                At a time when quality of life was drastically diminished due to economic strife, I considered the PS3 160GB as an alternative means to provide family entertainment. For $300, it was a vehicle that enhanced our home theater experience via high def video play, high end gaming experience as well as the ability to play music and provide a quick though somewhat clunky internet access. There was also the aspect of streaming video that I figured built in a little future proofing should I decide to go...

                  When I first got the PS3 I initially planned on using it mostly for playing games. Over the years, my use of the PS3 has evolved and changed, as has almost every device in my setup. My TV, receiver, Tivo, speakers, and media player have all changed. One of the only devices in my setup that hasn't is the PS3, excepting the move from the fat to slim model.

                    As only a casual gamer, I enjoy the blu-ray and demo features of the PS3.

Most of the games I play are the free demo's and the large hard drive can store plenty of them. There is also a large selection of used games available which is a cost-effective way to go if you don't need to have the latest and greatest.

                      The Playstation 3 is, in my opinion, the best console of the last generation. I use mine primarily for streaming video and gaming, and it's generally very easy to use. Video quality is very good, and the ability for it to downsample audio for older receivers is a huge plus in my book. Until recently, I was using an older receiver and this allowed me to experience the increased audio quality of Blu-Ray even though my receiver couldn't decode the uncompressed audio.
