Ok i have a 60GB PS3, it's great fun,great to play online just amazing in every way.
I'd read this before the rest although the rest is also important:
Why get a 60GB PS3? Well the only real profit to getting a 60GB PS3 is the backward compatibility with PS2 and selected PlayStation 1 games not that many people use it! Apart from that the metal is chrome not some rubbish plasticky stuff, there is a car reader cleverly snuck away with a little plastic flip up on the end and 4 USB slots on the front of the console.
Why PS3 over all the other consoles?
- Unlike the XBOX console virtually everything is given to you upon purchase so: Wireless capabilities [XBOX - £50], a state of the art BLU-Ray player now this is the son to be sucessor of DVD and you will see in time DVDs being replaced more & more by the Blu ray disk like VHS and DVD [can cost £1000s], Wireless controller [Xbox - cant recharge batteries £15 charger kit same with Wii or you have to buy batteries. Where as PS3 can charge the controller with a simple usb in to controller which it supplies and all PS3s have at least 2 USB slots], the internet gaming is free [XBOX live = aprox. £50 a year, PS3 - 8 million odd users in not even a year of being out which is bound to increase rapidly.] exclusive games much like xbox apart from PS3 has God of War, Heavenly Sword, Resistance, Haze [ which is rubbish lol], Killzone 2, Motorstorm, Little Big Planet and a couple of others already out. So these are just a few advantages of having a PS3 as well as the hard drive which i updated mine in a bout 2 minutes as it is cheap to buy and is the same as a laptop hard drive you don't need to be a technical wizz to do it just check out a youtube video tutorial 5 minutes walkthrough.
With PS3 you buy so much more than just a console with remote play so you can connect your PSP to your PlayStation 3, the PlayStation eye and the PS2 eye toy are usable for video chats, you have the blu ray player for amazing graphics, and you can watch very very high quality films on it, a space to hold your photos, game saves, music, videos, you can download videos from the PlayStation network and so much more.
There isn't much space to talk about all the pros for the PlayStation but there are only 2 real cons to it:v Ok I think that the 60GB model has had the most going wrong with it with the yellow light - Where if you switch on the console next time it switches on for 1 seconds then a orange and yellow light then back to the old red light [meaning standby], apart from the yellow light there is also the disk reading which may go wrong. Those are the ONLY TWO THINGS which have ever been reported, i had the yellow light a while ago. I had the yellow light about 3 weeks after there were no more 60GB PS3s around so i had to send of to SONY, not joking 2 days with a refurbished one. So they can still get you one back and for me was very quick.
