Ps3 Console — Short Ps3 Review & Thought

Ps3 Console — Short Ps3 Review & Thought

I bought this 120Gb Slim PS3 Console simply for the fact my old 80GB PS3 Console died after updating to the latest firmware from Sony. It lasted me 3 years and as much as I used it in the past year I say it served me well although I still blame Sony for killing it…R.I.P. old 80 Gigger.

So on to my thoughts of the 120Gb Slim, Nothing really different as far as playing PS3 Console games and watching Blu-Ray movies. All are the same as the old PS3 Console models EXCEPT the Slims do not have 4 USB ports in the front for accessories as some of the older PS3 Console models did. This is no real big deal cause you can use a USB hub to get additional ports.

The Slims do not support backwards compatibility for PS2 games but says it will play SOME PS(one) original games. This is no big deal for me either, I did not have any PS2 games to play except one. As expected though, if you want to play some PS2 games you may be able to find them on the Playstation Store to buy(you know Sony has to keep making money somehow).

Last thing I can think of at this time the new Slims do not offer is the option in the XMB to add another operating system such as Linux Yellow Dog. Also not a big deal to me cause I have other computers in the house I can use instead of the PS3 Console as most normal people do. Really, what is the purpose for another operating system, not like you can do a lot on the PS3 Console with another operating system. I bought my PS3 Console to play games and watch movies. It is not intended for me to take place of an actual computer… IT IS A GAMING CONSOLE.

So bottom line is I like the 120Gb Slim, I wanted the larger hard drive but I can buy a larger hard drive at a later time and install it myself. It is quieter than my old PS3 Console, plays games and movies the same as the older PS3 Console did too. I also like the matte finish, the whole look is more pleasant on the eyes than the old PHAT PS3 Console. My whole family loves watching Blu-ray movies on it as well as instantly streaming movies from Netflix.

My only big concern is this, IF Sony killed my old PS3 Console with a firmware update that caused the Blu-ray drive to only be able to read regular DVD’s and Cd’s and not Blu-ray movies or games(all PS3 games are on Blu-ray BTW) then will they end up coming out with a newer design for the PS3 Console again and releasing an update to kill the current Slims?? I do think that Sony deliberately did this to get people to buy the newer Slims.

Ps3 Console Slim Is The Same As Fat Ps3

Ps3 Console Slim Is The Same As Fat Ps3

Thought many said you can’t install Linux anymore into the PS3 Console slim, I don’t care much cause I never install Linux into my fat PS3 Console at all. Or can we still I don’t know and haven’t try it.

So let’s talk about the goods.
-Lighter than fat PS3 Console by 5ibs.
-Finger print can mess with the PS3 Console slim because the cover have texture that finger prints can’t touch it.
— PS3 Console slim is better than PS3 Console fat just like PS2 slim was better than PS2 fat.
-Flat and not fat.
-The power cord is smaller and easier to plug in hell yeah!!
-It doesn’t have the back switch anymore like the fat PS3 Console and fat PS2, you can shut it down and once it turn red light, you can unplug the power cord if you don’t intent to play for a long period of time, Sony state it in the manual. PS2 slim also don’t have the back switch as well.
-Everything else is still PS3 Console and that’s good.

The a bit kind of bad thing was that you can’t touch the front buttons to power on and cover it for 3 seconds to turn it off anymore and the reset button can be touch as well, you got to push the buttons now.

BUT it’s not even a big deal, why?
Because the DS3 controller is all you need. Want to turn on the PS3 Console, just push the PS button on the controller. Want to turn off the PS3 Console, just shut it down from the PS3 Console users top or hold the PS button 3 seconds and when the options come up, scroll down to shut the system off, easy and simple.

I will update my review when I know more about the PS3 Console slim like can we still install Linux or other programs in.

Blu-ray movies look awesome so anyone who want a Blu-ray player and want a game system, PS3 Console slim is all you need. You don’t have to buy a […] to […] Blu-ray player, PS3 Console slim can do all that and even play PS3 Console games as well.

