The History of Video Game Systems

By TJ Michaels

 

Video game systems are more notably referred to as gaming consoles. Some of the most popular video game systems include PlayStation (the entire series), Xbox (the entire series), Nintendo (the entire series) and Sega Genesis.

 

The very first console, PlayStation, was released back in 1994. The games were published on CDs and any PlayStation game could be played on PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3. PlayStation 2 was released in North America in 2000 and PlayStation 3 was released in North America in November of 2006. Nintendo: Nintendo has released quite a few different video game consoles in their gaming history. In 1989, the Game Boy, a handheld system, was released by Nintendo.

 

History  of  PlayStation 3

 

The PlayStation 3 (Japanese: プレイステーション3, Hepburn: Pureisutēshon Surī?, officially abbreviated as PS3[5]) is the third home video game console produced by Sony Computer Entertainment and the successor to the PlayStation 2 as part of the PlayStation series. The PlayStation 3 competes with Microsoft‘s Xbox 360 and Nintendo‘s Wii as part of the seventh generation of video game consoles. It was first released on November 11, 2006, in Japan,[6] with international markets following shortly thereafter.[7][8][9]. Major features of the console include its unified online gaming service, the PlayStation Network,[10] its multimedia capabilities,[11] connectivity with the PlayStation Portable,[12] and its use of the Blu-ray Disc as its primary storage medium.[13]

 

Sony officially unveiled the PlayStation 3 (then marketed as PLAYSTATION 3[14]) to the public on May 16, 2005 at the E3 2005 conference,[15] along with a ‘boomerang‘ shaped prototype design of the Sixaxis controller.[16] A functional version of the system was not present there,[17] nor at the Tokyo Game Show in September 2005,[18] although demonstrations (such as Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots[17]) were held at both events on software development kits and comparable personal computer hardware.[17][18] Video footage based on the predicted PlayStation 3 specifications was also shown (notably a Final Fantasy VII tech demo).[19] The initial prototype shown in May 2005 featured two HDMI ports, three Ethernet ports and six USB ports;[20] however, when the system was shown again a year later at E3 2006, these were reduced to one HDMI port, one Ethernet port and four USB ports, presumably to cut costs.[21][22] Two hardware configurations were also announced for the console: a 20 GB model and a 60 GB model, priced at US$499 (€499) and US$599 (€599), respectively.[21] The 60 GB model was to be the only configuration to feature an HDMI port, Wi-Fi internet, flash card readers and a chrome trim with the logo in silver.[21] Both models were announced for a simultaneous worldwide release: November 11, 2006 for Japan and November 17, 2006 for North America and Europe.[23]

 

On September 6, 2006, Sony announced that the PAL region PlayStation 3 launch would be delayed until March 2007, due to a shortage of materials used in the Blu-ray drive.[24] At the Tokyo Game Show on September 22, 2006, Sony announced that it would include an HDMI port on the 20 GB system, but a chrome trim, flash card readers, silver logo and Wi-Fi would not be included.[25] Also, the launch price of the Japanese 20 GB model was reduced by over 20%,[26] and the 60 GB model was announced for an open pricing scheme in Japan.[26] During the event, Sony showed 27 playable PS3 games running on final hardware.[27]

Sony PlayStation is one of the best gaming consoles the world has ever seen, and today, it is competing toe to toe, or joystick to joystick, with the Microsoft Xbox. The revolutionary console brought the gaming age to a whole, new different level. Also the design of the joystick has become iconic, all PlayStation consoles having the same model of joystick. New game play, prolonged game time and a vibrating joystick were the characteristics that made the PlayStation the ultimate console in existence.

Sony PlayStation 2 first showed its face in July 2000 and was already competing with the Xbox Arcade and the Nintendo DS. Later on, Sony released a model for PlayStation 2 that was a slim edition, thus making the console look sleek and cool. The emphasis for the PS2 stayed on PlayStation memory cards, that gave the gamer the possibility of saving the game at any time. The PS3 Slim is currently the latest PlayStation for sale and is at war with the Xbox 360 Elite for some years now, these titans are ruling the game markets, fighting for supremacy. It is all about the games and individual preferences.
