The PlayStation 3 generation
PlayStation 3 is part of play station series and the successor of PlayStation 2. In November 11, 2006, PlayStation 3 was released in Japan. It competes with Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Nintendo's Wii. Blue-ray Disc is its primary storage medium and it has an active internet connection that will automatically check online for software updates each time the console is started. Updates may be downloaded directly from the PlayStation Network to the PS3 and subsequently installed. You can also update its operating system into Linux.
PlayStation 3 was produced in various models: the Original, the Slim and the Super Slim. In September 2009 PlayStation 3 Slim, was released. Slim is lighter and thinner than the original model but Sony removed the ability to install another operating system. The further refined and portable PlayStation 3 Super Slim was released in late 2012. This third iteration of the console is the thinnest and smallest so far. Super Slim PS3 doesn't feature anything new beyond its smaller size and storage capacities. PlayStation 3s sales hit a record of 75 million worldwide and there will be an upcoming successor which is PlayStation 4 that is set to release on November 15, 2013.
The standard PlayStation 3 versions includes 9 categories of options: Users, Settings, Photo, Music, Video, Game, Network, PlayStation Network and Friends. It also has TV category which displayed between Music and Video if PlayTV or Torne is installed. The good thing about PlayStation 3, it has a fashionable and elegant design and user-friendly interface; All games is in high definition; It plays high-definition Blu-ray movies in addition to its DVDs up scaling standard; has a built in wifi so you can play online games for free and flash media reader; compatible in all PS1 and PS2 games.
As for my own opinion, PlayStation 3 still doesn't reach the gaming console qualification because of its fingerprint magnet glossy black finish, non-Bluetooth universal remotes aren't compatible and online gaming, media, and commerce options not nearly as developed in Xbox Live. If backward compatibility is your top priority, this hard-to-find Sony PlayStation 3s may be worth the search.
