry Potter video game releases.
  • In April 2013, Pottermore will be integrated into PlayStation Home, a feature available to members of the PlayStation Network, accessible through the PlayStation 3 console. The feature will introduce a new minigame called "Book Herding," as well as an expanded Duelling system and will also allow exist Pottermore users to link their accounts and collect new trading cards.[4]
