Under the Hood of the PlayStation 3
The PlayStation 3 features IBM's "Cell" processor and a co-developed Nvidia graphics processor that makes the system able to perform two trillion calculations per second. That's approximately 320 times more calculations per second than the PS2. Along with the traditional AV and composite connections, it also boasts an HDMI port, which delivers uncompressed, unconverted digital picture and sound to compatible high-definition TV and projectors. The system is capable of 128-bit pixel precision and 1080p resolution for a full HD experience.

Blu-Ray is the New Way
Sony's PlayStation 3 games are encoded onto the Blu-Ray disc media format, which can hold six times as much data as traditional DVDs. This increase in capacity--combined with the awesome power of its processor and graphics card--promises mind-blowing games once developers have learned how to fully harness the new console's power. The PS3 will also support CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD+R formats. In addition, PlayStation 3 system software update version 2.20 and up includes BD Live support. With this you can now play discs that support Blu-ray Disc Profile 2.0 (BD-LIVE) and you can also connect to the Internet while playing discs that support this format so that you can obtain additional features. Features that are available vary depending on the software in use.

The Dualshock 3 Rumble Wireless Controller
The Dualshock 3 Rumble wireless controller for the PlayStation 3 system provides the most intuitive game play experience with pressure sensors in each action button and the inclusion of the highly sensitive SIXAXIS motion sensing technology. Each hit, crash and explosion is more realistic when the user feels the rumble right in the palm of their hand. It can even detect natural movements for real-time and high precision interactive play, acting as a natural extension of the user’s body. Dualshock 3 wireless controller utilizes Bluetooth technology for wireless game play and the controller’s USB cable to seamlessly and automatically charge the controller through the PlayStation 3 system at anytime.

Online
Sony has stated that the PlayStation 3 will have similar online connectivity and services as the next generation of Xbox Live. Calling it "an always on, always connected device," SCEI's chief technical officer Masa Chatani said the PlayStation 3 would be constantly in touch with a "PlayStation World" network "fundamentally based on community, communication commerce, and content." Technically, the infrastructure is there to make that connection. The PS3 supports 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, 1000BASE-T Ethernet, as well as IEEE 802.11 b/g wireless networking protocols.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Necessary disclosure: I do not own this model but do I own the 60GB model, recently upgraded to 320GB. I am also very familiar with the latest 80GB model (which is basically this one with a larger disk) because one of my neighbors has one and I am the neighborhood's unofficial and unpaid 'computer' consultant :). I did some research in anticipation of us purchasing a second unit because I promised the kids 'their own' if their grades were going to meet a certain standard.

As compared to the 60GB model (see this model's pluses and minuses and what all PS3s have in common):
______________________________________________
+ Less expensive (I paid $599 for my 60GB PS3)
+ Improved power efficiency - 110w vs. 180w for my old 60GB
+ Dual shock controller (rumble)
+ Bundled MGS4 game and extras
+ Amazon Blu-ray movies promotion (buy 4 movies from list and get $100 off through end of 2008)
+ Mate, easier to maintain finish (can't see the fingerprints)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value in a unique bundle November 19, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This model is different from the current 80 gig playstation 3 in the following ways: it has a 40 gig HD, it is gun metal instead of piano black, and it includes a limited edition copy of Metal Gear Solid 4.

If you plan on using this system as a true media center, than the HD is probably too small. This would most likely be the case with an 80 gig HD as well. Fortunately, the PS3 uses laptop HDs which are plentiful and cheap. Another reviewer has already addressed this.

The system itself is beautiful and the production run of this package is supposedly very limited. This means you will have a unique PS3 many will envy. It also means that many accessories (ie: additional control, headset, etc.) will not match the color scheme. If you have never played MGS, the series is very engrossing; this game was created to sell systems. Despite the smaller HD and the lack of matching accessories, I am very pleased with this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars I could not afford $599 but $399 is affordable. November 13, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had a PS3 before but it was too noisy and overheated so I sold it. I read that they had fixed the problem. I wanted this Grey PS3 when it first was offered by Konami. I couldn't pay $600 so I stuck with my PS2 until the right time. I just lately typed in "Playstation Console Metal Gear" in the Amazon search thinking I was going to get the 80gb version and this popped and I couldn't believe that this was still for sale and for $400. I grabbed it as fast as I could. I've heard that this is basically the same as the new 80gb version, I don't care about storage that much and I don't like the Piano Black the only other color for me would be the Ceramic White but they never have sold it in the United States.
The Grey is very nice and I got MGS4 with it. I am very satisfied!

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't go wrong with GunMetal Gray... November 14, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I ordered this through Amazon and they shipped the next business day. Got the item very fast, even when I picked "Free Shipping." Now on to business....my initial impression of the item was just...WOW. The system looked awesome when I took it out of the box (it still does). The gray finish went well with the system. What's best is that you won't have to worry about finger prints showing up all over the system nor about visible dust particles. It came with all the regular wires which it normally comes with (no HDMI cable which you have to buy seperately). The bundle came with Metal Gear Solid 4 and two bonus disks (one BlueRay with the background story of Metal Gear and one music CD). They included a cool case for the DVDs (you can see the picture of the case on the snapshot of the PS3 box). As for performance...it's really quiet when I was playing the BlueRay disk. It didn't make any sound at all. It took pretty long to upgrade the system software though (it was upgrading from 2.30 to 2.52 or something like that). Overall, I am extermely pleased with the purchase of this special edition. Not only it's in different color but also MGS4 and bonus contents are included. It's 40GB and the price is the same for the 80GB system. But the bonus contents and the different color of the system more than makes up for the hard drive space difference. And the PS3 box looks really cool as well. In conclusion...if you're a Metal Gear Solid fan (I wouldn't consider myself as a fan as I've played only a few games of the series, none for the PS2), thinking of buying a new PS3; now's your chance to get the "limited edition" for the fraction of the price for which it was being offered earlier (this is the main reason I bought the system).
