More than just a game console, the gaggle of logos along the PlayStation 3's side--Blu-ray, DVD video, SACD, CD, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital, DTS, Bluetooth, and HDMI--are a testament to the device's enormous versatility.
While it looks identical to the PS2's controller, the PS3's so-called SixAxis controller has a few secrets: it's wireless, and it has some motion-sensing capabilities and a built-in rechargeable battery. But rumble support is a thing of the past.
The included cables (left to right) are: Ethernet (if you don't want to take advantage of the wireless networking), a standard power cord, a standard USB cable (for recharging the controller), and a composite A/V adapter. It's up to you to supply an HDMI cable.
