Playstation

Playstation is a video game console developed by Sony. The first Playstation was released in 1994, followed by Playstation 2 (PS2) in 2000 and Playstation 3 (PS3) in 2006.

The initial version of the console represented a significant improvement in terms of graphic quality over the existing cartridge players of the early 1990s. Games encoded on CD-ROM s allowed faster loading times, improved graphical user interfaces ( GUI s) and richer visual environments.

PS2 represented another leap in processing power and game play at its introduction with a CPU capable of 66 million polygons per second. PS2 also included USB ports and a modem , allowing players to play online ..

Direct competition with Microsoft's XBox 360 and Nintendo's Wii console led to the release of the PS3. The PS3 includes an entire new generation of enhancements, including :
