PlayStation 3 120GB System
i would recomend this to any one that is looking to buy a ps3 it dosent over heat like the other ps3 consoles because it has a smaller hard drive in side the smaller version. and you will save $100-$200 then waisting your money on the larger version of the ps3 console that has smaller amount of GB'S and wich the smaller version of the ps3 has 120 GBs alot more memory for alot smaller system!XD
Sony Playstation 3 Slim Version 120GB
I recently purchased a Sony Playstation 3 Slim Version 120GB at Gamestop. Before then, I have had a Wii, Playstation 2, DS, and a Gameboy. Out of all of those systems, the Playstation 3 is the best. The graphics are crystal clear. The function is the best. The design is the best out of all other systems invented. The Sony Playstation 3 is worth your money. In the past month, I have not had any problems with the system. I take good care of the system and take breaks after an hour and a half of gameplay. Over the past years, people have been debating over to get an Xbox 360 or the Sony Playstation 3. If you have been playing the original Xbox, I recommend you buy the 360 because you are already use to the controls and functionality of Microsoft products. If you have original been playing a Sony Playstation 1 or 2, I recommend getting a Sony Playstation 3 for the same reason. There is no need to have war over systems. I would definally recommend other Sony users to buy a Playstation 3.
BEST GAMING CONSOLE IN HISTORY OF EARTH!
First of all, I'd like to tell you about the graphics: As you probably already know, THEY'RE OUTRAGIOUSLY GREAT! Comparing the PS3's quality to ANY other console (besides the Xbox 360 thats not half bad) Its miles away on the racetrack. I would tell you about the price, but appearantly Gamestop dosn't allow us to talk about that. So next up: Functionality. Don't play the PS3 long enough to let it heat up and burn (trust me I have done this many times and it didn't come to a very good outcome). After overheating it you will end up getting a message that might cause you to have a heart-attack. (I can't remember what it said exactly because im taking alot better care of my PS3 now). But I think it said something like this: SYSTEM RECOVERY. Because of you overheating it you now have to wait about 5 to 10 minutes. This gaming console is not reccomended for people that have anger issues because the PS3 is very delicate. I hope you enjoyed this review and I hope it helps with your decision. Good luck!
A great system that is starting to catch up.
The PS3 is definitely the best console Sony has put out (although it should be), and can do many different things. The PS3 Slim looks better than the original, uses less power and is smaller, gets rid of the power switch on the back and the touch-sensetive buttons. It also plays CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays. As far as the games go you have the PS1 backwards compatibility, the PS3 games, and any downloadable games on the PlayStation Network. You can also buy/rent movies, TV shows, game demos, game media, among other things. The DualShock 3 may very well be the best controller ever made, feels lighter than the DualShock 2, with better buttons and the rumble is perfect. The Sixaxis works well in Uncharted and Ratchet & Clank but those are the only two I've tried it with. Overall, this console is definitely a great one and could become one of the best of all time.
It only does everything.
Let me start off by saying: this is the BEST console on the market right now. I have had my PS3 since Christmas 2009 and I have been beyond amazed. I have this Slim version and it hasn't overheated once on me and I play continuously (sometimes for 12-hour gaming sessions). The controller feels great in my hands and is light and compact plus you don't have to deal with annoying batteries; you can just plug the controller into the PS3 and it will charge even while you're playing a game. On top of that the PS3 has AMAZING exclusives such as Killzone or Uncharted. Even better the online component (PlayStation Network) is absolutely FREE! There are monthly patches for the PS3 further improving it's performance. If you are a hardcore gamer, then you must keep up with gaming news. The PS3 was critically acclaimed at E3 2010 for it's high performance with great exclusives. The Blu-Ray player on the PS3 is flawless and the Blu-Ray games never get scratched. Also, there are a variety of games to play. To me, the PS3 is the best ever. Whether you're a casual gamer, core gamer, hardcore gamer, or a Blu-Ray viewer, the PS3 is the game system is for you. I think Kevin Butler was right when he said: "It only does everything."
great system, aside from no ps2 backward compatabi
i bought this system brand new back when they first came out with slims, at the time i didnt know they couldnt play ps2 games, spent hours playing games and downloading things, paying ps1 games, listening to music, watching movies, etc. it has never given me any trouble, never had ylod or anything, but extremely bummed my 300 bucks (thats what it costed for a 120 gb console at the time) didnt allow me to play ps2 games too, but not too long ago they started making ps2 collections on discs and putting ps2 games for download on psn so in a way, now you can play SOME ps2 games, a very slim selection, if you got the right copy of twisted metal, you can download twisted metal black, and psn has games like the god of war, devil may cry, and jak and daxter series available for hd download, while they have games like bloodrayne, maximo ghosts to glory and some others for download as original ps2 games. maybe eventually theyll upload all ps2 games for availability.
