    Sony listened to devs about RAM back in 1994 - PS1 was to have 1 MB system RAM

    From Next Generation magazine #6 - June 1995.

    Sometime in 1994 before PlayStation was finalized, development systems
    only had 1 MB of main system RAM not to mention the 1 MB VRAM and 0.5 MB RAM for audio.

    Developers requested that PlayStation have an additional
    1 MB of main system RAM so they could make better games.

    Sony listened...

    ...as they did recently with PS4.

    The final PlayStation had a total of 3.5 MB RAM:
    2 MB main + 1 MB VRAM + 0.5 MB for audio.


    Also, an interview with Ken Kutaragi from the same issue:
