"When the PS3 was launched in November of 2006, many people did not know what to expect. This is the first time Sony would have a console that came with online capability at launch, plus have a store to sell games and other media. The first iteration of the PlayStation store was mediocre at best, offering little to nothing as far as demos, games, and content. The PS3 also suffered from only having a hand full of launch titles and very few features that PS3 supporters expected. Firmware updates gradually added functionality and features that were initially promised at launch. There were quite a few gripes and complaints, but Sony eventually turned up the heat and started cooking."
