Sony PlayStation 3 (slim)

Reviewed by dougmorton (Currently owns)

I've owned a PS3 since 2009. Originally the 80GB "fat" version which developed a fault causing me to upgrade in May 2011 (1 year ago). Since buying my original PS3 in 2009 I had bought an Xbox 360 in early 2011 which I enjoyed using. However, I still wanted to replace my PS3 if only so I could still play the games I'd spent hundreds of pounds on. I enjoy using the PS3 more than the Xbox, it just seems a lot more refined. But I'll try and keep this as a PS3 review, rather than a comparison of the two. The controller is very nice. Like many, I had used the Dualshock 2 on the PS2 so it was a very natural progression. In 2012 there's clearly a wide spectrum of games for the console, well it has been on the market for years, so what do you expect? I won't go too much in to that. If I didn't own so many similar products I'm sure I would use the system a lot more and still fulfil my needs. With risk of rambling any more I'll end it here and just say, although it doesn't look amazing, doesn't have specs that would "Wow" a PC gamer and has been around for years, I would recommend it for a casual gamer like myself. The number 7 really does sum it up.
