The Sony PlayStation 3!


After a long wait, Sony finally releases their latest gaming system that people have been anxiously waiting for. The question now is, if it really was worth the wait or not. I haven't bought the system yet myself, but i can say that it really is worth buying, it is twice the time better then X-Box 360 (speaking systematically), and 15 times better then the new Nintendo Wii, and also 25 times better then the PS2.

Like the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii, the PS3 can stand vertically or lie horizontally in an A/V rack, though because of its curved top, it's not meant to have any other components resting on top of it. We saw early prototypes in white and silver colors, but at launch, the PS3 will be available only in black--the 20GB version is all black, the 60GB version is highlighted with a chrome trim.

Whats important about it is that it can play PS1 and PS2 games, so u don't need to wait for the games you play for PS3 to come out, you can use your old PS1 or PS2 games. Another good feature about it is that it has a built in Bluetooth technology that lets you use the controller wirelessly and very comfortably, and not having to worry about moving it too much away from the Console. Like all other systems uptill now, you have to pay for online playing, but not anymore, online playing is free, just connect using your internet at home through a router, it could be wireless or through the ethernet. It also has 4 USB plugins in the front and 2 in the back, that lets you connect the controllers through that and other USB devices, like a USB mouse or a USB keyboard, to use its own web browsing. It is just like using a computer, no need to have trouble using the controller, you can click and type as normal as you do on your own computer. You can also charge your wireless controller through the USB by inserting it into the PS3 and the controller.

There are 2 versions of it that are being released, one is the 20 Gig and the other is the 60 Gig. The price of the 20 Gig is around $600 and the price of the 60 Gig is around $1500.
the PlayStation 3 hits the shelves as the most affordable Blu-ray player you can buy, merely half the price of $1,000 to $1,300 models from the likes of Samsung, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, and ironically Sony.

The PS3 is still a worthwhile system to buy, whether you buy it now or later on. Therefore the PS3 is a versatile and impressive piece of home entertainment system.
