Playstation 3 250GB System
Best system Ever!
Well I got the ps3 250 gigibite system for christmas and was utterly amazed. This system totally beats other ps3s and xbox 360s by a mile. The graphics are stunning and this is really great when playing games like modern warfare 2. I love the new slim version it takes up less room than the fat one and however many thing you download from playstation network you still have like a ton of space left for more. I know the sound is great but all systems are but the performance is great it never freezes or lags it runs smoothley online so no losing connection in md- game. THis system is a great leap from others and should be reccomended to anyone looking for a great system. And yes the price may seem high but once you play you will not regret it. Many say that it takes this system like 10 more seconds to load well this is false i usually get online and in the game quicker than my friend do and none should believe that lie. I could go on and on about this great system but just get it and see for your self
ps3 is amazing as is the 360
the ps3 is an amazing system, never had any problems like red rings or anything like that. the games on it are amazing and the bluray player is a no brainer. and for the ppl that say that the 250gb is a copy of the 250gb 360, you are totally wrong. although they might have the same amount of storage space, they are 2 very different systems with very different exclusives games on each. the ps3 is way more of a japanese system and the 360 is all american. for those of you who are looking for a good fps experence, and good ppl to play online with, and if you dont mind paying an extra 60 a year to play online, go with a 360, more power to you. if you are looking for a good rpg, amazing graphics, a bluray player, free online play, and overall fun, ps3 is the way to go. if you have the money and can afford it, i'd say go with both, best of both worlds. that is what i have, i get my rpgs on my ps3 and my fps on my 360. best of both worlds, and if you really want to, not that you have to, go ahead a throw a wii in there, just for the heck of it, get some super smash going on in there.
let me start off by saying I had the the fat 80 gig ps3 so the reson I got this one is my fat was just had about 8 or 9 gigs left so I was going to up grade to a better ahrd drive but then I saw this one comeing out 250 gigs not 120 gigs. The 250 gigs is great I use my old ps3 as a blu- ray player now but my sister has a xbox 360 and I got the ps3 well two ps3 now but my whole family uses is it. and we upgrade are tv to HD about a 4 to 3 weeks ago and when I played uncharted on SD and then played left for dead 2 on my sister xbox 360 on HD and ps3 games are starting to look better then wehn I was playing ps3 games in full HD WOW! I will say because it looks great. also if you can't deside witch one to get. Get a ps3 because of all the greart games that are on here and the ps3 got netflix the xbox 360 you have to pay to go online and you have to be gold memberto go on netfilx on the xbox 360 you just have to order the disk on netfilx to go on there for the ps3 so get a ps3 you won't regret it thanks for reading .
on par with latest 360 model
Ive had the ps3 for a little over a year now, and I love it. The playstation has free wifi, though it is missing a few of the wifi features the 360 has, like chat between games. Exclusive games on the playstation include littlebig planet, modnation racers, uncharted, infamous, and many more. When compared to the xbox exclusives like Halo, Gears of war, and Fable, the playstation exclusives tend to be more family friendly, though the playstation does have its more gittier titles, like killzone. If your a more *Hardcore* player that likes their violence, then the xbox would probably be more for you. The motion play option on the playstation however is garbage. While it does function better than the wii, it is still just a complete copy, with hardly any good games supporting it, though the kinect hardly fares any better when it comes to game selection. While the playstation is a bit pricy, it is well worth it with free wifi and fine game selection for casual and hardcore gamers.
this system is great i would recommend it if you don't want to pay for online ive had it for 3 months and i haven't had no problems at all
So many words so little time
Let me just start by saying, I've owned just about every gaming system since the early 90's so I know a thing or two about this. Let me tell you all why I chose a PS3. First, they look way cooler than anything out there. Second, it's versatility can't be matched by anything. Finally, who wants to hold a brick for hours? Let me elaborate, when the ps3 first came out to market it was already packed with everything you needed. Wifi built in, plenty of storage, and gaming unlike anything that's come out before it. Yes even Halo, go play the first Halo now 360'ers, it's lame. Not to mention most ppl had a problem with their 360 within a year, I had my 60gb ps3 for four years then sold it problem free. The ps3 is quiet and beautiful, you don't have to buy endless accessories a couple of controllers and blue-tooth headset for online, not something that plugs into ur brick of a controller and looks like it's from an 80's scifi flick. To sum up what's better free online gaming, blu ray, blue tooth, Internet, wifi, and superb gaming (PS3) or some noisey, ugly, aweful, piece of junk that can't do anything right (360)? Hope this helps make your decision a little easier ; )
PS3 Slim excellent... if it is working!
