What do you all think of the PS3???

My brother bought one a couple weeks ago and loves it. He is wanting me to buy one so we can play a gamed named Warhawk online togehter. I looked online and found that Skate was just released, and this looks really nice.

I do not have a tone of time to play video games... But I do enjoy them when I get the chance. The PS3's free online play sounds nice aswell. I'm not sure how much I would use the Blu-Ray player for DVD's as I mostly rent movies, and haven't noticed any Blu-Ray rentals.

I'm just trying to decide if I should go get one...

What are your thoughts???

i think the ps3 will outlive the standard 5 or so year product cycle that seems to be the norm for most consoles. also, i personally am a huge fan of some of the sony exclusive titles like gran turismo and ratchet and clank.

that said, i don't have one yet, but i will someday in the not so distant future.

I'd rather have a Wii and XBox 360.
It has great graphics though.

I have one but I use it more for playing blu ray movies than playing games.. I havent played a game on it for 3+ months since nothing good is out yet.. But GT5 and grand theft auto are just around the bend..

I must admit, I've always been an xbox fan myself. The PS3 seems to have a bit more going for it on the graphics end of it right now but I can't get over the xbox's user base, feel, and I find the game play more fun than Playstation.

Although Halo 3 is going to be available for the PS3 now too. I'm not sure how much that's going to revolutionize or expand anything but that could give the PS3 a boost.

Halo 3 on PS3 will be on a PS3 server... there are far more Xbox 360 owners out there

i thought the 360 had a free version of xbox live?

but i defenitely have no plans to get a ps3, every single time i have used one in a store, it has froze on me. the guy at toys 'r us told me he would reset the ps3, but he stopped taking down the out of order sign. i have a wii, and love it! gameplay over graphics!
