Platform for Display: PS3 500GB SystemEdition: New
Believe it or not, this is actually my 1st time owning a PS3. For me the high price & the lack of backwards compatibility in the later models kept me from buying one.

Now with the PS3 entering its twilight as a console, I'd found this model for just under $200 & decided to buy it.

Although late in its cycle, there's a backlog of great games released for this system- & there's still games being released for it. Plus there's the HDD- at 500 GB, that's 25 times the space in the original PS3 "fat" model that came out nearly 9 years ago. That should be more than enough for your gaming needs (& if not, the disk drive is replaceable). You can also store other things beside game data- photos, video, & music files as well. & if you don't have a Blu-Ray player, the PS3 plays Blu-Ray, DVDs, & CDs too. Add a video app (like YT, Netflix or even an Amazon Prime Video one) & you have a console that can handle almost all your entertainment needs outside of games. Just be sure you have internet service & you can connect the PS3 to it via Ethernet or Wi-Fi.

& I love the wireless controller that comes with this. Prior to buying this, whenever I hear a wireless controller, I think of a controller that runs on store-bought batteries. Yes this does run on batteries, but they charged with the power of the PS3 via the USB cord which comes with it, rather than having to go buy batteries at a store. It only comes with 1 controller, so be sure to buy an extra one.

So despite being late in its life cycle, this is still a great console for those who never owned a PS3, have a tight budget & are weary about spending hundreds of dollars on the current game systems.

PS: about the model design, this is a Super Slim. & despite some complains I heard about, I really like it.

This is a PRODUCT review of the unit being offered here, and in no way discusses the pros, cons, and the fanbois of any aspect of gaming consoles in general.

My brother's PS Slim finally died... oh ya, just stopped reading discs, period. He had the older PS3 Slim with the front disc loader. This one is a bit different in design, one I expect is a far newer "Slim" - most importantly it is a top-loader on which you place the disc directly upon the reader. The buttons are on the front, all manual push, and it has a ribbed texture whereas the older Slim was smooth. It has all the ports to be expected, and WiFi reception is excellent. The 500gig drive is a bit of a step up over his older one, a huge plus for his DL addiction (lol).

But as a replacement unit, this works flawlessly. My bro synched all his trophies, data, and DLC games to this unit (after watching some YouTube tutorials on the process) and is back online with his GTA and such. Heh.

If my own 8 year old 1st Generation PS3 ever dies, I would first move heaven and earth to get it fixed... but at the very least, I would indeed buy this one if all else fails, secure in the knowledge it performs so well.

UPDATE: I posted my original review quite some time ago, and it has taken quite a bit of frustration for my to come back and edit this. To begin, I will sing a few praises. I like the PS3, it's graphics, how it works, and the available games (namely GT6). BUT, I have recently had so many problems with this awful console that I am seriously considering abandoning Sony consoles after being a die-hard fan for many, MANY years!

This is because I recently had the PS3 freeze up, and had to turn it off manually. This corrupted the data, and the only way to fix it involved me losing EVERYTHING. So, okay, fine. At least I had gotten back up and running again. I had made it about to the point in the game where I was before, and then a new System Update came out. I tried to update, and -- GUESS WHAT? -- the data is corrupted again! There is no reason that the console should be having problems like this. My PS2 never did this. So am I going to just lose everything again? I'm attempting a useless system restore right now, but if I can't fix it without losing everything then I might just go to Xbox, which means a lot considering that I'm a Gran Turismo fan.

Sony made these consoles poorly. No hate on the company that sold me the console. Make your own decision about whether or not you want this -- just keep in mind it is not reliable! I have the Super Slim, and in my experience the Fat consoles tend to be better. Still, I don't think that is currently my problem. Regardless, the system is still restoring after more than 24 hours, so I don't have much hope.

I still love Playstation, so maybe I won't give up. I don't know. Just letting all of you know about my experience so you can make a decision!

It arrived right on time, and the system was not damaged at all! I got it new, but it was worth it. The only thing is that it does not come with an hdmi cord. Thankfully, i had one at home. I highly recommend this product, but just make sure you have an hdmi cord. It is much more clear with jt.
