The PlayStation 3 is one of the new 7th generation game consoles which mainly competes with the Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. The PlayStation 3, PS3 for short, was released on November 11, 2006 in Japan, and November 17, 2006 in the United States. It comes in two versions, the 20 gigabyte, and the 60 gigabyte. Both have hard drives, but the 20 gigabyte version does not have a chrome trim, built in Wi-Fi, or flash card readers, which the 60 gigabyte has. It has backwards compatibility with PlayStation and PlayStation 2. The 20 gigabyte version is $500 as of the release date, and the 60 gigabyte is $600. Both are high definition. There will be three available colors for the PlayStation 3: black, silver, and white, but as of the release date, the only available color is black. The white and silver are TBA. The PlayStation 3 comes with a wireless bluetooth controller; both versions have that. The PlayStation 3 is a great system, even though it is way expensive. The best value for the game system is the Nintendo Wii, in my opinion

Either a George Foreman grill rip-off or a fridge; could be both.
If I'm able to afford the PS3, I'd sell it's innards to someone who needs them, and slap in a fridge motor and store my food in there when I'm in college. After, I'd replace the "Playstation 3" label with the word "Fridge" and that will still retain the SpiderMan font.

Man, I'll be all set after that.

A console everyone secretly wants but are too big a bunch of whiny fanboys to admit it.

Despite being much more reliable than the 360, much more powerful than the Wii and a better deal, it recieved a stupid amount of hate from idiots. However, it's now turning around after outselling the 360 worldwide in 2007 and being set to utterly decimate MS's console in 2008.

It's equipped with a Blu ray drive (the only HD format left seeing as HD-DVD is all but dead), a Cell processor, built in wi-fi, full bluetooth support and an upgradeable HDD.

It will take advantage of Sony's wide 1st and 2nd party game support as well as a massive amount of 3rd party titles, unlike Nintendo and Microsoft who rely on 1st and 3rd party games respectively.
The PlayStation 3 doesn't break down if you look at it wrong and doesn't rely on a crappy gimmick in an attempt to disguise the ridiculously old hardware.

It is, in short, the only decent console this generation.

The best current generation console available. People complain about it because they couldn't wait for it to come out and wasted their money on an Xbox 360 or a Wii. They bitch about blu-ray, but it actually means that games with better playability and graphics will become available. Current software is pretty poor as its only just been released, but within a years time there will be some kick-ass games out.
Person 1 "The playstation 3 sucks ass, its far too expensive cos they put blu-ray on it."
Person 2 "Wait 'til Gran Turismo HD comes out, then you'll shut your mouth. If it didn't have blu-ray you'd have to have 50 different DVDs for each decent game. You only hate cos you can't afford it- you should have worked harder at school!"

A console you'd need a job for. Considering the fact that the definitions below are made by idiotic 14 year olds who have to ask their parents to buy a console, they believe bashing it would make themselves feel better.
Oh hey, is dat sum Playstation 3 with a 400 dollar price tag? Lol wut?
Oh hey, is dat sum online support that doesnt need a monthly fee?
Oh hey, is dat some better graphics without lying about actual HD resolution? (lol halo 3)

Sony's newest gaming system. Prone to critisism and flat out flaming from biased retards who don't know shit.

The PS3 works great, it costs 500$, Really the only good games it does not have is Halo3....Lets compare...

PS3 v.s Wii: PS3 has a social network,PS3 actually has 3rd party games. With the Wii you get to burn about 2 calories a day...

PS3 v.s Xbox360:Playstaion Network is FREE and it works just fine(so long as you have a WORKING Internet connection)
PS3's social network is not full of cussing 12 year olds. The Xbox360 gets most of the good games (Although about EVERY game released for it can be played on the Personal Computer)
"The only game you can play on the Play Station 3 is like Ridge Racer 'n stuff" Said the idiot

The guy replied with "That's not true, you can also play Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Armored Core 4, CoD4, the Orange Box and much, much more."
