2007 SONY PLAYSTATION 3
The Sony Playstation (1994) and Playstation 2 (2000) had done just fine as games consoles. But the arrival of the Playstation 3 in 2007 turned the games console into a multimedia hub for kids and home entertainment-savvy adults alike.
For a long time, the most affordable (and one of the best-performing) Blu-ray player on the market, it also packed a hard-drive of up to 500GB capacity and Bluetooth 2.0, and acquired Netflix and Amazon Prime connectivity over time.
It’s just possible that the word ‘convergence’, as it relates to home entertainment, became common currency with the PS3.
