This PS3 is a great value all around. 500 gig Hard Drive, a Free $50 subscription the PSN Plus and (Only at Wal Mart!) a supposadly $69 value of Vudu movies. I say supposadly because they only gave me 25 titles to choose from (and only let me choose 5 of them) and most you can find in the $5 or $7.88 (Blu Rays) dump bins at any given Wal Mart, so if Vudu regularly sells these "HD" movies at $14 to $25 each, that is not the best value. I chose from the list Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, The Bounty Hunter, The House Bunny, Big Daddy and A Knights Tale. Granted I do like those movies (except Bounty Hunter I haven't seen it so I hope it's good, but if it's not it was free). The machine itself is very user friendly when it comes to setting up your PSN Plus account and the PS3 itself. The $50 PSN Plus account comes with several games you can choose to download or not, for free, for both the PS3 and PS Vita. If you don't have a Vita well it's no big deal really since you are not forced to download those titles. Besides the three games pictured (Ratchet And Clank All 4 One, Infamous 2 and Little Big Planet 2) there are other PS3 games given free to download including Street Fighter Arcade Edition, King Of Fighters XIII, Guardians Of Middle Earth, and Darksiders 1. Some other PSN type games are included too but I don't really care for those. It is a Blu Ray player as well so if you don't have Blu Ray movies and you buy this system do yourself a favor and start Buying BD's now. Alot of them come with DVD's as well so if you don't have this PS3 or a Blu Ray player already, at least you can still watch the movie until you buy it. Some people seem to have the same complaint and that is that it is a top loader PS3 rather than and ejecting disc tray. That's not a bad thing in my opinion. At least it isn't like the old PS1's where the lid pops UP, so you had limited space in your entertainment center or at least I did. The top loader is a slider so you hit the button and it slides to the left, now here's my complaint but it's not a big deal, you can't hit the button again to close the lid you have to slide it closed manually. Again no big deal, I'm just lazy is all, lol! All in all a great value (the $50 PSN Plus also nets you discounts on downloads, beta testing, demos and new free games every month, well at least they say so, I only had it for a day so I don't know when the new games were introduced for the new month). Worth the $300.
