Description

As DVD playback made the PlayStation 2 more than just a game machine, hefty multi-media features make the Sony PlayStation 3 an even more versatile home entertainment machine. Features such as video chat, Internet access, digital photo viewing, and digital audio and video will likely make it the central component of your media set-up. Still, it is first and foremost a game console--and a powerful one at that.

Under the Hood
The PS3 features IBM's "Cell" processor and a co-developed Nvidia graphics processor that makes the system able to perform two trillion calculations per second. That's approximately 320 times more calculations per second than the PS2. Along with the traditional AV and composite connections, it also boasts an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port, which delivers uncompressed, unconverted digital picture and sound to compatible high-definition TV and projectors. The system is capable of 128-bit pixel precision and 1080p resolution for a full HD experience.

PlayStation 3 is a powerful gaming and home entertainment machine.
Blu-Ray is the New Way
Sony's PlayStation 3 games are encoded onto the Blu-Ray disc media format, which can hold six times as much data as traditional DVDs. This increase in capacity, combined with the awesome power of its processor and graphics card, promises mind-blowing games once developers have learned how to fully harness the new console's power. The PS3 will also support CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD+R formats.

In addition, PlayStation 3 system software update version 2.20 and up includes BD Live support. With this you can now play discs that support Blu-ray Disc Profile 2.0 (BD-LIVE) and you can also connect to the Internet while playing discs that support this format so that you can obtain additional features. Features that are available vary depending on the software in use.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is included with this Sony PlayStation 3 bundle pack. The game begins with a 400-year-old clue found in the coffin of famed explorer, Sir Francis Drake. The clue sends modern-day fortune hunter, Nathan Drake, on a quest to find the fabled treasure of El Dorado, leading to the discovery of a long forgotten island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The expedition turns deadly when Drake's party becomes stranded on an island and hunted by modern day pirates. Outnumbered and outgunned, Nathan must fight to survive and unravel the terrible secrets of the mysterious island.

Adventure, Mystery, and Exploration Abound
Using maps and ancient artifacts you'll uncover clues and unravel mysteries that will reveal a forgotten island a lost treasure. This uncharted world is alive with intrigue and mystery, and you'll revel in the amazing graphics as you explore exotic locations and traverse through living jungles and 400-year-old ruins. Drake's not all on his own -- his companions and allies play an important role in the adventure through cooperative gameplay mechanics, gun play, and exploration.

Action-Packed gameplay
Your abilities will be tested, challenge after challenge, as you struggle to stay alive by any means necessary. Thrilling high-speed chases over land and water and terrifying gunfire will keep you on the edge of your seat. And if that's not enough, you'll need to employ an array of hand-to-hand combat moves to keep your enemies off balance with haymaker punches and running drop-kicks.

Charming, exciting, and adventure-packed, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is an excellent addition to this Sony PlayStation 3 game console bundle.

Disappointed

I purchased a Playstation 3 for my son for Christmas. The system half way worked. We thought it was the games not the system. Now the system doesn't work at all after only 5 months. I do not recommend anyone to by any electronics from this company.
 

Great console...until Sony stole back a feature it sold me

I love and still use my PS3. I have tried to sell many friends and family on the great merits of the PlayStation 3. I had my dad get one instead of a regular BluRay player.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was a fun and adventurous game. I was able to play most of it without offending my wife who doesn't like shooter. Most of the game has an exploring Indiana Jones feel to it.

Sony did steal a feature it advertised (Linux install capability) that it removed via a firmware update. The firmware update is necessary to continue to login to the PlayStation Network.
 

yellow red light of death

I purchased my 160GB system in May of 2009 .... in February of 2010 my system froze showing the yellow red light of death .... my system was refurbished or replaced by PlayStation .... but currently the 160GB system that was replaced or refurbished has encountered the same yellow red light of death .... now I'm being asked to pay $119.00 to have system replaced or refurbished ... I think this is so wrong and I'm now considering purchasing a newer system. I'm not certain if this yellow red light of death will occur again after paying to fix problem.
 

This system just keeps impressing me

Pros:
- awesome hardware. With every new surge of game releases I'm impressed with the continued push for Audio/Video/Rendering quality. This tells me there's some room for gaming software to grow before this hardware is maxed out.
- serves as a great blueray player too.
- Netflix instant it a standalone app now, the UI is nice, and streaming is usually very high quality.

cons:
- it looks like online gaming is going the way of the xbox with some downloadable content moving from the free PlaystationNetwork to the paid PlaystationPlus.
- video chat and chat notification while in-game is still inconvenient and behind xbox

Bonus: My purchase came with Uncharted, which is an awesome game. You must play it.
 

Great all around entertainment device

The new PS3 slim is a much better value than my old PS3 fat 160gig, but I still feel like I've gotten my money's worth out of this bundle. I use it on a daily basis to stream netflix, I've ripped all my music onto it, and at the time it was one of the cheaper, and better quality, blu-ray players on the market. I would go with a lower memory unit though because it's cheaper just to upgrade the hard drive (it takes just about any lap top hard drive). It's also a reliable unit too. I bought this april of 2009 and haven't had any real issues with it since (there was an issue with the HDMI output but starting it in safe mode and restoring the settings fixed it).

Between my girlfriend and I we own an N64, gamecube, wii, xbox arcade w/ 60 gig hard drive and the PS3 and they're all great. The big reason we use the PS3 more the the others combined is the multimedia versatility it has. This can be accomplished through other means though. If you really want to set up a heavy duty home entertainment set up I would just permanently righ a home computer to the tv and that will give you a more open platform to work.
 

PlayStation 3 160 GB Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Pack

This PS3 package is the best that Sony put together. It has great value and a ton of storage that will last forever. Sadly it was the last PS3 system in this model and becoming very hard to find. I would recommend this to anyone who can find one because you wont be disappointed. Plus, you get Uncharted Drakes Fortune for free, who wouldn't want that.
 

IT'S GGGGGGRRRRRRRRREEEEAAAAAAATTTTTTTT

Couldn't be happier. Even though i screwed-up sellers review, i am very happy with I got.

WARNING: MAY REMOVE FEATURES AT ANY TIME AND WITH NO COMPENSATION

Today, the 3.21 firmware update removes a much-publicized feature, for which I bought a fat PS3: the OtherOS. At this point, I either have a Linux box or a game console. I can no longer have both.

Please know that Sony can and WILL remove features without compensation in their compulsory (if you want to continue playing Bluray movies, DRMed content, and using PSN. Single-player games should still run).
