"Better than the Wii and the Xbox 360!"4.5 starson by MrMurder
Pros: Plays Blu-ray Disc media, very good graphics with HDMI cables. Upscales DVDs from 480i to 1080p. Large HDD and it can surf the web and stream Youtube video. Very good games. Nice design. Speedy internet. Has bluetooth conectivety.
Cons: No media card readers and Software emulator so it can't play PS2 games and it's only got two USB 2.0 ports. Firmware updates can mess up the console if not careful.
Summary: I got the PS3 as a birthday gift from my dad. I 've had my PS3 for four months and it has been running smoothly. My friend who HATES the PS3 says that it gets so hot you can cook saussages on it. I play Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction for up to five hours and the outside does get warm, but not hot. sometimes it even feels cold. The only problem I've had so far is getting The Pink Panther BD to play after I updated my firmware to v. 2.60. But I got it to play. I don't really need the media card readers because I already have a PS2. PS: DON"T HOOK THE PS2 UP TO AN HDTV, IT"S MENT BE PLAYED ON A CRT TV!!!! Anyways I think the PS3 makes a great birthday gift because it supports 1080p unlike the Wii and dosen't get the Red Ring of Death like the Xbox 360!