Went beyond all my expectations
I was wary about buying a PS3 last year because it cost so much and so many people gave it a negative feed back.... Then I bought Xbox360 which got a red ring and Wii which was boring. I have to say out of all 3, the PS3 is the king. Let's think about all the + sides -Great Online Games (FREE unlike Xbox) -Internet Browser -Remoteplay (was especially impressed by this feature) -Can use any bluetooth mikes -Blu-ray -Tons of newly released games for PS3 -Can detect any PC wirelessly if it's using the same IP (which allows me to access a lot of stuff from my PC on my PSP!!) -Printer (but who would use this) -Mature kids play w/ PS3 (I swear, they're much better than the kids who play Xbox360) -No power-brick -Also noticed there's not as much lag online -Can play downloaded games on PSP I recommend getting this PS3 to EVERYONE. I swear, I worked so hard to get this PS3 'cause it's sold out EVERYWHERE. The only thing I didn't like is the fact that they took out touch sensitive buttons
The PS3 is amazing. The 360 is no match for PS3. I have both systems because I'm from a family of 5 kids and 2 parents (Plus two dogs).So it's easy to compare. Anyway, everyone knows the fact that Xbox LIVE cost money and PSN doesn't for the same features.It's one of the biggest diffirences. That is what everyone thinks of when Xbox LIVE is mentioned (I think of how many diffirent video games we could've bought). This is my opinon, but the PS3 has way better exclusives. Uncharted 1 and 2,Little big Planet, all the Rachet and Clanks,MAG,the Gran Turismos, plus many more and the road up ahead. And lets not forget the features offline! The PS3 has Blu-Ray (Plus DVD's and CD's), it can hold music(you can put music to your PS3 from your ipod!),photos,demos,and more. Okay now for the 360's features. It can play movies, you can have wi-fi if you have the adapter for like 80 bucks (for the slim there is built in wi-fi),so all that I'm saying is if you are thinking about getting the Sony PS3 Or 360 elite (thats what i have),get the PS3. P.S My PSN ID is livinglife10
Regular vs. Slim
Ok, when I recently considered buying a PS3 I didn't know which system I should go for.The original (fat) or the slim?I ultimately decided on the Slim.I have to say, I am thrilled! Many friends have the original PS3 and always complain about it overheating or using too much energy.Not the Slim. It stays relatively cool and it uses half as much electricity as the original.Another thing that makes the Slim better than the original is the fact that it has a 120GB hard drive (better than the 80GB on the original). Some of you may think that you don't need all that space, but eventually with all the demos, videos, music, and pictures you put in there it will fill up.You need all the space you can get.As for the looks: From the pictures the PS3 Slim looks grayish and pale. But it actually looks darker than the original. i like the black on the slim better because it nicer from far away.It's low-profile and I actually think it looks better than the Original (no weird fingerprints on the shiny surface).
What I expect
Sony made a great system n Xbox has better things like online play with friends but that is it. I have heard people say exclusive that were better on xbox 360 but i played ps3 ones n they are great. Reviews proved it as well. Everything about the system calls greatness. Theres no equal on graphics its wii style motion is a much improved verison there variety of type of games n the internet use n all around is great. People may disagree n thats there choice but facts dont lie. Sony will have gears of war n left for dead on its system soon. The compnay said they were sorry to sony on rash judgement n will correct a mistake. Halo n Fable will soon be the only Xbox 360 exclusive. Also there is talk already of ps4 n nintendo is already talking of a new system. Xbox is done becuase talk has drop about the future of. Microsoft is done with it n slowly walking away. U want a system with future n is great all around go with ps3
