It goes by the name of Slim Review with images

AdvantagesGreat games and blu-ray playback

DisadvantagesNot enough USB ports, I prefer the Xbox controller

"...but i've stuck with my Sony Playstation 3 Slim for a long time now. The Playstation 3 (from here on in referred to as the 'PS3') wowed gamers when it was first released back in 2007 - but its initial incarnation was oversized and power-hungry. Sony rectified the problem with 2009's PS3 'Slim', a smaller and arguably sexier device. The Slim isn't just a cosmetic update however, it significantly ups the hard drive capacity, and is better for the environment ..." Read review

PS3 on a second diet Review with images

AdvantagesPower efficient, quieter, slimmer, lighter

DisadvantagesFeels cheap, stupid corrugated lid, laggy Store

"...no longer have warranty so Sony won’t do anything about it, and having it fixed at the local shop was out of the question because they demanded I pay £80 for them to diagnose and repair the beast. 80? I would rather spend it on petrol. So, after many days of deliberation, I decided to buy one of the new Super Slim Playstation 3’s - hence forth to be called the SSPS3 in this review -because they are small, slim, quiet, and my wife was getting annoyed ..."

The PS3 Slim Comparison

AdvantagesIt's smaller, lighter and draws less power. Upgraded storage space.

DisadvantagesIt doesn't look as sexy as it used to. Still no browser filtering.

"...I've a bit of a Sony fetish. When it comes to consoles the PS3 is in my list of must haves. The problem is I've already destroyed two of them. One got launched down the stairs, and the other had a bottle of wine poured over it (long story, don't ask). This meant that I was banned from buying another console for the same to happen. Shushy, my wife, however wanted a Wii. I'd previously owned a Wii and sold it due to lack of use, but I saw a possible ..." Read review

PlayStation 3 Slim

AdvantagesFree Online Play, Nice Design, Exclusive Games, Feature Packed

DisadvantagesNone

"I have recently sold my 60GB PS3 'Phat' and replaced it with a 250GB Slim model and so far I couldn't be happier with it. == ~~~ Games ~~~ == For 99% of people this will be the key area that the console has to perform in - and it does. I've played a wide variety of games on it since I bought it including FIFA, Call of Duty, Assassins Creed 2 and various demos. All of these play very smoothly and the graphics are of a very good high-definition ..." Read review

The PS3 Slim is the best console out there.

AdvantagesBlu Ray player, good graphics, very reliable, great accessories, so many features.

DisadvantagesFreezes a bit.

"...the fact you get a Sony Blu Ray player inside it, makes it much better value for the money. It's actually quite slim now, it's very good looking with 2 physical buttons on the front, one for the power, one to eject the disc, which seems to work a lot better than the touch sensitive ones on the Original PS3. The accessories for it are very good, the official headset works well off the bluetooth (Even though you don't get the headset in the box) And ..." Read review

Hours Of Fun!

AdvantagesHours of fun, many features, free online gaming

Disadvantagesoccasionally disconnects

"...PS3 stands for PlayStation 3. Sony also made the PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2, as well as the PSP or PlayStation Portable. There are rumours that Sony is working on the PlayStation 4 in order to keep up with its competitors. Sony’s main competitors are Nintendo and Microsoft who make the Wii and Xbox Series respectively. ==What's In The Box?== The box itself is smaller than you would expect it to be. It is a white box with a picture of the PS3 ..." Read review

PS3 slim

AdvantagesBlu-ray, free online, nice extras like vidzone & iplayer. Almost silent operation

DisadvantagesRubbish controller, still expensive, online nowhere near as good as xbox live

"...into Bill Gates' pocket. Maybe Sony are just spreading their budget for on-line too thinly in order to be the machine that offers everything but not quite managing to! Reliability-this one will have to go to the playstation, every console I've owned still works(Mega-Drive, Sega Saturn, Dreamcast{It's still a fantastic system}, Xbox, Wii, Xbox360 & now the PS3), ( Altho the dreamcast did need a very minor repair which I did myself after watching how ..."

