Summary: I'll be honest ... I was a Sony fan from the 90s who had lapsed. I decided to test the waters after with an entry level purchase of a DVD player for the den. After less than a year (10 months) with my new DVD player it died. Took it into the Sony store and got my replacement, the DVP-SR510H. This 'replacement' lasted 14 months! Are these now throw-away pieces that are only supposed to last for a year? I've gotten more years out of a off-brand DVD player than this.
Ps3 REALLY SUCKS ESPECIALLY IN COMPARISON TO Xbox 360

Excerpt: ps3 nice try onto the market but epic fail ..i do not like the fact that the ps3 dosent offer the fun option of the blades or new system of way to keep track of everything from new demos to current new and free demos other features of the xbox360 include market place downloads and using points to buy xbox original games ...ps3 has free but slow and very slippy like internet that reminds me of dial up...
Excerpt: I wanted a system to be able to play online games and keep my mega-computer virus free. Store was sold out of the XBox and I wanted something now so I ponied up (sucker!) for the playstation with all the bells and whistles, so I really screwed myself. I'll be honest. I generally HATE Sony. This only furthered my dislike of that company.
Was great while it lasted, but it didn't last long!

Excerpt: I got the PS3 80gb a few months after it first came out as a gift for my husband. We looked forward to both the blu-ray option and the game and internet availability. We used it to watch blu-ray and dvd movies more than we actually played video games on it, and it was great. But after paying more than $400 originally, I expected it to last A LOT longer than it did.
Excerpt: I can tell you so, anyone can tell you so! the Sony PlayStation 3 (60GB) is the worst gaming console out on the market, I mean, it has so many great games on it but most of it is exclusive which sucks because I would rather play it on an Xbox 360 rather than the PS3. Anywyas, they talk about it becing the best of next gen with its dvd stuff. which is nothing impressive, i mean the xbox 360 can play dvds too. The Playstation 3 also hasa A heating problem.
Excerpt: The playstation three is one of the worst consoles I have ever purchased! I purchased the console and rarely played it probably only once or twice and after one of the updates the whole thing stopped working, even though I put less than 20 hours on the machine, the blu ray drive gave out after a year even though it wasn’t used.
Excerpt: The ps3 is the weak step brother of this generation of consoles. The wii is the flashy one of the group, trying to stand out from the group and being different. The leader of this group is the xbox 360. You can get 1000s of cheap good games for like $20 or less for the xbox 360. You cant say that for the ps3. Even weak C/B games never drop in price for the ps3 but there is always A+ games for cheap on the xbox 360.
Excerpt: The ps3 is great for one reason and one reason only... the blu ray player otherwise it isn't worth the steep price tag. The games are the same as xbox 360 and few are just for the ps3. The games lag and loading takes forever. It's cheaper than a blu ray player though so if you want a blu ray a ps3 is the best but for gameplay it is a no.
Excerpt: I am going to start by saying "Sony Playstation3" is a company that legally gets away with stealing peoples money and there is nothing us common folk can do about it. OK....... I am going to start from the beginning. Last year June 2008 to be exact i bought my son a PS3 and it cost me $564.00 with no games and came with 1 controller. Last week my son tells me "Mom my PS3 has the yellow ring of death", I say "well... What is that?
