I like this console a lot. It has a great selection of games, and the graphics are amazing. The only problem is that it freezes up sometimes in the middle of a game. Other than that, I love that you can put pictures on it, and music, and play movies. My family and I can be on this for hours! It is a little difficult to figure out atfirst but once you do it is great. There is really no need for a computer with this gaming console. If you are considering a Blu Ray player, then you should really think about getting a PS3. This playstation features a Blu Ray player which shows really good graphics, and you can also use itas an internet browser because of its wifi capabilities. The controllers connectivity with the Playstation 3 is wireless, and very good until it comes to a certain distance. You charge them with a USB cord to connect the controller to the console. The Playstation Network is very good for going online and buying games through the PS3 itself. You can also buy game add-ons. Also you can buy certain movies to download directly to your PS3. With the Playstation Network you can go online and browse the internet on your television instead of on the computer. The only thing is the controller makes it hard to navigate and type unless you buy a wireless keypad. So as you can see, this is a great product!