Ps3 Slim, a worthy upgrade?

AdvantagesGreat games, Reliable and powerful system with lots of other features

Disadvantagesonly 2 usb slots now and no backward compatability.

"The Sony Ps3 is one of the 4 major gaming consoles that dominate the market at the moment. (wii, ps3,Xbox 360 and the Pc) The upgrade slims down the ps3 and makes it less power hungry and have added proper buttons which are much quicker to use than the touch operation ones before on the ps3 fat. They must have crammed all the hardware in it because it is thinner not as long, and not as wide making it almost a square shape. This is handy because the ..." Read review

It's Playstation Diet... But somehow it still tastes good.

Advantagesvery user friendly, a good improvement on the original

Disadvantagesdownload speeds can be slow

"Hi all, i figured that i enjoy reviewing games a lot, but what about the consoles themselves, i'm going to take a look at one of my personal favorites, The Playstation3, this baby's right up there on my list with the original Nintendo entertainment system. I'm just going to say now that i'm going to be as non bias as possible here, although i love the PS3 i'm not going to make a single comparison, I love all games consoles equally! So any way, this ..." Read review

Best Console Ever

Advantagesamazing graphics, simple to use

Disadvantagesa bit pricey!

"I bought my PlayStation 3 recently after being pestered by friends to buy one ever since it was released. Up until now I have avoided buying one as I am not usually that much of a gamer and I have always preferred the old Playstation one to any of the newer ones as I could not get on with the controllers for the newer ones. So, finally my friends talked me into buying one, and seeing as I could afford it I thought why not. It cost me £250 for a ..." Read review

A Phenomenal Console

AdvantagesCan Play Blu-Ray discs, Larger Hard drive, HD,

DisadvantagesCannot Play Playstation 2 Games

"I really enjoy using my Playstation 3 slim for many reasons. There are lots of ways to connect it to a tv but the best is a HDMI cable which brings the screen to life. With a HDMI cable plugged in the picture is so much clearer and the sound is great too. It has built in Wi-Fi and also has USB ports to plug accesories in ang to charge the controller, which is wireless and can be played from quite a distance away. The range of games is incredible ..."

PS3 Slim - Ultimate Gaming Console

AdvantagesBLURAY PLAYER 1080p - LARGE EXPANDABLE HDD - MASSIVE SOFTWARE LIBRARY

DisadvantagesEXPENSIVE - WON'T PLAY PS2 GAMES - EXTRA CONTROLLERS COST £35-£40

"I'm a Geek, and it takes more than just hype, and other peoples sycophantic hysteria to get me even slightly excited about "the latest craze" But it turns out, this time, they were right. Without a doubt, the Greatest Electronic Entertainment Device of the 21st century so far, is the PLAYSTATION 3 SLIM It's not cheap, but by 'eck it's worth the dosh. Even if you don't like computer games, or computers for that matter, this might just be the ..." Read review

playstation 3 slim: the facts!

Advantagesvery powerful, multifunctional console

DisadvantagesNo real price cut

"...that could start to make sony some profit because up to this is due to the vast majority of PS3 sold so far (around 24 million of them) have been sold at a loss. However, new manufacturing procedures have changed this recently, and a redesigned 45nm Cell processor along with other similarly small and power efficient components have reduced Sony's manufacturing costs significantly. So what do you get: You get the console, a DualShock 3 controller, ..." Read review

PS3 is still the most powerful gaming system.

AdvantagesStunning graphics, Blu Ray player, Music player and Internet, Easy to use and does everything.

DisadvantagesA still high price point, online play could be better.

"This isn't a review comparing 360 to PS3 etc. I'm reviewing this as if the 360 doesn't exist. I have owned this PS3 for over a year now. It's been one hell of a console since then. First off, it's extremely reliable. I've been playing it for hours a week, and it never crashes, never overheats and works perfectly. First off, the graphics. Are the best graphics to hit a console, people may argue, but if you look at the specs. It's undeniable fact. The ..." Read review
