4.0 out of 5 stars ps3: What's good, what could be better..., January 18, 2012

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony PlayStation 3 Slim 320 GB Charcoal Black Console (Video Game)
I recently bought a new TV and needed a new DVD/Blu-ray player to complement it. I chose the ps3 ($249 from Amazon with a $50 credit/rebate)for its ability to play both DVDs and Blu-Ray disks, as well as games. Works great, and I love being able to download ALL my music and photos onto the ps3 hard drive for playback on my TV. Although I'm not a gamer, thought I'd give it a try and bought Gran Turismo 5,Madden NFL 10, and NHL 10 used for $20 at local Game Stop store. Games have come a long way since Mario, and require MUCH practice to become proficient. Since ps3 came with only one controller, needed to buy a second one ($45 from Amazon). When downloading music to hard drive, titles and tracks did not show up. Could be my fault though, because I didn't take the time to read all of the pages and pages and pages of directions available on-line for the ps3 system. You can add titles to playlists and tracks manually via the controller, but if you are smart you will buy add on qwerty keyboard for your controller (another $20 from Amazon). Overall I'm am very pleased with the ps3 320GB system that I bought. Great movie and game clarity using HDMI cable, 3-D capable, on-line gaming and communications. I connect to Comcast with wireless router; set-up was fairly simple. It will take you awhile to get used to the controller and all of it's functions, but a remote is available (for another $20 from Amazon).
