PlayStation 3 is the 7th generation console from Sony. It was released on November 17th, 2006 in North America and March 23rd, 2007 in Europe. PS3 came about a year later than its biggest rival – Xbox 360 from Microsoft – so it didn’t manage to conquer the market as PlayStation 2 had done a couple of years earlier. Also, complicated architecture of the console – based on the Cell CPU which became a pain in the neck for game developers – made it harder to achieve great sales results. PlayStation 3 was succeeded by PlayStation 4 in 2013.

Racing 06 December 2013

Another installment in the popular Gran Turismo racing series. It is an extensive racing simulator developed by Kazunori Yamauchi and Polyphony Digital. The creators aimed to increase the level of realism in this installment, diversifying the experience through the addition of new game modes as well. The game features over 1200 faithfully recreated car models representing different classes. Gran Turismo 6 features racing tracks from the previous installment (including DLCs) and seven new ones - among them the famous Silverstone Circuit in Great Britain. The creators introduced several significant changes to the driving physics, which allowed them to recreate car aerodynamics and both the work of wheels and suspension more faithfully.

The fourth chapter of the adventures of Kratos, the Spartan warrior-gone-god. The title is a prequel to the God of War trilogy.

Despite the madness and tortures, he doesn’t abandon his hopes for revenge. Once he manages to escape, he can start his bloody revenge on the gods of the Olympus. The developers from Sony Santa Monica remained faithful to the gameplay mechanics based mostly on spectacular battles with powerful (and frequently gigantic) enemies.

The fifth installment in the PlayStation racing game series by Polyphony Digital. Gran Turismo 5 has all the crucial features of its predecessors plus a realistic but a very user-friendly driving system and cutting-edge graphics, worthy of the newest generation of Sony consoles. The game's most important element is still the complex career mode, in which you, as the driver, unlock the more difficult challenges, new cars, and special features of the game by achieving victories and climbing up the success ladder. Gran Turismo 5 features over 1000 licensed cars, divided into two categories—the cars known from the previous parts of the franchise, and new vehicles. You can also customize your car by applying visual and engine tune-ups, and drive it on 70 tracks located all over the world, such as Nürburgring and the Monza Circuit.

Adventure 05 October 2010

A third-person perspective action-adventure game developed by Ninja Theory. The game is a modern adaptation of one of the most famous classics of Chinese literature, the epic Journey to the West. The action of the game takes place in the 22nd century, after the third and fourth World War. During the gameplay, we assume the role of a lone man called Monkey, who gets imprisoned by the machines ruling the world. He manages to escape along with a young woman called Trip. After the escape, the duo is forced to rely only on themselves. Although in the beginning they cannot stand each other, over time they establish a specific relationship. In Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, we fight with pursuing machines and solve puzzles, while the protagonist duo complements each other. Monkey specializes mainly in fighting, while Trip is useful in situations requiring cleverness and intelligence. She can also hack computers and squeeze through narrow passages, which are impassable for her companion.