I recommend to anyone who want a PS3 Console, get the PS3 Console slim, its awesome. PS3 Console also have some awesome games and some more awesome games will come out too.

Note to the fanboys on both side, PS3 Console and X360, both PS3 and X360 are awesome so fanboys need to stop their biases toward each others and play the games you guys like and stop hating on other console.

Ps3 Console — Ps3 And Xbox 360

Ps3 Console — Ps3 And Xbox 360

All of the fanboy bickering and bias leaning aside, people who can only afford one $ […] gaming console want to know which system to choose between the PS3 Console & Xbox 360. This comes down to a simple matter really putting all of the technical jargon aside. The PS3 Console is a superior piece of hardware to the Xbox 360. It comes fully loaded and if you have an HDTV and you need your gaming machine to double as your movie player then I say from a technical standpoint the PS3 Console is going to be your way to go.

What the Xbox 360 lacks in power under the hood, it surely makes up for with its games and gaming experience. Xbox Live is vastly superior to Playstation Network in all aspects save price, but you truly get what you paid (or didn’t pay) for. The community is much larger and it is better on every level and if you just casually watch a movie on your console every now and then, you can download 1080p HD movies for viewing from the video marketplace. People who plan to collect Blu-Ray disks and watch alot of movies who have HDTV should get a PS3 Console.

For around the price of 2 Blu-Ray disks, you can get Xbox Live for a year. As far as games go, the Xbox 360 is the superior system. ‘Little Big Planet’ might be cool for some but it doesn’t hold a candle to Halo 3 or Gears of War 2 and I suspect if more ‘kid-friendly’ fare is your thing then you probably own or plan to own a Nintendo Wii. It is my personal opinion that people who try to argue that PS3 Console exclusives are on par with Xbox 360’s are not only Sony fanboys, but delusional Sony fanboys. It is my guess that the PS3 Console will sell very well this holiday season at its new price and hopefully with that will allow for improved exclusives (ie God of War 3).

I find that people who have both systems for the most part agree that the PS3 Console has better hardware and the Xbox 360 has better software (which includes online). I find myself playing the Xbox 360 much more than I do the PS3 Console. You really can’t go wrong either way so I hope that based on some of my thoughts you can look at what you want out of a gaming system and make a decision. If you can afford it…now is surely the time to pick up the system you don’t have with these price drops. For most people that means picking up a PS3 Console.

Ps3 Console — The Ps3 Slims Down

Ps3 Console — The Ps3 Slims Down

It’s here! The long awaited PS3 Console slim (and the even longer awaited price cut) is available on department store shelves and online. As with the PS2, Sony has managed to draw new hype by reissuing the same console in a smaller, sleeker package and knocking one hundred dollars off the price tag.

Will this concept finally boost slumping PS3 Console sales? Only time will tell, however Amazon is currently limiting the amount of Ps3 Console sales to one per household, much like the Nintendo Wii when it was introduced. A strong indication that the website is expecting the newly designed model to be snatched up faster than Tickle Me Elmo’s on Christmas Eve…or maybe this is just Sony’s wishful thinking.

So…what’s the difference between the PS3 Console slim and the original PS3 Console (2006 edition), let’s take a quick look:

PS3 Console Slim

— Smaller design (now measures 13.385″(w) x 13.385″(h) x 6.299″(d)) which makes it 33% slimmer and 36% lighter than the original

— More energy efficient design (uses 34% less electricity)

— Flat charcoal black plastic cover (significantly reduces fingerprint smudges)

— Redesigned cooling system

— Cell processor has been upped to a 45nm manufacturing process (runs quieter)

— One hundred dollar price cut (the biggest modification yet)

Okay, so they didn’t really go all out by adding any additional features or deviating too far from the already installed ones, but Sony has managed to finally lower the price of the unit. That’s something customers were beginning to think would never happen.

