That's nuts how quick it's progressing I remember witnessing the loading screen times after initial startup on PS3 being so quick my mind was blown.
I came across something interesting yesterday about the PS3.
ASCI Red a Supercomputer built in 1996 costing $55 million to build was surpassed in power in 2006 by the Playstation 3.

A little background of ASCI Red:

“The ASCI Red, the first product of the U.S. government’s Accelerated Strategic Computing Initiative, was the world’s fastest supercomputer when it was introduced in 1996. It cost $55 million to develop and its one hundred cabinets occupied nearly 1,600 square feet of floor space (80 percent of a tennis court)…Designed for calculation-intensive tasks like simulating nuclear tests, ASCI Red was the first computer to score above one teraflop—one trillion floating point operations per second—on the standard benchmark test for computer speed.”
