The Sony PlayStation 3 is a very sophisticated machine. Not only does it play video games, it is a Blu-Ray player, a DVD player, a CD player, and it has many other useful functions. The PS3 can be used to store video, music, and pictures of precious family moments, fun times with your friends, or just anything that you'd like. Some people may say that the PS3 is overpriced, but for its full HD compatibility and free online gameplay, the PlayStation pays for itself. The PS3 comes with an online store in which free wallpapers, themes, add ons, and other downloads are available. There are also games for sale, HD movies, TV shows, and mini games that save directly onto your hard drive. The HDD is very easy to upgrade; simply purchase a laptop HDD, take your old one out and pop the old one in for maximum storage capacity. You get a lot of bang for your buck with the PS3, Blu-Ray HD player, DVD player, CD player, video game console, and a source to download the newest and hottest games and movies. Though there are not as many exclusive games out for PS3 as there are for XBOX 360, the free online play, online store, and other very entertaining features definitely makes the PS3 a better buy.
