I previously owned a 40GB version of the PS3 Console, and when the 120GB Slim version was announced, I decided to buy it. Since the PS3 Console holds it value well, I was able to sell my older model and purchase the newer slim model for about a $ 50 difference. With the new price level, the PS3 Console continues to set the bar for a complete entertainment system. While stand alone blu-ray players have seen prices drop, the overall value of getting a blu-ray player and a new game console in one package is still outstanding. The built in wireless means you will never have to worry about firmware updates as long you have an Internet connection and a wireless router.
The PS3 Console makes it easy to update your software, games, and firmware with just a few steps. The new PS3 Console Slim is not only smaller, but it also seems much quieter in my opinion, though I never had a big issue with my old 40GB model to be honest. If the noise of the older models was a concern for you, then you will be happy with a slim model. The larger disk space of 120 GB versus my older 40GB model is a nice benefit of upgrading as well. I would like to see Sony implement some other features such as Netflix on demand in the future; however, the overall value of using the Sony Playstation 3 as your primary entertainment system is pretty amazing in my opinion.
+ Cost effective entertainment system
+ Blu-ray Player
+ Built in Wireless Internet Adapter
+ Playstation Network membership is free
The only negative I could find is that the system does not support PS2 games, however since I do not own any PS2 games, it had no effect on my rating.
PS3 Console – Silent , Yet Deadly!
The first thing I noticed about the PS3 Console slim was the sound/noise . Oh wait there wasn’t any ! Even after playing battlefield 1943 , and call of duty 4 for about 2 – 3 hours and the system was barely heated and it made NO sound what so ever unlike the 80 GB! This system has a new processor in it which makes it faster and lower in noise . I would have purchased a 360 , but I didn’t feel like paying money for online …Plus I really wanted to get Killzone 2.
Im not a fan boy just someone who wants a system that won’t empty out my wallet , and that is a reliable product . And the PS3 Console slim had both , plus 120 GB .The only thing I didn’t like about the slim is the the power button and the DVD / CD /game disc slot .
Its a button instead of a censer when you press it .
I love the system and I believe its the best bang for ya buck . If you don’t mind paying for online for the 360 then I would push to the Xbox. Unless you want the exclusives for the PS3 Console which I do = P
