    Just super, the product is made wonderfully, very satisfied.

    In general, I try to avoid getting into arguments between PS3 and Xbox, but in this case I simply can't help myself and strongly recommend that you get PS3. Judge for yourself: a user-friendly interface, a high-quality Blu-ray drive, a free online gaming service, a web browser, Wi-Fi connectivity, the option to connect up to seven (!) gamepads, enjoyable play with other people, quality exclusives, and solid visuals — this console has everything a gamer could want. In addition, bring a copy of…

    • 1) A Blu-ray drive; 2) WiFi; 3) A small form factor; 4) A matte finish (which means that it is not readily stained); and 5) Virtually no overheating. 6) A large capacity for the hard disk; 7) Convenient controller (not for everyone); 8) Exclusive games; 9) Excellent multimedia center; 10) Access to a web browser; 11) Free service on the PlayStation Network; 12) A user-friendly drive (the disk rolls in and out, which is both a practical and aesthetically pleasing feature).
    • In and of themselves, there are no drawbacks. A extremely slow web browser is the sole significant drawback; therefore, a personal computer is the better option.

    This is probably the best console to date. Why hack such a beautiful device - I do not understand. All games are worth their money! The PSN account is free, as is the multiplayer. Not like xbox - 2500 a year. I think that this console is worth buying for everyone who likes to play their favorite games in the evening. Or with friends - a few gamepads. Or buy a PS Move, it's generally fun.

    • 1. Excellent graphics in games 2. Support 3D 3. Great design 4. At first I thought that it was on passive cooling, then I listened at night - there is a fan. But he is not heard! 5. Practically does not heat up. 6. The drive is omnivorous. 7. Very very powerful WiFi module. 8. Quite a few exclusives. 9. Support for many formats, both video and audio. 10. The hard drive can be replaced and will not void the warranty.
    • 1. Does not support *. mkv 2. The drive moves the disks in and out quite noisily. 3. Total 2 USB ports. Not enough for me personally. 4. There is no support for NTFS, both on flash drives and on the built-in hard drive.

    The quality is at the highest level, be sure to try it.

    This is the most capable gaming console for use in the house. It outperforms both a computer and an Xbox 360. It has excellent games as well as other multimedia features. Because of the games' high quality, they will appeal not only to young individuals but also to mature men over the age of 40. Got pros: - Remarkable games that are available only through this service, such as Heavy Rain, the Uncharted series, the God of War series, the Yakuza series, and Metal Gear Solid. On either the PC or…

    I'm very happy with the product, it's very satisfying.

    We get rid of the issue of costly games by installing specialized firmware version 3.55 Kmeaw, which allows us to simply upload images to a screw and start playing them. You can also play games from an external railway. Now, for those who are unable to flash the console, there is the option to purchase used disks at exorbitant prices. There are a lot of these disks available on the secondary market. In general, you should accept it and not have any second thoughts. PS3 rules. IMHO. Some pros…

    I like everything, the quality is good, the price is acceptable.

    Total 8-7. A word of advice: if you already own a computer that is capable of playing virtually any modern game, you can skip buying a console. Take the prefix instead of the upgrade if it is not possible to upgrade the computer. Xbox 360 is a good option to go with if you want to play offline games but still have access to free game downloads. Take the PlayStation 3 with you if you want to play games online. Has pros: 1. Exclusives. In this case, I do not believe that further explanation is…

    I am 25 years old, and I like to think of myself as a more experienced gamer. When I first began playing video games, I used consoles such as Dendy, Sega, and PSone. Getting a PS3 was never a question for me; it was just a matter of time. I purchased it at the "end of the line" in its life cycle. Given the prices and the starting line of games, I believe that taking the Prefix at the beginning is not a completely deliberate act (unless, of course, you are an avid fan). This is my opinion in…

    • 1) Unique and Stylish Items 2) Almost completely silence (especially if you run digital versions of games) 3) A gamepad that is not just lightweight but also pleasant and wireless. Free to Access Online (unlike xbox 360) 5) Skill in one's trade
    • They are, in general, petty criticisms (since the console was created FOR GAMES) 1) an obsolete web browser 2) The visual quality of multiplatform games is inferior to that of PC games (of course, the old woman is already 7 years old)

    I am very happy with this purchase, I will advise everyone!

