Playstation 3

 

As the long wait for the much-anticipated PlayStation 3 game console dragged on, gamers started to joke that Sony stood for Soon, Only Not Yet.

Great graphics, Included Blu-Ray Drive, Enjoyable games ;

Menu unintuitive in places, Cost ;

At the heart of the PlayStation 3 lies a CPU that'll impress even the most hardcore PC gamer. This powerful, multicore Cell processor, jointly developed by Sony, Toshiba, and IBM, runs at 3.2 GHz. An RSX Reality Synthesizer graphics engine, based on...

Sony PlayStation 3 review: Sony PlayStation 3

 

Sony PlayStation 3

Swanky design with quiet operation; all games in high-definition; PSP-like, easy-to-use interface; plays Profile 2.0 high-definition Blu-ray movies in addition to upscaling standard DVDs; built-in Wi-Fi; 80GB hard drive; HDMI output with 1080p support;...

Lacks full backward support for PS2 games; only comes with two USB ports; no infrared port means non-Bluetooth universal remotes aren't compatible; no flash card or memory reader; glossy black finish is a fingerprint magnet; online gaming, media, and...

Even though PS2 backward compatibility has been dropped from this version, the 80GB PS3 is still a superb Blu-ray player and high-definition game console.

Best console currently on the market

 

I love my PS3. It plays the best games on the market, and it doubles as a Blu-ray player. It will fit nicely on most TV cabinets as you can sit it in either the vertical or horizontal position. The PS4 is expected on the market in late 2013 but this is...

Lots of games, inexpensive, doubles as a Blu-ray player.

The on/off button is difficult to use. Can be quite noisy.

the loading of disc ,no tray to give problems,,no mechanism to fail when loading disc,,runs cooler,,nice style

so far the only fault it may have is the door for disc loading,,it is a sliding setup and in time may begin to wear or jam

sony disappoints

 

started with a hiss and a roar but that was short lived...this unit didn't really have a lot of hours usage in the time it was used. It came as an accessory to our Sony TV. and its appeal to us was the blueray player and ability as a games console for...

Games were good , blueray worked fine once you figured it out...!

Set-ups were time consuming and sometimes frustrating but it didn't deliver a reasonable return for the cost of the unit considering all the hype It's poor value
