It is such a shame that Sony messed up with delays, an expensive price tag and poor PR, because of the 3 next-gen consoles this has to be the best. I have had this for about a month now and I have had no problems with it. It doesn't suffer with the breakdown issues of the Xbox360 and is a lot more powerful. Games like Uncharted: Drakes Fortune really show what the PS3s powerful processor can do. As for memory, it is a lie that you are left with '7gb' as one reviewer has said. I still have 24GB left and I have movies, music and loads of games saves and updates on there. Not to mention full games titles such as 'Warhawk'. There is more than enough memory for the average gamer!! I'd love to know how many people are actually filling even half of their PS3s 40gb hard drive. This has the most potential of any machine on the market and puts out a fantastic HD picture! The upscaler works great on my DVDs and Blu-Ray movies - WOW! The operating system is simple to use, the online gameplay is free! I have loads of new online chums who I team up to play with, I simply send them a message or start a chat with them with headsets. It costs nothing unlike Xbox Live and is just as good!!!! There are always thousands of people online and I am not even paying for it. The playstation store is a great way of reliving old memories with PSOne game downloads and loads of other great content. The web browser works well and the WiFi is impressive, already built in. I find there is no lag when I game online wirelessly. This console looks better, it truly is sexy, glossy black, silver trim on the front. Attention to detail is amazing, even the little Playstation logo on the front twists so that you can have it stood upright or on its belly. The touch buttons look stylish and work great. No disk tray means that it can be tucked away nicely and finally the SIXAXIS controller works great, its light, has a good charge time and the motion sensor is great fun. In short buy one of these consoles, it is much misunderstood. You are getting an absolute bargain at this price.
