PlayStation 3 120GB System
PS3 is the system to go for
Remember the whole console war about the 360 and PS3? Now it's the Xbox One and PS4. But this is the console that started it all, the one that brought PlayStation into a whole new way. It works perfectly, and it's quality is amazing. I don't know what material the controller or console is made out of, but it feels soft and comfortable. There are so many great exclusives such as Gran Turismo, Killzone, and even more. This console is a very good console, and I totally recommend a purchase.
Best Console Of This Generation!
Fanboy rants aside, let me point out that I was always on Xbox up until September of 2011... I owned the original Xbox & a 360 Elite which I still have! I made the switch mainly for BF3 & for friends that had PS3 & once I got on, I never looked back! It can do EVERYTHING the Xbox 360 can do, minus one thing. Party Chat, for me however, that isn't that big a deal. A lot of the features Xbox has NOW, the PS3 has had for years! Playing online multiplayer is 100% FREE unlike on Xbox. The PS3 is the #1 used device to stream Netflix. Nextflix said that, not me... TONS of AWESOME exclusives. Subscription service called PlayStation Plus gives you 18 FREE games every month & we're talking GOOD games... AAA Games! Exclusive Beta access, major discounts on games, game trials & more. Cool thing is, it's completely optional & not having doesn't effect your gaming ability in any way! PlayStation Home is like a Sims MMO where you can get online with people from all around the world, chat, meet new people, create a party & launch games with those parties, buy a house & furnish it, buy new clothes & gear for you Avatar, play games, watch movies. Pretty much real life, but a video game. Great for teens! The PlayStation 3 is the clear cut winner for this generation of consoles in my book & if you're looking to buy one, I hope my little review here, helps shed some light on why it's such an awesome choice!
get the wii instead.
the ps3 is awful. and so are the games. there are NO MARIO GAMES AND ONLY 3 SONIC GAMES, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2006, A.K.A "ONE OF THE WORST SONIC GAMES EVER" IS ONE OF THEM. so if you do not buy that one then you will only have sonic unleashed, and sonic generations. the wii has mario games, sonic games, you can make miis and store them in the mii plaza and use these miis in games, you can look at the weather around the world. can the ps3 do any of those things? NO. but the wii can do all of those things. and all of the games are boring for kids (6-20). just get the wii it's games are better, it can do all of the things that I mentioned before and it has MARIO AND SONIC GAMES.
this did good for me.
it was great, it performed well plus it never over heats. I think anyone who buys this will be satified.
Good But Not At All The Best
At first the playstation was ok. Then playstion was hacked and was offline for a bit. Never dropped the controller yet the back right bumper somehow popped off :( Online play is sort of laggy which is to be expected as its free. Updates take about a lifetime and happen frequently. I hate that! If your looking for something that just works for the most part playstation 3 will do. About a month ago I switched to Xbox 360. OMG friggin amazing! Private chats and partys. Lol and no my controller hasnt broke. Only dropped it once. Very seldom does it have lag. If it does its cuz of another players bad internet conection. You have to pay for Xbox Live but its totally worth it. So much more content and applications. Graphics are in hd if the game itself supports it which most do not. I am quite happy with this one. Ive always hated Xbox but now it seems playstation needs to step up its game. Never switching back tho. Oh and another thing. I have to say that if your really into gaming then this beauty is for you......and me lol
great system, aside from no ps2 backward compatabi
i bought this system brand new back when they first came out with slims, at the time i didnt know they couldnt play ps2 games, spent hours playing games and downloading things, paying ps1 games, listening to music, watching movies, etc. it has never given me any trouble, never had ylod or anything, but extremely bummed my 300 bucks (thats what it costed for a 120 gb console at the time) didnt allow me to play ps2 games too, but not too long ago they started making ps2 collections on discs and putting ps2 games for download on psn so in a way, now you can play SOME ps2 games, a very slim selection, if you got the right copy of twisted metal, you can download twisted metal black, and psn has games like the god of war, devil may cry, and jak and daxter series available for hd download, while they have games like bloodrayne, maximo ghosts to glory and some others for download as original ps2 games. maybe eventually theyll upload all ps2 games for availability.
Hard drive breaks easily
I barely had this system for 2 years (not even) and without warning my hard drive breaks and all my memory is lost! My ps3 wasn't even acting slow or unusal but suddenly my game froze for awhile so i was forced to turn it off. Now I can't even turn it on because when i do the system says we can will fix evrthing once its finished loading. But when it finishs the system just keeps reloading the same thing! Now I'll probably get less money to turn it in!!!! >:( I took good care of my system too but Sony obvisously didn't make good system!!! DON'T BUY IT WITHOUT A LONG WARRANTY!!!!!!!!!
Wouldn't be a gamer without it!
Look let me get straight to the point about this console, its great. No,wait not great what's the word EPIC!!!! Yes, EPIC. Look the Playstation 3 has the best 1st party games in the industry. What can compare to the likes of Uncharted or inFAMOUS. Nothing,yes nothing. Also this systems graphics are unmatched. Now, I'm not saying that the other consoles graphics suck I'm merely saying that they're a bit better. Another thing that this baby has to offer is its Blu-Ray player. The best part about this is that a Blu-Ray disk (PS3) can hold more memory than an HD DVD (Xbox 360). That is why this is such a EPIC system.
Great system but what is up ?
Well i have been playing xbox since i was kid. and between if i had to pick i like the xbox better. but i aslo love my ps3. alot of fun works great good games. free internet. really not many complaints. but there is one i will share. what makes me mad is we put so much money into these. and then the make it so it can't run ps2 games. its stupid not fare. and we all know why the did it so the can get more money. but if you look at it the have plenty of money more then enough. a day needs come when we matter. not just money. we make it so the can do this stuff and the take away something that could be amazing. same with xbox the take xbox games away. then the want you to buy there new system. all i am saying is i just wish the could for once just. keep it were it is at ! i am not turning any of them down. i have been playing games since i was child love them and will continue to play them. and hope that i will be able to afford what the bring next
BEST SYSTEM FOR YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i have owned this system for over a year now and im very pleased with my hdmi and battlefield 3 and crysis 2 and my other good games the graphics blew me away. Plus its even cheaper than the 250gb xbox 360 slim I would definetely reccomend this product for any hardcore gamers and plus its free with a built in blueray player and free online play i can gurantee you'll not be dissapointed.
