Pros:Smaller Body, Very Quiet, Lag-Free, Blu-Ray Player, Wifi, Netflix

Cons:Long Update, Accessories can be expensive, Most games are limited to 1 player

The Bottom Line: One of the best systems out there. Durable and Fun!


I bought this PS3 for my fiance after our old PS3 overheated and broke. Glad to say this one doesn't seem to lag or anything of the sort. One thing that you may want to keep in mind before buying the newer model is that a lot of them are only "some-what backwards compatible", meaning that they will play some PS2 games while they won't play others. Another downfall to the system is that accessories can be very expensive, the console comes with one controller, but you can end up spending over $50 for additional ones; and even more than that if you want the limited edition items. The last downfall with the system is that updates take a long time, and installing the games onto the hard-drive takes a while as well. But if those are not a huge issue then it's a great buy!

I'd say another downfall for some is the PS3 seems to aim more toward RPG style games over games such as FPS. If that's a major issue I'd strongly suggest looking at an Xbox, but I've found that the console on the PS3 is MUCH more durable and I get an overall better experience playing on this system than I have with any other system.
