Overview
PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) is a fully featured multimedia device, capable of handling not just awe-inspiring games, but all your photos, music, movies, your downloads, your Internet, your entire digital life…

The PLAYSTATION 3 is a revolutionary digital entertainment hub. At its core it provides the best possible gaming experience. In addition to great gaming, the PLAYSTATION 3 has a built-in and expandable hard disk drive allowing for the easy storage, transfer and management of your digital photos, video and music. It adopts Blu-ray Disc technology, providing more storage of gaming content and the ability to playback high definition movies. It has a 1 giga bit Ethernet Port and built-in wireless connectivity (Wi-Fi), plus it features a comprehensive web browser allowing you to surf the web from your TV.

It supports a variety of inputs from USB to Bluetooth, allowing you to plug in everything from a keyboard to your digital camera. The PLAYSTATION 3 moves your digital lifestyle from the office to the living room.
PLAYSTATION 3 is the most advanced computer entertainment system ever created, featuring new technologies and capabilities such as the Cell Broadband Engine, Blu-ray Disc, HDMI output and 1080p resolution. PS3 also comes with an internal (40, 80, 120GB) hard drive, the new Dualshock 3 controller that has the so called SIXAXIS motion-sensor and free network gameplay, everything that will make this system relevant for the next decade.

Playstation Network


THE PLAYSTATION NETWORK (PSN) is Sony's answer to Microsoft Live, it basically allows every PlayStation 3 owner to experience the built-in online capabilities of the system and enjoy online connectivity. When connecting the PS3 to a broadband Internet connection, access to the network is immediately available with free services including network gaming, access to the PlayStation Store, Web browsing, chatting with friends, and more. Several PlayStation 3 software launch titles feature online-networked gameplay modes accessible through the PSN with no associated subscription fees.
Some PSN content is also available to PSP and PC users.

Official Firmware
PS3 features DivX playback and the latest firmware (v2.60 as of 02/04/2009) includes expanded capabilities to show and organize pictures and guest access to the PlayStation Store.

Thanks to Miss jalaneme for the video.

(Sorry about the dupes)

So, 360 or PS3?
The PS3 is the most expensive system right now, but let's look at the out-of-the-box features:
- Wired and wireless connectivity
- 80 or 120GB harddrive
- bluRay movies player with all the features from the most expensive players
- DVD upscaling to 1080p
- Bluetooth connectivity, you can connect and print on any Bluetooth printers
- Access to downlodable content, the library is huge. Movies and TV series
- Free online play
- Access to HOME a virtual world to interact with people
- Overall, the downlodable content is cheaper on the PlayStation Store (than XB Live I mean)

Still, these are the features the PS3 is missing, still to this day:
- Unified Internet connectivity, each game has you do something different to play online, multiple accounts, etc.
- HOME is basically pointless at this moment, go online and do.... nothing
- PS3 versions are the worst among the multi platform releases, not in all cases, but in the majority
- Sony is loosing support from 3rd parties, MS is spending too much money bringing studios to develop for the 360
- In downloadable content in general, the PS3 lacks behind the 360
- Loading times are terribly annoying for level change and for installation
- While the Hard Drive is much much bigger, the downloaded and installed content overall takes much more space than on the 360

In general, the PS3 is a great console and you cannot go wrong if you get it, really!.

And as a warning, there won't be any debating/flaming over the console "sucking" or whatever you wish to say. If all you want to say is "THIS SYSTEMS SUCKS YAY 360" then you will be dealt with.

...is very small

Thats what she said... :'(

Side note, Drakes Fortune should really be up there. As well as Call of Duty 4, Oblivion, Rock Band, Unreal Tournament 3, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, and Ninja Gaiden Sigma.

But its a good start, well done VVoltz.

edit: how could I forget Warhawk?

Don't worry m8, it'll be there, I just need some time to grab a great screenshot, resize it and upload it., but then again, I'll ad the titles. I'll put the screenshots after.

AHHHH!!

I got a PS3 today for Christmas, and so far I fucking love it! I played about 7-8 hours straight today haha.

I got the 60gig model with Resistance and MotorStorm bundled into it. I plan on buying a few other games aswell as i love it so much.

My only disappointment with the PS3 is that, they dont bloody include a cleaning cloth to clean the PS3 with. Because every time i sit down to play it i notice a smudge or a fingerprint haha.


Well my PSN tag is enigmaindex as my GBAtemp name is aswell, so yeah.

EDIT: Might i add Ratchet and Clank looks amazing
