I have mixed feelings about this new blue PS3. It does work, everything plays just fine on it, and it does everything exactly as the old versions of the PS3 did. But for some reason it just feels a little cheaply made. For as much as it's being sold for, it seems like either the build quality should be brought up or the price should be brought down.

The old PS3 was a thing of beauty. It was a beast (even the slim model which I had). But when I got this one and set it up, it just wasn't as nice. The blue color is cool, but the whole unit felt light weight and plasticy. Not like it's predecessor. This one almost feels like it's not built to last, but I sure hope I'm wrong. I've had it about 3 months now and it's working fine. I'm hoping I get the many years out of it like I did from my PS3 slim. Time will tell.

So, it didn't take that long to arrive to me, with normal shipping and everything. But once I got it, it was boxed inside of a box and had all of the accessories and whatnot that I needed for it. Except for an HDMI cable, which I'm glad it did not come with because I don't have an HD tv or any flat screen or anything so, it would have gone to waste. I've had this for almost a week now and I have no problems with it! The way the disk part opens up is so cool ; v ;

If your feeling blue, then you should definitely buy this system. First of all, the hard drive size is more than enough for most people, with the exception of those who mostly purchase digital games/videos/etc. Second of all, Playstation 3 has plenty of games so if your looking for something to fill up your spare time, you cannot go wrong with it. Finally, it is limited edition. Sure, the only thing that makes it limited edition is the color, but that will definitely have somewhat of an impact on the price a few years from now if you decide to sell it for money towards a PS4. The only thing about this model that isn't really that big of a deal is that it does not have backwards compatibility for PS2 games. There are some PS2 games in the Playstation Store you can purchase, but it's not going to replace your PS2. Overall, no matter what color you go with, or which model you choose, your still playing on the best current-generation console.

I got this for my son and it has been a great game console, a console that is well-built and the price was hard to beat. I would recommend this to anyone.

This is my first PS3, and I have to say I'm impressed! The blue color really does look sleek, and the system works great. The main reason I bought this system was to play Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, but I found a great selection of other games as well. I've used this console for about a week, and along with having a greater selection of games, I prefer the style of the PS3 over the Xbox360 (which I was using previously).

Absolutely love this blue PS3. The blu ray player is fantastic, but I recommend purchasing a blu ray remote for an easier way to navigate the functions. I opted for this over the PS4 for the price, obviously, and because the design is aesthetically pleasing. I have it displayed proudly beside my Xbox 360 Slim so I can toggle from one to the other.

This wa a gift for my son. He loves it. He especially likes the fact it was blue(his fav. color) and it is the slimmer version from the orig. We also have the orig. PS3 witch only has 80gs but this 1 has 240! Such a plus!!

I was a bit sceptical of ordering this over amazon because its such a sensitive product. But! It got here on time, was packaged well, and works perfectly. I've had it for a couple weeks now and I have had no problems with it. Not to mention it is BEAUTIFUL.

Playstation is still working great a couple of months later, but the controller that came with it has already malfunctioned. When playing GTAV my character walks forward without me pressing anything. Other than that I'm satisfied.
