The PS3 the ultimate home device

Tags : 

If you have been a gamer or computer user for any length of time, then like me you would have seen PlayStation technology go through many changes and releases over the years. The PS3 is as exciting as any PlayStation has ever been. In fact, the new PS3 is not just a gaming device but it is an all around entertainment device for the home. Not only can you play a host of interactive, multiplayer video games on it, you can also watch movies on it, chat with friends (even video chat), play music, display digital photos on a slideshow and more. The Sony PlayStation has truly evolved.

The PS3 and other PlayStation devices were originally developed for gamers. They had solely a video gaming focus and they were good at what they did. Over the years however, they have developed to include other types of entertainment as well. Now they don’t just appeal to one or two members of the family but to every single member of the family. They are now entertainment units that the whole family can enjoy.

PlayStation devices plug into a normal television and they use the TV screen as the monitor for the games that are played. Many people like using the new PS3 with high definition televisions for the powerful impact of the visuals. The PS3 is able to play movies both on DVD and on Blu-ray which means crystal clear, extremely high definition move watching for those that own HD TVs. Blu-ray technology allows for some of the highest quality picture quality in existence. It is clear that the PS3 has been designed to be an all around multimedia center and so far, it seems to be succeeding at that.

For further family entertainment, the PS3 allows you to display photos on a continuous slideshow. When games are not being played on your PS3 device or movies watched, it is nice to let family photos appear on the TV screen in slideshow mode. It can be a way of lifting your spirits while doing housework or while relaxing with music. Additionally, the PS3 lets you play your digital music files to provide the perfect backdrop for any occasion.

These days, most video games come with a government rating to indicate the age groups that they are appropriate for. With the PS3, not only do games come with ratings, there are several options in parental controls within the device as well. This means that conscientious parents can help prevent their children stumbling across dodgy content. The natural curiosity of children means that if it can be found using PS3, they will find it. Safeguards such as these make the PS3 a safe, exciting entertainment option for any family.

Ever since Microsoft released Windows 10 – which was, astonishingly, all the way back in mid-2015 – the company has resisted the urge to shift to Windows 11, or indeed any other full “update” to Windows over that time.

Samsung recently sent me one of its lower-cost SSD drives, the Samsung SSD 980 NVMe M.2 to test out. Drives like this one are designed for PC builders and upgraders looking to eke out as much performance from their PCs as possible, but I was curious to see what kind of impact it might have
