The PlayStation 3 (PS3), developed by Sony, is a multimedia machine that plays games for the original PlayStation and PS3, Blu-ray and DVD movies, and music from MP3s and CDs. The PS3 is tethered by as few wires as possible, with the controllers connected by Bluetooth and the Internet connected via Wi-Fi. The same is true for headsets and headphones, making it easy to keep your gaming session to yourself, all without wires. The steps are the same to connect both headsets and headphones.
