Earlier in the year, a lot of fuss was made over the release of the PlayStation 3. The promise of a whole new world of gaming had arrived and the Microsoft Xbox 360 finally had itself a worthy adversary. In our original review of the [[prodid:2677]],...

Excellent online gameplay, Lag Free, Playstation Store uses actual money, The service is free ;

Voice chat is not available across all games, No unified servers, Limited international multiplayer, Games must be exited in order to read messages, Sluggish online store interface ;

In its current state, the PlayStation 3 online service pales in comparison to what is being offered on the rival Xbox 360 console. It needs some improvements, particularly in the area of communication, ease-of-use and community in order to rise to the...

Great graphics, Included Blu-Ray Drive, Enjoyable games

Menu unintuitive in places, Cost

While it will take a swipe at your bank balance, Sony's Playstation 3 is definitely a powerful machine. Offering incredible graphics and the added bonus of a Blu-Ray drive, it is a great console to complete your high definition lounge room setup.

The cut-down PS3 costs the same as the Xbox Elite, has lost of its key features and still has that cracking Blu-ray player

The Sony PlayStation 3 is a revolutionary games console that also happens to be a Blu-ray player. But is it worth $1000?

Stunning design ; speedy ; stunning visuals

Expensive ; not as established as the 360

An ideal introduction to the world of Blu-ray Page: 1 2 3 [4]

Sony PlayStation 3

 

My verdict is to perhaps buy a separate blue ray/dvd player and maybe perhaps an Xbox 360 since its cheaper, and they have pretty much the exact same games.

it looks nice, has great graphics.. I guess.. but its way too expensive.. why isnt there any backward compatability?I traded my ps2 towards this .. why the heck they didnt say something on box

it breaks down fairly easy.. if you use it constantly, so the blue ray function is pointless since if you use 24/7 it wont last long

PS3 will ALWAYS totslly kick Microsoft ar*e, and Nintendo's too.

I got a Blu-Ray before all my friends cos they got blu-ray machiness, and i got a PS3, the graphics are sweet, the sound is awesome, and i love that PS home is free

PS Home costumes, and apartments cost money, cover is bad for fingerprints, the unit heats up quickly, I had to buy a larger HDD after only 3 weeks
