I need to know all pros/feature of the ps3?


Ok so heres my problem, i am broke. And quite frankly a bit cheep. And i need to know all the great features of this console and all general great thijgs of this console so i can convince my father to buy it as a fantastic blue ray player. The problem is that you can find bpue ray players just as good for half the price, so i need a bit of leverage if you know whati mean.

Aoso you should know that i am only 14 and not 22 and still living with my mom. Also that my dad is a techie and love cool electronic things ( so am i), and not an anti-tech kinda person.

    By the way, it does cure cancer. If you download Life on PS3 [Which is FREE], then all you do is leave your PS3 on and leave it. What it does it contribute energy to Universities like Stanford for them to help research about curing diseases. Here’s the site for a more comprehensive idea of what it is:

  2. is he interested in any sports? tell him if he buys a ps3, you can buy sport games, and play with each other. tell him that you want to spend some time with him, and this will be a great way of doing so.

    he will fork up the extra $100 after that.

  3. okay, first of all you should know that there MAY be a price drop during April, this year. Sony has yet to deny it, or confirm it so at this point we can only hope. But here’s something I found that’s a comparison to the Xbox 360, you can just take the info out, you don’t needa look at all of the 360 crap.

    The expected lifetimes of current home video game consoles:

    Xbox 360–2005-2010, you’ll get 1 and a half years out of it

    Wii-2006-2010, you’ll get 1 and a half years out of it

    Playstation 3-2015 (Sony said they made it to last 10 years, so 2006+10 years=2016, round it down just to be safe), you’ll get 7 years out of it.

    The PS3 is the obvious choice here. In short, it has better reliability, multimedia capabilities, a large list of exclusives and more coming out in 2009 and in the future, it will have over-the-top graphical capabilities (google “Heavy Rain”). And to those who say the Xbox 360 is cheaper, well then just look at the following list:

    With the PS3, you get:

    -A Blu-Ray player, which if you wanted one of equal value would blow at least a $700 hole in your wallet, plus a mean DVD-upconverter

    -Free online service, the Playstation Network, which is only a few steps behind Xbox Live these days

    -An ever-growing list of exclusives, like Resistance 2, LittleBig Planet, Motorstorm: Pacific Rift, Metal Gear Solid 4 and in the future: inFamous, Killzone 2, God of War 3, Uncharted 2, L.A. Noire, Heavy Rain and Massive Action Game (M.A.G.—in which over 256 players will be able to play on the same map at the same time)

    -More flexible in terms of hardware, e.g. swappable HDD, USB mini cable, etc.

    -Built in, superior Wi-Fi

    -Web browser

    -A super sleek system complete with chrome trim and a slot loading disc drive

    -HDMI 1.3, Xbox 360 only has HDMI 1.2 (major difference despite only a 0.1 difference)

    With the Xbox 360, you get:

    -DVD Player/upconverter

    -Xbox live, which is $50/year, and not even worth it

    -Halo 3 and Gears of War 2 (that’s a lot of exclusives compared to the PS3, if you ask me: P)

    -Umm…can’t really say anything about non-proprietaryness, because Microsoft inflates the prices for their accessories.

    -A 1 in 3 failure rate (it’s not “if”, it’s “when”)s

    -Many people are on their 5th or 6th 360’s already because of RROD, and my friend is on his 11th!

    So here’s a quick run-down of what you must buy with the PS3 and 360:


    Console $400

    Game $60

    Controller $55

    Charger $2-10–any USB mini cable will do

    Total: $517 ($2 USB mini cable)

    Really, if you bought all the things the PS3 offers SEPERATELY, you would be able to buy roughly 3 PS3’s with that money (gaming console+computer+SUPERB Blu Ray player)

    Xbox 360:

    Console $300

    Game $60

    Controller $60

    Play and Charge kit x2 $60 (for 2 controllers)

    Xbox Live $60

    Wi-Fi $100

    Total: $640

    That’s not cheaper, so get a grip on it! Sony said that they made the PS3 to last a decade. The multi-platform games are using about 25% of the PS3’s graphical potential. So there’s lots of wiggle room in the future for much more brighter, detailed and massive environments.

    On the other hand, most multiplatform games are using about 98% of the 360’s potential. And they look about the same. At this rate in 1 year, the PS3 will have outshone the 360 graphic wise. It’s just that the 8-core Cell Broadband Processor is very complex, and takes developers time to get used to. And they are getting the hang of things. The PS3 has a very good reliability rate: only 0.2% failure rate (note the decimal), while Xbox 360’s have a 30% failure rate. So, for every 1000 of both consoles produced, 2 PS3’s are defective, whilst about 330 Xbox 360’s are defective. The numbers speak for themselves. Many game developers have OPENLY stated that in the near future, and right now, they will use the PS3 as a lead-developing platform, and then they will port the games to the 360.

    Also, many Xbox fanboys will say “Sure, LIVE is 50 bucks a year, but you get what you pay for.” Isn’t this like a Sony fanboy saying “Sure, PS3 is a 100 bucks more, but that is *pretty much* all you pay for, other than games?”

    So in conclusion, the PS3 is better—you get the most bang for your buck, and it’s an incredibly advanced all-in-one home media center hub. You can even install Linux or Windows XP and use it as a computer-legally! While with the Xbox 360, Microsoft will ban your 360 from certain things, if you install the OS at all (just try to bypass the security).

    Hope this helps!

  4. yes, it has the blu ray drive which is high definition. it has a HDMI port which transmit HIGH DEFINITION picture which is VERY clear. the games look virtual which means that it looks like the real thing. and its really.really quiet. also, its polish finish really looks nice so the ps3 not only can become a gaming console, yet as a house decorator. it has a 80 or 120 GB hard drive in which you can store anything on it. you can also upgrade it to 300GB. now, thats more than enough. not only that. the games are also cool like little big planet and upcoming god of war 3 (not shooting games). the controller is smaller than the xbox controller so its suitable for everyone, especially the ones with small hands like your younger siblings. it also have Wi-Fi (which wireless internet connection) and a high speed ethernet port. it also has very little and i do mean VERY little chance of faulty hardware failure (a lot lesser than the xbox) so you dont have to send it in for fixing every single time. and the word `playstation 3′ is cool enough to attract your anyone to admire it for hours.

    those are the pros

    pls vote me =)

  5. The reason the PS3 remains the best Blu-Ray player, is that it is effectively future-proof. As the Blu-Ray standard evolves and changes, other players will become obsolete. This is because all their decoding and playback technology is done in hardware, right on the circuit board of the player itself. But the PS3 comes with a very powerful Cell processor, which means it can achieve newer standards in software alone, via a system update from Sony. The PS3 is Sony’s flagship Blu-Ray player, and it’s well equipped to stay in front of the tech curve for many years.

    Plus, have you seen Killzone 2?
