The second most requested product in Video Games and Consoles is Sony’s PS3 featuring IBM’s “Cell” processor and a co-developed Nvidia graphics processor that makes the system able to perform two trillion calculations per second. That’s approximately 320 times more calculations per second than the PS2. Along with the traditional AV and composite connections, it also boasts an HDMI port, which delivers uncompressed, unconverted digital picture and sound to compatible high-definition TV and projectors. The system is capable of 128-bit pixel precision and 1080p resolution for a full HD experience.
Sony’s PlayStation 3 games are encoded onto the Blu-Ray disc media format, which can hold six times as much data as traditional DVDs. This increase in capacity–combined with the awesome power of its processor and graphics card–promises mind-blowing games once developers have learned how to fully harness the new console’s power. The PS3 will also support CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD+R formats. Inside the controller is a high-precision six-axis sensing system that accurately detects fine movements in pitch, roll, and yaw, as well as three dimensions of movement, to control games. It uses Bluetooth 2.0 wireless technology and can support up to seven wireless controllers at a time. The PlayStation 3 will be backward compatible with PlayStation and PlayStation 2 games, which means you’ll be able to play all your favorite games without keeping all the old systems.
The games look absolutely amazing and you get a Blu-ray player to boot!