    This is a good gaming console that comes with a lot of extra features overall. A price that is not quite appropriate is the only thing that can turn off a potential purchaser. However, if you are new to the world of gaming consoles, it is recommended that you begin with the PlayStation 3 (PS3). I encourage absolutely everyone to make a purchase! Some pros: 1. Of course - games. There are a lot of games that are only available on the PS3, like KillZone, Uncharted, and Gran Turismo. 2. Excellent…

    Mediocre product, probably won't use.

    I feel obligated to state right off the bat that I am a member of the PC. My evaluation is only intended for people who, like me, have entertained the idea of trying something new by purchasing a set-top box. The explanation for this is straightforward: all of the video games that have been made available for the personal computer in recent years have been ported from consoles. I was driven to insanity by it, and I went to the store. As a young child, I first experienced joy. THING! It is true…

    • Producing to a high standard. Operating system. A vast quantity of additional items. PS Move. Blue Ray drive. Very unique content. Free PSN. Demo versions of games being readily available for testing. Almost silent. Does not become hot in use. Installation in a vertical orientation is possible. Little multimedia center.
    • There is no audio output in the conventional fashion. You can only connect through DVI-D or HDMI; standard DVI connections are not possible. If the set-top box is turned off, charging the controller in any way is not going to be possible. Significant slowdowns in the speed of the WiFi connection (7 Mbps to 1 Mbps).

    A good quality product, I rate this purchase perfectly.

    Games can be bought for 500-1200. using HOME MEDIA SERVER via WI-FI plays everything that is on the PC, video from the Internet in real time (YUTUB, HD FILMS, IP TV)! SUPER! Movie games are fantastic! and even if the graphics are behind the PC, all the possibilities of this set-top box more than cover this minus! And for 2022 a year, when buying PSN +, several games are free (for 9000r) plus discounts.

    • Free network! great games and graphics! the quality of performance is on top. wireless controller. powerful media center!MOVE!
    • No HDMI cable included.

    Im amazed! It was definitely worth the money!

    I wanted to buy a PlayStation 3 for a long time, but the cost of the games stopped me in every possible way from buying it. And lo and behold, this problem was already solved, and in March 2022 I bought it at the end. I remembered the time when I bought the PlayStation One and then the PlayStation 2, it was something, I played all day without leaving home. I don’t want to say anything bad about the PS3, the graphics are very good and the exclusive games are very good, I know I’m already old )))

    • All of them have already been listed before me, I will not repeat.
    • In my opinion, there are NO shortcomings, (or rather, not yet) there are, of course, small discontents about the fact that there is no second joystick and HDMI cable, but these are all trifles.

    I like it, thanks for the quality product.

    I use it as a BD player, so see other reviews for comments on games. As the owner of several devices from Sony, I was unpleasantly surprised that, while being able to play movies in 3D, it refuses to understand 3D images taken by the Sony NEX camera. It looks like the departments don't interact well with each other. Viewing 3D images only from the connected camera is not convenient.

    Great product, best quality.

    We solve the problem of expensive games by installing custom firmware 3.55 Kmeaw, upload images to the screw and play, you can also play from an external railway. Well, for those who cannot flash the console, you can buy used disks (there are a lot of them on the secondary market) at ridiculous prices. In general, take it and do not hesitate. PS3 rules. IMHO. Some pros: After the purchase, I completely forgot about the PC! Now I lie on the couch with Joy and play on the big TV screen, which is…

    Total 8-7. Tip: if you have a computer that normally pulls all modern games, then forget about consoles. If it is impossible to upgrade the computer, then take the prefix. If you want to download games for free, but do not play online, your choice is the xbox 360. If you want to play online, take the playstation 3. Has pros: 1. Exclusives. Here, I think, it is not necessary to explain. Heavy rain (yes, yes, a soap movie, though not for 2300 anymore), Uncharted (someone prefers part 2, but for…

    Average purchase, there is something to complain about.

    For 600r I will buy a licensed game for a computer, equipped with translation, cool graphics, with clear textures, support for any resolution, and I will be able to play even from the keyboard, even from the steering wheel. Why am I paying 2,500r? for muddy graphics and lack of even elementary subtitles? (Skyrim, as an example). So it turns out that a prefix is ​​bought for literally a few exclusives, the rest of the time gathering dust behind the closet. Saves her only the ability to play…

    • So: 1) Can play Blu-ray discs. Accordingly, you can not only play, but also watch movies. 2) The presence of games and genres that either do not exist or are poorly represented on the PC. (for example, fighting games and slashers) 3) A large number of more or less high-quality exclusives of different genres. 4) Free PSN service. 5) Convenient gamepad. If you are going to play fighting games, only PS3 will do. (and I just took it for this)
    • 1) The price of the games. 2,500r for a disk is not serious. Well, you can, of course, take used ones or wait for price drops, promotions or sales. But this does not help the situation. 2) Objectively worse graphics quality than on an average PC. 3) The lack of real support for Full HD in games, 720p is the best, but even this resolution is not supported by all games. 4) Inconvenient control in shooters. 5) Very few games are translated into 2022. Actually, the first and last points do not allow us to call the console even a competitor for the PC in 2022. At best, an addition.

