by DbCooper 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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by A console gamer Great System
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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by pork chop 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

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.

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.

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!!!!!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by leo305 The best console this generation
Hello, I own a playstation 3 console from sony. I would like to write this review to inform all of you why this is the gaming system of the future. The ps3 holds alot of potential far beyond what all other consoles can achieve in there life time. With games like killzone 2, metal gear solid 4, Resistance 2, Jak future,Gran turismo 5, and god of war this system will deliver graphics beyond your immagination. This console this year has outsold every other hardcore system on the market, and is setting itself for games after games after games. In my opinion it is the best system you can purchase. Not to mention it holds a Blu-ray player inside which is the future disc, watching beutiful movies in HD at full 1080p is nothing you should take lightly. This is the year of the ps3, the year this console shows everyone what it can do and will do. All the games are on PS3 this year, its a console you cannot miss. I recommend the console to everyone even adults, this is the multimedia gaming machine of the future.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Mohamed PS3 BEST out of xbox 360
The Playstation 3 is one of the best game systems ever. With the wireless internet connection, it is great becuase there there is no plugs. With the best graphics Sony can delever, it's the best. Some people say XBOX 360 is less but once you think about, buying the 40gb is actually cheaper. Why? Well with XBOX 360, you have to pay for online and the controllers run in batteries and yes you can charge the controllers but you have to BUY the charger stand while PLAYSTATION 3 already comes with the charger right in the box. SO now do you agree? The light controller is nice and easy to hold. And yes, don't forget the blu ray. Some people say that PLAYSTATION 3 doesn't have good games unlike XBOX with HALO but in 2008, you will get the games you dreamed of - Metal Gear Solid 4, Grand Trasimo 5, and MANY MORE!!! So, you should get the PLAYSTATION 3 because it is cheaper once you think about it, has amazing graphics, and has wireless internet and IT'S FREE!!! Buy the PLAYSTATION 3 it's the best console ever!!!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Lilparadise Play Beyond? Will I like to Play? Ofcoures it's next gen!
So, The PS3 and the Xbox360 are gifts from heaven. So, they are graphically more impressive than Nintendo's Wii system. I've played all of the next gen systems and I am highly impressed. This is my review of the PS3: Price: The PlayStation 3 is very inexpensive compared to PC computers with the same features. You Design: The PlayStation 3 has a rugged shine that could rival some sports cars. It's shaped like my grand-mom's toaster, but it is a powerhouse of gaming goodness packed into a small shoe-box sized shell. Graphics: When looking at the PS3 in standard definition it looks like someone lost the screen to they're super computer, but in HD the PlayStation 3 will blow you're mind. Games: The PS3 has been under the microscope for it's lack of good games. However the PlayStation 3's exclusives more than make up for it's blunders. With games like Metal Gear Solid 4, Final Fantasy 13, and God of War 3 to look forward to, I don't know who wouldn't buy it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Kronus Great System
This is the best system yet i mean it is great the graphics are to and it can hold alot of things on it music,pictures,videos,exc. I have had mine for about 6 months or so and just this mornig I go to turn it on and the green pops up then it switched to yellow and turned its self of i diddnt know what it meant but it ticked me of. rite know it is working fine but i'm shure it is going to happen again. But it is a great system and i think every one should have one. The game has speachless graphics. But i think the best game rite know are Grand Theft Auto lV and Bad Company. They both have great sound graphics and i think when you buy a Playstation 3 You should get those two games you would be amazed. The playstation 3 comes with a USB cord so you can get Online and a controler I think it should come with two because they cost about the price of a back waxing each and ofcourse the PS3 my sytem came with all that plus MotorStorm (Not a fun game). But it is a good system. I hope you found this review helpful thank you for reading.
