Its built in Blu-ray Disc drive delivers a whole new generation in High Definition gaming and unmatched digital media storage. Whether it's Gaming, Blu-ray Disc Movies, Music or Online entertainment services - This is Living, with PlayStation 3.
Blu-ray Disc - Welcome to High Definition
Next generation entertainment needs a next generation format to store the vast amounts of data required to render High Definition game worlds and movies. Blu-ray Disc is that format - and it's fully supported by PlayStation 3. The huge amount of data storage offered by Blu-ray makes it ideal for High Definition. The ability to access more data means that game makers can embrace the demands of next generation development - ensuring that PlayStation 3 will cater for the most ambitious entertainment experiences in the years to come.
Connect Your PlayStation 3 to a High Definition TV & Enjoy Your Games, Movies & Photos in Amazing Detail
Create a perfect partnership by connecting PS3 to an HDTV. Scenes are rendered in amazing detail, all the way up to the best resolution that today's technology can offer - 1080p. Seeing your entertainment in this kind of detail transports you to the scene of a movie, and makes games feel far more immediate and realistic. What's more, High Definition means you can show your digital photos off on an impressive flat screen display - which is quick and easy with PS3.
Free to access for all PlayStation 3 owners, PlayStation Network brings a wealth of connected entertainment to your living room.
When you sign up for free access to PlayStation Network (broadband required), you gain access to a wealth of services that really add to your PS3 experience. Feeling sociable? Try playing your favourite game online - at no additional cost - or chat with your friends via text or voice.
If you're after something new, browse PlayStation Store - your gateway to full games, demos of forthcoming blockbusters, and all kinds of HD trailers and game add-ons. Or sit back and surf the Internet from your sofa via the built-in browser.
PlayStation has always been home to great games from the world's most skilled game developers - and the story is no different with PS3. What has changed is the sheer potential that such a powerful system brings.
With a Hard Disk Drive and Blu-ray Disc storage as standard, developers can now create worlds of previously unimaginable size and detail, while the processing speed of the Cell Broadband Engine allows for advanced physical simulation and Artificial Intelligence.
Combine it all with advanced High Definition graphics, and you get games that are more impressive and immersive than ever before.
