3.0 out of 5 stars I waited for this for 2 years, gave it time..........................., 24 April 2008
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Sony Playstation 3 Console (40GB Version) (Video Game)
Before I start this review let me tell you I have owned my ps3 since lauchday and that I'm a huge playstation fan. I collect games consoles (N64,ps1,ps2,megadrive,snes,dreamcast,saturn,3do,lynx,mastersystem etc.. etc...) The ps1 was class; 3d gaming, cd sound and making gaming cool at the time when gaming was aimed at kids. The ps2 delivered dvd and 128 bit games to the industry- GT3,GTA3,vice city, Final fantasy and games such as god of war, jak and dexter. And the ps3... well.... I brought by ps3 60gb premium on launch day. £550 - 1 extra controller. I had saved up for ages and I have not got much money. I tried to run it though a non hd tv and it looks the same as a ps2 on ALL GAMES. I was very dissapointed and went out to get an HDTV on credit from my local retailer. I got a 32" 1080p Sony HDTV and the graphics improved dramatically. But still the ps3 seemed cold and stardust hd and ratchet and clank exepted there was nothing to even want me to turn the console on to even play it! I have tried most ganes on ps3(motorstorm,gt5 prologue,lair,resistance fall of man, drakes fortune....) About 4 months ago I purchased an xbox 360(premium not elite from a friend.) Every time I go to play a game the 360 goes on not the ps3- EVERY TIME. On the 360 all games look the same(if not better.) And cost less than half than the ps3 versions. On the 360 xbox lives adds far better features to games such as playing online(ps3 does not.) And gaming points for unlocking and achiving things in games. ..... Dont get me wrong the ps3 is good- ITS JUST NOT GREAT...... Bluuray- great (hdtv) pads (no rumble and sixasis sucks very badly.) Console looks like a turbo George Forman grilling machine. Even the 60gb version cannot play the simplest of ps2 games. Games are £10 more in most shops but not any better(and you dont get gaming points like xbox live.) I LOVED THE PS1 AND PS2 AND TURNED MY BACK ON THE XBOX BUT THIS CONSOLE JUST DOES NOT CUT IT - BE AWARE. (I gave it from launchday till now - I am not xbox biased I own gamecube and wii/360/dreamcast/saturn. I like all game consoles all systems- the ps3 has no soul and its marketing machine that will not stop till it cons you into the same situation I have been in. - please listen, I have had my ps3 hooked up to playstation network from day 1 and have given it all the time to prove itself it just hasent.) I have talked to fellow gamers in shops and out on the street around the uk. The ps3 is second choice in most cases,and if you own a ps3 like me then please dont be be offended and please open your eyes and try the 360.....
