The Playstation 3's Now Officially Three Years Old In Europe.

That's right, the system went on sale in Europe precisely three years ago today - March 23rd.

It's been a bit of a roller-coaster ride for Sony since then, with initial PS3 sales tempered by a high price-tag. It is, however, with the launch of the PS3 Slim that the system has finally caught its break — with a lower price point making the system's line-up of already incredible first-part exclusives driving consumers to the product.

So, if you'll all raise your glasses: happy Birthday PS3. Here's to three more years.