    Revainrating 5 out of 5

    The right product for me, there were no problems.

    In my opinion, this system is a great device for entertainment. But this is in the event that you are not afraid of the volume of games that comes out in English in comparison with the number of localizations (where it is translated into 2022). Prices can be disappointing (like me) over time, especially given the greed of 2022 entrepreneurs who raise the prices of some hits to incredible heights. And this is in comparison with the cost of the same games for PC. My console is now with friends,

    • The ability to watch movies (from a flash drive, from disks, including from a blue-ray); Really beautiful games (with a large diagonal TV is an excellent tool for "immersing" in virtual reality); The ability to play on the 1st console for several people at the same time; No need to dig into the settings to adjust the quality of video, audio, ease of control - turn it on and play; You can connect additional accessories in the form of the same PS Move, expanding the capabilities of the set-top box; Optimal size for easy transportation (fits into most standard backpacks along with joysticks and a couple of boxes of discs)
    • The prefix, even with the latest firmware, does not understand the mkv video format; Expensive accessories; Expensive games (unfortunately, the price only changes slightly if you buy them through the PS Store); A huge part of interesting games in English; Lack of a 3.5 jack for connecting headphones (this is if you have a TV without the same jack); Strange selectivity of the system when connected via hdmi to TV and monitors (parents have Samsung - so it is simply ignored until you connect via the component connector)

    Very pleased with this purchase, will recommend it to everyone!

    What is there to comment on, who is looking for flaws will find. For me, they are not. Everything goes everything works. Pros below: Convenient and intuitive interface Excellent multimedia system including work with the server. Support for a large number of formats. Build quality Price Appearance The ability to flash and download applications from the Internet (I personally do not use it, but for many it will be "+") Lots of accessories to fit any need. Has some cons The disadvantages…

    Matches the description completely, very satisfied.

    This is the best home game console. It's better than PC and xbox 360. It's great games and other multimedia features. The games are so good that they will appeal to both serious guys over 40 and young people. Got pros: - Awesome exclusive games like Heavy Rain, Uncharted series, God of War series, Yakuza series, MGS. There is no such game and never will be on PC or xbox 360. This is the best of the best and is only on PS. In my opinion, these games have the greatest artistic value and surpass…

    Quality is top notch, happy with everything.

    Some pros: 1. User friendly interface 2. Wireless joystick with accelerometer 3. Works fast 4. Lots and lots of cool games! And exclusives. 5. Design Some cons: 1. Size - much larger than PS2! 2. Games are very expensive - both in real stores and in the PlayStation Store. 3. Periodically freezes tightly.

    Who wants all in one, take ps anyway, you won’t regret if it’s a freaky graph, then finally a computer, and if something is in the middle, then boxing. It also does not look bad, you can flash it and all that. I took ps for a blue ray because I bought a new 47-inch TV and needed a player, and I wanted to play, so I upset my parents. So think: boxing game, multifunctional ps

    • Blue ray took it for this, many formats, the very power of the set-top box, which by the way is not used at all. FREE GAME ON THE NETWORK this is just happy, thanks to Sony here you are pleased
    • Okay, I’ll repeat for the 1000th time EXPENSIVE GAMES, the graphics here are slightly inferior to boxing, but this is compensated by all the bells and whistles that they stuffed there, I was terribly upset when I found out that the new slim model can be flashed together with the downgrade and this must be soldered. So, like everything

    Reliable purchase, guaranteed to be a good one.

    Sony is working on the console and every month it pays for itself more and more. Somewhere once a year, more and more new modifications come out. So it's better to watch and buy the last one, so that it is thinner, colder, quieter and faster. Different pros: PlayStation 3! New slim body Less weight Less power consumption Improved process iron inside Different cons: The possibility of only a horizontal arrangement (although this is all I need) Linux cannot be installed on Slim (enthusiasts…
