Discover a whole new world of High Definition gaming and entertainment with Blu-ray Disc and experience movies like never before.
Blu-ray Disc is the new standard of home entertainment, with each disc holding up to five times more information than a Standard Definition DVD. That means Blu-ray Disc can store High Definition digital video, sound, pictures, PC files and stunning games such as Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which a normal DVD simply couldn't do.
Experience the ultimate in picture quality
Remember the first time you watched a DVD and saw how the picture looked fantastic compared to those of an ordinary television transmission? That's because DVD uses a higher bit rate than conventional TV broadcasts, meaning better picture and sound quality.
Blu-ray Disc works just like a DVD, only more powerful, meaning you get better picture quality than High Definition TV transmission. And with the option of a 24-frame output, you can experience movies and games on your PlayStation 3 like never before.
High Definition sound
Experiencing High Definition is about the audio as much as the about picture. With Blu-ray Disc you get HD sound and a complete recreation of the original master recording. Now, thanks to the capabilities of Blu-ray Disc, that sound can be delivered straight to your living room when you're playing your favourite game or watching the latest blockbuster film.
This digital multi-channel sound is an integral part of the experience too - imagine playing a game or watching a movie without any of the bangs, crashes, rumbles and other effects that literally shake you in your seat. With HD sound you feel like you are part of the action.
Blu-ray Disc truly is the only way to experience the very best in home entertainment, be it movies or games, and with PlayStation 3, you get the best of both worlds, a entertainment system that delivers next generation gaming thrills and High Definition blockbuster entertainment right into your front room.
Immerse yourself in new worlds with the upcoming virtual reality system in development for PlayStation 4.
