Games

Some games have a very fast computer system and the system requirements are becoming heavier. An average (new) game for the PC costs about € 45-50, for the Wii and approximately € 40-50 for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 around € 50-60. Because a linear game averaging around 15-20 hours has gameplay, gaming is considered a relatively expensive hobby. But many games are about 6 months after the issue price reduced slowly, usually to the point of € 10 or € 20 games with an online opportunity often have a much longer game.

Through various gaming sites can be played online Flash games. These games are usually free. They are played through a web browser with the Adobe Flash plug-in. That plug-in ensures that special Flash files can be played.

The launch was postponed in the PAL territories, because there was a delay in the mass production of a component of the Blu-ray player.

In the beginning there were two different configurations, which differed in terms of price and features. There was one with a hard drive of 40 GB without backward compatibility and one with a hard drive of 60GB or with backward compatibility. The 60 GB version also still had a SD / MMC card, CompactFlash / Microdrive and Memory Stick card reader and four USB ports instead of 2 at the 40 GB version.

In late 2007 it was announced that no new 60GB version more would be produced, which disappeared backward compatibility. In 2008 there was a 80 GB version of [4] and later that year a version with 160 GB hard drive. In 2009 was followed by versions with hard drives of 120 and 250 gigabytes. In July 2010, Sony released another two new slim versions of 160 and 320 gigabytes respectively. The 320-gigabyte model came with a Move starter kit.
