Performance

I've owned a nintendo, PS1, PS2, and now a PS3. I've played the xbox & xbox 360. The 360 is a powerful machine with some good console specific titles, but the PS3 is by far a superior product. The blu-ray capability is great and it upconverts regular dvds to an amazing quality. The games are huge, the online play is free and fun, and the graphics are truely amazing with an untapped potential. I am thoroughly happy with my purchase.

Got the PS3 for Christmas and I absolutely love this thing. For the longest time, I played all games on my PC, and never thought I would buy into a console. The reality is the PS3 is more than a game console...it's a true entertainment system! I've connected my PS3 to the home network, and I'm able to stream all of my music, photos, videos from the PC hard drive on the PS3 without using any of the console's memory. The graphics are amazing. Blu-ray is unbelievable. Finally, the PS3 looks so much better than the bulky xBox. Get an Intec Vertical Glow Stand for it!

Love the PS3

by Trina on 2/4/2009

I got the PS3 to serve a dual purpose and it does so beautifully. I figured why pay upwards of $300 for a blu-ray player when I can buy a PS3 and play games and blu-ray. If you're a gamer, this is really the best choice if you want to do both. You get more bang for your buck. I have it connected to a 50 inch plasma using an hdmi connection. The picture and sound are superb. I would definitely recommend. You do want to be able to connect it to the net though, especially for the needed product updates. The gaming network is no where near as good as x-box live, but it doesn't detract from me enjoying it at all. If you're big into online gaming and you've used x-box live, you will be dissapointed.

PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system unleashes a brilliant, high-definition entertainment experience. As its digital soul, the Cell Broadband Engine™ represents a tour de force in parallel processing, which means a gaming experience that is beyond what you know today. Its built-in Blu-ray Disc™ drive delivers a whole new generation in high-definition gaming and unmatched digital media storage. Whether it's gaming, Blu-ray movies, music or online services, PLAYSTATION®3 invites you to Play Beyond.

Beyond power. Beyond limits. Beyond evolution. Beyond anything ever created in the world of gaming, lies the PLAYSTATION3 system. And with it the chance to transcend the concept of what traditional game play is supposed to be…for gamers worldwide to finally PLAY BEYOND.

PROCESS THAT: IT PERFORMS 1.8 TRILLION CALCULATIONS PER SECOND

The PLAYSTATION3 system’s Cell Broadband Engine is the very thing that game developers have always dreamt about. Its unique multi-processing unit design represents a tour de force in parallel processing. The ability to do more of everything at the same time means more enemies, more AI, more explosions, and more realistic game play. Game play that takes into account ragdoll physics and keyframe animation, enemy AI behaving unpredictably, glass cracking based on the size of the object that impacted it, and individual flecks of dust in a beam of sunlight to create a more believable and unique experience. The Cell Broadband Engine has the muscle and horsepower to move beyond artificial intelligence. This is the power that is the digital soul of the PLAYSTATION3 system.

  • 1 Central Processing Unit (CPU) and 8 Synergistic Processing Units (SPU)
  • 40 times faster than the chip that runs PlayStation 2
  • Capable of running at speeds at 3.2 GHz
  • Memory bandwidth: 25.6 GBytes per second

IT DREAMS IN BLU-RAY

Dreams are boundless. Their images are expansive and their colors inspired. Up until now, game developers have been dreamers cursed to dream with limitations. Forced to compromise their creative content for precious disc space. Then came the advent of Blu-ray. Just as the DVD offered a technological leap over CDs, the Blu-ray disc is the next leap forward in the advancement of data storage and high definition entertainment. But not as a simple evolution of an existing format. Blu-ray is something entirely different, a revolution catapulting the high definition gaming and movie experience into unknown frontiers. A revolution that finally frees game developers and moviemakers from the constraints of storage space. And allows them to dream in Blu-ray.

  • Five to ten times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs
  • 50 GB BD vs. 9 GB DVD
  • Pristine picture quality with the capability for ultimate high definition1
  • Recordable formats with unsurpassed storage capacity to store your digital world (photographs, home videos, music libraries, and data)
  • DVD compatibility so existing DVD collections can be enjoyed on Blu-ray hardware2

SIXAXIS Wireless Controller: IT SENSES YOUR EVERY MOVE

The power is here. The question is, can you control it? With the PLAYSTATION 3 system’s Cell Broadband Engine creating experiences that were never before seen as possible, a controller was needed that would enable your experience to match its potential. Enter the new SIXAXIS controller. Utilizing sensors designed to read when a player angles, tilts, thrusts, or pulls, the SIXAXIS controller allows game play to become a natural extension of the player’s body. And with the heritage of the PlayStation console’s basic controller design still intact, gamers will be able to play the controls they’ve already grown accustomed to while harnessing the added intuitive movements of the SIXAXIS controller.

  • Utilizes breakthrough technology and a highly sensitive motion sensing system so as the user moves the controller the game moves with it
  • Features Bluetooth for wireless gameplay; the PLAYSTATION3 system can support up to seven wireless controllers at one time
  • Can be swapped seamlessly from wireless to wired and automatically charged using the controller’s USB cable
  • The shape of the L2,/R2 buttons has been altered, enabling increased depth in stroke for more subtle control in games
  • The tilting angle of the analog joy sticks has been slightly broadened to enable more delicate and more dynamic manipulation
  • The information detection (L2,R2, analog joy stick) has been increased from 8 bit to 10 bit
