"Still to expensive? But basically the same console as the 80/60GB model"3.5 starson by jaseray
Pros: Build quality, Features that work. Its finally got afew games on the way.
Cons: Blu Ray (will explain later). Poor marketing and business strategy by Sony
Summary: Ok, so it doesnt have the ability to play PS2 games! So What!! I imagine that at a guess 80% of the people that bought a PS3 already own a PS2? And if your that desperate, go and buy a second hand one! They cost peanuts!
Now this console is the same as the 60/80GB versions except for the features that are missing. It still plays the same games to the same quality and movies. It still has wifi and looks exactly the same as the other to. Im trying to figure out why so many people on here who loved the 60GB version when that came out are now scoring this version so low. I will say it again, as a games machine, ITS THE SAME MACHINE!!
My friend bought this version the other day, and since i have a 60GB version i decided to take a look. Its a good working piece of kit. And i have noticed that alot of you appear to be having connectivity problems with your wifi. Well ive setup five of these machines now in the UK, and i have had no problem with any of them. I simply read the manual of the Router and that was that. Sorry!!
My only real issue with the PS3 is the Blu Ray drive. For games it works a treat. But for movies, well i think unspectacular would best describe it. Oh sure on a tv 55" or above that 1080p signal is a treat. But on standard 32",42" panels, it makes no dam difference. In truth it does give a better picture, but in reality my eyeball simply cannot see the difference. I have some very good standard DVD kit. And to be fair my upscaling DVD player is alittle bit better than the PS3. And its not down to poor cabling or a low quality tv either. Thats one of the reason for poor sales. The thing can really do all the things the advertising says. And it really is 10 times better than DVD on paper. But its bit like this. If you wanted to buy say a whistle for refereeng a game of soccer or something. You would go to a shop and ask for the best and loudest whistle money could buy. And the shopkeeper would sell you a dog whistle? Because it really is the loudest whistle there is. But the only problem is you cant hear it. Its abit like the BluRay player and your eyeball, it cant see the difference!
