					The PlayStation 3 Saga: Information you Should be Aware Of


How do you define entertainment in the 21st century?

Gone are the days when operas, theatrical plays, and circus events were
the most popular forms of entertainment. With the evolution and rapid
development of technology nowadays, entertainment is now on its
interactive form.

Kids and adults alike find themselves enjoying the benefits of
technology, especially on the entertainment industry. Animated and
digital films as well as high-technology gadgets replaced traditional
forms of entertainment. The impact of technology to the entertainment
industry is evident such that it produced one of the most popular
machinery of all time, especially to the younger generations of our
society—the video game console.

Almost every ordinary American household owns at least a video game
console. Since the Magnavox Odyssey era, video game consoles proved its
worth to be one of the most popular forms of entertainment, especially to
the younger generations of our society. The interesting storyline behind
every game as well as the animation features are regarded to be one of
the contributing factors to the success of video game consoles in the
entertainment industry.

Thus, it is not surprising that video game consoles reached its seventh
generation, which began in the last quarter of 2005 with the release of
Microsoft Corporation's Xbox 360. Thanks to the Big 3 of video gaming
industry (Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo), video game consoles are
evolving fast, resulting to the production of advanced and more powerful
video game consoles.

Among the members of the seventh generation of video game consoles is
Sony's PlayStation 3, which is scheduled to be released on different
dates in major countries around the world. Its initial release was
announced to be on November 11, 2006 in Japan, November 17 of the same
year in Canada and United States, and March 2007 in Australasia and
Europe.

The third member of Sony's PlayStation series, PS3 was officially
unveiled to the public during the E3 Conference on May 16, 2005. The
release will involve the shipment of two configurations, as detailed in
the Sony press release. The premium version of the PS3 contains an
internal 60 GB hard drive, multiple flash memory card reader, wireless
internet connectivity, and a brighter cosmetic silver-colored trim. On
the other hand, the alternative configuration of the console comes with
an internal 20 GB hard drive (which is upgradeable), yet without wireless
internet connectivity as well as a memory card reader.

According to the information announced on the PS3 press release, the
