PlayStation/PSOne Conceived originally as a new console created through a business partnership between Sony and Nintendo, and later Sony and Sega, the PlayStation is one of the fifth generation consoles and was released in 1995. During 2000, it was replaced by a smaller redesign, named the PSOne, which was to avoid confusion with Sony’s PlayStation 2 console released at that time. It is the first console to use CD format as previous and current generation consoles used cartridges.

PlayStation 3 The PlayStation 3 was released late 2006/early 2007 and replaced the PlayStation 2 as the flagship console from Sony. It is the first console to use Blu-Ray format discs and was also the first PlayStation console to introduce social gaming services, in the form of the PlayStation Network, PSN. In 2009, a revised Slim model was released which boasted more efficient power consumption and a quieter cooling fan. This was followed by the Super Slim model in 2012. The PlayStation 3 was the first console in the PlayStation series to introduce the use of motion-sensing technology through its Sixaxis wireless controller. The PlayStation 3 was originally offered with either a 20 GB or 60 GB hard drive, but over the years its capacity increased and the Super Slim model offered 500 GB storage.
