Sony PlayStation 3 ( 160GB)

6 March 2009
  • 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...
  • 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 Xb...

Expert Review

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...
  • 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 so...

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...

Sony PlayStation 3 review

  • 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.

They say it got smart: a 2008 review of the PS3

Ars Technica
5 June 2008
  • Conclusion: We didn't give the PS3 much love when it first launched. Parts of the system plain didn't work, the online play was all over the place, and the software support was limited, at best. Multiplatform games played noticeably worse than their Xbox 360 counterparts.
  • Pros: The best Blu-ray player on the market, Rock solid hardware with a minimal defect rate, Excellent media functions across the board, Dual Shock 3 is a great controller, with many options for creative developers, Online store has no upper limit on size of games, Storage is a snap to upgrade, Excelle...
  • Cons: Home has seen too many delays, Online play still doesn't measure up to Xbox, Backwards compatibility seems to be going the way of the dodo in newer models, Focus on media could take away from gaming aspects of the system, Don't think that numerical scores are coming back, but since we're re-ratin...

Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) 60GB

17 April 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...
  • Pros: Blu Ray player, graphics, card reader, quiet
  • Cons: Power hungry, HDMI set up is frustrating, no DualShock feature in controller

Sony PlayStation 3 (2012)

PC Magazine
10 April 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.
