After college I settled down, got married, had children, and stopped playing games for a while. Just 2 years ago I picked up a wii "for the family" and have enjoyed it since. Mario Galaxy 2 looks great and is a great deal of fun to play...and there are other great games on the wii as well. For the record, I'd never played a PS2, PS3 or Xbox.
Don't get me wrong, the wii is great. There are a number of wii exclusives that I love. But I was still wanting something with some better graphics/games and thus began my research between xbox and ps3. Both are great systems! This was going to be harder than I thought. In the end, I felt like the game selection for the PS3 slightly outweighed that of the xbox for the family. The PS3 has LittleBigPlanet and Ratchet and Clank, as well as Uncharted/Metal Gear/etc. And while the xbox has some great exclusives as well, I was leaning toward the PS3.
When I saw that the PS3 slim increased the hard drive from 120gb to 160gb I finally bit the bullet. I was wanting to get a blu-ray player sometime so I figured I'd just get the ps3. Just set it up last night. Set-up was a breeze and the graphics, wow, they truly are stunning. As I said, the wii is great and I'll continue to play and enjoy wii-exclusive games, but compared to xbox/ps3 graphics, there really is no comparison. I'm really looking forward to NHL 11 and Gran Turismo 5 (as the wii is lacking in these types of games).
Overall, I'm thrilled with the PS3. I'm looking forward to getting my music and other media files loaded onto it and finally beginning the world of blu-ray movies and advanced gaming. While I do wish I could load files to it from a device formatted to something other than FAT, it's certainly not a deal-breaker. The PS3 works as it should, set-up is simple, has free online, great exclusive games, and so much more. Whether or not it's the right choice for you is up for you to decide. The Xbox is also a great system, but I'm happy with my final decision.
Note: Extras you may need:
- Extra controller, PS3 blu-ray remote control, and an hdmi or set of component cables depending on your video capabilities.
This version is notable for its reliability, compared to the release build (I had two of those fail, within 1.5 years each; finally took advantage of the Microsoft trade-in program to buy an Xbox One, if only to not deal with the headaches of another potential phatty yellow-light-of-death failure).
The cheese-grater ps3 is the cheapest and most current build, but it's noisy AF. I'd steer clear of it, if at all possible.
I'm surprised they still make this version. I'm in the market for getting a relative a gift, and was looking for cheap, multi-function blu-ray players.
You gotta love the ps3 too for its FREE access to online multiplayer for its library of games. That is a one-time gift from Sony. I only wish they had continued on with that program for the ps4, and not borrowed a page from Microsoft (you now have to buy PS Plus in order to have access to most online MP games, except for F2P titles). I mean, alot of adults don't have buckets of free time to play, so I feel like it's a bit of a scam, even if they're giving out free games with the purchase of PS Plus per month. Anyhow, I digress.
The ps3 doesn't have as huge a library as the ps2, but...there's no lack of fun things to play. Hell, you could buy COD4, and as hacked as the lobbies are these days probably, at least you can play that endlessly. There's still plenty of joy to be had in Demon's Souls or Dark Souls...The Last of Us has excellent SP + MP as well. This *is* the definitive console with which I had my first experiences with online MP, and COD4 is like a first love.
The ps3 is a multimedia, game-playing beast with free online MP. That's all you really need to know. Enjoy!
It was still full of pictures and games that were loaded on it. It was not erased before it was sold!
So I hope the previous owner will not be missing photos and etc. cause it is getting erased!
Also you can play all ps3 games and access playstation store.
The ps3 is slower than the ps4 and many of the game servers are slower on ps3 than ps4 but that is just because the ps4 has a faster cpu and more memory. Also a lot more is being put into the ps4 slowly phasing out the ps3 but this is still a Great console to play games and watch movies on.
I find now that ps4 has more games and now they are better we don't use the ps3 as much.. however.. if you are buying a ps3
you should buy the super-slim model 500gb so you can store a lot of games and downloads.
You can store movies and pictures as well.
A ps3 and ps4 is just like a computer in case you didn't know it will play netflix and amazon prime movies.
