I am a big Sony user (Walman's, Discman's, MD's, TV, Home Audio, DVD, Blu-ray, etc...). I am a owner of a original PS1 (still working perfecly), a PS2 (Both one with bay for HD, with HD in it & a PS2 Slim along with the PS1 & PS2 Devlopment System's), along with an original PS3 w/ 80GB HD. At first in theory I really liked my PS. But, in the past (almost 2 years of ownership, bought Dec. 2007) I have had 3 defective PS3's. First lasted until Feb. 2008 )HD failure). Second until Oct. 2008 (Blu-ray drive faliure). Third until Sept. 2009 (Yellow light of "Death", motherboard failure). This has been a very frustating situation, but now Sony came thru for me. They exchanged my origin PS3 for a new PS3 250GB system. The new one works so well. Run's so much cooler (Original one's were like little spaceheater's)! I am very happy with this PS3. All PS3 games work perfectly on it (I have 42 PS3 games). I still have my PS1 & PS2's to play older games. So the badward compalitabiliy thing not a problem (All older games did not all work with original PS3). This new PS3 is the best so far. And have not heard of any major failure problems with it. One thing playing Blu-ray movies is fine with a PS3, but it is truly the best (If you are a real movie junkie) to buy a "Region Free", Sony Blu-ray player. Many more features and then you can play any Blu-ray or DVD from any country!

as with all ps3's with the exception of the ones that are backwards compatable out the box and mind you they are almost impossible to find in decent shape,you get great grafix and all that neat stuff but as with all true gamers the major issue is all the great ps2 games collecting dust on our shelves awaiting the day when we can finally have one console to play all our games we spend our hard earned cash on along with the massive ammounts of cash on these new systems with these super huge hard drives.It looks like with every memory expansion and price hike there could have been a little incentive like the backwards compatability included also. I have owned and worn out several ps3's over the years including 2 backwards compatable ones and now have invested in the new 250 gig hopefully this one will hold out unless one comes out that it totally backwards compatable again.

        I own both PS3 and 360 and use both, this product is under rated it should be at the top of your shopping list I have owned this from the launch and never a problem. If you are into games, movies or entertainment system you need this system. When you connect a Sony to a Sony device they complement each other like a symphony, you cannot be disappointed with this product ;-) your friend Matthew

        Comments about Sony PlayStation 3 Slim 160GB Video Game System:

        The Sony Play Station 3 360 GB is an exceptionally good system, far beyond my expectations the graphics are mind blowing and the sound lets you feel like your in the action. The Uncharted 3 game that comes with the Play Station 3 shows off the performance and power of this system. The dual shock 3 controller lets you feel the action for a great experience It's well worth the money!

          Comments about Sony PlayStation 3 Slim 160GB Video Game System:

          I have had this system for 7 months and hate it, the battery life is poor. I can't seem to have fun on any of the games, no matter how many I buy I usually return all of them. The graphics are all poor, except for a couple games. The system is old and outdated. And who wants to spend 10 more minutes figuring out their wpa code for their wifi to work. Also you can't just buy it and play online. You have to buy a Wifi Max, and download this Team Wifi thing. The system is overall a bad creation. Did I mention that all the good games on the Playstation 3, or 2 didn't get ported. I would go over to nintendo and buy a 3ds, or ds.

            I like psp, it's perfect with lots of games. But after my psp1000's wifi break, I decided to buy a new 3000. I've heard that 3k is light. When I got it, I feel, ohhhhh! Too light!!!! I even doubt: does the CPU or other stuff is still made of plastic? I can only treat 3k like my baby since I took my 1k like a self-defense weapon.
