    Hi fellow forumers,

    As the title suggests, I would be getting a PS3 by the end of the month. It's bluray capability is a bonus for me as I love watching films in High-def quality. Also with the release of the new Street Fighter IV game, I would be looking forward to purchase this console. I have done some research and realised that only the 80GB PS3 allows backward capability and the package only includes one controller.

    The point of this thread is to ask those who have the playstation 3 console at home now, are you guys satisfied overall with the PS3?

    PS I'm getting the white 80GB PS3

    Yes, it's the best gaming console available. With exception to the PC of course.

    I love the PS3. But I despise Sony for how they've marketed and changed the PS3.

    Explain.
    Or are you referring to lack of backwards compatibility.
    I'm considering a PS3 , 360's have proved to be un-reliable.

    Yeah please explain here Tes. I have an Xbox 360 right now. It's ok... The RRod has happened a few times to me. But I like the Live much better. And, it is considerably cheaper... What does the PS3 offer specifically that the Xbox 360 doesn't, other than blu-ray? And I love Halo/GoW/Fable series...

    One thing's for sure is it can produce high quality images on a full-hdtv, from what I heard. One problem is that it couldn't be modded

    You know how Consoles usually get BETTER with time? Well, when the First PS3 came out, it was AWESOME. 4 USB Ports, Memory Card Reader, PS2/PS1 backwards compatibility. Then as time passed by, they took out 2 USB ports, Memory reader, AND Backwards Compatibility. And they didn't even lower the price that much. And then NOW they decide to lower the price by 100 dollars. Along with that, rumor has a new PS3 with the same CPU but smaller NM coming out, making it cheaper.

    Just business I know.

    Easier to increase storage. Easy to install and dual boot Linux. Not proprietary like MS's storage thingy. Built in Wifi. PS3 exclusives (Since you mention 360 exclusives)

    The good thing about XBOX storage though is that it's easily changeable in different XBOX's.
    For example , I don't have to bring my whole XBOX is my friend's.
    Which is nice.
    But I'm pissed that I spent like 400 on a device that refuses to read discs.
