A World of Gaming: Play the latest games with stunning visual and audio quality. From Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Pro Evo Soccer 2010 to Buzz! Quizzes and SingStar, once the domain of the hard core gamer there’s now something for the whole family.

2. It’s Smaller and Lighter

The new slim Playstation 3 model is all about size. It is about a third lighter and smaller than the older models. The original Playstation 3 console is one of the biggest and heaviest video game systems of all-time. The new slim line console is a real bonus to those who value space in their front room (double whammy with not needing a Blu Ray player).

Remember to link up your TV and Blu Ray with a HDMI cable to get the most benefit.
