Today’s Eio post is on the PlayStation 3.

The PlayStation 3, also known as the PS3, is the successor to the PlayStation 2 and rivals competing Nintendo Wii and XBox 360 video game consoles.

There are several versions of the PS3, but only one type is currently in production: the PS3 Slim. Release in 2009, this version is slimmer than its predecessor. It comes in several colors, and varies in terms of how much digital storage space you want to include. You can choose from a 150, 250, 160, or 320GB hard drive storage space on your PS3 Slim. Other features of the PS3 console include its unified online gaming service, the PlayStation Network, its multimedia capabilities, connectivity with the PlayStation Portable (PSP), and its Blu-ray Disc player.


Video Compatible – the PS3 is video playback compatible, meaning it can play many movies, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs. It can also stream Netflix movies or TV shows.

Internet – PS3 has full internet browser with Wi-Fi capability. You can compete with your friends over multiplayer online games.

Backward Compatibility – the PS3 can also play earlier versions of PlayStation software and games.

Internal Hard Drive Storage – depending on how much space you need, you can buy your PS3 with a built-in hard drive with 150GB, 160GB, 250GB, or 320GB.

Wireless Controller – you can purchase a wireless control, which has range up to 30 feet and battery life of up to 30 hours on two AA batteries. Old fashioned wired controllers are also available if you don’t want to worry about battery life.
