Sony At TGS
Sony had some perhaps the longest waiting line for their pamphlets-- any why not, after all not only are the the most popular booth, but they were also giving away free demo CDs of 4 games- Poporouge, Regaia Legend, Yuki War No Hana, and 2999 no Game kids.
IQ final and Crash Bandicoot 3 were on display and playable, but Sony's main game in this TGS was not a playstation game, but a portable machine.
 The Greatest presentation that Sony made was their new portable game machine- visitors of the Sony booth were also greeted with plastic model stickers fairly identical to the machine.    Sony's PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) named Pocket Station is compatible to the Playstation- more details on the actual games later.
Pocket Station is scheduled for  12/23/98 at the moment. Its specs goes as follows-

 The Pocket Station is a Playstation Memory card with the ability to enjoy an application downloaded from the Playstation machine and its software. By doing so, Playstation owners can enjoy their downloaded app anywhere while outside (park, train, work, etc). And also, due to its internal clock the downloaded app' on the Pocketstation can affect the Playstation game by date/season, and vice versa.
(IE: with a downloaded mini-game from the Playstation, the player can grow a character with the Pocketstation and then use it in the playstation)
Since the Pocketstation can communicate with other Pocketstations due to its two way wireless ability, trading data is possible. Data exchange between other wireless hardware which follows the IrDA is also possible. The PocketStation is about the same size as a memory card and comes in two colors- White and skeleton.
