Excellent Bundle, the new PS3 is a must have.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PlayStation 3 Console 500GB Model + PS Vita (Wi-Fi only) console bundle including PS All-Stars Battle Royale (PS3) (Console)
I've had an original PS3 since they were first release and have always wanted to upgrade to a newer one but couldn't warrant it as im a more dedicated Xbox 360 gamer really. I already had a Playstation Vita which I think is fantastic and play quite a bit so I highly recommend to get one of those and If you don't mind paying the initial price, get this bundle. The new 500GB PS3 is gorgeous, I really was suprised at how small it is compared to my old one and even the Xbox slim. It has a sprung loaded sliding top to insert the disc into and it's not as flimsy as what people have been reporting though it does feel a bit odd having to put your game disc in and push it onto the drive like you were back in the year 1999 or something so I do miss the sleek auto loading tray. Not the end of the world though, not like you keep swapping discs every hour is it?
The cross play feature of playing All Stars Battle Royal works so well between the PS3 & Vita allowing you to take you game anywhere without losing any progress or saves. This feature is just the beginning and you'll see most future titals doing this,giving you more for your money.
If you are going to get one of these, prepare yourself to subscribe to the Playstation Plus service. This is slowly converting me from an Xbox gamer as they give you so many free games for the £40 a year price tag, in December they're going to give us Batman Arkham City for free and I've already had freebies like Littlebig Planet 2, Resident Evil 5,Just Cause 2,Crysis 2,Borderlands,Ratchet & Clank and so many more. It's just stupid what they give you for the subscription fee.
This really is an entertainment hub and worth some serious thought.
