Rated 10 out of 10 by frow_unibrow best thing ever
I bought my playstation 3 about a year ago, and I have been very happy with my decision. It's and excellent system that delivers in every field. The graphics are gorgeous, the sound is absolutely beautiful, I have never had to restart my ps3 due to freezing, and all of the other features it comes with are great. First, I love how it has wi-fi! I wouldn't be able to play online if my ps3 didn't, because my tv is so far from my modem. Playstation Network is free, too, so I don't have to keep paying money after I already bought my playstation. The only thing I don't like is that it isn't backwards compatible with the ps2, and I can't play music through the playstation during one of my games. That hasn't been much of a problem, though, because my mp3 dock works just as well. Last, I have never had my ps3 break or anything. The ps3 has a failure rate of less than 1%, while the 360's failure rate is 33%, that's pretty impressive. The ps3 has plenty of really fun games, too. I completely suggest the ps3 to anyone.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Bpatches The best device I have EVER owned.
This is the best device I have ever owned. Notice I said device and that's because it goes far beyond being a console in terms of quality. My only complaint thus far and it should soon be fixed is there is no in-game XMB but that should be fixed between now and E3 so other than that this is absolutely perfect. As for no backward compatibility I have no problems with that because I have a ps2 and this gives me a reason to keep my ps2 but I haven't honestly touched it since I've got this a month ago. I have had no hiccups or freezes at all what so ever with this system and I currently play it at least 10 hours a day in a hot room that is usually 80 degrees or hotter so there is no cooling issue at all. It is also a very quiet system because if it didn't have lights and the tv wasn't on you'd never know it was on! I recommend this system for anyone even if you aren't into games because it's so good at being a blu-ray player and it's great to be able to go and watch Youtube videos from the internet browser on my tv :D.
Rated 4 out of 10 by hambone I expected better...
I wanted to buy a PS3 mainly for the blu-ray player and one or two games. I decided the refurb would be the way to go since I already have an xbox 360. The first thing I did was try to play a blu-ray and within 5 minutes of the movie the fan kicked into high. The fan was so distracting that I couldn't pay attention to anything but how loud it was. I was surprised because people always said the fan on the PS3 was nothing compared to the 360. Well I've had my 360 for almost 4 years and I have never been bothered by the fan why watching a movie or playing a game. The PS3 is quiet when it is doing nothing, but when I was in the menus hovering over a demo the fan would even kick into high and when it does its loud. I tried putting the PS3 in open areas, vertical, all those different tricks but nothing changed. I still want a PS3 and probably will buy another since I returned the one I got here but I will looking for one that is a lot quieter.

Rated 10 out of 10 by Playstation 3 AMAZING
This is the best gaming system I have ever owned. There is no doubt in my mind that PS3 is the power house of gaming systems. In my opinion Xbox is years behind when it come to the technology in the system. First of all PS3 a has built in wireless adapter, something that Xbox felt was unnecessary in there systems even the elite. PS3 has the new HD Blue-Ray player built in which gives you the best possible picture when watching movies. But the major factor to me when it came down to picking what system I wanted it was that Playstation does not charge you for every thing. Xbox charges you to play online they charge you for a year to play. Almost every thing you have to pay extra for the Xbox, Playstation has it already built in or it is free, like playing online. The arcade system seems like a good deal but it does not even come with a hard drive which is needed to save games. So over all the Playstation 3 is the better system, so spend the extra money and get the Playstation. You will save money in the long run, and will not have to deal with the Red Ring of Death.
Rated 10 out of 10 by SiilentMerc BEST SYSTEM I HAVE EVER HAD
This is by far the best system I have had! I have had a gamecube, ps2, wii, xbox, xbox 360, ps3 and some handheld systems but nothing compares to the ps3! The graphics are amazing compared to most systems. The sound quality is so realistic that you feel like the game you are playing is happening right in your home. I can't believe how amazing this system feels when you play it! If i could, I would stay up all day and night playing this AMAZING system! The greatest part of the ps3 is the totally FREE online gameplay you don't even have to give them a credit card number unlike the xbox so there is no worry about unwanted purchases or charges that you didn't make which happened to me with my xbox 360! I will never get rid of this system ever until i am too old for games which i will dread that age when I reach then! My advice is to buy this system, not an xbox 360 or a Wii, buy a PS3 and you won' t regret it!
Rated 10 out of 10 by poorjack Best system on the market by far.
I remember a few years back at the release of PS3. I owned an X-Box 360, was a die-hard X-Box fan, and didn't think it could get better. I recieved a PS3 as a gift in 2007-2008, and the only way I can describe the experience is eye opening. PS3 is a multi media gaming and killing machine! I have since cancelled X-Box live because I can't stand the interface. PSN is a perfect system, and anyone who doubts it has never used it. The X-Box 360 is a mere child's toy. It is round, it is soft, it is a toy. PS3 is a gamer's system. A powerhouse of gaming goodness, and I have NO complaints. The only con is the heat, but on a cold winter night, PS3 doubles as a heater for a small room, so it can be taken as a pro. Thank you. PROS: -Graphics power house -Free online play -Controller layout perfect -PS exclusives are excellent -Dashboard interface is simple and intuitive -Backwards compatibility with the vast majority of PS1 and PS2 games -Built in Blu-Ray CONS: -Runs hot -Is much larger than X-Box or Wii, and can take up alot of space (But that can be amended by removing said X-Box or Wii)
