PlayStation 3 is the 7th generation console from Sony. It was released on November 17th, 2006 in North America and March 23rd, 2007 in Europe. PS3 came about a year later than its biggest rival � Xbox 360 from Microsoft � so it didn�t manage to conquer the market as PlayStation 2 had done a couple of years earlier. Also, complicated architecture of the console � based on the Cell CPU which became a pain in the neck for game developers � made it harder to achieve great sales results. PlayStation 3 was succeeded by PlayStation 4 in 2013.
