Best solution with a good game
on January 22, 2014
I was going for PS4 but: games for PS4 are toooooo expensive!!There arent many games available like those for PS3!
More like that the thing about NEW things is that they are going on a test run from first users- think about the cars and those times you get called back for some BRAKE sensor issue they have found after the car is just released..Its the same here- If you want to play it safe just give it some time. And it might get cheaper also after 2-3 months. So I went on this PS3 with the LAST OF US included. The fact that was sold by Amazon counted a lot and I turned down the offer wich included BATMAN too. The item got in AFGHANISTAN fast- like 10 days- not damaged. I tried it here and works- The only thing is that software version on this one was 4.40 and the game requires 4.41- That is not good at all- since i cant go online here to have any updates. But we'll take care of that once I get back home. Seems to work on 110v and also on 220v- i'm on 220v back home! Plays Blurays no matter the region code(see it somewhere on the manual- has region 1 and ALL)- but I'll have to double check that too. So I got a BLURAY PLAYER and a console and multimedia station in the same time- And I have also a remote control for this console from Sony..looking good and even better than my Tv remote..Great product and I'm happy with the price 249$..home is more like 390$. Also get an HDMI cable and an DIGITAL AUDIO OUT for your TV or HOME CINEMA if you run with COMPOSITE and want someting else playing the sound other than the TV set.
PS: No worryies about the noise and heating- You can hear the drive working but only if you are really close to it..and about the heating just place it closer to the ground, because heat goes up and the cooler intake air will be more effective in lowering the console temp. Else means you got a problem with the console, your room is too hot or something else I cant think about now.
One more thing: the front loading door is great because if it gets dusty on the lens- you can easily clean it! You dont need to take down the unit for cleaning- so keep the console in a non dust environment, use a air spray cleaner once in a while.
