 The PS3 system comes with a built-in Blu-ray player to give you pristine picture quality and the best high-definition viewing experience available. And the PS3 system is already equipped with everything you need to play stereoscopic 3D games. Whether it's gaming, Blu-ray movies, music or online services, experience it all with the powerful PlayStation 3 system.

The included Dualshock 3 wireless controller provides the most intuitive gameplay experience, with pressure sensors in each action button and the inclusion of the highly sensitive Sixaxis motion-sensing technology. Each hit, crash, and explosion is more realistic when the user feels the rumble right in the palm of their hand. It can even detect natural movements for real-time and high precision interactive play, acting as a natural extension of the user's body. Dualshock 3 utilizes Bluetooth technology for wireless game play and the controller's USB cable to seamlessly and automatically charge the controller through the PS3 at any time.

The GPU is clocked at 500 MHz and makes use of 256 MB GDDR3 RAM clocked at 650 MHz with an effective transmission rate of 1.3 GHz.

Can Not Go Wrong With a PS3

My old 80GB PS3 finally kicked the bucket after 3.5 years. So I picked up the slim and so far, it has been great. You cannot go wrong with PlayStation. Free internet gaming on the PSN, Blu-Ray player built in, great catalog of games, and so much more. At $250, you are getting a great deal. Highly recommend!

13 Year Old Son Love's It!

My son got this for his 13th Birthday about 5 days ago and he love's it! You can only play Playstation 1 & 3 games on this. It will NOT play Playstation 2 games unless you have it modded which then the fan has to be removed to do but we still have the Playstation 2 in his sister's room so it's not a problem for us. It's a good machine and he plays it every chance he gets when not in school or sleeping so it gets a LOT of use. His favorite game is the Black Ops game and he plays it online with the headset and really enjoys it. All in all I think it was his best birthday ever. He also got an XBox 360 from his dad so he is a major gamer.

I originally owned an Xbox 360, and I thought that system was so much better than the PS3, but I never even tried the PS3 until now, and the Playstation 3 is by far way better than the xbox 360. The graphics are way better than the xbox 360 especially when you have a HDMI cable connected. The gameplay is fantastic, the sound is out of this world good. I am so glad I finally bought a Playstation 3.

  • A. No, you can not play PS2 games on this system. The only models of PS3 that play PS2 games is 20, 60, and 80 GB models. These three models were discontinued some time ago. 40 GB and Slim PS3s will not play PS2 games via disc and any PS2 games they will play need to be purchased via the Playstation Store. Otherwise these models will only play PSOne and PS3 games rather they're disc based or from the Playstation Store.

  • A. My understanding is: NO. The first versions out DID, I am told. But Sony quickly discovered, they weren't selling many new PS3 games... And changed the BIOS. See my other answers for a more full explanation.
