      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not read discs Purchased this as a Christmas gift for my roommate since their ps2 broke and they wanted a backwards compatible ps3, when they went to set it up and insert a disc they system is refused it. The ps3 was also not wiped properly as it still had the old user information!

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best System in Gen 7 You can't beat backwards compatibility even if you have the original systems because the PS1 and PS2 games just look better on the PS3, plain and simple. There's a few things the PS3 did right in the 7th generation of gaming and a few to list is 1) the built-in blu-ray player. It's something the other consoles of last gen (Xbox 360, Wii) didn't have. Because of the blu-ray compatibility it makes the DVD's you have look great and they make the game discs built to last. 2) Free online gaming. That's right, PSN is free so you don't need to pay to play with friends or others. But most importantly to me is 3) the first-party developed games. God of War, Uncharted, Sly Cooper, and Killzone are all fantastic games and a wide variety of genres, not to mention the other franchises I didn't list that were exclusive to the system that really added to the playing field. There's something for everyone with this system ranging from fighters, racing, first person shooters, third person shooters, platformers, just about everything you could feel like playing. It is important to note however if the selling point of the system to you is the backwards compatibility that its only available for the 20gb & 60gb models. The PS4 has been out awhile now as well, and if you haven't had a PS3 yet I suggest owning one before the PS4 as there are tons of great content already available to this system so there's no need to feel like you need to pre-order a game just to find out the game isn't as good as the ads made them look.

      Rated 2 out of 5 by from Partially Works I would have rated this a 10 but mine seems to have a hard drive issue. Any PS3 game that requires installation doesn't work, instead when I try to play them the PS3 shuts off and I get a blinking red light. The only PS3 game that works is COD WAW (which doesn't need to install). Blu-ray movies, DVDs, PS2, and Original PS games work fine though. I thought these are tested and guaranteed to work? I guess I'll take it back and wait another week for another one.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but only for certain people... I bought this to be mainly my replacment ps2 with some ps3 features, it works great and can play all of my ps2 games asides from "genesis collection" without a issue. If ou plan on playing mainly ps3 games then I'd recomend buying the 60gb ps3 due to most games being 4-5gb's now and that will eat up your harddrive fast... My advice is buy this if you plan on mainly playing ps2 games with a few ps3 games. Buy a 60gb if you plan on playing a lot of ps3 with alot of ps2 games. Buy a 80gb 4-port if you mainly will play ps3 games (80's don't play ps2 aswell as 20/60's) or buy a new ps3 super slim if you only want to play ps3 games due to the fact these have some serious overheating issues that the newer models don't have.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome system You can make this wireless less then $30, I have a 1TB internal hard drive and added a 10 port USB. With little money this thing is awesome.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just simply magnificent I just got my ps3 recently (after my xbox 360 elite got red rings) and I find it tons better then the xbox 360, and I can honestly say that without being biased because I have both. If you buy It new In-store it comes with the WIFI which I was excited about and my xbox 360 elite didn't even have Wifi.( I payed 300+ dollars for the 360 elite) Not to mention the playstation network is FREE compaired to xbox 360 forcing you to pay money monthly, ( get xbox 360 live year subscription and then add that with all the bills...Trust me It adds up faster then you would think.) My ps3 runs perfectly and I've never had a problems with it besides the occasional game freezing when the console gets exceedingly hot. I would recommend the ps3 to anyone.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its alright but its durable in my opinion Its a great console but it's behind in many ways from its newer younger brothers(the 40, 60, and 80GB PS3[not counting the newer slim models]) I bought this console a week after it came out and it finally broke just last year. It couldve lasted alot longer if i took better care of it. I think i broke it by turning it off while it was saving so it was my fault. It does not have wi-fi, remote play, and it is really small HDD wise. I often found it difficult to play all my games without deleting any other installed games. It lasted for 6 years and almost 7. This is a durable console but if youre a player who likes playing online, i dont recommend to get this because it doesnt have wi-fi but if you already have this colsole, i suggest you to just get the slim or just wait till it breakes and buy an upgrade/
