Wikipedia has an article on: PlayStation 3

The PlayStation 3, (stylized as PLAYSTATION 3), or PS3, is a gaming console created by Sony Corporation. It is the successor of the PlayStation 2, and the predecessor of the PlayStation 4. It is in direct competition with the Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. The PS3 was released on November 11, 2006, in Japan, and November 17, 2006, in North America.

It features a hard drive (12GB, 20GB, 40GB, 60GB, 80GB, 120GB, 160GB, 250GB, 320GB, or 500GB depending on the model), much improved CPU, easy hard drive expansion, high definition graphics, advanced online gaming capabilities, blu-ray media, wireless "SIXAXIS" or "DUALSHOCK 3" controllers, interaction with a PlayStation Portable (PSP) system through Wi-Fi and much more. It is also the only 7th generation console to offer region-free games.

Dan Houser stated during an IGN interview that the reason Grand Theft Auto V was released on the PS3 and Xbox 360 instead of releasing it on (current at the time) 8th gen consoles, is because they believed that these platforms still held a large amount of power and capability in them.
