Strengths: all inclusive and does everything well
Weakness: learning to use the remote :D
I got this instead of a Blu-ray player. I am still learning to use it, but it is awesome. I am looking forward to getting it on the internet.
This is definitely a great choice for a HD home theater. Be sure to use all the lastest gadgets and cables to hook it up to your other equipment. I got a professional to hook it up. You will be blown away by Blu-ray!

Strengths: MLB games the best on PS3 which is exclusive, built in wi-fi, free online gaming, GTA IV and Gran Turismo 5, upgradeable HDD.
Weakness: No PS2 support but not really needed
I owned my Xbox 360 first got the Nintendo Wii second and got this 40gb PS3 on christmas. The Xbox died 3 times and Microsofts support people are rude and stupid I got back an old console and it sounds like a lawn mower. My PS3 on the other hand is great, silent, and shiny. The blu-ray makes a big difference in HD and I just love MLB 08 the show for PS3 best baseball game thats a sony exclusive....

I owned my Xbox 360 first got the Nintendo Wii second and got this 40gb PS3 on christmas. The Xbox died 3 times and Microsofts support people are rude and stupid I got back an old console and it sounds like a lawn mower. My PS3 on the other hand is great, silent, and shiny. The blu-ray makes a big difference in HD and I just love MLB 08 the show for PS3 best baseball game thats a sony exclusive. That could be one reason but theres the new dualshock 3 which is great though it should have been included once the lawsuit was over with the immersion people but thats ok. Grand Theft Auto IV should only be played on PS3 Its the best, but the online was sluggish but an update fixed that only 60gb ps3's still have problems with gta. I actually use my ps3 more than my 360 and I have more 360 games. This is just a more enjoyable system, and if you ever had a psp or used one the gui/os is almost the same except some added stuff. Online gameplay is free no paying for xbl like I do but stopped since then. Buy this and you won't regret it. Also if space is necessary they have 2.5 sata hdd that fit I have 160gb but they go up to 500gb! PS3 is king and has no internal problems for what your paying for!!!

PS3 40G console
Strengths: Quiet, less heat than other PS3 models
Weakness: not compatible to old PS2 games
PS3 is a great console. I indeed like playing this over Wii. The main reason is that I can download playable demo of new games, such that I can try playing to see which games I really like to buy it. In addition, being a Blu-ray player is a plus.

PS3 and free Blu-ray movies
Strengths: Great graphics, free online play, Blu-ray player.
Weakness: Games are a bit expensive, as are the extra controllers and other accessories. It scratches rather easy.
This is a great product. The system was put together very well, it’s very sturdy. I loved playing Assassins Creed on it, it has great graphics. The Six-axis feature is very fun to use. Being able to play online free is also a big plus. This is a great buy, and I recommend it to anyone who likes consoles.

Playstation 3 40GB
Strengths: Blu-Ray HD, 1080P
Weakness: Cost of console and accessories (i.e. extra controller & remote)
The Sony PS3 is an awesome do everything home entertainment unit. For the price of a stand alone BLu-Ray player, the PS3 is the way to go. Beautiful Blu-Ray playback in full 1080P HD. Also once connected to the internet, the firmware stays up to date and one can purchase additional games, view movie trailers and surf the web.
