Sony's PlayStation 3Once the holiday buying frenzy died down, we finally procured a Sony PlayStation 3. As we did with Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Nintendo's Wii, we plan to crack open the PS3 and explore the hardware that makes Sony's new console run. Before breaking out the screwdrivers and plyers, the CNET Louisville staff took the PS3 for a test drive--just in case I couldn't put it back together again.
