PlayStation 3 80GB Console
When shopping for PS3 bundles the number of free PS3 games and additional hardware included can make the best PS3 deals stand out. PS3 Slim 160GB bundles look to have superseded the PS3 250GB. PS3 prices should be cheaper on lower gigabyte PS3 slim consoles.
Buying a new PlayStation 3 is a great reason to get back into what feeds your passion - games playing! Most fanatic PlayStation owners have had their PS2 powered-on every day for nigh on 7 years now. If you want fast flowing realism in high-definition then you'll love what this hardware can do.
As a multimedia hub, Blu-ray / DVD player and games console rolled into one, the PS3 can't be beaten. I have my PS3 hooked up to a 32" 1080p Widescreen TV and movies & games look absolutely fantastic.
It is one of the best Blu-ray players on the market, and arguably one of the cheapest too. If you enjoy movies, you should just take a look at the quality and see the difference.
As far as PS3 games are concerned, some argue that the Xbox 360 slim has the edge due to the late release of the PS3, although this is only temporary. PS3 will become the games console of choice for the "serious" gamer. Also, with the recent price drop and Blu-ray victory over HD-DVD, there has never been a better time for buying a PlayStation 3
