"PS3 - The best by Far"

Many people say that this is a console that is overpriced and one that doesn't deliver. In the news there were reports of how the ps3 did not sell out, but does this mean the console wasn't popular?
NO, it just means that Sony were able to meet the high demands of the population.
Playing this console is amazing and i dont know how people can say that it is not much better than the XBOX 360. The graphics are brilliant and with the right game (RESISTANCE) you can make people think that they are watching a movie.
The first game that i played on the console was F1. This game can be loads of fun. Getting used to the controls can take some time( i had an XBOX before) but it's only natural.
One problem i identified with this is that you can't connect it on to any tv, without changing the PS3 settings first. It would be better to have a switch or something on the side to change the tv input, SCART, HDMI etc.
If you got an XBOX 360 with the same features as the PS3, it would be more expensive than the ps3. The Blu-ray format is a great addition and the price is surprising considering the price of other Blu-ray players.
I think that this is THE best games console around, though if you are looking for a cheaper console i would buy the Wii....cheap but bundles of fun.
Adding up the price of the features and all of the additions, i am surprised it is actually so cheap...I would have expected it to be about £600.

    Good review, needs more info for higher ratings though, have a look round at similar reviews to get an idea of what works. These are a bit too out of my price range at the moment, have a PSP which gets frequent usage though! Thanks, Sarah xx
