      In a class of its own

      By BigMattSr

      from Indiana

      I own both PS3 and 360 and use both, this product is under rated it should be at the top of your shopping list I have owned this from the launch and never a problem. If you are into games, movies or entertainment system you need this system. When you connect a Sony to a Sony device they complement each other like a symphony, you cannot be disappointed with this product ;-) your friend Matthew

      Sony Play Station 3 and Unchartered 3

      By tcfoster1

      from Cape Girardeau, Mo

      The Sony Play Station 3 360 GB is an exceptionally good system, far beyond my expectations the graphics are mind blowing and the sound lets you feel like your in the action. The Uncharted 3 game that comes with the Play Station 3 shows off the performance and power of this system. The dual shock 3 controller lets you feel the action for a great experience It's well worth the money!

        PS3 > Wii + 360

        By GpB217

        from Alaska

        Pros

        • Best Upgradeable Blu Ray Player
        • Free: Speedy Internet Browser
        • PS Home
        • PS Move
        • Smooth/Crisp Online Gaming

        Cons

        • Forced Full Game Dowloads(Minor and actually allows the game to be smoother with faster loadtimes)

        Best Uses

          Best console on the Market, it truly is the only way to go for a gamer. Now with PS Move, the Sony PlayStation 3 truly delivers everything and does it the best. Best console ever without a shadow of a doubt coming for someone who's been gaming ever sense the NES.
          It's 23 or so popular exclusive series and expanding strongly out due the 360's 8 exclusives at a dead stop. In all actuality the PS3 may not have one bad exclusive overall with more underrated games.

          The most cutting edge in gaming technology

          By Callofduty

          from Colesville, MD

          Pros

          • awesome graphics and enough hard drive space for whatever you need
          • it is easier to carry and travel with

          Cons

          • n/a

          Best Uses

            If you want a great system with awesome graphics and enough hard drive space for whatever you need then buy this. Even if you need more space you can upgrade or buy another hard drive. I've had this thing for 7 months and I haven't had a single overheat and trust me I would play C.O.D. for hours. If you are an online player who doesn't want to pay for it then you are looking at what you need. Just to educate with the Xbox you have to pay $50 and last month it was increased $10. The only problem I have with it is the material it is made out of compared to the fat one but honestly I don't care it is still solid.

            Excellent entertainment system

            By Domitilo

            from Pasco, WA

            Pros

            • plays HD and Blu ray
            • Sleek look
            • Smaller size

            Cons

            • none

            Best Uses

              I enjoy the PS3 Slim, especially Bravia sinc. The graphics are incredible. There are numerous entertainment options. My wife would never get on a PS3 but now that Netflix are available, she is on it every day. The feel of the controller is nice. Truly a remarkable product. In addition, Sony is coming out with a surround sound bar with PS logo which looks good to enhance the sound. They also appear to be coming out with a gaming headset over ear around the same time. Can't wait to purchase. Already ordered the sound bar (on sale right now). Great product.
