Much improved machine, having used the old for over 4 years we thought it was time for the family to enjoy an upgrade. The kids love it but more importantly we get to play together as a family. A perfect present for any young boy or adolescent! (read more)

From the 2 this is a much better Playstation, the graphics have improved significantly, and so has the speed and precision. I love the fact that I can use it as a home network and have everything in the house connected to it, television, computer you name it, and everything is controlled from there, the space it has is more than enough to hold my music and movies, kids use it, wife uses it, and I use it, a great complete tool that functions as a game console as well as a home hub.

Ok, I have bought 3 brand new PS3's over this last few years and everyone of them have broken down as the warranty has run out... This time my PS3 is 6 months out of warranty, and Sony PS3 tried to sell me some remanufactured console for £110. If I am forking out a few hundred quid for anything I expect it to last for a few years. That's my 3rd now so I do think Sony are taking the P. Now they want my broken PS3 for nothing yet charge me for some other dud so it can break down just over... (read more)

my time with the playstation 3 has been fantastic. when this amazing game is pared with the sony exclusive games such as the well acclaimed uncharted series, great visual overwhelm you, and you are given one of the most beautiful visual displays ever experienced. one of the many great things about the playstation would be its easy to learn controls, contributed with the games. also while playing u will encounter a very few amount of glitches, because of the game or system itself. all in all...

I have had a Playstation 3 for about 2 years now. It is a great system to own and have! I play it about 10 hours a week and love every bit of it. I would highly recommend this system over a Xbox 360. Plus you don't even have to pay to play online! The system itself can take quite a beating as well! Hope this review helped!!! (read more)

I brought a ps3 3 days ago and still have not played it as every time i go to play it has some sort of update , first the console updated which took some time so no joy that day, day 2 put the game in and message on screen to said to play this game it must be installed on hard drive which i thought would be quick how wrong, day 3 im sitting waiting to play as the game has 8 updates before i play what a joke , now i remember why I sold my first ps3 and stock with the 360, much better for...

I bought the slim ps3 around a year ago in a package with FIFA12. I'm mightily impressed by all the extras you get with this, such as the blu-ray player (which has changed my life!) and the web video services like iPlayer and 4OD. I heard some people complain about the level of noise the machine makes when it's running, but to be honest I hardly hear it when the TV's sound is on. Since I bought I soundbar for my TV (which I would also recommend) I hardly hear the playstation at all. The... (read more)

Great system, not a bargain but great bang for the buck. BUT system lasted 2 days beyond it's warranty before bricking beyond repair after very modest number of hours use. Before it died, graphics and overall usability were great.
Would recommend PS3, but only with an extended warranty. Looking at google, reliability and build quality comes across as being little better than the infamouus XBOX360 (which I also owned for 1 year 3 months before it ate a disc and RROD'd simultaneously- maybe... (read more)

An amazing console with its amazing graphics and you can go wireless on the console to go on the internet. This games console might be a pretty penny but is a great looking, playing console. This console is better on the blue ray one as has great graphics. It also has a loads of internal memory so no need to pay for more items. I rate this a 9/10 as can buy and you have everything you need to just plug in and play! (read more)

I would love to say that the PS3 is the bain of my life, simply because I have to watch my husband play Pro Evo on it, whenever he has a spare minute. But to be fair that is Pro Evo's fault, and not the PS3's. I do think that the blu-ray aspect of the console is great, saves us buying a seperate blu-ray player. The console is a bit pricey, but so far we haven't had any major problems with it. Fingers crossed! Another good thing about it, is that it looks good! We have the first version,... (read more)

over all a good machine, handles all the graphics as aspected from Sony. the fan on the unit is not noisy when on and if you buy the wireless hands sets you will find they last for hours and hours on just one charge. If using the ps3 for dvd/blue ray make sure you get yourself a remote control, much better than fiddling around with the joy stick thing. Only gripe is DOWNLOAD TIMES, any upgrade of downloads is a nightmare , it takes ages es (read more)

