PS3 Consoles

  • Component Video Support
  • Wireless Controller Bluetooth (up to 7)
ICON Loading...

Designed to be an integral part of home entertainment, the Sony PlayStation 3 goes beyond being simply a gaming console. It delivers uncompressed and unconverted digital picture and sound into your existing audio and video equipment. The PS3 delivers full 1080p HD resolution with 128-bit pixel precision and supports Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1 and Linear PCM 7.1 audio.

Make no mistake; however, the PS3 brings the kind of gaming action demanded of seventh generation consoles. IBM's cell processor and a co-developed Nvidia graphics processor combine to perform over two trillion calculations per second for immersive gaming environments and instantaneous on-screen response. The revolutionary Sixaxis controller takes game input beyond button mashing by sensing the movement of the entire controller. Changes in position and angle can be used to control movements on screen in games that support the technology.

The PS3 includes Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi technology to connect controllers and other peripherals wirelessly. The console can also connect both to the internet and to Sony's online community, the PlayStation Network where players can compete against opponents from around the world. Players can also connect their PlayStation Portable for more expanded game play with both systems. The Blu-Ray media drive built into each PS3 is the new default standard for high definition video and will play movie discs in that format as well as supporting CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-R, DVD+R and DVD-ROM formats.

  • newegg Built-in Blu-ray Disc Drive With the built-in Blu-ray disc drive, experience high-definition gaming and theatre-quality video and audio like never before!
  • newegg High Definition Video Support with HDMI Connect the Sony PlayStation 3 to an HDMI-compatible TV via an HDMI cable and you can enjoy high-definition video playback at up to 1080p resolution.
  • newegg Broadband Ethernet and Wireless Network Connectivity The Sony PlayStation 3 provides broadband Ethernet and wireless network connectivity for access to various online services such as playing online games, accessing downloadable content, and staying connected with your friends online.
  • newegg Large 80GB Storage Capacity The Sony PlayStation 3 provides a large 80GB storage capacity so you can save your movies, music, applications and games for easy access.
  • newegg Bluetooth Technology The Sony PlayStation 3 features Bluetooth 2.0 (EDR) technology that delivers broad compatibility with various Bluetooth devices and provides a superior operating range for the ultimate wireless freedom.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat system, best on the market, but they are all good

Pros: Clean interface, great customer service, free online play, dedicated servers when playing online (360 does not have them), blu-ray!, great exclusive games, amazing graphics, huge processing power, remote play sync, great indie psn games, upcoming services like Home, stable hardware, LINUX!, easily upgradeable harddrive, ability to use your choice in hardware (headsets, hdd, etc), internet browser, bluetooth, charge kit for controllers is included (and is simply a usb cord), hdmi 1.3, runs quiet, matches most contemporary decor, looks amazing on any HD tv.

Cons: Attracts dust and fingerprints, smaller library of games (although this is changing rapidly), Sony tends to delay things...alot, b/c is iffy at best (although in my experience with the 360, neither system has perfected it), horrible EA ports of multiplatform games.

Other Thoughts: It must be said that the bluray drive is 2x speed, but it should be noted that the bluray laser takes in much more information than a dvd laser. Xbox360 has an 8x (or is it 12?) dvd drive, but the bluray can take in the same amount of info, so fanboys on either side should not include this as an argument (see clv vs cav). As technology grows even better, I believe that the ps3 will reign supreme over the 360, simply because the hardware is much, much more powerful and stable. 50gb as composed to <8gb is one of the main arguments for this. Developers must compress games up to 50% on the xbox360, which in the end is cheating the consumer. I have had extensive experience with both systems, and I truly believe that the ps3 is the better system, but the 360 is great too. Before buying either system, you should do your research and choose the one best for you. Both systems are marketed at different audiences, so you should take that into account. psn: remo451

5 out of 5 eggsdoes what I bought it for... to entertain

Pros: This system has done exactly what I bought it for...to entertain myself. Looks absolutly stunning on an HDTV (if you don't have one your robbing yourself). I look back to some of the older systems, that I still love and play, but I just feel like some how the graphics and gameplay on those systems got worse when this system came out. True it has a very high price range, however I think it is justified with the extras it comes with. Everybody knows the difference between the 360 and ps3. I'm not gonna bag on the 360 because it doesn't come with such and such a device or explodes and causes mass destruction like some people claim. The 360 is a good system however it has some problems, just like the ps3, and it has many pros, just like the ps3. However in my opinion(keyword) it is better then the 360 because of the following: Comes with an HD-player, I like the User Interface it is simple and clean, and to be quite honest I like this system because it does what I want it to do.

Cons: There are quite a few cons for this system, but I don't belive that lowers may rating in anyway. For all of you who think this system is the perfect system and there are no flaws and that the 360 or any other system for that matter is under this one, your just being prejudice. This system has flaws. Every system has flaws. First off there are not nearly enough games for this system, yet. Second it gets hot. However this only becomes a problem when you put the system in an enclosed area. Give it enough room to breath and it is fine. I've run mine for more the 24 hours without a problem. Thrid, Lets face it the online just sucks. Also the controllers are too small (XBox's are better). Probably the con that bothers me the most is that you can't listen to music and do other things at the same time. I mean come on who really plays a song and just sits there and watches the ambience. I can't just put music on and go do something else, I won't be able to hear it.

Other Thoughts: I believe that this system has not reached it's full potential and that better things are yet to come. If you are looking for a system that will entertain you, play bluerays, and an assortment of other small features (home videos, music, pictures, etc.) then this is the system for you. It has a line of great games coming out(resistece2, motorstorm2, haze, soul caliber IV, the force unleashed, and more), and came entertain you for hours.

