Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday Dear PS3!

November 11, 2011 Written by Sebastian Moss

Five years ago on this day, the PlayStation 3 released in Japan, marking Sony’s entry into the next generation.

The PS3’s fifth birthday is on November 17th in the US, and March 23rd 2012 in Europe. We’re all having cake here at PSLS, and have a bunch of great features planned between the Japanese and US birthday to mark the anniversary of the console that this site has covered so extensively.

If you bought a PlayStation 3, when did you upgrade to the black Blu-ray-playing behemoth? Let us know in the comments below.
