PlayStation 3 – A Better Value From a Gaming Standpoint?
You know, there is still a debate – some of you would say that there is no debate going on from your own point-of-view – going on about whether the PlayStation 3 is better than, worse than or equal to the Xbox 360 and/or the Nintendo Wii. This is something that we are not even going to bother getting into here as it is not the main focus. What is the main focus here is what makes the PlayStation 3 better than the others to most people.
There are so many articles out there and debates that are already raging about which of the three gaming systems are the best ones so this one will not be just another one of those. When it comes to being able to play online head-to-head against your friends without having to be concerned about adding more financial stress to what you and your family are already dealing with you can rest assured that this one is the one for you. You are able to go online and play head-to head against your friends with the PlayStation 3 easily.
Something else that makes the PlayStation 3 worth the money is the fact that there is a built-in Blu-ray drive that certainly allows you to play movies and other discs that are Blu-ray compatible. This does indeed add an element of satisfaction for those that like to have a gaming console that is indeed a multi-purpose instrument. Have you ever wanted to play online but were disappointed by the fact that there was no Internet signal where you are? This is where the Wi-Fi networking capability certainly does come in handy.
Something else that you are going to notice that is really good is the fact that you do not have to get rid of all of your PlayStation 2 games either as you are able to play them on the PlayStation 3 pretty easily. The only limitations that apply here is the fact that a few of the PS2 games will not work on the PS3 due to compatibility issues between the two generations of the gaming consoles. If you still have a PlayStation 2 console you will find out that you cannot play the games for the PlayStation 3 on it – compatibility issues here as well.
For most people it actually is a combination of everything already mentioned above that makes the PlayStation 3 the best of the lot as far as they are concerned. For others it is the fact that the games are specifically geared to adults. For yet others the draw is that you are able to compete with your friends online head-to-head easily and without paying any type of extra fees for this service. Yes, there are many other things that you are bound to be hearing that are not so flattering about the PlayStation 3 such as the fact that you will need to wait a few months for the games that you want to be available. You have to decide for yourself if this is what you really want.
