True Or False Quiz: How Well Do You Remember The PlayStation 3?

We're nearing the end of the PS4 generation, but how well can you remember its predecessor?

Sony officially unveiled the PS3 to the public at E3 2005. Hardcore fans will remember that the system didn't quite resemble the one that launched a year later; with the boomerang controller being the most obvious alteration.

Then the system was priced at $599, in one of the most ill-sighted moves in gaming history. Couple that with a very soft launch line-up, and you have a system that didn't appeal to enough people. That's not to say the machine didn't sell well at launch, but it just didn't have the same initial appeal as the cheaper Xbox 360.

The rocky launch forced Sony to eat some humble pie, which was the best possible thing for everyone involved. This resulted in Sony producing fantastic exclusive games, as well as spotlighting incredible indie titles like Journey and The Unfinished Swan.

This was a mantra that carried Sony through the generation and resulted in the epic reveal of the PS4, but today we want to take a walk back to the PS3 generation and test your knowledge of Sony's wonderful but controversial machine.
