                Sony did A/V enthusiasts a solid when they released the initial version of Playstation 3 way back in Q4, 2006. With the ability to play the next level of games, and an included blue ray player to boot, people clamored over each-other to get their hands on one for a cool $500.00 (20gb HDD) or $600.00 (60gb HDD). Taking a loss on each unit sold, Sony gambled that the blue ray would become the media of the future, and after a brief battle with Toshiba's HD-DVD technology, ( supported by XBOX 360 w...

                  The PS3 is one of the best blu-ray players on the market. It can be a bit slower to start a movie than some, but not by more than a few seconds. It gets frequent firmware updates, a worry with some players. Has apps for Netflix and other media streaming sources. The standard game controller works well enough for media, but the (sold-separately) media remote is very slick, and uses bluetooth rather than IR. It's reasonably quiet, as long as it has some breathing room. Also seems to be extremely ...

                    We have had a PS3 for years now and while we have a sony slimline in the bedroom we never use it. The PS3 system is so versatile it is amazing that it was pushed as a gaming system. When I worked in retail they said to always sell it as a gaming system, I never did know of the awesome Bluray/3D capabilities until I quit retail and wanted to expand my system at home and everywhere I read reviews (including this forum) everyone bragged on the PS3 so I bought it and have been happy every since.

                      Aside from being a gaming console, the Playstation 3 is quite a versatile home theater box. I've got an Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Roku LT, and while all are great, none of them quite do everything. The Xbox and PS3 are both great gaming consoles in their own rights, but the Xbox doesn't pack a Blu-ray player, and the PS3 leaves just a little to be desired from streaming options compared to the Xbox. I've either console in separate rooms of my house, and the reason I have the third multimedia...

                        I can't think of anything to say than PS3 is a must have and simply amazing!  I just had to give it up (sadly) because I can't find extra time to play at home anymore and my nephew can take care of it than I do so now, I'm thinking of buying PS4 and hoping this time, I could really play. I never had any problem with my PS 3 before!