34 days and the Blu-Ray drive failed. My PS3 Slim stopped reading BR media (games and movies) but still plays DVDs. I was hoping that the issue would be quickly resolved with a settings re-set but it turned out to be the drive and I had to return the console to SCE for warranty repair. Purchasing an extended service or warranty plan is highly recommended!
The best, forget the rest.
Firstly, I'm sick of Xbox 360 fanboys immediately jumping up to say their system is so much better. I could argue all day with a 360 troll, but this isn't the place to do it. So back to the review. The Playstation 3 is better than the competition in many ways. There are only three things the Xbox holds over it, and many (much bigger) things that the PS3 holds over everything. #1. The Xbox 360 can play music, while you are playing a game. #2. The Playstation 3 cannot send voice messages, nor does it support any form of voice that outside of games. #3. The Xbox 360 often gets more game add on exclusives than PS3, as well as getting many add ons before Playstation 3. That being said, the Playstation 3 has a full web browser as opposed to only a select few sites. The browser cannot compete with that of a computer, but it's nice to watch Youtube videos and such right from your TV without another device. It's also one of the better Blu-Ray players on the market, which basically makes it an entire home media hub. Standard Blu-Ray game disks, also means more space for games. A traditional cross platform game is made with the Xbox 360 in mind, because the 360 has less disk space. A dual layered blu-ray game disk can store over 5 times what a DVD game disk can. That's why you'll see PS3 exclusive games looking better than Xbox 360 exclusives. Everyone complains about PSN vs Xbox Live, but they're complaining about the features (Voice chat/messaging) and not the gameplay. If your lagging real bad on one console, it's more likely to be your connection and not PSN. Meaning your lag would be experienced cross platform. Playstation 3 is great for both the hardcore, and the more laid back gamer. Great for the family, the loner or the party animal. It's got some epic hardcore games such as God of War, Uncharted, Infamous, Grand Turismo and especially Metal Gear. It's also got some epic family/kids games such as Little Big Planet and Mod Nation Racers. If your looking to spend some money for some lasting fun, and want an educated opinion from someone who has had multiple of both consoles then go for the Playstation 3. It really does do everything.
simply the best
the new 250 gb ps3 is worth the money that i spend. play the best films in blu-ray, see some of my photos and listen to some music inside the machine and of course play the best videogames of this year like ac2, uncharted 2, call of duty modern warfare 2, need for speed shift, ratchet, batman, god of war collection and play downloadable games exclusively inside the playstation network and watch the quore news and of couse playing a lot of times inside the multiplayer campaigns that have inside the games. the only system that gives you this high quality of experience is the playstation 3 and of course, you don't need to worry about the heating system because it has the good quality inside the other videogames of this generation. ps3 rules all the way !!!!!
The PS3 Slim 250gb v.s. XBOX 360 Slim 250gb??
Are you kidding me, Sony comes out with a PS3 Slim 250gb?! No matter what Microsoft dishes out, Sony always finds a way to convince gamers that YOU are getting more for less money,....think about it!** For instance, the PS3 Slim is the only system that doesn't have the adapter made(the Brick) externally. Also, the PS3 Slim has the built in blue ray and oh yes it has the adapter also built in as well;(space saving) and you would imagine that the PS3 Slim with all that built in, it would possibly overheat, yes?? NO,...Sony's PS3 Slim was so well put together, that Microsoft till this day still couldn't figure out how Sony did it, and that's a FACT! For Instance, the XBOX 360 Slim has all those vents(all over), and the system still runs very hot, (the PS3 Slim has hardly any vents, that's insane!! How does it run so cool??It's 35% MORE energy efficient!)and not to mention, I just made research recently and found out that the new XBOX 360 Slim's are still having issues with overheating and also discs getting stuck inside the console!!(the old XBOX 360's had the same problem) If you think I'm not telling the truth, MORE than 10+ of my friends took back their XBOX 360 Slim's(the 4gb or 250gb) and told the employees that work at GameStop, that their XBOX 360 Slim's would overheat to the point that system just crashes, completely; and doesn't read discs no more!! Microsoft thought they took care of the problem, by installing a program with in the console; if it gets too hot, this New XBOX 360 Slim's SKU auto feature will prevent the RROD. Sadly, and this the truth, Microsoft's XBOX 360 Slim's are still questionable and problematic, BE CAREFUL!! I personally don't hate XBOX 360's, but in the future, you definitely want a system that's reliable and fun. In conclusion, Sony's PS3 Slim is the ideal choice for the present and the near future. You're getting blue ray, better exclusives, free online, surf the web,(a feature that XBOX 360 Slim's SHOULD HAVE, but doesn't, just a little disappointing :o) what MORE can you ask for! Sony surprises us again. The point is you're getting more for you're money and it's worth it, a little expansive, but worth it. PS3 Slim is the system to get. Believe me! :) Don't be deceived!!**
