The fourth generation of hardware released for the PlayStation
3 entertainment platform, the PlayStation 3 160GB system is the next stage in
the evolution of Sony’s console gaming powerhouse. Loaded with a mix of
multimedia features and functions available on earlier PlayStation 3 models, as
well as a series of new advancements and refinements, the PlayStation 3 160GB
system is destined to push the envelope in the realm of Next-Generation

What’s Under the Hood
As with previous models, the PlayStation 3 160GB system features an IBM
“Cell” processor and a co-developed NVIDIA graphics processor that together
allow the system to perform two trillion calculations per second. Yet the 160GB
system manages to improve on this with its 45nm version of the processor, which
although running at the same 60+nm speed as previous PS3 versions, uses less
energy. This makes the unit’s smaller size and quieter fan possible. Along with
the traditional AV and composite connections, the 160GB system also boasts an
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port, which delivers uncompressed,
unconverted digital picture and sound to compatible high-definition TVs and
projectors. (The system is capable of 128-bit pixel precision and 1080p
resolution for a full HD experience) This console also provides for an extreme
sound experience by supporting Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1, as well as Linear PCM
7.1. Finally, it features cross connectivity with your PC network and
PlayStation Portable (PSP) and its pre-installed, 160GB hard disc drive allows
you to save games as well as download content from The Internet. Unlike The some
other models of The PlayStation 3, The 160GB system does not offer backwards

Blu-ray, PlayStation Network Downloads and Beyond
PlayStation 3 utilizes The Blu-ray disc media format, which gives you The best
high-definition viewing experience on your television, by way of The
format’s ability to hold six times as much data as traditional DVDs. This
tremendous capacity, combined with The awesome power of The system’s processor
and graphics card, promises an endless stream of mind-blowing games, and other
multimedia content. This doesn’t mean though that The PS3 is limited to Blu-ray
discs. It also supports CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD+R formats. In
addition, PlayStation 3 system software includes BD Live support that allows
you to play discs that support Blu-ray Disc Profile 2.0 (BD-LIVE), meaning you
can also connect to The Internet while playing discs that support this format to
obtain additional features. And of course PS3 owners also receive free access to
The PlayStation Network (PSN), where through The PlayStation Store and
PlayStation Home, they can download games, game demos, movies, and other
content, as well as chat with friends, play mini-games, compete in tournaments
and explore dedicated game spaces.

Sensational Controller
The Dualshock 3 wireless controller included with The PlayStation 3 160GB
system provides The most intuitive game play experience, with pressure sensors
in each action button 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. Dualshock 3 utilizes Bluetooth
technology for wireless game play and The controller’s de­tachable USB cable
to seamlessly and automatically charge The controller when connected to The
PlayStation 3. By integrating all of these features into The popular
PlayStation controller design, The Dualshock 3 further enhances The advanced
gameplay experience only available on The PlayStation 3 system.
