The PS3, Two Decades On: How Will It Be Remembered?

The end of an era has come upon us and with the release of Sony's Playstation 3 successor in 2013, the aptly named Playstation 4, the Playstation 3 is increasingly coming of age, but the question is, how will it be remembered?

X360 pulled out a good fight,largely due to its early release, but the ps3 was a beast on it own and the best console ever created, not for devs, i know!!!

Xof3108d ago

The original PS3, certainly. It had an excellent library in its own right, and PS1 and PS2 backwards compatibility fully tripled that. Easily the single best (dedicated) gaming platform we've ever seen.

Totally agree, and all that for half the price of BR player, way back then!!!


Sony expands emotion-sensing plans with new patent for games that know & adapt to your feelings

From Xfire: "Imagine a PlayStation that could sense and react to gamer's joy, frustration, or boredom."

Great so my console is going to be depressed and anxious 24/7

come now Fox, we all know you also have bouts of enjoyment while playing some games. Therefore it's not all depression and anxiety, just 90% that. ;P

No, when it knows you are depressed, then it would cheer you up, to keep gamers in a good mental state.

Is Peter Molyneux working for Sony now?

RonnySins1d 8h ago

No, thanks. I want to play games, not to be a lab rat for your experiments.

technically this could be used to enhance games. Struggling with something and just broke your controller. We see you, dial down the difficulty to noob so you can finally have that dopamine rush of excitement which comes from finally beating that boss...

I mean, I agree, no thanks, but patents like these tend to be rather premature and something that wouldn't come to fruition for a few+ more decades. Proof of concept and trademark so others can't capitalize on the idea... Even then, it did come to fruition it still requires the player to have a camera in their room or a headset on. Long as they don't force something like this similar to what XB did with Kinect then to each their own I suppose. It's a hard pass for me though, and if they tried to force something like this on a PS console, see ya later PS.

Turn up. I'm ready. Let's open the flood gates, I'm in a hurry to some something "actually crazy" in gaming.

congratulations sony well done

Cacabunga20d ago

We need first party exclusives to keep gamers excited and those sales up..
Announce a new Killzone or start with a remake of the second one. Sony has its flagship FPS but doesn’t believe enough in it!!
Show us that gaas format is not a big part of the way forward.

DefenderOfDoom220d ago

Since the launch of PS4 Killzone Shadow Fall has been the only Sony 1st party FPS campaign released. Would love a new Killzone or Resistance.

Eonjay21d ago

Very solid quarter and this doesn't even include Spiderman 2.

stonecold321d ago

spiderman sold 5 million now been updated

Eonjay21d ago

So it actually outsold Mario?

shadowT21d ago

Hofstaderman21d ago

Nobody stopping this train. Well done and well deserved.

JusttJD009921d ago

Wait... that can't be...

Sony was done for and everyone would switch to X-Box because of Starfield & activision/Blizzard!!!
How... how can that be?!?!

Ah, right... we like quality games and that's why we stick with Playstation.
