"My first PS3 and I'm sold!"5.0 starson by ryrycalguy
Pros: Great gaming experience and great movie playback on both DVDs and BDs.
Cons: No PS2 backwards compatibility; no USB inputs on the back.
Summary: This is my first Playstation and so I guess everyone else's complaint about it not being backwards compatible with PS2 is really a non-issue for me. I bought this console because I wanted a Blu-Ray player. Since I like video games (I was mostly a Nintendo player) and was in the market for a BD player, I just decided to get a PS3. All I can say is that I'm really happy with it and I use my PS3 for gaming now more than I do for watching movies. Anyway, I love my PS3 now. I also had Xbox 360 and I can say that the PS3 is a more elegant device.
