Expert Review

Kickstartnews
3 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Sony has always done its own thing. Between ridiculously proprietary MiniDisc, ATRAC file format, Memory Stick technology, Betamax tape format, Clie PDAs, Blu-ray, unique and unfathomably hard to find accessories, and a raft of other pointless and sometimes expensive nonsense, you'd think the company would have sunk beneath the waves years ago. That didn't happen.
  • Pros: The Sony PlayStation 3 has incredible potential along with a feature set that is at the top of the heap right now. Considering the length of these product lifecycles, Sony is likely to be the technology leader for at least three years. Good titles are rolling out as of this writing. You'll see some game titles on the PS3 (NBA 07 for example) which, while not tapping anywhere near the tremendous processing and graphics potential of this console—it's a port of the Xbox ...

Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) 60GB

best4reviews.com
20 October 2008
  • Summary: Viewed solely as a games console, the PS3 looks poor value for money despite the price NOT ALLOWEDping significantly since its launch. But when its network capabilities are considered, along with the 60GB hard disk (incidentally an 80GB version is rumoured to be on the way), the Blu Ray player, plus the sheer quality of the graphics/picture, it makes much more sense. Enough sense in fact for me to recommend you buy one.
  • Pros: Blu Ray player, graphics, card reader, quiet
  • Cons: Power hungry, HDMI set up is frustrating, no DualShock feature in controller

Sony PlayStation 3

CNET
25 August 2008
  • Summary: Even though PS2 backward compatibility has been dropped from this version, the 80GB PS3 is still a superb Blu-ray player and high-definition game console.
  • Pros: Swanky design with quiet operation; all games in high-definition; PSP-like, easy-to-use interface; plays Profile 2.0 high-definition Blu-ray movies in addition to upscaling standard DVDs; built-in Wi-Fi; 80GB hard drive; HDMI output with 1080p support; no external power supply; free online gaming service.
  • Cons: Lacks full backward support for PS2 games; only comes with two USB ports; no infrared port means non-Bluetooth universal remotes aren't compatible; no flash card or memory reader; glossy black finish is a fingerprint magnet; online gaming, media, and commerce options not nearly as developed as Xbox Live.

Sony Premium 60 GB Playstation 3

Audio Video Revolution
27 July 2008
  • Excerpt: It was surreal on Friday November 17, 2006 a day that will live in infamy for gamers across the USA, to actually lay my hands on a virgin Sony Playstation 3 system. Eager customers waited as long as an entire week, camping outside of stores nationwide to be sure they would be first in line to experience Sony’s answer to the Microsoft Xbox 360.

Sony PlayStation 3 (2012)

PC Magazine
12 July 2008
  • Conclusion: The new Sony PlayStation 3 packs the same excellent gaming and media features and almost double the storage capacity into an even smaller case.
  • Pros: Smaller size. Larger hard drive.
  • Cons: Overall, feels slightly flimsier than the previous PlayStation 3. Sliding-door optical drive doesn't feel sturdy, and it feels like a step backward.

PC Magazine
7 July 2008
  • Conclusion: It may cost more, but as a high-definition gaming system and a high-quality Blu-ray player, the PlayStation 3 slays the competition.
  • Pros: Terrific gaming performance. Built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. Free networked gaming. Integrates a high-quality Blu-ray player. Supports Blu-ray Profile 2.0.
  • Cons: Costs more than competing consoles. Sony has removed memory card slots. Online features lag behind Microsoft's Xbox LIVE. No dedicated Blu-ray remote.

CNET
20 June 2008
  • Summary: With a smaller design, more energy-efficient operation, lower price tag, and built-in Blu-ray and multimedia capabilities, the PS3 Slim delivers a compelling package for an affordable price.

Sony PlayStation 3 review

Elite Bastards
12 June 2008
  • Conclusion: Perttu's thoughts: I could have written so much more about this console.  For example... Sony's vision, Home and Game 3.0? I don't want to market their promises about future content they should already be offering.  Go watch Sony's GDC '07 keynote. I watched it at GameSpot, but you can find it elsewhere too. Stored media and CD playback functionality? Uh why bother when I already have the Xbox for that sort of thing?
