This morning I got up super early to try and land a WII to make some quick holiday cash, but I happend to be #11 in line and target only got 10 Wii's. The sales accociate told me they had one PS3 in the back if I wanted that, so I said sure why not. Worst comes to worst I'd just return it if I didn't like it. So I pick up Resistance Fall of Man, HDMI Cable, & the 20GB PS3. Get it all setup on the HDTV and we are off. Launch Resistance and the first thing I notice is the Nintendo 64 gaming menu. You would think that after dropping almost 600+ dollars I could get some fancy graphics. However, what ever its just a menu so I launched the single player game on medium and I can say the graphics are nice but I saw nothing that looked any better than Gears of War, or COD3 on my 360. Further more I can not for the life of me get used to the controller. I would not consider my hands to be above avg but both of my roommates agree that the 360 controller is sex compared to the PS3. Next we decide to try out the multiplayer so I navigate the inrediblely painful setup process that I absolutley hate. If I where to keep the PS3 I would for sure go buy a wireless keyboard. About the only major plus is that Resistance with 40 players is silky smooth, which still has me in awe. However, the games are crazy with 40 people and it was hard to stay alive. After football we decided we would try the webbrowser so I journey over to one of my favorite video sites and low and behold, you can't watch WMV content. And can you say popup city? Its so annoying to have to go thorugh a process to close a popup, and the biggest gripe, I have a 60" tv and you have to squint to see the text. Finally, we decide to try out Talledega Nights to see if blueray was all that it is cracked up to be, and the big answer to this is NO. I have comcast with all the hd movie channels so it was nothing I'm not used to already. And with the prices of blueray around 30 dollars for a movie give me a break. Cliff Notes. Pros. Online play for Resistance was incredible. The system is dead silent which is so nice compared to the military grade jet fighter from the 360 dvd rom. Visually its a great looking center piece for a media center. Waiting times are pretty much not existant. Bluetooth is nice for the headset. Upgradeable harddrive Cons. No componet / HDMI cable. Seriously what a joke. I had to drop 60 extra dollars just to enjoy the next gen system. - could be bought for less but I made an impulse buy and if I where to keep it I would just buy a cheaper cable and return this one. Web browser is awful. - popups, poor navigation* System update was very slow almost 10 minutes from start to finish. - 8Mbps comcast come on now. I hate the text inputting process. - just terrible. Controller is not comfortable although it is very light. - just does not fit well in my hands* System navigation is a joke and comical at best. - while simple I love the 360. Lack of interesting games - Its still a launch system but I feel its way behind the xbox. Bottomline: I wanted to love the PS3 and I wanted to have my 360 on eBay. However the negatives just keep piling up and if you really plan on me spending 500 dollars to be able to compile a huge list of negatives, invite a majority of my friends over and get opionions and we all tend to agree that Sony is way behind the powercurve. If you have a 360 and are having a great time then I would say give the PS3 a year or so and then maybe we'll have something great on our hands. But for now this thing is a FLOP! She'll be back at target first thing in the morning.