A few things customers might not like is Sony’s uncompromising style of forcing proprietary items to it’s PS3 Console fan base. For example, universal remotes are still inoperative when being used on the console because it purposely lacks infrared technology. You will still need a Bluetooth remote to operate the unit from across the room. The unit (as expected) is not backwards compatible, so PS2 games can’t be played on the new console. And online gameplay is still slightly problematic when compared to the Xbox 360.

Basically consumers are being reintroduced to a modified product with a smaller price tag. With Christmas just around the corner this is a perfect sales approach to finally get the PS3 Console moving off the shelves and into the homes of gamers.

The Ps3 Console earns a solid 4-star rating, it might not come with many added features when compared to the original, but the reduced price is something that is hard to ignore.

Ps3 Console — Ps3 A New Age

Ps3 Console — Ps3 A New Age

The PS3 Console has definately proven we are in a new age of entertainment. The graphics alone on HD are worth the price. The game content and attention to detail is much improved & in my opinion better than what other consoles can offer. Some say it costs too much, but take into consideration that the PS3 Console is also a Blue Ray player and will upconvert standard dvd titles to 1080P. You get updates for your console via internet using a home PC w/ a disc or flash drive and may also use a Wi-Fi connection or just hook it directly to an ethernet cord. The process is very simple and FREE. I would also like to note that the PS3 Console Network and connection to the internet is completely free to use. Xbox charges for internet connection to they’re network.

You may purchase content from the PS3 Console Network and they also have a vast list of free items such as backgrounds and themes. The load times in games is much faster than other consoles that will ease the minds of the impatient. You may store MP3’s, Movies, Pictures as well as some other content on the console, so as you can see this is much, much more than just a gaming console and I believe that you will be more than happy with the multiple functions it provides for the price.

I do however rate this a 4.5 just for some minor issues.

To start the manuals that come with it are not very detailed at all which may be an issue for those new to newer technology. Some extra hardware you buy seperately are priced a little high such as an extra Dual Shock Controller ect. Also, it is not backward compatible anymore. They do not have them in production anymore so if someone has told you the 160GB is, it is not! You will either have to buy an older system that’s used from Gamestop or some other service to play the PS2 games. On the plus side PS2’s prices are at a all time low now.

NOTES:
It will play reg Playstation games for those of you who still own the clssics.
Do NOT fall for buying a 50$ -150$ HDMI cord claiming it is better. As long as it is 1.3 it will provide the exact same quality. I personally purchased one here on amazon with my order for 19 cents plus a couple dollars shipping. You will not find any cheaper.

High speed internet connection srongly advised for those of you wishing to update your system.

For online game play do NOT use sattelite Internet Providers such as Blue Sky. You will have extreme lag and it is virtually impossible to host your own game.

So, there you have it. Everything I can think of to consider. I say it is definately worth the money, and if you have kids it will keep them happy for a long time. I hope this has helped your decision.

Ps3 Console — Upgraded To Ps3 Slim From Ps3 40

Ps3 Console — Upgraded To Ps3 Slim From Ps3 40

I previously owned a 40GB PS3 Console and decided to upgrade to the new PS3 Console Slim. Here is my experience:

PROS
— a great Blu-ray player that is updated frequently by Sony ( firmware updates allow this player to evolve over time!)
— ability to rent/stream movies from my couch through PSN is great! No subscription required.( this was also present in the older models, just one that I love!)
— obviously the SLIM is lighter, smaller, and more energy efficient. (more efficient was a huge draw for me)
— much quieter than my 40GB PS3 Console! (especially during blu-ray playback and long game play!)
— PS3 Console Slim has ability to bitstream Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD MA audio( my receiver can now display TrueHD audio properly!)

UPGRADE PROCESS
— overall very easy and smooth process(took about an hour to backup and restore my data)
— ensure you de-Authorize your old PS3 Console before trading it in! PS3 Console will prompt you about this when formatting old PS3 Console.
— However, on your new PS3 Console slim, you will need to download ALL of your PSN content again! This will take some time, depending upon the amount of content you have bought and downloaded. (this includes your PSN games, expansion packs, and all your Rock Band or GH songs!)
— PLEASE NOTE: not ALL of my save game data transfered over! Apparently this is a well documented problem, that some games lock your save data to one console only! This was very disappointing as I lost all of my progress in games like Rock Band and Killzone! I am hoping these can be fixed with enough user complaints.

