5.0 out of 5 stars Great Machine, it's like a supercharged car, 5 Dec. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony Playstation 3 Console (40GB Version) (Video Game)
OK so i've had a Wii since about Feb this year. It's a great machine with some good games, a few great games and a lot of rubbish. I decided to buy a PS3 to compliment the Wii after a lot of research comparing the PS3 to the Xbox 360. I finally settled on the PS3 for a number of reasons, firstly this deal with fifa08 is great with the free hdmi lead. The machine itself is very quiet you can hear the disc reading and thats about it. It comes with blu-ray so no need to buy a seperate player and playback on blu-ray is great, i've tried it with the movie 300. It's more reliable than a Xbox 360 at least from all the reviews i've read, hardly any mention any PS3 problems and the xbox 360 seems to be hit and miss, I personally know someone who is on to their fourth in a year but equally know someone else who's never had any problems with the Xbox so the build consistency seems suspect and I didn't want a machine that could potentially break down every few months. The PS3 machine itself runs reasonable cool as long as there's decent ventilation, even after a few hours its not hot at all. It's build quality is exceptional, it's solid, you could probably drop it and it would survive. It looks great in the living room. It's going to get DivX support soon. If you need more disk space, you can easily add a new hard disk and replace the existing one without invalidating your warranty. OK it doesn't have as many games as the Xbox 360 and most of the games are ported from the 360, however I think next year we'll see a change. It's got innovation like the Wii with tilt controller for driving games and the new eye cam. It's also cheaper than the Xbox360 if you want to add the Xbox's HD player to the package, plus blu-ray is Disney exclusive so for people with kids this format is probably essential.

In conclusion i'm glad I chose the PS3 over the Xbox and it does compliment my Wii as a different gaming experience, Fifa08 on the Wii is terrible but on the PS3 it's great, the Wii is more family fun, whereas the PS3 is great for online and solo play. Both machines are excellent in their own way, but I don't see the point of having a Xbox360 and a PS3 as they are too similar.
