Do you remember the eve of the PlayStation 3 launch? Feels like just yesterday, but in reality, it was five whole years ago. This week a half-decade ago, gamers were gearing up for the launch of an insanely powerful console, the PS3. It's a pretty important achievement. In fact, the PS2 is still being produced, and Sony has made clear that they're on a 10-year track for the PS3, too. In other words, we're halfway there.



So, PS3 owners -- celebrating with anything special this weekend? Picking up any games to celebrate the halfway point? Let us know in comments.

5 years old and still doing pretty well. The hardware in a ps3 is excellent, games are just starting to catch up to it.

I still play my 60gb at LEAST 8 hours a day, and the old girl's never given me a problem. I love you too, PS3!

Happy birthday PS3! Even though I never bought one of you, you still gave game designers the inspiration to tap into the power of the PS3 to deliver decent games and you still manage to have fans even though two of the members account information got released in the wild...

So, happy birthday PS3; here's to 5 more!

When I say "first" one, I mean the one my EX husband still has, which still works perfectly too.  Mine and my current bf's is going on 3 years old and no problems with it either. As long as nobody messes around with modding and such they are pretty solid machines.

When Sony came out with the PS3 they were ahead of the game (literally, - like mentioned above, some games are just starting to use the PS3's full capabilities), and in my opinion they still are. :)
