The third generation of Creator/{{Sony}}'s [=PlayStation=] console, and Sony's entry in the SeventhGeneration, the [=PlayStation=] 3 tried to do with Blu-ray what PlayStation2 did with the original DVD format. They succeeded, but it took a significantly longer period of time. Sony knocked HD DVD out as a competitor, but primarily did so by rallying market support towards Blu-ray rather than offering any real innovation one way or the other. The recession a couple years after the [=PS3=] launched slowed down the sales of [=HDTVs=], which meant the synergy needed for Blu-ray to take off was hurt (regular DVD didn't need anything other than people having [=TVs=] with audio/video plugs, or adapters if they didn't). It also represented a last desperate attempt by Sony to save SACD and the first couple of generations were compatible. This failed utterly and the feature was quietly dropped along with PS2 backward compatibility with the CECHG revision.[[note]]Ironically, this inability was due to the [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil copy protection measures]] placed in by Sony for the [=PlayStation 2=]. The [=PS2=] has a built-in bypass for the copy protection on the discs, while the [=PS3=] does not.[[/note]] As [=HDTVs=] have since gotten cheaper and caught on, this problem has somewhat healed, but not completely. The opportunity for [=PS3=] to ride the wave of HD enthusiasm from launch has been lost forever.

But the [=PS3=] itself had bigger problems. The system was built with the dream of being an affordable supercomputer. Unfortunately, supercomputers are judged more by their relative processing power compared to computers of the age than by design and affordability. Even though the cell processor has a lot of speed, making an actual supercomputer from the system's parts requires linking several together. While several groups have done this, the need for multiple console units does defeat the notion of an "affordable" supercomputer.

But by going with this design, the system cost a lot more to make than previous [=PlayStation=] systems. The system launched at $500 US for the low-end CECHB 20 GB model and [[CrackIsCheaper FIVE-HUNDRED]] [[AndNinetyNineCents AND NINETY-NINE US DOLLARS]][[note]]''$600''[[/note]] for the high-end CECHA 60 GB revision. Not only did this make the system one of the most expensive ever (in Europe and Australia it was on the level of the [[UsefulNotes/ThreeDOInteractiveMultiplayer 3DO]], [[PhilipsCDi CDi]], and the NeoGeo) but the systems were being sold ''at a loss'' [[note]](at least in North America and Japan; the European and Australian releases were so horribly overpriced {at release it cost about $899 in Europe and '''$1,199''' in Australia} that Sony actually cleared a small profit from sales in those regions; while Australia is normally horribly overpriced on everything else, even as their dollar surpassed USD they still pay $80+ on games that the US pays $60 or less for; even when they were averaging around .7-.8, things were still atrociously overpriced and retailers figured they were used to it)[[/note]], and required the sale of five games per console before Sony broke even on the console ''itself''. The plan was to make with this in terms of software and Blu-ray sales (at least Sony Pictures movies, partly why they were so aggressive in getting rid of HD DVD), but Blu-ray sales were slower than they thought, and game sales, while decent, used to be below those of {{Xbox 360}} games, although this is not necessarily the case anymore.

The [=PS3=]'s programming was notoriously difficult to learn at first, which meant more time, effort, and money spent on game development, and the 360 had a year start. Thus, early on, developers faced the problem of either accepting a lower profit margin for a given game or selling it at a higher price. Since the games, except for [[EasternRPG JRPGs]], generally sold less (with some exceptions), but cost a lot either way (companies have stated HD games cost around two to three times as much as a {{Wii}} game), MultiPlatform releases started becoming even more common than in any generation before. As developers have gotten the hang of this, the problem has been marginalized, resulting in more software releases as of late, both MultiPlatform and exclusive.

While it's not so bad now, early on these factors severely hurt the [=PS3=] as it was and came in addition to an already bad PR problem caused by Sony's pre-launch marketing. Sony came across as arrogant, with Ken Kutaragi (the creator of the [=PlayStation=]) making statements such as the system would sell 5,000,000 even without games, and that he wanted people to want the [=PS3=] enough to work harder to earn it (forgetting that the CrackIsCheaper notion was mainly with [[PanderingToTheBase the base]], not the mainstream). There are a couple of other infamous lines, but most of those simply became Internet memes instead of hurting the system's reputation.

