We got the 160gb version with 4 downloadable games included, which was great value. Very easy to setup & start playing.

Downloading the games takes a while, but that might be the speed of my broadband connection.

Dawn, London Avid gamer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very impressive, great little functions that ps2 didn't have but makes all the difference. The game play is great. I was not disappointed.
Bad points:
Its hard to install the ps3 to a standard tv, difficult to download the free games from the ps3 network, even when it is plugged in via ethernet. We found we had to order a wireless router. It was slightly inconvenient because we have a huge tv, and found that we had to move it to our router at the other end of the room because the ps3 wouldn't show on the computer screen.

Manufacturer's Description

Providing a highly attractive entry point to the world of High Definition gaming and movies, the new PS3 is designed to bring the next generation of interactive home entertainment to households all across Europe. Along with an expanding line-up of PS3 titles (a total of 65 titles tracking across all genres by Christmas), the new PS3 is equipped with a 40GB HDD and includes all the features central to the High Definition entertainment experience; true next generation gameplay, stunning High Definition Blu-ray Disc movies, SIXAXIS wireless controller, USB, Wi-Fi and HDMI connectivity, all powered by the Cell Broadband Engine, the digital heart of PS3.

As with the 60GB PS3, the new PS3 features upgradeable system software allowing new features and functionality to be added to the system as time progresses. A recent system software update, for example, enabled PS3 to upscale DVD discs played on the system to full 1080P High Definition.

The new model is also no longer backwards compatible with PlayStation 2 titles, reflecting both the reduced emphasis placed on this feature amongst later purchasers of PS3, as well as the availability of a more extensive line-up of PS3 specific titles (a total of 65 titles across all genres by Christmas).
