Under the Hood
The PS3 features IBM's "Cell" processor and a co-developed Nvidia graphics processor that makes the system able to perform two trillion calculations per second. That makes the PlayStation 3 40 times faster than the PS2. Along with the traditional AV and composite connections, it also boasts an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port, which delivers uncompressed, unconverted digital picture and sound to compatible high-definition TV and projectors. The system is capable of 128-bit pixel precision and 1080p resolution for a full HD experience. This console also provides for a sound experience by supporting Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1, as well as Linear PCM 7.1. A pre-installed 320 GB hard disc drive allows you ample room to save games as well as download content from the internet.
Blu-Ray Is the New Way
Sony's PlayStation 3 games are encoded onto the Blu-Ray disc media format, which can hold six times as much data as traditional DVDs. This increase in capacity, combined with the awesome power of its processor and graphics card, promises mind-blowing games once developers have learned how to fully harness the new console's power. The PS3 will also support CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD+R formats.
In addition, PlayStation 3 system software update version 2.20 and up includes BD Live support. With this you can now play discs that support Blu-ray Disc Profile 2.0 (BD-LIVE) and you can also connect to the Internet while playing discs that support this format so that you can obtain additional features. Features that are available vary depending on the software in use.
New gamers intuitively move the controller while playing, even though that movement has traditionally had no relation to what's going on in the game. Sony has picked up on this tendency and is using it to bring a new level of control to the PS3. Inside the controller is a high-precision sixaxis sensing system that accurately detects fine movements in pitch, roll, and yaw, as well as three dimensions of movement. This means that future PS3 games will be controlled by the movements of your hands rather than just your thumbs. For example, you might be able to steer a car by holding the controller like a steering wheel.
While the PS3 controller looks much like its Dual Shock predecessors, it will lack the force-feedback vibration since that would only interfere with the sensing system. It uses Bluetooth 2.0 wireless technology and can support wireless controllers. It's a hot-swappable system, so if your controller is running low on power, just pause your game and connect a USB 2.0 cable. You can continue playing while your controller recharges automatically.
Play all your favourite games online and much more over the PlayStation Network. With the 320GB storage capacity of the PlayStation 3 Slim, you can also store more downloadable games, music, photos, videos and much more. PlayStation network members can also download free applications such as PlayStation Home, a ground-breaking 3D social gaming community available only on PS3 that allows users to interact, communicate and share gaming experiences, as well as Life with PlayStation, which offers users various news and information on your TV by connecting the PlayStation 3 to the network.

I had the PS3: Sony Playstation 3 Slim Console (320 GB) and was delighted with my purchase, I ordered this for myself and my husband and he was very happy. It's slim and stylish with so much memory and storage. I couldnt ask for more from a console.
Great price for the product I was after and what a console! I will never be bored again!
It is the best product that I have ever bought and I'm enjoying using it and it's good value for money I'm very happy with.
Super console! A must have and to top it off TheHut sells it at a bargain price - lowest price I have ever seen on a ps3!
Fast delivery and reasonably priced.
Unbelievable price for an unbelievable console! Definite must have for any PS3 lover and gamer!
Excellent console. 5 star minimum. =)
The ps3 is amazing the condition was perfect and personally i think it is one of the best games console in the world
I've had a PS3 from day 1 and to this day it's still going strong. But I decided to get myself a slim and opted for this monster. TONS of room on there for what is now an incredible digital service from Sony and the Playstation network make storage the key factor to the PS3's future. The machine is awesome. I have it hooked up to my telly and the sound through my stereo and using a media server (I find Wild Media Server the best) I can stream films and music and photos to my TV and stereo. That leaves plenty of room on the HDD for downloading high def movies, demos and full games off the Playstation store. Let's not forget the Blu-Ray drive and the recent update to 3D! I am lucky enough to have won a 3DTV and I have to say that the tech is amazing. With more and more 3D content coming everyday the future is looking bright for Sony's workhorse.
