PlayStation 3 Slim review (late 2012): is the third time a charm?


More Info Sony announces a slimmer PlayStation 3, 250GB bundle launches September 25th for $269 Sony PlayStation 3 (2012) up close and

Half the weight of the original PS3 ; Extremely quiet

More expensive than previous model ; Top-loading disc tray ; Glossy exterior attracts dust, fingerprints

The newest PlayStation 3 is a step down from its predecessor, with a higher price, illogically placed disc tray and a glossy, fingerprint-prone finish.

Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) Blu-ray Disc Player/Gaming ConsoleReview


As an interesting side effect of convergence and cross-promotion, Sony's next generation gaming console, the PlayStation 3 is one of the more advanced offerings in the Blu-ray Disc Player market, and also one of the least expensive. But can it really...

Update (4/15/08): With Sony's latest firmware upgrade (version 2.30), the PS3 now supports DTS-HD decoding as well as BD-ROM profile 2.0, a.k.a. "BD-Live" making this the first (and currently only) Blu-ray Disc player to support the new Web-enabled...

Sony PlayStation 3 Entertainment Console


Sony has always done its own thing. Between ridiculously proprietary MiniDisc, ATRAC file format, Memory Stick technology, Betamax tape format, Clie PDAs, Blu-ray, unique and unfathomably hard to find accessories, and a raft of other pointless and...

The Sony PlayStation 3 has incredible potential along with a feature set that is at the top of the heap right now. Considering the length of these product lifecycles, Sony is likely to be the technology leader for at least three years. Good titles are...

The PS3 does not upscale movie DVDs to high definition (HD). Using the controller within movie menu systems is fussy. The worldwide product launch was terrible, with ridiculously short supplies of the console. Sony essentially missed the 2006 American...

Playstation 3


As the long wait for the much-anticipated PlayStation 3 game console dragged on, gamers started to joke that Sony stood for Soon, Only Not Yet.

Great graphics, Included Blu-Ray Drive, Enjoyable games ;

Menu unintuitive in places, Cost ;

At the heart of the PlayStation 3 lies a CPU that'll impress even the most hardcore PC gamer. This powerful, multicore Cell processor, jointly developed by Sony, Toshiba, and IBM, runs at 3.2 GHz. An RSX Reality Synthesizer graphics engine, based on...

Sony PlayStation 3 (2012) review


Sony's console slips on a new outfit for its third outing. Has it got the look or is it gaming mutton dressed as plastic lamb?

Plays games and Blu-rays Tidier design Ton of games out there

No HDMI cable in the box New disc tray feels cheap and nasty

Is the latest Super Slim PS3 better than the old one? To an extent the question’s moot: before long it’ll be the only version you can buy, and despite its relative age Sony has managed to keep it relevant with heaps of new features and functions. On...

Sony Playstation 3 Slim


When it first launched a couple of years back, the Sony Playstation 3 offered unprecedented power and gaming performance. In a bid to keep it fresh, Sony launched a new, slimmer Playstation 3. The components are pretty similar, but read on to find if...

That said, the Sony PS3 Slim is still an impressive achievement, and it easily ranks among the best gaming consoles ever. Slimmer, neater and packed with features, it's definitely a must have. Sony Playstation 3 Slim is tagged with Sony Playstation 3...

I had to replace it and pay 100$ for it to be fixed, all 3 Sony controllers that I bought within a 4 year period have died or malfunctioned in some way. the controller build is horrible. Sony continues to sell them for crazy prices but have them...

A great console for the Decade


I used to warn the PS3 community and it's developers back in 2008 of the unsecured way the PS3 handles user information. Any person in the family can just "Login" to your account, if you have the password saved, and purchase anything they like at any...

The cheapest Blue Ray player so far that I've seen ; 320GB for less than $400.00. Back in the "days" (like 3 years ago) the 160GB, 4-USB slot PS3 costs $800.00. That was a significant drop ; Excellent GPU, and quality of graphics ; Syncs well with the...

It's quite secure now (asks password when purchasing) than what it was a few years ago, but probably still has holes in it ; The MOVE controller looks like women's "fun-time" toy ; It cannot read certain USB drives, but it always read smaller...

Eggcelent Product


This is what I mean by Pro #3 (Distributes Heat evenly) Simply do a test yourself. Play on your console with it horizontal laying flat on a sturdy surface then lift up the PS3 and feel the bottom of the PS3 compared to the top. The bottom should be...

1) Perfect fit ; 2) Very Stable (Vertical) ; 3) Distributes Heat evenly ; 4) Made by SONY

1) Hard to get Item due to Out of Stock
