PlayStation 3 System 40GB
Oh my God....I love this System
I bought this 40Gb system almost 4 years ago and it's still running great. Thank you Gamestop for a great refurbished console. I use it about every day and will continue to use it. I grew up with Playstation so of course I'll say that it is better. I feel it is an all around more mature and respected console than that of Microsoft's. I recommend this console to everyone looking to have some fun.
The ps3 discussion
I believe that the PLAYSTATION 3 is one of the most amazing products Sony has maid. There is a 80gb, 60gb(not for sale anymore), 40gb, 20gb PS3's. Now 40gb PS3 might be less but you are missing some great additions that the 60gb, and 80gb PS3's offer. Both of them have the ability to switch between HD-DVD, to Blue ray witch takes the most out of your money to make you say AWwwwwww. The playstation's design is just like a ps2 but it stop has been rounded for more room for the bang. Blue ray first of all is betters then HD-DVD because it hold more data then a CD(compact disk) and allows more amazing graphic to the picture. Some games that come out Preferably( GRID, NFS:PROSTREET, MIDNIGHT CLUP, GRAND TURISMO 5) add a hole new think to the playstation. Its performance seem to be slow sometimes from forums I read about the PS3, so goes with the sound but after all it seems to be better then a XBOX 360, but the gay Microsoft fans like to call the playstation a piece of worthless technology.
ps3 is the best system
ps3 is the best console out there. i would recomend every one to get it .blu ray is frekin sweet the picture is amazing way better then hd on xbox 360. turok is a great game i would recomend if you like killing bad guys and dinosours then this is the game for you. call of duty 4 modern warefare is the best game i bought. only one problem you can not go back to a level after you start a new campaign even if you just started. the console is quite heavy but who cares. the only problem is when you are carrying it out to your car but don't worry the load will totally worth it. when you play ps2 games on it is still really great. time crisis is a ok game, make sure if you buy it you turn on the scope on your tv. it is a button on the left side in the front. if you are like me you will press every button till you get it.the design is sleek and makes it look stillin. i love how if you buy a soy memory card you can put it in your ps3 under the little door. and make a picture be your back ground
The Playstation 3 is an amazing system. I have little or no complaints about any part of the system. I would recommend any Playstation 3 model to every gamer who is looking for a new system. The graphics are outstanding, especially when they are in high-def, and even though the graphics are not in high-def, the graphics are still quite impressive. The Playstation 3 design is a big improvement from the Playstation 2. The fan is nice and quiet unlike the Xbox 360 or the Playstation 2. The online support on the Playstation 3 does what it needs to do. It has an internet browser. The online play is great, but half of the online play has to do with the game you're playing. For example, Call of Duty 4 has fantastic online play, but Resistance: Fall of man could use some improvement. The performance of the system is excellent. But the downloading rate could be quicker. The Playstation 3 is an impressive system, with excellent graphics, sound, functionality, performance, and a excellent design.
THE NUMBER #1 SYSTEM
This system is the best that there is. The xbox and the xbox 360 dont matter to me because the ps3 beats both of them it beats them in presentation the graphics the games everything about the ps3 is great. The games for the ps3 are the best games to me the backrounds the looks. This system is also great because it is a blue ray player the movies the look the sound are all perfect especially the sounds because it sounds like there is someone right next to you talking to you and the look is so real that it feels like you are inside the game. The price may be high but it is defenitly worth it also is great because you can go online and its free you can download pictures and videos also music from the internet from your psp memory card if youhave one you can also download the pictures from your camera. Another great thing is that the online is free. I also would recommend the ps3 because it does not get the red ring of death. That is why I would recommend the ps3 to all the people who likes the playstation systems and the other people who just likes to watch bluray movies and play games.
Average System broke down in a year.
My Ps3 started great at first, well so it seemed. I had issues with the internet connectivity with PSN. I ended up using an Ethernet cable just to download a game. The system would sometimes freeze, but shortly after it would turn on. However, the experience on the console was great. The games were perfect on it, and the blue- ray was great. But, in the end my console ended up "overheating" or with the yellow light of death. The console lasted a good year, I would not recommend this console, I would get one of the slims.
First I would like to say that I was never really "hardcore" into gaming. I would play every once and awhile. My wife went and got me the xbox360, I had the thing 4 months and it took a dump, and din't work anymore something called the ring of death. I never sent iit in to get it fixed because I fugured it would take forever. I bought a Wii for the family, I felt like a child playing a commodore 64. I then hinted to my wife, for my b-day to get me a PS3, she did, and now every night I get home from work at midnight I am online playing COD4 and Battlefield Bad Company. I just stared playing MG4, and I have to say AWESOME graphics, and easy to understand, in my terms in how to hook up and use online. I can't see spending all that money per year to play online. I mean you pretty much have to sell your soul to play the 360 online, everything has a fee. I would highly recommend this syetm to anyone who wants it all. Blu-Ray is such a great feature it was def. the nail in the cofin to get this system.
pros and cons
frist im going to rant about the cons, ok the thing that are bad are its loud as heck, heavy(thick verson), and also this is rare but i got it andi need a new ps3 because i got the code of death(80010514) and i bet some of you dont know what this is but its means that the A) your hard drive is messed up b) your bd player is fried, and you can send your ps3 in for $150 but sony doesnt tell you that u need a recet or the warrenty >:( so i have to wait till x_mas to play agian, or get 300 some how, now for the PROS, psn is free, has games like mgs4 little big planet1-2, mag, and more, graghics and reallt good the best for any system out there, psn is good fast and stuff, friends parts is good, home witch is the funnest this ever you just run around this huge place and talk and play games, and the blue ray player is good ALSO
WHICH ONE IS BETTER
Since the launch of the next gen. systems i have owned a ps3 60 gig, nintendo wii, and currently have an xbox 360 elite. My opinon is all systems are amazing depending on what kind of gamer you are. If u are hardcore online and like to keep stats to flaunt your gaming works get a 360. If you are a causal gamer who doesnt have the time to play that much or have kids get a wii. If your like me however and you love rpgs like final fantasy and you know blu-ray is going to take everything over soon get a ps3. The potential of the ps3 has not even been hit yet. Once game developers are able to take full advantage of the cell processors the graphics will be unbeatable, and the ps3 disc hold more content then xbox 360 and wii. It starting to look bright for ps3 owners but if you are a hardcore gamer and want a ps3 get a 80gig 40 seems great for the price but i would say get the 80 gig trust me with all the games and things you can download on ps store you GOING TO NEED IT!!!!!!!
The sony ps3 is amazing! IT offers a lot. The graphics are out of control awesome and I don't even have an HD tv. The only thing I don't like is you cant play ps2 games on ps3. The sound is pretty good id give it a 9 out of 10. The sports games for the ps3 are like u are actually there. The games have great sound and everything looked so real. I would recommend the ps3 over the xbox360. 360s are great but they make a lot of noise and ps3 has better online play. The only game I like for xbox360 is Halo 3 but that games is the bomb. The ps3 offers a blue-ray player built inside of the it and it's really nice. The only thing I heard about the Sony Ps3 is that it can burn out after a while I bought my at Best Buy and it offers a 1 year warranty. The online is awesome you just loose connection sometimes. But the graphics online stay the same thats what's great. Playstation Network is fun and FREE! It is awesome!
