PS, We Love You: Harnessing the Power of PlayStation 3

When Sony launched the PlayStation 3 gaming console in 2006, its graphics were muted; designers didn’t know how to handle the system’s complicated Cell processor. But now, after six years and four PS3 games’ worth of experience, development studio Naughty Dog has what promises to be a visual high point in the PS3 title The Last of Us.

In fact, the main lesson of the PS3’s existence might be that the evolution of graphics within a single console’s lifespan can be more impressive than the leap from one generation to the next. The PlayStation 4 is supposed to arrive at the end of this year, but developers won’t learn to harness its power for quite a while. Until that happens, here’s a look back at the PS3’s watershed visual moments. (Heavy Rain , Metal Gear Solid 4, PS3, Resistance: Fall of Man, The Last Of Us, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune)

Let's Wait till Beyond Two Souls Releases.

Beyond Two Souls also looks fantastic in the graphics department. Another most buy title for PS3 cant wait

I wouldn't call a Button prompt interactive movie a "must buy". It's only a must buy for fans of that very niche market.

@Lopez. Last time I checked it had shifted around 3 million copies. Niche? hardly.

@lopez_josue, Beyond Two Souls gameplay does not seem niche.

MotorStorm, Heavenly Sword, Uncharted and Ratched & Clank all still look very good today, 2008 had GT:Prologue, MGS4 and WipEout HD as graphical highlights, also still look good today. 2009, KillZone 2, inFamous, Uncharted 2, still look good today. God of War, Heavy Rain, GT5 in 2010 and, well they just keep on coming. Especially this year is quite expensive, and although I can hear my old fat PS3 has problems doing overtime I'm afraid I can't show mercy, must play it all before the PS4 is out. Including GTA5, oh dear.

Yeah good graphics but at a price.....Mutiplayer only has 4 vs 4.Less than uncharted 3 5 vs 5.
