Product description
Product Description
Product DescriptionFor gaming fans, the Sony PlayStation 3 may well be one of the best consoles ever released. Featuring unforgettable titles in a wide variety of genres, this versatile system has something for every member of the family. Kids are sure to love playing as their favorite animated characters in 'Disney Infinity' and 'LEGO Marvel Superheroes'. Extremely popular action games like 'Far Cry 3', 'Call of Duty: Black Ops', and 'Deus Ex: Human Revolution' are just a few titles available for fans of the genre. Because the PlayStation 3 60 GB model in piano black is also backward-compatible with most games released for the PS2, you can still enjoy classic favorites at the same time.

Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewExcellent


    Swanky design with quiet operation; all games in high-definition; PSP-like user-friendly interface; plays high-def Blu-ray movies in addition to upscaling standard DVDs; built-in Wi-Fi and flash media reader; 60GB hard drive; online play is free; HDMI output with 1080p support; no external power supply; free online gaming service; plays PS2 and PS1 games; backwards compatibility is hardware based.


    Compelling exclusive games are still few and far between; PlayStation Home and rumble controller not available until 2008; a USB port on the back would've been nice; no infrared port means non-Bluetooth universal remotes aren't compatible; glossy black finish is a fingerprint magnet; online gaming, media, and commerce options not nearly as developed as Xbox Live.


    The high-end Sony PlayStation 3's larger hard drive and ability to play PS2 games makes it a worthwhile alternative to the cheaper model--so long as you're willing to wait several months for the more promising exclusive titles to hit store shelves. If backward compatibility is your top priority, this hard-to-find model may be worth the search.
