PROCESS THAT: IT PERFORMS 1.8 TRILLION CALCULATIONS PER SECOND
The PLAYSTATION3 system’s Cell Broadband Engine is the very thing that game developers have always dreamt about. Its unique multi-processing unit design represents a tour de force in parallel processing. The ability to do more of everything at the same time means more enemies, more AI, more explosions, and more realistic game play. Game play
that takes into account ragdoll physics and keyframe animation, enemy AI behaving unpredictably, glass cracking
based on the size of the object that impacted it, and individual flecks of dust in a beam of sunlight to create a more
believable and unique experience. The Cell Broadband Engine has the muscle and horsepower to move beyond artificial
intelligence. This is the power that is the digital soul of the PLAYSTATION3 system.

IT DREAMS IN BLU-RAY
Dreams are boundless. Their images are expansive and their colors inspired. Up until now, game developers have
been dreamers cursed to dream with limitations. Forced to compromise their creative content for precious disc space.
Then came the advent of Blu-ray. Just as the DVD offered a technological leap over CDs, the Blu-ray disc is the next
leap forward in the advancement of data storage and high definition entertainment. But not as a simple evolution
of an existing format. Blu-ray is something entirely different, a revolution catapulting the high definition gaming
and movie experience into unknown frontiers. A revolution that finally frees game developers and moviemakers from
the constraints of storage space. And allows them to dream in Blu-ray.

SIXAXIS Wireless Controller: IT SENSES YOUR EVERY MOVE
The power is here. The question is, can you control it? With the PLAYSTATION 3 system’s
Cell Broadband Engine creating experiences that were never before seen as
possible, a controller was needed that would enable your experience to match its
potential. Enter the new SIXAXIS controller. Utilizing sensors designed to read when a player angles, tilts,
thrusts, or pulls, the SIXAXIS controller allows game play to become a natural extension of the player’s body.

the controls they’ve already grown accustomed to while
