Sony Playstation

Sony PlayStation is a line of video game console devices designed by Sony to compete with other gaming platforms like Nintendo s Wii and Microsoft s Xbox 360. The current edition, PlayStation 3, or simply PS3, debuted in November 2006 with added support for Blu-ray Discs (BD), full High Definition resolution graphics, PlayStation Portable connectivity and motion control in games through the new SIXAXIS wireless controller.

PlayStation 3 also introduced support for the PlayStation Network, an online gaming and entertainment content service that provides streamed TV, movie and music content as well as online multiplayer “social” gaming with voice, text and video chat support.

There are rumors of a 2012 release for the Sony PlayStation 4, which will serve as the successor to the PS3. The PlayStation 4 is expected to compete with new Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox gaming devices that are also expected to debut in 2012.
