The Play Station 3 has gone through several iterations in its decade-long lifespan, but the current version is relatively trim, measuring 11.4 x 2.4 x 9.1 inches (WHD) and weighing just 4.6 pounds.The console has a plastic chassis with a curved top surface and a combination of glossy and matte finishes.

The Play Station 3 has had more than a decade to amass an enormous library of games, and more than 1,000 titles have been released for the system, including entries in popular franchises like Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto and Mass Effect.

Several well-known game series are exclusive to the console, including Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid, and Ratchet and Clank.

A top-loading optical drive lets you insert and remove games without the worry of a motorized slot that could wear out and leave a system useless.

The optical drive offers read-only support for both Blu-ray and DVD discs, allowing you to use not only PS3 game discs, but also Blu-ray and DVD movies.

Sony still manufactures and sells the PS3, and there are even new games coming out for the system, including compatible versions of The Last of Us, Destiny and Grand Theft Auto V.

These are just major titles with disc-based releases; the system has access to hundreds of other games large and small through the Play Station Network, and that library is still expanding.Having debuted back in 2006, before the advent of the smartphone and before tablets became popular, the Sony Play Station 3 isn’t new.After more than a decade on the market, the Play Station 3 may not offer the glitzy graphics and cutting edge features of current-generation systems, but it’s still a great option if you’re on a budget.Internally, the PS3 uses a proprietary processor and graphics solution, with a Power PC Cell microprocessor (with just 256MB of RAM) and an NVIDIA RSX graphics processing unit.Being 10 years old, these components aren’t necessarily impressive and don’t hold a candle to current generation consoles in terms of graphics capability, but the entire Play Station 3 game library is designed to make the most of it, so you’ll rarely feel its limitations.On top of this, it also supports a variety of media streaming services, with apps for You Tube, Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO GO, Hulu, Vudu and Plex.
