Recently bought a PS3 Consoles. (About a month ago). I have had a lot of fun with it so far, and would like to say it is worth the price tag! (And technically is a better buy than the Xbox 360 in many respects!) Allow me to reiterate, however, I am not saying this is a better system, simply it is a better value. (The PS3 Consoles has an internal wireless internet receiver, but for the Xbox 360 you need to buy an external one for .)
I have purchased the following games to play on this system: Metal Gear Solid 4, Little Big Planet, and Socom: Confrontation.
The graphical prowess of this system really shines (Especially in Metal Gear Solid 4) and trumps anything I’ve seen on the Xbox 360. I have owned the Xbox 360 for years, and yes I still thoroughly play and enjoy that system as well.
The games look phenomenal in HD, and I recommend those that can take advantage of that technology do so when buying this system. The one regret I do have is that, in my opinion, not enough big AAA exclusive games can be found on this system, but there is enough variety that it will be well worth it. Look out for Killzone 2 to make a big splash.
The following are some of the issues I have come across which I think everybody who is considering to buy a PS3 Consoles for use as a blu ray player should know and consider as these may be a deal breaker for some.
1) You can only have one audio output at a time either through TV or through your home theater system and not both.
If you want to sometime have sound come through tv (playing games) and sometime through home audio system (watching Movie) there is a complicated 7 step process to change the audio out, which is to be done every time you change audio output. With all other blu ray players, even cheap ones you can have simultaneous audio out from TV and speakers. This is soo bad.
2) No universal remote control will control PS3 Consoles unless you buy and attach a separate IR dongle, as PS3 Consoles does not have a infrared sensor. that means an additional remote to worry about.
3) no netflix, itunes or pandora support, which some of the other BD playes have.
4) No power off button on the remote, you have to physically go to the PS3 Consoles to switch it off.
So bottom line if you are going to play games and watch bluray PS3 Consoles is very good, but if you are solely interested in using PS3 Consoles as a bluray player, there are much better choices and cheaper.
