"Excellent"
4 stars"

A brilliant piece of hardware that has been perfected. magnificently engineered. Great games and an excellent solid, fast global network. Absolutely brilliant.

This is true next generation gaming that is built to last an entire generation. PS3 is not something you will sell two years down the track because it's out of date. PS3 is future proof, an investment following on from the PS2 which is still selling new in the shops. I can see the ‘out of the box’ hard disk being the only thing needing updating, ( 4.5 stars ).

It's a shame that people judge PS3 on its release price and date.

My 2 cents of the console war: I believe that the majority of people who are bad mouthing the PS3, are impulse buyers who are easily sucked in by clever marketing. Usually children.

"Better Varity"
4 stars"

I personally think that the PS2 had such a large variety compared to the Xbox that if this is any indication to the PS3/360 then PlayStation will hands down beat the 360 as even though 360 gaes are good you eventually get bored of them and then there isn't much too replace them.

"PS3 to record TV...?"

PS3 to Become Freeview TV Recorder?

New Zealand Sony exec reckons it's happening next year.

UK, August 1, 2007 – Not content with the fact it already plays games, Blu-ray discs, old PlayStation stuff and music, Sony's New Zealand sales and marketing manager Warwick Light says that next year the PlayStation 3 is set to become a TV recorder rather like Sky+ or TiVo.

Speaking to New Zealand newspaper The Press, Light said: “We're also hoping next year – about the same time that Freeview launches its terrestrial broadcasting service (expected to be in March) – to release a digital tuner for the PS3, turning it into a programmable TV recorder.”

Unfortunately Sony UK refused to comment on Light's state­ment. (IGN)

Featuring cutting-edge high-definition graphics and sound, 60GB of hard disk drive storage space and a revolutionary wireless motion-sensing controller, the Sony PlayStation 3 serves as a platform to enjoy next generation computer entertainment contents in the home, realized through the combination of Cell and RSX processors, in addition to the playability of a vast catalog of PlayStation and PlayStation 2 software titles.

Having Giga-bit Ethernet and a pre-installed hard disk drive as standard in PlayStation 3, users will be able to download a variety of content as well as access on-line games and services over the network.

Equipped with basic input/output ports, PlayStation 3 supports a broad range of displays from conventional NTSC/PAL standard TVs to the latest full HD (1080i/1080p) flat panel displays, offering the joy of the most advanced computer entertainment contents to homes around the world. For use in living rooms, maximum heat and noise reduction has been achieved with a noise level equivalent to that of the current slim-line PlayStation 2.

With the overwhelming computational power of the Cell processor, PlayStation 3 is capable of playing back content from Blu-ray (BD) disc at a bit rate of multiplex 48Mbps with ease, the maximum bit rate defined in BD standards.

The new controller for PlayStation 3 has been created by refining and improving the world’s most popular PlayStation controller which has shipped more than several hundred million units worldwide. The controller for PlayStation 3 employs a high-precision, highly sensitive six-axis sensing system that is capable of processing all parameters within the controller itself, thereby eliminating the need for any additional settings on the display system.
