Gaming console, media center, internet capable and blu-ray support. I can't ask for more from a console. Plus online gaming is free and you don't have to pay for it like on other consoles...see Xbox

I don't use the PS3 so much for gaming, but I do use it as great deal as a media center machine. We use it to watch TV shows and Movies that I have stored on an external HDD attached to my computer, and also to watch Movies and such on Netflix and...

A great console. Fast, good UI, and of course, blu-ray. You also get the majority of games, although I am still left wanting for some of the MS exclusives. Makes my Wii look like a last gen console.

An awesome console which i was using it alot for gaming. I used PS1, PS2 and then PS3 trio are the awesome. Specially PS3 was very good. Although its CDs is too costly in our country but overall its good for us. It has very good graphics and options too.

PS3 is a great game machine but far better media center machine. We own two and use them continuously. No piece of electronics in our home is on more. We use them as BD players, for Netflix, for Hulu, for games, etc.

Love my 80GB Phat PS3! Last one to have PS2 emulation, so I can still rock my Katamari Damacy (original is STILL the best one) and We Love Katamari. I use my PS3 with PlayOn Media Server to stream video, pictures, and music to my TV from my home...

I love PS3! Blu-ray, 3D, and the best gaming I have seen. I play Halo on the 360, but all other console games on this system!

PS3 is awesome. Great for gaming. I also got to program some HPC software on a cluster of PS3's at my school. Their 7 cell processor is a lot of fun to work with.
