Sony PS3 review

 

The Sony PlayStation 3 is still selling well, but should you wait for the PS4?

120GB storage ; It's smaller ; It's ligher ; Up to 50% less power consumption ; Brilliant media device ; Blu-ray player built-in ; Wi-fi included

It's a bit ugly ; The price is still high ; No PS2 gaming ; PSN outclassed by Xbox Live

Stop! We've reviewed the latest version of the PS3 here: PS3 review

Sony PlayStation 3 (2012) review

 

Sony's console slips on a new outfit for its third outing. Has it got the look or is it gaming mutton dressed as plastic lamb?

Plays games and Blu-rays ; Tidier design ; Ton of games out there

No HDMI cable in the box ; New disc tray feels cheap and nasty

It’s a shame there are a couple of little flaws, but the PS3 remains a supreme all-purpose console and it’s now slimmer and lighter than ever

The PlayStation 3 has finally arrived in the UK, but was it worth the wait?

One thing that Sony can’t be criticised for is the amount of functionality that the PlayStation 3 offers. It really is so much more than just a games console, which is fine, assuming that you want to do so much more than play games. The PS3 really does...

The new stripped down PS3 costs the same as the Xbox 360 Elite – and still packs that fantastic Blu-ray player

The cut-down PS3 costs the same as the Xbox Elite, has lost of its key features and still has that cracking Blu-ray player

PlayStation 3 review

 

Sony has always pushed the PS3 (PlayStation 3) as an all-round entertainment console, with a remit that goes well beyond the realm of gaming. And its striking design certainly makes it look at home in the living room - even if it is larger than the...

The PS3 truly is technologically superior to both the Xbox 360 and the Wii, providing stunning graphics that will impress the most cynical of gamers. It's also a pleasure to use, with an intuitive, friendly interface. But this won't be a must-have...

It's here. At last. How can the PS3 possibly live up to our ridiculously high expectations? By being the best games console and media hub ever...

Stunning 1080p games. Best Blu-ray player yet. Free online gaming.

No hi-def upscaling for old DVDs and games. Controllers don’t have force feedback.

Sony PS3 80GB

 

Still a capable machine, but some cheaper dedicated players offer superior performance

More than a Blu-ray player; load times; DVD upscaling and Blu-ray picture

Sounds bright; picture suffers from noise