5 out of 5 eggsBest console, despite whatever people say

Pros: awsome quality (unlike the 360) reliable hardware, easy learning curve for the XMB, VERY strong future software lineup, Dualshock is BACK!!! Free online support (which is how it should be MS, hint, hint) Reasonable price for the features packed in, firmware upgradable which leads to longer lifecycle.

Cons: Why did it take almost 2 years for the games to come out? well i guess it happens to every system.

Other Thoughts: look at the wii. and somehow it still sells. i just got done with my SIXTH 360, and im never buying one again. sorry but it was just too much headache, by the time it was all said and done, i couldve been through 3 different games on the PS3! if you think about it, whichever system you get, you get one heck of a deal.

3 out of 5 eggsDissapointing

Pros: Blu-ray is good, the media card slots are a godsend with the ability to play all my avi files. has some fun games and does have motion. Free game motorsotom. solid

Cons: Blu ray means slower loading times. not many good games. controler is like a decade outdated and not ergnomic at all. Collects dust better than any rag i have tried. motion feals really tacked on.

Other Thoughts: i just feel so dissipointed with this its like they didnt really try. i do have a 360 and a wii, i did get them first even when my 360 broke i didnt pl ps3 as much i use it to watch movies on my HDTV tho and it does that really well. still i do enjoy it every once in a while psn id: gliff159

4 out of 5 eggsOld Stock

Pros: Great system, best ever made.

Cons: The unit I purchased had a manufacture date of March 07, not sure where they are getting these from as no other retailer has them anymore. Unit's manufactured after nov 07 should have the 65nm cpu and possibly the 65nm GPU.

Other Thoughts: This unit still uses the 90nm CPU and hence is much louder than the 40gb version. The 40gb is so silent it's amazing. I think I was spoiled by the 40gb and could not tolerate the extra fan noise generated by this unit.
If you don't mind the extra fan noise this unit makes it's still a great buy, includes 4 USB ports and media care readers.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat System

Pros: The built-in Blu-Ray profile 2.0 support, 1080p resolution support, and HDMI output make this system a must if you like movies and have a high-def TV. The blu-ray also gives programers more space to work with with future games. The sytem is very powerful and has a ton of gaming potential. It also works great for media center capabilities. Playing on-line with the PS3 doesn't require a subscription service.

Cons: At the moment there aren't that many really good games for the system, although there seem to be some very promising ones on the horizon. Sony's on-line content store is pretty clunky and needs to be redesigned.

Other Thoughts: I really think that with Blu-Ray having won the high-def market, and Sony's track record for great support, that this system is the system to buy if you are looking for a high end gaming system.

5 out of 5 eggsSo much left unsaid

Pros: Blue ray, WIFI, SD card reader, bluetooth just for starters. HDD can be formated and Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (7.04)can be loaded allowing it to serve as both a gaming console and a sylish desktop computer. Also updates are just a click away using the internet. So many options you just need to find someone who has one and sit down and play with all the features..

Cons: For the money this thing should have come with all applicable cables and an extra controller! Didn't even come with an HDMI cable I was just a little upset when I saw that.

Other Thoughts: Sony needs to work on their advertising, "Plays well with PSP". Who cares about the PSP this thing has so many features that no one is talking about. You just have to get your hands on one for yourself to understand.

5 out of 5 eggsI Own Them All

Pros: This system is by far the greatest of the three "next-gen" systems. It not only has a kick-a lineup of games (out now and coming out this year) but it offers Bluray support and full 1080p HD video output. I love having all of my media in one spot, I have tons of music and movies on this thing and I still have 25GB left (I own the 60GB version, which is best in my opinion). This thing never overheats and the noise level is relatively low compared to my XBox 360. I also love the customizability of the system, being able to put Linux on there is just awesome.

Cons: I would have to say that the six axis controls in games doesn't really work as well as it should, seems a little gimmicky. Some games it works flawlessly (Warhawk) and others not so much (Lair).

Other Thoughts: I have had this thing since it came out (I own the 60GB version) and I also own the Wii and 360. Out of the three this gets the most playtime with games, movies, and everything else.

If you buy one you HAVE to buy Warhawk, Resistance, Call of Duty 4, and Rainbow Six Vegas 2.

My PSN i.d. is: eosmera

5 out of 5 eggsgreat system!

Pros: This is simply an amazing system. The graphics and speed are unbelievable, and the overall utility and quality of the machine is great. Upscales normal DVDs to near Blue-ray quality (yes, I have some BR movies too). In about a month of ownership, I have had only one lock-up and only noticed framerate issues a couple times, and never for an extended period of time. Free online access!

Cons: Plastation Network is a little clunky, but works. The breadth of games isn't great, but the ones that are available, especially new ones (COD4, Burnout Paradise) are fantastic. Backwards compatibility was reduced slightly to reduce costs, so don't rely on being able to play ALL your old games (although there's a good chance you can). Not many great multiplayer (split screen) games.

Other Thoughts: I love my PS3! To truly appreciate this machine, it MUST be paired with a HDTV. Then, it's nothing short of AMAZING!! Otherwise, it seems like a glorified PS2. Before purchasing my PS3, I looked extensively into all three systems (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii). I was almost sold on Xbox, until I saw everything included in the PS3 (wireless enet, blue ray, bluetooth, free online access, more media/usb ports, upscaling dvds, etc). It truly is a complete multimedia platform. Some college kids do homework on them!! Halo is the only advantage Xbox has (other than more current games), as a great multiplayer FPS. PS3 needs a Halo-competitor.
