Sony PlayStation 3 (2012)

 

Sony has given the PlayStation 3 its second makeover since the game system first debuted in 2006. This new version is smaller than the "Slim" update from 2009 and sports an even bigger hard drive, offering 250GB and 500GB versions that put the original...

Smaller size. Larger hard drive

Overall, feels slightly flimsier than the previous PlayStation 3. Sliding-door optical drive doesn't feel sturdy, and it feels like a step backward

The new Sony PlayStation 3 packs the same excellent gaming and media features and almost double the storage capacity into an even smaller case.

Sony PlayStation 3 (120GB) Review - PCWorld

 

The most significant internal change is that switch from an 80GB hard drive to a 120GB unit. On its exterior, the PS3 (120GB) replaces the original version's glossy black finish with a duller black matte finish, and it smoothes out its predecessor's...

Smaller and lighter

Only two USB ports instead of four

Slim-line game console system stands out for its value, versatility, and options, and rates 4.5 stars for its efforts. As a Blu-ray player, it rates 3.5 stars; the Blu-ray disc images it outputs are good, but not as pleasing as those on our...

Sony PlayStation 3

 

Expensive for a game console, but a great bargain for a console plus a Blu-ray Disc player, the PS3 is worth the wait.

Integrated Blu-ray slot drive, Stunning graphics and HDMI output

Pricey if Blu-ray movie playback not needed, HDMI or component cables not included

Sony PlayStation 3 (40GB; as Blu-ray Disc Player)

 

Game console system doubles as a great Blu-ray Disc player, too.

Inexpensive Blu-ray player

Image quality falls flat, Remote costs extra

Nevertheless, the PS3 remains quite a deal if you want to play high-def Blu-ray movies and aren't wedded to getting a stand-alone home-theater-style device. Even factoring in the cost of the remote, you're getting a versatile, reasonably priced Blu-ray...

Sony Playstation 3

 

Lagging a full year behind the release of Microsoft's Xbox 360 and lacking the immediately attention-grabbing hook of Nintendo's 360-degree motion-sensing Wii, Sony's long-awaited PlayStation 3 has recently been the subject of much heated debate....

Amazing audiovisual performance; Blu-ray drive; future-proof hardware; backwards compatible

Price; no force-feedback; weak launch lineup; smudge-prone exterior; a few technical glitches

it's wholly feasible that this will be the true player's sole console companion of choice.
