LOS ANGELES - Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has announced that it will launch PlayStation3 in North America on November 17, as part of a worldwide simultaneous launch.

PlayStation 3 is a computer system that serves as a platform to enjoy next generation computer entertainment contents in the home. PlayStation 3 was realized through the combination of Cell and RSX processors. PlayStation 3 will support a backwards compatibility of a vast catalog of PlayStation and PlayStation 2 software titles.

Having Giga-bit Ethernet and a pre-installed hard disk drive as standard in PlayStation 3, users will be able to download a variety of contents as well as access on-line games and services over the network.

Equipped with basic input/output ports, PlayStation 3 supports a broad range of displays from conventional NTSC/PAL standard TVs to the latest full HD (1080i/1080p) flat panel displays, offering advanced computer entertainment contents to homes around the world. For use in living rooms, maximum heat and noise reduction has been achieved with a noise level equivalent to that of the current slim-line PlayStation 2.

With the computational power of the Cell processor, PlayStation 3 is capable of playing back content from Blu-ray (BD) disc at a bit rate of multiplex 48Mbps with ease, the maximum bit rate defined in BD standards.

The new controller for PlayStation 3 has been created by refining and improving the world’s most popular PlayStation controller which has shipped more than several hundred million units worldwide. The controller for PS3 employs a high-precision, highly sensitive six-axis sensing system that is capable of processing all parameters within the controller itself, thereby eliminating the need for any additional settings on the display system. By applying this technology, it will become possible to freely control the PlayStation 3 system over the network.

PlayStation 3 will be broken down in to two prices, depending on the desired hard disk drive.  At for a 20GB HDD, the retail price will be $499 ($549 CAN); for a 60GB HDD, the retail price will be $599 ($656 CAN).

While further enhancing the entertainment on PlayStation 2 and PSP (PlayStation Portable) system, SCEA will vigorously promote PlayStation 3 as the next generation computer entertainment platform.
