Cell Broadband Engine™
The PLAYSTATION®3 is powered by the Cell Broadband Engine™,
a revolutionary microprocessor that leapfrogs the performance of existing
processors, giving the PLAYSTATION®3 system supercomputer-like power
and performance that until now, game developers have only dreamt about.
DUALSHOCK®3 Wireless Controller (included)
The DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controller for the PLAYSTATION®3
system provides the most intuitive game play experience
with pressure sensitive buttons and the inclusion of the
highly sensitive SIXAXIS™ motion sensing technology.
Each hit, crash and explosion is more realistic when the
user feels the rumble right in the palm of their hand. It
can even detect natural movements for real-time and high
precision interactive play, acting as a natural extension
of the user's body. The DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controller
utilizes Bluetooth technology for wireless game play and
the controller's USB cable to seamlessly and automatically
charge the controller through the hardware.
Next-generation entertainment needs a next-generation format.
Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) is that format. Just as the DVD offered
a technological leap from CDs, Blu-ray Disc is the next leap forward
in the advancement of data storage technology and digital entertainment.

offers game developers unprecedented power to express their creativity
and a larger canvas to produce a level of interaction, sophistication
and reality that has never existed in gaming. More than an evolution,
Blu-ray is a revolution that frees High-Definition Capabilities.
