    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # 94765 )

    Hundreds of games – from the new hotness to classics – plus trophies, online gaming, and exclusive downloads
    Hundreds of the games you want
    The list of games for the PlayStation®3 system is growing daily. The PS3™ system delivers the goods from some of the industry's hottest franchises, like SOCOM, to the most anticipated games of the year, like God of War® III. Whatever you want to play, chances are the PS3™ game library has it.
    Digital games
    Download exclusive games directly from the PlayStation®Store and meet up millions of members to play online multiplayer games. Get access to free demos and add-ons and dominate the competition to collect game trophies. Or take a minute to explore PlayStation®Home, an interactive virtual gaming platform where you can build yourself a sweet-looking avatar and join and launch games online.
    Greatest Hits
    Get the most popular and best selling games for the PS3™ system at a reduced price in our Greatest Hits section. Awesome games like Soulcalibur® IV and LEGO® Batman™ don't fade away. They become Greatest Hits.
    Welcome to the next generation of gaming
    The PS3™ system was the first to use the Cell Broadband Engine™, an advanced microprocessor that lets your PS3™ system work at incredibly fast speeds to give you the best possible gaming and viewing experience.

    In addition to the advanced processor at its heart, the PS3™ has a built in High Definition Blu-ray™ player and enormous hard disk drive (HDD) storage. That means you can store mammoth amounts of games and media on your machine and you can watch HD movies in all their glory.
    Show off the spoils of victory
    Let 'em know who they're up against
    With PlayStation®Trophies, you don't need to brag. Your trophy case does that for you.
    Earn trophies
    There are four types of trophies: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. You receive one every time you beat a level or beat up enough bad guys. As you play, you earn different trophies until you've collected all the trophies available for that game and are awarded the shiniest of all the trophies: the platinum. Your entire trophy collection is combined to determine your level.
    Trophy collection
    Your Trophy Collection (under Games on the XMB™) shows what trophies you've earned and which ones you still need to unlock, game by game. You can click through to get full details on each trophy's requirements.
    PSN profile
    See your trophies and more on your PSN profile. Your profile displays recent trophies, total trophies, as well as your overall level. It also shows you exactly how far you have to go before you reach the next level. Just think of it as motivational; if you ever manage to sneak away from your PlayStation®3 system for any length of time, you'll always have that one last missing trophy to get you back to gaming where you belong.
    XMB™ In-Game
    Change things up on the fly
    The glory of pausing
    Say you're playing a game and you need to do something. Send a message, change the music, locate an M&M that has disappeared somewhere on your person, whatever. Don't quit - just press the PS button and use the XMB™ to pause the action.
    Talking with friends or other players in the middle of a game is easy. Chat by text or use your headset to voice chat. You can also add new friends or check other player's profiles (including their Trophy collections) to know who you're up against while you're playing.
    Want to jump into an online game? You can change your Bluetooth settings in the middle of a game so you can use your headset to play online. And adjusting other settings without leaving game-play is just as easy.
    Trophy collection
    Check out your Trophy Collection to see what you've earned to date, or take a look at the challenges you might want to tackle next. This can come in handy during long quests or battles. Go back and look at those shiny pixels of platinum you're fighting for. Getting more trophies than your friends is the best way to prove your gaming domination.

    Store all your music, videos and photos in one place for easy viewing and sharing
    CDs, digital music, surround sound. It's all here.
    The PlayStation®3 system gives you a lot ways to play your music. You can always listen to your CDs with the built-in CD/DVD drive, but the huge storage of the PlayStation®3 system means you can also save your digital music, organize it into playlists, and listen while you play games or watch photo slideshows. If you're anything like us, you have a gigantic music collection. Make the most of it with 7.1 surround sound.
    Music saved to a USB device
    If you've got a compatible USB device, like a digital player or storage device, just plug it directly into your PlayStation®3 system to listen or watch what's inside. You can save the music to your PlayStation®3's system hard disk drive (HDD), or just listen and remove the device when you're done.1
    Music saved to the HDD
    We made the HDD big for a reason, so you have room left over for your entire music collection after you've filled your PlayStation®3 system up with games, photos and videos.
    Album details
    If you want to get more info about an album, like the title, artist or how long the album is, just connect to the Internet2 via your PS3™ system's browser.
    Of course you can create playlists. One to play with the slideshow of baby pictures that gives your mom warm fuzzies on Mother's Day, another for the party at your friend's house that night.
    Watch while you listen
    The Visual Player makes those hypnotic swirls and shapes that match your music. You can customize it to your liking and stare at it for hours. Or if you want to look at something a little less swirly, just make a playlist that plays along to your pics and slideshows.
    7.1 surround sound
    There's no point in playing music unless it sounds good, so experience it all in full 7.1 surround sound.3
    Music Unlimited

    Access at your fingertips
    Access your world from your PlayStation®3 system
    It seems silly to scatter our electronic lives across a hundred different systems – music on our iPods, games on our PlayStation®s, photos on our computers, and then we're stuck streaming Netflix movies on our tiny laptop screens. Wasn't technology supposed to make things easier? That's why the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA®) magically connects your entire life – access your photos, music, personal videos, or your computer from a PlayStation®3 system.
    DLNA & the PlayStation®3 system
    DLNA is a global collaboration of hundreds of the most trusted brands, all working together to help make computers, gaming systems, and mobile and electronic devices work together seamlessly. The PlayStation®3 system is DLNA Certified, which means it can share and exchange media with other DLNA-compatible digital devices like computers, digital video recorders and TVs. So you can stream media content from a DLNA-enabled device right to your PlayStation®3 system. Find out more about DLNA at www.dlna.org.
    Remote Play
    PSP® and PlayStation®3 systems play nice together
    Access to the ultimate home entertainment system from just about anywhere
    Remote Play lets you access your PlayStation®3 system with your PSP® system via a wireless Internet connection. That means you can access media files on your home console –music, videos, pictures– from your PSP®system. The PSP® system can even fire up your PlayStation®3 system remotely from stand-by mode with Remote Start. And when Remote Play is combined with DLNA®, you can use your PSP® system to access media files stored on your home computer.

    Protect your kids

    Parenting when you're not in the room
    The PlayStation®3 system offers security settings to make your job as a parent easier. Restrict what your kids watch or play using rating systems like the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) rating system for games, and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) ratings for movies. Once the Parental Controls are set, the PlayStation®3 system will only allow authorized games, movie or audio content to be played. And the Parental Control settings can only be changed with the system password, which only you will know.
    Parental Controls
    The PS3™ system's Parental Controls allow parents to restrict access to local content from a variety of sources including:

    • Games
    • Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) movies
    • DVD movies
    • Other locally saved content that supports parental control
    Internet Browser Start Control
    You can also restrict Internet use with an Internet Browser Start Control. This control makes the PS3™ system's Internet browser password protected, so only you can get online.
    Trend Micro Web Security
    Trend Micro Web Security for the PS3™ system is a service which blocks harmful, fraudulent and malicious sites on the Internet, especially those that are inappropriate for your kids and family.¹
    Parental Controls
    Your kids won't be able to access certain downloads from the PlayStation®Store if you restrict them to a particular level in a game or movie rating system. Demos, previews, and videos for mature audiences just won't be available. You can also keep track of what they can or cannot buy or rent, including TV series, movies and games.
