I had been a huge fan of PlayStation 2 – mostly for games like SoCom II, Grand Theft Auto 3, and Madden football but when PlayStation 3 came out – I thought it was just a tad too expensive for the amount of time I would actually have time to play it.
With the recent price break – I decided to pick one up over the weekend with Madden 2010 and COD 4. While I have not even touched COD 4, Madden 2010 has not disappointed. The graphics and game play are solid and are really impressive.
PlayStation 3 overall is pretty amazing. The slim model has great design and is very quiet. The wireless remotes are gold and the actual user interface is surprisingly nice as well with a ton of options. You can completely customize the way it looks with different themes. You can download movies, games, and game demos as well which is very nice as I like to “try before I buy”. Evan really likes the Wall-E game and it is fun to watch him try and use the controls.
I also picked up the wireless headset which is a big improvement over the long thin corded headset I used with PlayStation 2. I look forward to using it when challenging friends and hopefully finding a good group of people to play with regularly with COD 5.
To wrap it up – PlayStation 3 is a solid console and I am very happy to have the PlayStation remote back in action (compared to the Wii remote). I know I did not mention anything about BlueRay – that is not all that exciting for me – as I am done buying media when it comes to movies. How many versions of the Terminator 2 can one actually own? Personally I have at least 4. Time to move towards downloaded media that will hopefully outlast these media players.
