PlayStation 3 Turns Five Today in Europe

Posted on March 23, 2012 AT 06:20am

THE BUZZ: The PlayStation 3 has turned five years old today in Europe.

The console launched in the U.K. on March 23 2007, alongside a number of launch titles including Resistance: Fall of Man, Virtua Fighter 5, Ridge Racer 7 and many more.

The console retailed for £425 at launch and managed to shift around 600,000 copies in the first two days across Europe.

EGM’s TAKE: Five years is a long time for a console generation, but with Sony touting a ten year plan we may only be at the half way stage. Just how much more does the PlayStation 3 have to give? Are developers already pushing its limits? Only time will tell.

What has been your favorite PlayStation 3 title since launch? Let us know in the comments below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
