Product Description

Manufacturer's Description PlayStation 3 brings advanced next-generation technology to home console hardware, realised through the combination of Cell and RSX processors.

With the Giga-bit Ethernet and a pre-installed 80GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD) as standard in PS3, PlayStation 3 gamers will be able to download a variety of contents as well as access on-line games and services over the Playstation Network. Equipped with basic input/output ports, PlayStation 3 supports a broad range of displays from conventional NTSC/PAL standard TVs to the latest full HD (1080i/1080p) flat panel displays, offering PS3 owners the joy of the most advanced computer home entertainment content with the new DualShock 3 Controller as standard.

For use in living rooms, maximum heat and noise reduction has been achieved with a noise level equivalent to that of the current slim-line PlayStation 2. With the overwhelming computational power of the Cell processor, PlayStation 3 is capable of playing back content from Blu-ray (BD) disc at a bit rate of multiplex 48Mbps with ease, the maximum bit rate defined in BD standards.

5.0 out of 5 stars PS3 - Not a Games Console! 15 Nov. 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
So I ummed and ahhed for some time about buying the PS3. Why?

1. Don't have enough time to play Games (full time teacher and Dad to be)
2. Heard it was very noisy (untrue!)
3. Did I really need it?

I have to say since owning it now for some time, it really is a truly remarkable piece of kit. Why?

1. The Blu Ray is fantastic. - Just make sure you buy the Blu Ray remote as it's difficult to convince your other half you haven't just bought a games console when operating the Blu Ray with a joystick! That's £200 saved on buying a decent Blu Ray player then (stand alone players don't upgrade themselves either unlike the PS3).

2. It has integrated wireless so no wires which is dead easy to set up. Make sure you have your WEP handy

3. There is a full media server inside so you can browse all your photos, music, videos via your router and which ever other computers you have in the house. Very important for justifying it to the wife when the wedding pics come up in all their glory on your flatscreen.

4. Use it as a DVD player and it automatically upscales the DVD to make them look even better.

5. It has a good Internet Browser built in and the BBC are shortly bringing the iPlayer to PS3.

6. It is constantly being updated and improved via tried and tested over the air updates.

7. It looks fantastic. All black and shiny like the monoliths from 2001 a Space Odyssey.

8. Noise? What noise?? A barely audible slight, very distant hum on occasion. The XBox360 Elite sounds like one of those small portable vacuum cleaners and is really annoying in comparison.

9. It offers full 1080p playback via my Panasonic flatscreen and looks incredible as a result.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nice piece of furniture that works. 22 Mar. 2009
By Shaz17 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I love this sleek expensive looking piece of hardware, at the side of the others out there this is the best. It is quieter than most and alot quieter than the xbox. The dvd's are awesome to play on here as well the games.
The wireless controller is a must, and have a few of these, they come in handy when you have a few people over and saves stepping over wires, so less dangerous.
For what it can do, I feel well worth the price.

Just a pity about the backwards technology that the superior 60gb version has and also the SD card slot, which this version doesn't have either and that is the only fault with this version...shame really

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate in gaming and media !! 21 Aug. 2009
By Prakhar
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this console as a birthday present in december 2008. Since then i have collected a range of fantastic games the console has to offer as well as a few blu rays.

I'll start with gaming. The graphics are brilliant and very realistic! And the variety of good quality games on the PS3 is huge. Most of these games have good conrols great gameplay and wonderful online capabilities! Games such as uncharted and metal gear solid look fantastic and have great storylines!

Now for blu ray movies. At the moment i only have 2 blu rays, dark knight and Mamma Mia. however i rent many a film on blu ray from lovefilm. And i have to say they look above and beyond DVD quality!! i rarely rent dvds anymore unless they are not available on blu ray! The PS3 can also play Dvd movies and it upscales the quality by quite a bit. i tested this to see if it was just speculation. I was wrong the dvds on a PS3 look way better than a normal dvd on a dvd player and it is definitely good enough if you want to save some money on a film and buy a dvd. It will still look brilliant on a hdtv with PS3.

On to Media. The PS3 has 80 GB of storage which is enought to store almost anything u can think of i go crazy with music photos home videos and game demos and i still have 30 GB of Space! Photos look great on the big screen and a slideshow option is available. Music also sound good and is nice to have in the background while you are doing something else.

Pros of the PS3 :
Great Games!
Huge Variety,
Brilliant graphics,
Infinite capabilities,
Briliiant online Playstation network,
DVD upscale,
Blu ray player,
Optional DVR with Play TV,
Great online e.g. video chat with friends, gaming, internet surfing, etc
and many many more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a Dream Come True. 20 July 2009
By C.L.H
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The PS3 is an incredible games console- perhaps the best there is. It has so many useful features and the quality of the picture is magnificent. First and foremost, it is perfect for gaming; PS3 has wireless controllers that charge quickly, meaning less clutter. PS3 games are blu-ray disks, producing absolutely beautiful graphics a good example of this being Heavenly Sword - Platinum (PS3). The feature of Playstation Network (which is free!) allows for interactive gaming. After years of wishing that other people could play my games with me, PSN is an absolute gift making games such as LittleBigPlanet (PS3) twice as fun. Automatically, the PS3 updates games (also for free) with nifty little upgrades.

What else makes the PS3 so fantastic is that it plays blu-ray films, so there is no need to break the bank buying a blu-ray player. It also automatically upscales the quality of DVDs, enhancing your enjoyment of your collection. It has USB ports, so it is easy to connect up your iPod & store music, photos etc. on the PS3. I will digress to say that this feature comes in handy for importing the themes of wrestlers not featured on WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2009 (PS3) when making my favourites with the creation mode.

The machine itself is very attractive. Black & silver, 'PLAYSTATION3' written across the top in an elegant font, it looks modern to the point of being futuristic. It looks right at home when positioned beside a black HD TV. Overall is is a great way of upgrading your home entertainment system.