While the system itself had a strong design and reliable capabilities (it was also a very viable Blu-ray player alternative, particularly in the first few years when rather paradoxically it was MORE expensive to buy a dedicated Blu-Ray player that could only play movies, then it was to buy a PS3 that could do everything a Blu-Ray player could in addition to being a freaking gaming system), it failed to reach the heights of its predecessors, with Sony winding up losing the console gaming throne it held with the first two [=PlayStations=]. The console launched in late 2006, but didn't turn a profit for Sony Computer Entertainment until the third quarter of 2008.

In August 2009, a new variant of the [=PS3=] has been released -- the ''Slim'', a [[ProductFacelift smaller device]] with most of the same features and a relatively significant reduction in power needs. More importantly, this led to price drops all around, putting the [=PS3=] within striking range of the Xbox 360. Since [=PS3s=] are still more technologically advanced than Xbox 360s, and since Microsoft discontinued its midprice 360 model in the meantime, the fortunes of the [=PS3=] have improved (as in, more
releases). If 3D TV catches on, that might help, since Sony introduced 3D support with the 3.50 update and recent games like ''[[{{GranTurismo}} Gran Turismo 5]]'' and ''VideoGame/{{Killzone}} 3'' are taking full advantage of it.

In September 2012, an even slimmer model of the [=PS3=] was released. Dubbed the ''Super-Slim'', this model cut costs even further by removing the front-loading slot drive in favor of a top loading drive (similar to its predecessors -- the PlayStation2 Slim and PSOne -- before) and shrinking the unit size even further, and the value model will ship with 12GB of flash storage instead of a hard drive.

The [=PS3=] was notable for avoiding RegionCoding, this maneuver comparable to that on the NintendoDS. Prior to June 2012, all [=PS3=] games and downloadable [=PSOne=] games are region-free, and although the PSN store is picky about accepting credit cards from other regions, PSN games downloaded from it are not region coded. Blu-ray Discs, [=DVDs=], [=PS2=], and [=PS1=] discs remain region-locked. Originally, [=PS3=] games were to have optional region-locking capabilities (where it's up to the publisher of the game to decide if the game was to be pressed with region coding) and a region-locking scheme was implemented on the consoles. But, due to consumer pressure (the first adopters for this system both knew about and hated the idea of region coding) and pressure from various governments, the idea of region locking [=PS3=] games was quickly abandoned. Game discs manufactured were mandated to be region free. An HDTV is needed to guarantee playing all out-of-region games -- while some PAL games will also run on NTSC televisions and vice versa, others will not. Several publishers have attempted to publish region-locked games in the past, but backed out after outcries and threats of boycott.

However, this doesn't mean that the game can't detect what region the console it's running on and react accordingly: The CountrySwitch trope entry has anecdotes of [=PS3=] games that do detect the region of the console they're running on, although the most drastic thing these detections do appears to be simply disabling blood and gore if the console's detected to be ''Japanese''. Which is [[MundaneMadeAwesome funny]] when you consider [[AmericanKirbyIsHardcore another, somewhat unrelated, trope]].

This issue culminated in July 2012, when ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' became the first region-locked game for the console to be published, with Creator/{{Atlus}} boneheadedly ignoring the threats of boycott. The fanbases of both the game and the console weren't pleased, and said game has culminated in InternetBackdraft and HypeBacklash after it was announced (to surprise of no one) that the European release has been delayed indefinitely[[note]]It was eventually released in Europe in May 2013, '''10 months later'''[[/note]]. However the latter speculates that Atlus's deal with Sony could open the floodgates to other developers demanding that Sony region-lock their games in the future, a worrying move to import gamers everywhere.

It was later found out that a second game, a Japan PSN exclusive called ''[=JoySound=] Dive'', was also region locked.

PS2 support for the console was dropped on third-generation consoles. The PS3 does have the ability to emulate PS2 games in software, but because of difficulties emulating games made for certain PS2 firmware builds Sony has limited this to a handful of downloadable "PS2 Classics". [[UsefulNotes/{{UNIX}} Linux]] support was dropped with the introduction of the Slim version of the console. Older versions of the consoles[[note]]CECHA through CECHE[[/note]] will still be able to enjoy PS2 support, however. As of firmware version 3.21 (released on 1 April 2010, and this is no April Fool's joke), the "[=OtherOS=]" support was dropped from the older models. The removal of the [=OtherOS=] function has gotten Sony some backlash and even at least six lawsuits including one by the Dutch government[[note]]This is probably because some governments were using the feature for non-gaming purposes.[[/note]], although it should be noted that this was done to prevent piracy.

For the bulk of its lifespan, the [=PS3=] was also the most difficult of the 7th-generation consoles to hack or use homebrew-like software. While it ''has'' been done, it is significantly more rare than it is on other consoles. There are very active and dedicated communities at work, but overall response has been taken in multiple directions. And it's best left at that.

