Of course it can play video games and that should be its primary function. It does this well. The online Playstation store makes it easy to browse titles and even better, download free demos. This model (250 GB Slim - redesign) comes with enough stock memory to last you a good while, whether you're storing games, music, or movies. I personally like the sliding cover over a retractable disc tray. It eases the placement of the discs so I don't feel like I have to be as delicate, not to mention it's easy to see any dust accumulation and/or access the laser for cleaning. And I don't know that there's problems with the disc tray, but the less moving parts the better. You can hear some of the disc reading noises, but it's usually short lived and not really bothersome anyways. I've had it running night after night, sometimes for 6 hours continuous and it's not getting hot at all...just a slight warmth.

I also now use it to stream Netflix, through which we watch all kinds of TV shows and movies. I would recommend an HDMI cable though, assuming you have a TV capable of supporting it. It makes a noticeable difference in the resolution. The settings can usually be used on default and are fairly intuitive, but there's a wealth of things you can change or tweak to suit your needs. For example I have my HDMI cable running to my TV, but also have the RG cables running to my PA mixer for even bigger sound. But to allow this you have to allow it to split audio outputs first.

There's probably an overabundance of other reviews about its usage, so I'll just close with a glowing recommendation. I played my PS2 for over a decade (still running btw, but obviously no longer in use). This system blows it away.

Disclaimer: I'm a first time Playstation buyer. I just upgraded from my trusty, yet very old Wii. I am very new to Playstation, so I won't be able to tell you a lot about how it differs from other Playstations.

I had owned a Wii for around 4 years when I decided it was time for an upgrade. My Wii was pretty good, but it didn't have the controller, graphics, or games that I wanted. So, I began a week-long search for a console. I new one thing- it had to be able to play NCAA football and Madden, since I am a complete sports geek XD. So, that narrowed it down to two systems- the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3. I looked at prices, controllers, layout, games, settings, build, graphics, processors, everything. The Xbox won in almost everything but the price, since you have to pay $60 a year for a Xbox Live Gold membership, which I certainly didn't want to pay. I didn't really know what to expect from either, so I wen't ahead and took a gamble on the PS3. I've never made a better decision. The thing runs like a dream, with only a few laggy spots at very hard-to-process moments. But don't worry, the lag isn't bad at all, and only stays around for 2-3 seconds. No biggie. The layout is great, and easy to access. I bought a bundle with the eye and move, so I could still have that Wii-like aspect if I wanted it. Both controllers work great, and are easy to use. Now, I will get into the real review.
Build-
I bought the PS3 Super Slim, and it is very small. It's actually only around two inches taller then the Wii. You press a button to open the Disc Slot, and simply put the disc in and close the 'door' firmly. It actually is quite fun to close the door. You actually feel like you are manually putting in some software, which is fun.

This was ridiculous. The warehouse deal was a piece of crap. The description was completley innacurate! The item we recieved looked like it came out of the bottom of a box from a garage sale. No product box, no anything. Just a dirty scratched up console and a dirty scratched up controller. Someone had to have been using this at a frat house for years. Cannot believe Amazon would be so deceptive. I hope this is not a new trend in warehouse deals. Very dissapointed and what a waste of time. Be warned if looking at warehouse deals. So now we are waiting for a return label to return this and watch amazon try to sell it to someone else. Not o.k.

Slim REdesign. Nothing special..
I'm happy with the purchase. It's often loud at times, but I haven't ran into any freezing like my first PS3 Slim.

I bought this primarily to play 'The Pinball Arcade' since the Xbox 360 version was basically dead in the water. And so far I am using it mainly as a Blu-ray player and to play the aforementioned TPA. And honestly I have no complaints. I paid just under two hundred for it so it was a good deal in my book.

Everything runs smoothly and the Blu-ray player functions very well. I had previously owned the original Playstation as well as the Playstation 2(my all-time favorite) and wasn't planning on ever purchasing the PS3 since there weren't enough games on it that I liked in order to justify the purchase price(which was steep during the early days). But I'm glad that I waited since I prefer the slim version with the lower price.
