Multimedia device, Blu-Ray

Power consumption, loud, ugly

The Sony Playstation 3 is a machine that does many things well, and one of them is raising the price of my electricity bill. The original intent was simple. Buy a machine that would serve multiple purposes within my household so that I wouldn’t have to have my living room cluttered with a...

Right, before I go any further, let's get a few things clear. Yes, there is a newer, slim line version of the PS3 available with a larger hard drive, but this newer version won't play PS2 games. Having a reasonably large collection of PS2 games, including my beloved Final Fantasy titles, I wanted...

No HD cable in the box, no rumble, limited BC

The PlayStation 3 is Sonys third generation of home consoles. After the stellar performance of the PlayStation 2 and launch of its two rivals the Wii and Xbox 360 the PS3 has a tough act to follow. Sony are clearly not worried as according to their marketing the PS3 is a "supercomputer" and is...

“THE BEGINNING OF A NEW ERA!”

published 24/03/2007

The best gaming console known to man!

A hefty price (although it is worth it)!

Playstation 3. The greatest gaming machine known to man. Those two sentences describe the PS3. If I wanted to, I could just leave the review at this point and post it as it is, because the two sentences I started with should be enough to convince you to buy a PS3. But in case that those two...

I have a rather annoying habit. I tend to collect games consoles. The problem with this is threefold. It's expensive, Buggy (she who must be obeyed, but rarely is) doesn't like the fact that the bedroom where they all live and we sleep has more lights flashing than the average xmas tree and the...

Yeah, I know. More expensive than the Xbox 360 and wii combined. Yes, I know, all the "clued up" people seem to hate it. But I don't care. I bought a PS3. Sue me. Alternatively, understand that everyone's opinion is only that - opinion. The main reason I parted with £464.99 (it came with 2 games...

blu-ray player, HD player & console in one!

Having tried the xbox 360 for 5 months, finding it cr*p & getting my money back-due to numerous faults- I bought a ps3.... If the wii hadn't been out of stock everywhere within 35 miles of where I live, I would have got that- merely because I wanted a new console, I needed the excitement, and the...

Almost as good as a PC

Quite a few features still need adding

Playstation 3 and the reason to buy I have never bought a games console in my life so this was very much a step into the unknown for me. I didn't see the point of a games console when I could do everything I needed to do on a PC including playing games. It was only after very careful...

Size, Price, Not able to play PS2 games

When I went to buy my PS3 at the end of 2008, I was torn between buying the PS3 and the Xbox 360. I must admit one of the biggest factors between the 2 was the price, the Xbox's price tag was a lot lower, but I wanted online play and online cost a LOT in the long run with the Xbox. However the...

INTRODUCTION When PS3 was first released it sales were stupidly low due to high prices and no games to make it a big title.

Well in this review i'll compare the PS3 with the X360 and the Nintendo Wii. Media Features: (Music Player, Video Player ect.) Well on the Music front, the Wii is non-existant, as far as i know, incapable of playing music. The Xbox 360 has the best music player, with nice visualizations, and an...

I got the Playstation 3 when it first came out and even then I was not aware of its capabilities. I have always bought Playstations and they had the best games and graphics of its time. Also Sony pioneered being able to play DVDs in a game console before XBOX did it first so for this reason, I...