Overall, the same great PS3 Console experience! Easy upgrade process with a few gotchas to be aware of but this in no way takes away from the amount of value you get with this new PS3 Console!

PS3 Console — Cool as a Cucumber

There is not much more (if at all) to add to what «Aragorn» wrote in his review. Just wanted to comment on the issue of the temperature of the unit. After playing online for about 3 hours straight, the unit’s exhaust temperature is still less than 95 deg F. My PS3 Console is in my media cabinet but the back of it faces a cut out so the exhaust is not hindered. Also, I leave the front of the cabinet open when it is in use.

Love the unit. It paired immediately with my Motorola H350 headset and off I went. It is really a remarkable machine. My wife immediately commented on how good the graphics look and the true social networking application that is Playstation Home. I think I will get a wireless keyboard and mouse for it soon just to complete the package. It would be cool if FPS could use the keyboard and mouse rather than the controller to play but that is not a deal breaker for me.

For all who decide to purchase this amazing bit of computing genius, enjoy!

Playstion 3 Console

Playstion 3 Console

What’s so impressive about the PlayStation®3 Console? Maybe it’s the built-in high definition Blu-Ray player; or perhaps the life-like games that make you feel like you’re caught in the action; it could even be the sleek new design and stellar graphics linked with Playstation’s Dualshock wireless controller making your gaming experience more convenient. One thing is for certain however, the PlayStation®3 gaming console lives up to its name and easily surpasses its predecessors, giving new meaning to an all-in-one gaming machine.

The PlayStation®3 system delivers it all: lots of elite games (suchas God of War, Gran Turismo, and Final Fantasy for a few) with great graphics; immaculate picture quality liberated at a stunning 1080p; a built-in Blu-Ray player for all of your HD movies; and built-in Wi-Fi to connect you directly to the internet in seconds, or the option of Ethernet connection.

But aside from these things, one thing that truly breaks the PlayStation®3 away from the rest of the pack is the Playstation Network, often abbreviated as PSN. The PlayStation®3 comes with a built-in network that as of June 2010 was over 50 million users strong. This network is a free network that helps users communicate with one another for: user to user chat; multiplayer gaming; scores and ranking, for player comparison; internet browsing and more.

Another great extra that comes with the Playstation Network is the Playstation Store. Here, gamers can visit a virtual marketplace offering a range of downloadable content both for purchase and available free of charge. The store includes playable demos, full games, add-on content, themes, and game and movie trailers.

Another extra found within the Playstation Network is the Netflix application. Now, PSN users are able to enjoy instant access to thousands of Netflix titles and TV shows on demand, at the touch of a button. Netflix movies or shows can be streamed directly to the Playstation 3 Console and delivered right to the users’ television set. What’s even better than that? Users will be able to watch their streaming movies in stunning 1080p while enjoying Dolby 5.1 channel surround sound with more and more content available with subtitles.

With PlayStation®3 web browsing, you have the ability to open six pages at one time, scrolling back and forth between them as you please; and you are able to do everything from returning emails, to searching and listening to music on Youtube, to google searches, etc. A pleasant plus that comes with PlayStation®3 web browsing capabilities, is that a USB keyboard can be plugged into the console to enable a more convenient browsing experience. Even though the web browsing interface isn’t the fastest surfing process out there, a user-friendly, dedicated keyboard definitely eases any frustration that may be found with impatient gamers.

At first glance, the PlayStation®3 console may seem like an overpriced gaming machine, it seems well worth its price when compared to everything jam-packed into this device. A Blu-Ray player alone may run you more than $ 300, let alone combined with an HD gaming system, internet browsers and loads of other little goodies.

Mr Noisette The Playstation 3 Gaming system is an ultimate gaming system. Prices may seem, but its well worth its value. If you’re interested, check out some suggested purchases of the Playstation 3 Console Playstation 3 Consoles
