Summary: After years I had this system it seems really good. Graphics are great gaming is good and using the internet alone is good. The only major issue is the PSN will be kicking me out very frequently for everything I do that involves the PSN which the issue is the UPnP which is directly built into the system. I would recommend this system if you don't plan on playing online and just a casual person playing story lines. But it is really good system just the PS network is bad.
Excerpt: This system is great if you don't have any playstation 2 games that are blue discs, not to be confused with blue-ray. Basically if you don't want to install final fantasy online, or play certain ps2 and ps1 games then your set. If you plan to install FFXI or play games like gauntlet dark legacy (one of my kids favorites) then get the 60 gig version.
If it had backwards compatibility it would be perfect.

Excerpt: The Playstation 3 has beautiful graphics. The bluetooth controls are easy to use. The decision to have full functional USB ports is great and allows additions such as keyboards. The one down fall is the poor choice by Sony in removing the backwards compatibility from the original PS3. I would list it as the greatest system made to this point, except for this flaw.
Excerpt: Sony's PS3 is indeed the next generation of video games, yet no one would know this. Although it has a monstrous Blu-Ray HD DVD player that has amazing sound and picture when hooked up to a 1080p television through an HDMI, no games fully utilize the sound or picture quality, which is sad. Many of the games are not worthy of PS2, let alone PS3!
Excerpt: its a pretty good system overall. much better quality then last years playstation 2. i dont understand what all the "hype" was when it first came out though. honestly its a bit over rated. we played madden on both the xbox 360 and the playstation 3.....its way better on xbox360 then the ps3. now for that reason we had to buy both systems for our boys. was disappointed by that. movie quality is pretty good on the ps3. but in all honesty for the price.... its too high.
Excerpt: when we first heard of the ps3 we couldnt wait to get one, so we waited a while and purchased one about 6 months ago, my husband played it about 3 times then he tried to turn it on it wouldnt come on it keept going on and off on and off finally after about 10 tries it came on and stayed on then he turned it off and the next day it done the same thing, we was suppose to have sent it in but we just took it back, our friend had one that done the same thing he sent his off...
