  • Summary: Die-hard gamers would be better suited to the Xbox 360 and its huge library of top titles, but there’s no denying that the PS3 is an impressive machine of many home entertainment talents, should you be more media minded.

Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) 60GB

4 August 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 (2012)

PC Magazine

  • 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.

Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) Blu-ray Disc Player/Gaming Console Review

  • Conclusion: Also, over the course of just a few short weeks, two firmware upgrades were made available, each of which substantially improved the operation and functionality of the player. And over time, several more upgrades have been provided or announced to support Bonus View, BD-Live and DTS-HD decoding. This dedication to improvement is welcome and I wish more manufacturers would follow Sony's lead.
  • Pros: Sony PlayStation 3 80 GB Version on Amazon.com, Sony PlayStation 3 60 GB Version on Amazon.com (discontinued)

  • Conclusion: So we've come to the end of my tale. And if you are still reading this, then bravo! Most likely you skipped right to this part and you want to know, you want to know if $600 is really worth it.
  • Pros: Lots of functionality right out of the box, Free online play with dedicated servers, Quality Blu-Ray Player, Excellent potential
  • Cons: Very few games., No standout game as a system seller., Sync issues and other quirks with the controller

Sony PlayStation3 (80GB)

What Hi-Fi?
26 July 2008
  • Excerpt: There was a time when the Sony PlayStation 3 was our default Blu-ray player recommendation. It used to be the lowest-priced player on the market, but price is no longer on its side. The influx of affordable, standalone players makes it harder to justify buying a PlayStation3, and does it still do enough hold its own against the cut-price competition?
  • Pros: More than a Blu-ray player, load times, DVD upscaling and Blu-ray picture
  • Cons: Sounds bright, picture suffers from noise

  • Excerpt: Mise à jour du 30 novembre 2007 : Depuis le 10 octobre 2007, une nouvelle version "allégée" est en vente. Proposée à 400 euros, la capacité de son disque dur se limite à 40 gigaoctets. Ce modèle devrait à terme être le seul en vente, Sony envisagerait d'arrêter la production du modèle 60 Go. Le disque dur n'est pas la seule limitation. Ce nouveau modèle perd la rétrocompatibilité avec la PS2, ainsi que deux ports USB sur les quatre présents à l'origine.
  • Pros: Design soigné, fonctionnement silencieux, tous les jeux sont en haute définition, interface conviviale semblable à celle de la PSP, lit les films Blu-ray en haute définition en plus des DVD standard, connectivité Wi-Fi intégrée, disque dur de 60 Go, prise en charge prochaine de la technologie Bluetooth pour les manettes de jeu et accessoires sans fil, lecteurs de cartes mémoire intégrés, jeu en ligne gratuit, sortie HDMI avec support de la définition 1 080 p, absence ...

  • Summary: Компания Sony стремится превзойти Microsoft во всех отношениях. Она потратила много времени на совершенствование своих технологий, но вопрос об их зрелости пока остается открытым. Выступая на игровой выставке в Токио в середине сентября 2006 г., руководитель международного подразделения игр Sony Кен Кутараги критиковал ПК за постоянное усложнение операционных систем и потерю скорости реагирования в реальном времени.
  • Pros: Число пикселов на экране вдвое больше, чем у Xbox 360. По словам Хираи, пользователи смогут различать черты лица персонажей, настолько реалистичных, что по их выражению можно будет понять, лгут они или говорят правду.
  • Cons: В настоящее время нельзя предугадать, станет ли Blu-ray победителем в войне против HD DVD. Формат Blu-ray уже принес компании Sony головную боль…
