Good: Graphics, games, controller, HD Support, user up gradable Hard drive,
Bad: Bigger than a grill, ps2 support removed, faulty WIFi cards that cause very slow speeds, otherOS removed
Comment: Its a good console and the most reliable of the "Fat" models, but heavy as a TV and bigger than a mid range grill. Regardless, it runs circles around the 360 in terms of reliability and destroys the Wii in graphics. It even has free online which is a plus.
Good: Good games, multifunctional and a very asthetically pleasing interface. Graphics are amazing and gameplay is very clear.
Bad: Updates take very long, once completed do not seem to be worth the wait.
Comment: Overall very good console. Mostly, fast, swift and a operational power house.
Comment: WTF sony you used to be cool with the ps2 blown it on ps3
Good: free online
Comment: looks terrible and weighs over 5 kg ... enough to kill a bear with. 360 ftw
Good: Excellent BluRay player & Free PSN network
Bad: Fingerprint magnet
Comment: I love my ps3, the touch sensitive eject & power switches could be more responsive. I really hate the dull finish on the ps3 slim, id rather have the fingerprint magnet!
Good: plays good games
Bad: too heavy
Comment: Nice peice of kit :)
Good: great games,graphics services all round amazing
Comment: great product the games have now gone beyond any other console aswell as the graphics. its an absolutely outstanding product and is the entertainment system on the market
Bad: xbox 360
Good: The Looks, Quietness, Blu-Ray 1080p, Games, GT5, Uncharted 2 etc.
Bad: nothing really
Comment: i have a feeling the review which said abysmal was written by and xbox 360 fanboy or a wii fanboy who just cannot understand the superiority of this console to theirs, i have owned all 3 and i say the ps3 kills them all, the free online with dedicated servers, the innovation, the simply astounding graphics in true 1.3 hdmi unlike xbox's 1.2
it has 12 cores at 3.2 Ghz and xbox has 2 at 2.6Ghz and simply overwhelms the xbox with pure power, it also has home a great place to chill with your freinds, and now recently at e3 they showed a wii-like motion sensor using the PS Eye to capture the movement, once again playstation have truly thrashed their rivals, also if you install linux OS you have a super computer.
so not only do you get a games console you get a blu-ray player (which on its own costs around 250 quid) and a super computer (a quad core proceesor costs around 400 quid so how much do you think 12 cores would cost?!) so really, altough it is more expensive than its rivals, its the bargain of the century.
i would advise everyone to buy this console, it has somethign for everyone