For an exstensive time after it was initially released, the Playstation 3 was famed for being the best console to have ever been available on the market, far exceeding the Microsoft's XBOX360. Now that I have experienced playing with the console for over a year, though, I can testify to it being much less than it should have been.
Positively, Sony can be proud of the excellent graphics performance achieved by the systems hardware as well as some of the feature improvements ontop of the... (read more)

The Sony Playstation 3 is a brilliant console. Great value for a Blu-Ray player (optical cable and 1080p), nevermind the additional gaming service. PSN is free, and includes demos as well as old PS1 classics (e.g. Worms) and new games (Wipeout HD).
A very good range of games. And with the new exclusive GTA came due to come out soon, it sets to be an XBOX360 beater in all areas. (read more)

Its the best console ive ever owned, anyone debating wether to get an xbox or ps3, get a ps3. I sold my xbox to get my ps3, and ive never regretted it. The graphics are brilliant, the games are brilliant and the features are great. Psn (playstation network), is free, unlike xbox live. And you can also surf the web on it for free. You can buy games of playstation store, download demos (for free) and also download add ons, trailers etc etc.... The ps3 has built in blue-ray, built in bluetooth.... (read more)

Got the Sony playstation 80GB model with choice of 2 games, 2 Blu Ray movies, and HDMI cable for £299 from HMV. Looks amazing standing there with it's glossy finish and no noise from the fan at all (unlike my X-Box 360 Elite).
Firstly played The Dark Knight and quality / effects were so stunning I had to stop playing it and call some friends round to enjoy it. Secondly played Tiger Woods '09 and again was blown away by the amazing graphics.
The Blu Ray functionality has lots of options and... (read more)

Sony Playstation 3, great games, no need to buy add ons (it has built in WI-fi, bluetooth, Bluray player!!!, USB, Web browser and many more). Quite stylish. I paid £425 for mine when it launched. Worth every penny, the only bad thing i can think of is that is costs more than other consoles but it is definitely worth it. A bluray player in shops would cost at least £200 on it's own and the ps3 has one built in with tons of other features for only £300. (read more)

Overall, the console is great and like i said the graphics are great and if it's on HD you would really go mad. The best game i like on ps3 in 50 Cent: Blood On The Sand, you have to buy it, it so coooooooooooool. The bone crunching moves are great and the weponary is sick and the graphics on HD are just perfect and i would give the ps3 8.9/10 it's great. (read more)

This console is what future consoles should be like, an all in one entertainment system with more capabilities than the other 2 major consoles. If the 360 had all these features I may have bought it before the PS3, IMO the next generation of consoles should have new breakthrough technology to set them more apart from PC game machines.

This games console is a great console as the console is really quiet and can use the internet free if have a wireless router.
You can also parental block if need to and the games consoles controllers are wireless and no wires needed accept for a charger.
The bad points are
The games console can overheat occasionally and console goes off. and can only play Blue Ray type discs on the newest Playstation 3 type. Also the controllers need charging alot! (read more)

I have owned my 60gb PS3 since the day of release and love it. I'm on it most day either gaming, watching movies or downloading PSP games & demos. The PS3 is so user freindly and has so much more to offer than any other. The 60gb will play most PS2 and PS1 games but unfortunatly the later 40gb and 80gb won't (they say a update should sort this out at xmas).

Online gaming is free and you can put different operating software on it such as (Linux yellow dog). You can connect keyboards and mouse to it via USB.

Had some spare cash last year so got a PS3. Already had a 360 so it was just a luxury really, not bought to replace the Xbox. It's ok I suppose, only use it to play the odd PS3 specific game and watch movies. If a game is out on both formats I'll always get it for 360. PS3 is rubbish online. You can't talk to anyone so what's the point? For something that came out a year after the 360, the online capabilities are a joke. I know some people just want to play online with no interaction but... (read more)
