Sony's Weird Kid

Admitedly, I missed this generation and just recently bought a PS3 after owning a PS4.
Too many great games exist on this console, which is a plus!!!
That being said, I don't understand how this was supposed to exist as a centerpiece of a home entertainment system. Simply put, the OS is slow.
This can make for a troubling experience. The graphics are alright. Sometimes even surprising. However, I will say that a lot of these poor experiences are dimished greatly with a hard drive upgrade. I put in an SSD and my world changed. If you can't afford one, at least go with a faster hard drive with a bigger capacity (maybe a hybrid). It's more surprising than the PS1, not as big of a leap as the PS2 (a classic) and less polished than the PS4 but has way more games. Do it if you're a hardcore gamer and If you have the funds. If you're debating simply go for a PS4 or PC.

Love it, just one problem...

It's great, the graphics, the price and all but the a/v multi-port does not work with any one of the a/v cables I use, via Sonys brand or any other. I thought it was just the tv or the settings but it's not. It's just that port. I don't mind how it is, HDMI is good to use but I don't always have a HDMI-compatible tv available.Read full review...

GOOD BUT...

I RECIVED THE PRODUCT AND IT WORKS PERFECTLY, HOWEVER ALL BUT A FEW OF THE SCREWS THAT HOLD THE CASE TOGETHER WHERE MISSING AS WELL AS THE HDD COVER. NEEDLESS TO SAY THE CASE WAS FALLING APART. HAD TO BUY HARDWARE KIT AT LOCAL GAME SHOP. WORKS WELL SO FAR THOUGH. ONLY TURNED ON AND PLAYED A FEW MINUTES, PLAN ON GIFTING IT TO MY YOUNGER BROTHER FOR CHRISTMAS.Read full review...

The last good "console"

With next gen consoles these days trying to compete with pc gaming, using heavy amounts of downloadable content and great graphics its nice to have a console that does not require the player to pay to play online and still offer a solid gaming experience. Bravo Sony for creating one of my favorite consoles and possible the greatest, in my opinion, of all time (second to childhood consoles such as n64 and gamecube of course)Read full review...

Sony PlayStation 3 - December 2015

This PS3 works fantastically. It arrived when promised and was packaged securely. I was a little surprised at the cord to the tv (can't think of what it's actually called right now) - I assumed there was an hdmi cord in the jumble pictured but it worked out just fine.

There were a lot of personal files left on the console (pictures, music, games) but I was able to clear everything off without much hassle.

But now I've got it all set up and have had no problems with the controller or any of my games, movies, or apps! Overall extremely satisfied!

Great game console as I Expected!!

An excellent deal as always on ebay. The only change I would like to see is more info on the title page. I thought this deal came with connecting wires and one controller for some reason. After it arrived and I went back and read the entire body of the description, there it was, NO connections or controllers with this console. I missed it the first time I read the description. All of the deals around this one included extras. I would just like to see more detail. My old eyes need all the help they can get. I would have ordered a product that included these.
Again, the console was in great shape and works like a charm. I'm a repeat customer and will continue to use ebay as my primary ordering platform. RH
