In comparing the Sony PlayStation 3 to its chief competitor, the Xbox 360, it's safe to say that the PlayStation 3 may be the most complete video game console on the market. Here's why. PlayStation 3 is not just a video game console. It has been called the ultimate media center.
Of course PS3 supports high definition television. In fact the console has outputs for two HDTVs. When Sony created the PlayStation 3 gaming console, they went with Blu-Ray technology, rather than the HD format of high definition DVDs for videos. There are arguments as to which format is the best, but one thing is for certain. For gamers, having built-in Blu-Ray means that PS3 games have 50 GBs of stored game information, meaning lots and lots of detail enriching the gaming environment.
The Sony PlayStation 3 games can play discs using the latest Blu-Ray profile (2.0). Because of this 2.0 profile Sony has guaranteed that even if the specs change, PS3 will still be able to play it. Sony has also stepped up and is the only gaming console that is completely Divx certified. PS3 has completely outdistanced other gaming companies in the competition to have consoles become networked home media centers.
PlayStation 3 is also without doubt the most powerful video game console available. Its "Cell" processor is more powerful than many desktop PCs making gaming a truly rewarding experience. You won't be disappointed with either graphics or audio. Graphics are in high definition, with rich detail and fluid motion. Audio quality is excellent and even better when connected to good home stereo speakers.
