PS3>XBOX> Yes!

Advantagesinternet browser, blu ray player

Disadvantagessmall memory

"...whether the Playstation 3 from Sony is better than the Xbox 360 from Microsoft or not. I believe the Playstation 3 is much better. The Playstation just offers a greater amount of brilliant features. The only downside people pick out with this Playstation is the fact that it only has a 60GB memory. I think that this is plenty enough if you are just playing games and you only use the memory for save data, and I've never really had a problem with memory ..." Read review

PS3 certainly won me!

AdvantagesGraphics, Sound, Free online play, Wireless controllers, Sixaxis

DisadvantagesSize, 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 PS3 was a lot more expensive initially, the online was free, but that wasn't the only reason I chose the PS3... The Graphics on the PS3 are truly amazing, ..." Read review

Not Just A Games Console; A Feature Packed Entertainment Thingy!

AdvantagesGood looking, Entertaining, Easy to use, lots of features.

Disadvantageson the expensive side, not as many 'exclusive' games as other consoles

"Almost two years ago Sony brought out two more versions of the PS3 because simply they weren't selling enough of the 80GB version, so out came the 40GB and 60GB; two consoles cheaper than the first model with lots of useless features removed. Some time later and this has done Sony no good at all, the PS3 is still the worst selling console. And I have no idea why.... Gaming - If you have a HD TV I would suggest you buy a HDMI cable ..."

PS3 i umm'd i arrr'd - it was worth it!!

AdvantagesSame Pads, versatile, Good looking!

DisadvantagesCost (but it IS worth it) Big name Games not here just yet

"...doubt the best part of Sony is the pads. Ergonomically they hit perfection with the PS2 pads so why would you change the way they look??? Of course on top of that we know they have made them wireless and six-axis controlled as well. *icing on the cake* If anyone is worried like i was, about the battery life of wireless pads, fear not. i charged the pads up by the USB cable on the day i got it and still havent had to recharge!! bonus! I cant ..." Read review

Sony Playstation 3 80GB Review with images

AdvantagesLots of games available, brilliant graphics, looks brilliant, blu-ray, 1080p, free online, wi-fi

Disadvantagesfinger print magnet, very easy to scratch, lack of support for ps2 play,

"== INTRODUCTION == When PS3 was first released it sales were stupidly low due to high prices and no games to make it a big title. But due to many(A LOT) of console updates and patches the ps3 bugs where founded and destroyed and at the same time the £££'s were dropping off it like mosquito's in alaska :) === VALUE FOR MONEY === So you can probably pick up an 80GB console new for about £300 if you get a bargain and about £150 used. Despite having ..." Read review

The media centre of my world

AdvantagesDoes everything you imagine

DisadvantagesDoes not play mkv files

"...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 trusted Sony to make something special. This Playstation came with a 60GB hard drive instead of the normal 8MB detachable memory cards that would go missing so this is a great step up in terms of user ability and in terms of memory space! What was a great step up was having access to the Internet on the Playstation ..." Read review

A good console, but seems to be losing features monthly.

AdvantagesPowerful console, good features, some cool exclusives, decent online services.

DisadvantagesSeems to be losing features recently, presumably to reduce cost of making the console.

"...in the PS community that Sony may remove even more features from the PS3, such as removing PS2 compatability for older consoles as well. Although this is unlikely. ..." Read review

PS3 Console

AdvantagesAmazing graphics and gaming capabilities, looks great

Disadvantagesquite a high price

"...technical specification, from the US sony website, are at the bottom) The console looks superb, it is quite large but has a shiny black body and a sleek silver finish, the body is curved slightly and really looks good. However the body does easily attract dust and scratches so you will need to clean it regularly. The "PS" logo on the front (above the disk drive) can be rotated so that t is the right way up whether the console is horizontal or vertical. ..." Read review

Playstation 3 80GB

AdvantagesPowerful - Good Looking - Easy to setup - Loads of games

DisadvantagesQuite heavy and bulky - Slow install and download times

"Pretty much all of the versions are the same - but this is for the 80GB version. This is my opinion but after having the 40GB version - I do feel that this system stays cooler than the 40GB version. The console is very heavy - and it is quite bulky - but it doesn't really matter. It looks very stylish - but it is basically a fingerprint magnet - the marks can be wiped off - but it is a bit annoying. Setup - When you first attempt to setup the ..." Read review

Huge potential, not hit yet

AdvantagesQuiet, powerful, Bluray, stylish

DisadvantagesNo 'killer' PS3 only games yet, poor online play so far

"...functionality. I have a 40" Sony LCD screen and the thing looks great through an HDMI lead, whether I am looking at photos, watching a game trailer or watching a film. I have also been impressed with the Bluray capabilities of the machine. I haven't seen the other HD format in action so can't compare - but the sound an picture are excellent, so much so that I always check whether a title is available on Bluray before renting/buying. Having said ..." Read review

PS3 - the new gamer ... pc?

Advantagesfully-functional media center & Blu-Ray player, and LINUX!!!

Disadvantagesexpensive / limited number of available games

"...interfere with this new feature, Sony disabled the old "rumble" feature on the controllers. This helped make the game feel a little more real, but I would rather be able to control certain moves with the controller than have it just shake in my hand, anyways. Response times were fantastic - you could switch weapons in the heat of combat, you could jump, roll, and move all over the place and the game doesn't slow down, even when there are quite ..."

Best Games Console. Hands Down

AdvantagesBluRay, Amazing Graphics, Free to play online

DisadvantagesNone

"...360 and of course the Sony Playstation 3. Lets not talk about the Wii here as it is aimed at a slightly different market, and if you are looking for serious gaming then you would have to choose between the Xbox and the Playstation. Now lets make it clear that the Xbox has sold more worldwide, but bare in mind it has always been cheaper. Your looking at around a hundred pounds cheaper than the Playstation. What I have to mention is that Xbox you ..." Read review

The PlayStation 3 is glorious!

AdvantagesCheap Blu-Ray player, stunning visuals, free online gameplay, fun tilt controls, excellent multimedia playback.

DisadvantagesExpensive, lack of PS2 game playback.

"...feel, it seems as though Sony may have pulled it all together very well indeed. The price remains an issue, but if you can afford one then I would certainly recommend this over all the next-gen consoles. ..." Read review

Sony is back with a bang! Review with images

Advantages slick piece of hardware, great games, so much to do!

Disadvantages not cheap!

"...it seems as though finally Sony have caught on to the fact that the outer design of the console is as important to a gamer as the leather interior is to a 2006 Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Gone is that ugly block-like design and in comes a smooth surfaced console with curved edges just begging you to caress them. Much like it's predecessor, the PS3 can be placed vertically or horizontally on a surface but it really shouldn't be tucked away into a ..." Read review

Playstation 3 Vs XBox 360

AdvantagesPS3 is more cost effective

DisadvantagesPS3 has less games at present, but this will change

"Ok the playstation 3 is expensive weighing in at £425 however if you compare just the Basic Hardware with say XBox 360, you will be surprised how cost effective it is. For example the XBox 360 Premium console, has 20 GB hard drive, headset, wireless controller, AV cable. And costs around £279, if you can wait until 24th August 07 Microsoft have planned to release the Xbox 360 Elite The Xbox 360 Elite is an All new Super Sexy Black, with ..." Read review
