 Great for Blu-Ray movies, poor as a games console

Owning all the next Gen console's Wii, X360 and PS3 I was honestly excited about the PS3's home multi-media hub potential. This box of tricks really is a fantastic piece of technology, unfortuantly though, it is lacking in the gaming department at the moment.

As the list of Blu-Ray disks grows bigger daily. It seems to me at the moment it is the next gen home movie format to support in the UK - New releases are enjoying both a DVD and Blu-Ray simultaneous release.

The Player is Great, This packages comes with an HDMI cable so you can enjoy the full 1080p (If your TV supports it) off the PS3, I would however recommend upgrading the cable if you have an expensive HDTV as it is not a great cable. Disks like Casino Royale, Black Hawk Down, Ultra Violet are excellent. The supplied Click Blu Ray movie is also an excellent film but doesn't really show case the Next Gen appeal. The player does have a little trouble with slow motion tracking, almost like the frame rate is reduced, I'm sure sony will come up with a firmware update to fix this.

To be honest, this is all I am using the PS3 for - except to play some of the Playstation's back catologue available.

Don't get me wrong, I am a gamer but right here right now. No game on the Playstation can touch any of the Xbox 360's top 20 games. Resitance: FOM is poor (I'm the only reviewer here who thinks so) - as is Genji but Motorstorm is fun and Motorstorm is the only game with the exception of the downloadable Gran Tourismo HD (or 5) that shows off the consoles awesome power.

As yet there are no Surround sound Recievers out that can take advantage of the PS3's capability to output Audio uncompressed (PCM) know as Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master Audio. However, there are some about to be released very soon.

When these come out the PS3 will be an even better next gen movie player.

I am sure that as games like Metal Gear solid 4, Tekken and Gran Tourismo come out that the gaming side of things will improve. However these and Grand Theft Auto 4 (also on X360) have been put back to Easter 2008.

The controller is also to light and small for me. In the word's of Will Smith from Men in Black - I feel like I'm gonna brrak the thing. Sony also removed the rumble feature from it and the USB cable to charge the Control i only about 50cm's long. So if you run out of juice you have to sit in front of your TV whilst it charges. For me this is a major flaw, but in this package at least you get two.

But for me, the Xbox 360, Wii and PS3 sitting under my TV, I hammer my Xbox360 for playing games (and the occasional HD DVD), play the Wii for a laugh with my family, and watch Blu-Ray movies and DVD's from the PS3.

Want a games machine get an X360

Want to have family fun get a Wii

Want a next gen movie player get a PS3.

Who knows, in a 6 months or so maybe sony will crack the other niches, but for now, it doesn't. Its gaming catologue is small, many ports from Xbox 360, such as Rainbow 6, GRAW2 the darkness etc... Sony really haven't got many exclusive games right now. Bring on 2008!!

Some think £425 is alot. I think its great value for a CAN DO everything machine. Even though the web browser is difficult to see. And at £425, this package of £100 worth of games, a £30 controller £10 HDMI cable and £20 Blu Ray moive is great, great value.

The PS3's silent running is fantastic, just where are the games. However, if your already an Xbox360 owner, looking to get a PS3 you will be dissapointed, wondering whether to plunge into X360 or PS3 next gen gaming, I must, must recommend the X360 for its extensive Gaming catalogue, fantastic exclusive titles and brilliantly simple online play.

 everything other than ps3 is free

you pay £425. the rrp for just the ps3 is £425, therefore you get genji, resistance, click, an extra sixiaxis and hdmi free. and even withiout the amazing deal this would be worth getting.

 Excellent piece of hardware.

I bought this game at its release and have upgraded its hard drive to suit my needs. Plays well and is a brilliant Blu-ray player.

However there are three major flaws with the console in general.

1. The games. There aren't really any exclusives out currently to hold your interest for too long. Don't fret, some masterpieces are on their way.

2. Online. Not nearly as good as Xbox Live. Sure it's free and everything but it lags, no content outside of Sony software. I bought this for a single player so this does not bother me much.

3. Marks the era where the computer and consoles combine. We all saw it coming but now it has become so clear that Sony (with all these USELESS features) are merging the market. So ends the classic generation.

Note: I am not a fanboy. I have every next gen console and enjoy them for different things.

Xbox 360- Excels for multiplayer and downloadable content.

Wii- Local family entertainment.

PS3- For the exclusives, single player and cinematic experience.
