Sony PS3 Launches
By Victor Vargo
Regardless of what you like or what you�ve got there is always something new and just a little bit better in the video gaming world. In that spirit, Sony is finally all set to release its latest gem into the gaming industry with playstation 3 hitting the market just in time for the holiday season.
Just as you would expect, the PlayStation 3 is a remarkable product that will take the hardcore Sony fans breath away in comparison to the PlayStation 2 and finally provide a rival to the Microsoft golden child, Xbox 360. For those of you that have not been salivating or stopping by your local electronics store everyday for the last year, here is a summary of what to expect from the PlayStation 3.
The newest technology available to movie-goers is the Blu-Ray format, which will also be available to those who purchase a PlayStation 3. The PS3 is capable of playing Blu-Ray discs, which are essentially a more high profile, or high definition, way of playing DVDs. While there are Blu-Ray discs that you can play in a Blu-Ray player or the PS3, you can also play regular DVDs in either.
With the introduction of the Blu-Ray disc to a video game console the possibilities for gamers is much like making the jump from the old �Nintendo� games to the PlayStation original�s discs. So much more sophistication and intricate game play is possible with the larger space available on Blu-Ray discs in comparison to regular DVD or CD discs.
The PlayStation 3 is equipped with a Cell Broadband Engine that makes a much smoother gaming experience possible due to a processor that puts the old �single core processor� systems to shame. Combining this with the ability to have discs that allow high-definition gaming and more sophistication will make for a gaming experience like never before.
Sony is also adding in the multi-axis motion sensing system into the controllers for the PlayStation 3 to give gamers a better feeling of control than ever before with seamless interaction.
PlayStation 3 is making history in the video gaming industry by making the hard drive within the system removable and therefore very easy to upgrade. There is an option for the purchase of a system with a 20GB hard drive, but if it is out of your price range initially don�t worry, you can upgrade later.
If you are a lifetime or hardcore Sony gamer then you will be happy to know that the PlayStation 3 is very compatible with previous PlayStation systems. PSP can be used as a remote or even other possibilities depending on the game, for instance, it is used as a rear-view mirror in some racing games. Also, the PS3 is backwards compatible, meaning you can play almost every previous PS1or PS2 game on the PS3 with little to no changes whatsoever.
Those who are simply looking for the newest and best way to play a game will enjoy PS3 for its ability to wow you with graphics and sound. Those who are hardcore gamers will enjoy it for its ingenuity and sophistication in respect to gaming potential. Either way, there are many reasons to be excited about the PlayStation 3!
