Why you should buy a PS3

If your not a gamer your probably thinking why do I need a PS3? The PS3 is more than a gaming console. I know the Wii gets a lot of hype, but would you rather have a game system or an entertainment system? I've had the PS3 for about 4 years now and it's been great.. I also told before most would commit that Blue Ray would over take HD DVD.

#1- The PS3 has a Blue Ray player and a cell processor so powerful the Air Force is buying over 1,500 of them to link and build a super computer.

#2- If you listen to music at home then leave the 5 disc changer alone. Store all your music on the PS3 and link it to Windows Media Player to download your content directly from your computer, or stream it to the PS3.

#3-Got a digital camera? Pop out your memory card and look at those photos you just took. Then save them to the PS3 which can provide you with a secondary backup. ( You can create playlist for both music and photos)

#4- Always have movie night with the PS3. Get a Netflix account and they will send you a disk that will allow you to stream movies instantly to the PS3. Movies titles can also be purchased from Sony.
#5 Want to keep up with the latest news and gossip? Get a wireless key board and surf the web from the comfort of your favorite chair.

#6 Do you already own the PSP? Stream all your content from the PS3 to the PSP from any wifi spot.

#7 Last, but definitely not least is the gaming. PS3 has over 700 titles out right now. Think your not a gamer? If you like Monopoly or Jeopardy, or any of the other classics then think again..

Think video games are a waist of time? Researchers at the University of Rochester in New York found that "those people who play action video games can process visual information more quickly and can track 30 percent more objects than non video game players".

So if you have been on the fence, or just wondering about gaming systems consider the value a PS3 could bring to your digital life. (No Sony is not paying me, but I wish)


  1. Hey, this is my first time here and I'm enjoying it so far.

    It's ironic that I was talking about Blue Ray the other day and how you don't hear much about it. (I was at a retirement luncheon with 6 other 40+ ladies). I was really surprised when one of them said, you don't have to buy the player you can watch movies from your PS3. So now after reading this, I'm really curious - how much are they?

    Thanks for the post.

  2. Here are prices from Walmart. These are bundles but the base price is $299.00. Thank your for you comment.
