The PLAYSTATION 3 (PS3) looks even better than the artistic mock-ups we've seen. With wireless controllers, WiFi and broadband connectivity, hard-drive support and an incredibly fast cell processor, the PS3 is more machine than we could have dreamed for. While the PS3's specifications and design may change between now and the Spring 2006 release date, rumors have it that they will only get better.

The PLAYSTATION 3 is a magnificent machine, both elegant and futuristic. Though the PS3 could change before Spring of 2006, the design will likely remain the same, due to critical praise and expediency in manufacturing.
