PS3 Celebrates Fifth Birthday in the US

November 17, 2011 Written by Sebastian Moss

It’s amazing to think that only 5 years ago one of the greatest consoles ever made released in the US. On November 17th 2006, Sony’s most powerful console to date was finally available to purchase in North America after an E3 reveal over a year before.

With a high price point, and several game delays, some analysts and developers even went as far as to declare the console a failure, but Sony persevered, and the PS3 is now neck-and-neck with the 360, which released a year earlier. Here at PSLS, we’re going to celebrate the birthday in style, and have something special planned to show the PlayStation 3′s life to date coming later today, along with some other celebration features.
