While some may folks may disagree, there is no denying that the PlayStation 3, while captivating the imagination of millions around the world, has had more than its fair share of setbacks and delays thus far. Originally scheduled to launch in Spring 2006, Sony officially announced the PlayStation 3 at E3 in May of 2005. At the time, Sony’s Ken Kutaragi touted the power of the Cell processor and the NVIDIA based RSX “Reality Synthesizer” graphics processor, calling the PS3 a "supercomputer for computer entertainment." Sony promised features such as dual HDMI outputs for an extra widescreen dual display 32:9, backwards compatibility for over 13,000 PS & PS2 titles, a new boomerang shaped controller and an army of developers with exclusive content for the PS3. A mix of real-time and pre-rendered demos were also shown to demonstrate the power of the PlayStation 3.
