The Playstation 3 game console is part of the Playstation series from Sony. It has been placed in direct competition with other seventh generation gaming consoles like Nintendo`s Wii and Microsoft`s Xbox 360. The major enhancement of this console over its predecessors is its ability to be a part of the Playstation network.

Its other salient features include a terrific multimedia capability. Two main models were released including one with 20GB hard drive and another with 60 GB hard drive.
History of the PS3:
The Playstation 3 game console first arrived on the scene in May 2005. It had 2 HDMI ports, 6 USB ports and 3 Ethernet ports. But later on, a cost-cutting measure led to the reduction of features and there were now 1 HDMI port, 4 USB ports and 1 Ethernet port. Pricing structure was also released with the 20 GB variety costing $499 and the 60 GB variety costing $599. There was Wi-Fi Internet and an HDMI port in the 60 GB variety. There was also a beautiful silver logo which was absent on the 20 GB variety.
Right now, the Playstation 3 game console is available in 5 varieties of 20, 40, 60, 80 and 160 GB hard drives. All of them contain 1 or 2 Sixaxis controllers, 1 miniUSB to USB cable, 1 power cable, 1 Ethernet cable, 1 composite video output cable and/or a DualShock 3 controller. With the release of more and more models of PS3, backward compatibility with the Playstation has vanished.
