Top customer reviews
I only have two games for it at the moment, Metal Gear Solid 4 and Resident Evil 5. Both are great games in them selves and one of the reasons why I wanted a PS3. I don't have any blu-ray movies yet to test out the blu-ray player. I will update when I manage to test it out.
Playstation has gone a long way since the original Playstation came out. I was not to surprise to learn that PS3 is not backwards compatible with some PSone games and no PS2 games will work in it either. Since I have a PS2 hooked-up to an extra TV this is not a big deal to me, I am more interested in the newer games at the moment any ways.
The reason why I chosen a PS3 over a Xbox 360 is because Xbox 360 charges a monthly fee to watch Netflix (A deal breaker) and to play online, other then that I would also have one of them.
*Update Blu-Rays & Game Collection
I have tested some Blu-rays and have finally managed to update this review. Blu-rays play awesome on the PS3, it plays them similar to my LG BD550 player. Blu-rays are a huge improvement over DVDs, I have a small collection of Blu-rays but it will grow with time. I have the original Halloween on blu-ray (Which is the best that it has very looked) and have pre-ordered H20 and Halloween 6 (Can't wait to see how they look on Blu-ray).
My PS3 collection has grew as well, I now have added to my collection Silent Hill Homecoming, Need for Speed Undercover, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, and split/second. All these games are great in High-Def, I have also just ordered infamous and can't wait for it to come.
Do not buy from NEW market place sellers who will show you very cheap prices for consoles like these. Check their history and please do not try your luck. I did and I failed. Luckily Amazon was there to help me and got my refund. But it was a pain to wait for never coming item for 1 month then to file claims.
Buy from Amazon / Best rated seller if you are going for a expensive item.
Now the PS3.
In one word - Awesome
It has everything you expect from a console and more. Looks very good and reliable. I am playing Mortal Kombat 9 on it and it is mind blowing. I am a hardcore gamer and I am so happy I made the right choice.
Controllers / Move stuff everything works great and the battery life is awesome. It is still full after 1 week of initial charge. That is Wow.. unless the indicator is cheating me :)
I would love to thank Amazon for helping me during my crisis with the scam seller and gave me free shipping on the new purchase.
Will update this in future.
Go for it if you are having mixed feelings whether to buy a PS3 or Xbox.... This will not fail you.