Also infamous for a DadaAd marketing campaign for the first year, but has gained some real acclaim for a recent marketing effort with their campaign of "It only does everything" (simultaneously a meme turned into a message of the console's strengths and a focus on the console's versatility, rather than confusing the public), coupled with the comedic offerings of Kevin Butler, the (fictional) VP of nebulous divisions, even if some Nigerians don't find it very funny.

At the 2010 Game Developers Conference, Sony unveiled the PlayStation Move, a device similar in concept and design to the {{Wii}}, but which has more functions in addition to being both HD and 3D compatible, as well as having a high level of precision. Two controllers can be used at once, some games will use two of the primary controllers (the ones with the ball on the end) at once to simulate two handed actions, and others may instead use the secondary remote with the control stick and d-pad. The secondary one, called the Navigation Controller is not required, as the left side of the DualShock 3 aka Sixaxis can be used instead. It ''does'' require adding a [=PSEye=] camera to the system, though. It's also worth noting that regardless of whether the Wii was anything of an inspiration, or how much of one is disputed, [[http://kotaku.com/5640867/motion-gaming-gains-momentum development actually began as early as 2001.]] While the PS Move's sales behind Xbox's Kinect, it has generally received better reception with both its audience and critics.

The [=PS3=] has also been the center of political controversy several different times. Among these times, the PSN was once shut down for weeks at a time due to a security breach, and LG once got the [=PS3=] banned in Holland for 10 days.[[note]]LG is the corporate descendant of Philips. They seem to think that they patented [[PhilipsCDi consoles that do everything]]. The two parties settled in early August with a cross-licensing deal--Sony had already gone after LG for at least one product before LG went after the [=PS3=].[[/note]]

In February 2013, Sony announced the PlayStation4, which was released in late November 2013. The console made a profit for Sony in December 2013, after just entering the marker for a month.



[[folder: Processors ]]
* CPU: IBM [=POWER5-based=] Cell Broadband Engine, or just Cell, running at 3.2GHz and rated for 230.4 GFLOPS.
** There's one central Power Processing Element (PPE), which acts as a controller for the smaller processors.
** There are 7 Synergistic Processing Elements (SPE). These do the bulk of the work. 6 of 7 are available for games, with the 7th one for the OS.
* GPU: NVIDIA [=GeForce=] 7800GTX based "Reality Synthesizer," or RSX, running at 550MHz


[[folder: Memory ]]
* Two memory pools:
** 256 MB of XDR memory at 3.2 [=GHz=] with 15GB/s write and 20GB/s read bandwidth. This is shared between the CPU and GPU.
** 256MB [=GDDR3=] memory at 700 [=MHz=] with 22.4 GB/s bandwidth. This is used by the GPU exclusively.
* Stock hard drive sizes ranges from 20 to 500 GB, but any 2.5" SATA drive can be installed.
** The budget super slim model ships with 12GB of flash instead of a hard drive, though one can be installed later.
* 2x Blu-Ray drive. Blu-Ray movies, [=DVDs=] and [=CDs=] are all supported.
** Bandwidth is 9 MB/s. This is why ''Metal Gear Solid IV'' took forever to install.
** The first two generations of the [=PS3=] [[note]]CECHA through CECHE[[/note]] also played the rare Super Audio CD, an ultra-high-fidelity audio disc format.
* The NTSC 60GB and 80GB and the PAL 60 GB models had a Memory Stick, SD and [=CompactFlash=] card reader.


[[folder: Graphics ]]
* Can support resolutions up to 1080p native for some games. But most games were 720p or as low as 640p.
* Supports [[UsefulNotes/ApplicationProgrammingInterface OpenGL ES 1.1]] with some NVIDIA's Cg.
* It cannot support HDR and antialiasing at the same time, though the former can be faked convincingly.
* Supports "quincunx" antialiasing, which is 2x MSAA + the values of 3 neighboring pixels. This results in an image with fewer "jaggies," but is slightly blurred.
* Video acceleration is not supported on Linux, due to Sony restricting hardware-level access to the RSX via a hypervisor.


[[folder: Connections ]]
* AV outputs to either the HDMI port or the proprietary A/V port with composite, S-Video, and component support.
* 4 USB slots, dropped to 2 with the release of the NTSC 40 GB model.
* 1 Gigabit Ethernet port
* 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, except the NTSC 20 GB revision.
* 1 TOS-LINK optical output.
