The PS3 Consoles is an amazing piece of gear. Believe it or not, I personally still have not played any games on this unit except for a few demos. I’ve just had little opportunity to do so. I have used “At Home” and I think its pretty cool. My son plays Tony Hawks Project and NBA Live 08, and Surfs the internet with it. Just watched Wanted and Handcock streaming movies and saved them to the PS3 Consoles’s hard drive for future viewing.
I’m waiting on my Panasonic TH-42PZ85U to arrive so that I can play 1080p enabled games and watch my first Blu-ray movie.
Build quality is second to none with the PS3 Consoles, no red ring of death issues to worry about. The PS3 Consoles operates quitely, you don’t even know its on. Overall, its a very solid product that’s pretty much future proof with it state-of-the-art blu-ray player and spacious hard drive.
PS3 Consoles – Great System! Awesome Graphics
!!Warning!! – Make sure you get a valid warranty on this system when buying it. I have heard cases where some people are getting ripped off for not doing enough research, from faulty PS3 Consoles’s.
I haven’t done a review on the ps2 or the ps1 so I figured I’d start here. I bought this system way back in November & I was so excited when I got it. It was really easy to set up, its really heavy though so you want to make sure you don’t drop it to damage the hard drive or the console itself. The thing that kinda disappointed me was no backwards compatibility with this unit compared to all the others. For some odd reason Sony ‘lacked’ on getting that function put into the system. Not that Iwould ever really ‘use’ that function because I keep all my old systems & usually I have 2 just in case one breaks down.
It could be too that Sony wanted to save money by not having people to replace their units from prolonged use from the backwards compatibility. After all the more hours you put into the system the more likely it will cause it to die on you or become slow loadings. I have had that experience before with previous consoles, especially the ps1. I played that system non-stop & of course like i said the more hours you put into a system the more likely it will break down.
Best rule of thumb:
Play for an hour or 2 or if you’re really into the game no more then 5 hours. Let it rest on standby for about 15min-1hr depending on how much you were playing it. This system tends to get pretty hot after awhile so its important to let it cool off & also it will keep the lens from burning out too quickly from too much exposure to heat. Playing it all the time will only allow you to get 1-3 years out of it. After learning that from my first ps1 & ps2 (well my ps2 still works ok) will allow more gaming overall. My 2nd ps1 still works good as new (not the mini) as well.
Other then that the PS3 Consoles seems to be doing pretty well now, it just had a late start in the race & hopefully it’ll get better. There are more games for it & with Resident Evil 5 & 2 Final Fantasy games being released on the system it should do fairly well, even though the X360 will also get the Final Fantasy game as well. But I’ve been seeing other great PS3 Consoles games coming out so it’ll start doing better. You just have to save some extra money for it. Not that the Wii or the Xbox 360 are bad systems either more of my fav games are on the PS3 Consoles. Plus the graphics are the best with this system. It beats the competition with that.
