Why Buy PS3 Console

Why Buy PS3 Console

The PS3 console is one of the top three gaming consoles in the market (others are the Xbox 360 and Nintendo’s Wii) each appealing to a different fan base. In this article I will be discussing why buy PS3 console.

1.  HDTV Compatible
The console supports the following screen resolution 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p which is more than any other console in the market. The PS3 console can be connected to your HDTV via the HDMI output that comes with the console.

2. Blu-Ray Disc Drive

If you are a lover of Blu-ray movies then you should consider buying PS3 console. In fact the PS3 console is the only console that currently supports Blu-Ray technology in the market.  The advantage is that you can play Blu-Ray movies and require less discs for your video games.

3. Game Titles

Another reason you should buy PS3 console is the variety of titles to choose from as compared with other gaming consoles. Though the Xbox 360 similarly has a broader game titles, the games are more hardcore focus while Wii titles tends towards family entertainment. Please note that there is no backward compatibility for PS2 games on the PS3 slim console versions.

3. Multimedia Entertainment

You can do a lot of great multimedia stuff with the slim version of the console. For example you can import photographs and movies, watch the BBC iPlayer on your TV, Stream videos from your laptop, play games online with others e.t.c.

4. Motion Controller

With the release of the PS3 wand (a motion-sensing controller), the PS3 console is now in-line with other gaming consoles (Kinect for Xbox and Wii Remote for the Wii console). These controllers allow the consoles to detect dimensional movements.

5. Free Online Service

Okay it might not be as sophisticated as Xbox Live however if you are not a hardcore gamer,  the PlayStation Network is more than sufficient. In addition joining the network is free (joining the Xbox network requires an annual subscription).


The console’s support for HDTV, a Blu-Ray disc player for playing Blu-Ray movies, a free online service with no annual subscription and the wide variety of game titles are my reasons why buy PS3 console.
