First of all, PS3 has the most horsepower, and it shows. For certain games, the XBox 360 version will be better, but in general, the PS3 version offers better graphics. The PS3 also almost always offers the best video cut-scenes and audio due to the storage capacity of Blu-ray. But to be fair, for gaming, each console has its pros and cons and so there is no clear winner amongst them.
This is less true for everything else. The PS3 clearly defeats the Xbox360 and blows away the Wii in AV capabilities, whether it is the black levels and color accuracy I am able to squeeze out of my plasma for streaming video from Netflix or Crunchyroll without hours of calibration at best, or the brute force audio video domination offered by Blu-ray playback which no console including the Wii-U from the 6-th generation can even come close to.
PS3 offers many games and "apps" the other consoles don't cater to, namely those originating from the Japanese market. If you play mostly RPGs PS3 is an obvious first choice. If you want to watch Nico-Nico channel PS3 is an obvious choice.
There are also little things about the PS3 that are just right, like my Samsung plasma knows how to control it correctly via the AV standards established, or that DLNA really just works right and doesn't have just the same interface/support offered in 2006 like the XBox360 does.
PS3 offers some really one of a kind offerings like shared support with the PSP and Vita in the marketplace(you can buy PS2/PSX games and play it on all your devices, how about that!), which are just nice and the competition doesn't offer.
The downsides are mostly that PSN is not as good as XBox Live, or at least, wasn't as good. As of 2012 the differences are more moot but by that point for 6th gen it hardly mattered since XBox fans already had a billion gamer points to their profiles and a thousand friends racked up on their superior service while PSN users were sort of just confused and annoyed by downtime or hacking disturbances. Hopefully in the 7th generation this will not matter as much. But that said, I think many PS3 gamers didn't miss games XBox fans racked up hundreds of hours on all that much.
I got mine from Amazon Warehouse Deals and it shipped with original packaging and included one dualshock and one six axis controller.
I was listed as like new and so far it works pretty good. It has very minor signs of use, mostly on the shiny area near the slot drive.
All original cables where also in the box.
Works way better than the new super slims. I will be taking it apart for cleaning and fresh thermal compound in a few days. Will also be installing a 500gb drive.
I had originally bought a new super slim but they seem to have go rid of the HDD led activity indicator on the latest super slim hardware revision.
- a great Blu-ray player that is updated frequently by Sony ( firmware updates allow this player to evolve over time!)
- ability to rent/stream movies from my couch through PSN is great! No subscription required.( this was also present in the older models, just one that i love!)
- obviously the SLIM is lighter, smaller, and more energy efficient. (more efficient was a huge draw for me)
- much quieter than my 40GB PS3! (especially during blu-ray playback and long game play!)
- PS3 Slim has ability to bitstream Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD MA audio( my receiver can now display TrueHD audio properly!)
- overall very easy and smooth process(took about an hour to backup and restore my data)
- ensure you de-Authorize your old PS3 before trading it in! ps3 will prompt you about this when formatting old ps3.
- However, on your new PS3 slim, you will need to download ALL of your PSN content again! This will take some time, depending upon the amount of content you have bought and downloaded. (this includes your PSN games, expansion packs, and all your Rock Band or GH songs!)
- PLEASE NOTE: not ALL of my save game data transfered over! Apparently this is a well documented problem, that some games lock your save data to one console only! This was very disappointing as I lost all of my progress in games like Rock Band and Killzone! I am hoping these can be fixed with enough user complaints.
Overall, the same great PS3 experience! Easy upgrade process with a few gotchas to be aware of but this in no way takes away from the amount of value you get with this new PS3!
