Under the Hood
The PS3 features IBM's "Cell" processor and a co-developed Nvidia graphics processor that makes the system able to perform two trillion calculations per second. That makes the PlayStation 3 40 times faster than the PS2. Along with the traditional AV and composite connections, it also boasts an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port, which delivers uncompressed, unconverted digital picture and sound to compatible high-definition TV and projectors. The system is capable of 128-bit pixel precision and 1080p resolution for a full HD experience. This console also provides for a sound experience by supporting Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1, as well as Linear PCM 7.1. A pre-installed 320 GB hard disc drive allows you ample room to save games as well as download content from the internet.
Blu-Ray Is the New Way
Sony's PlayStation 3 games are encoded onto the Blu-Ray disc media format, which can hold six times as much data as traditional DVDs. This increase in capacity, combined with the awesome power of its processor and graphics card, promises mind-blowing games once developers have learned how to fully harness the new console's power. The PS3 will also support CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD+R formats.
In addition, PlayStation 3 system software update version 2.20 and up includes BD Live support. With this you can now play discs that support Blu-ray Disc Profile 2.0 (BD-LIVE) and you can also connect to the Internet while playing discs that support this format so that you can obtain additional features. Features that are available vary depending on the software in use.
New gamers intuitively move the controller while playing, even though that movement has traditionally had no relation to what's going on in the game. Sony has picked up on this tendency and is using it to bring a new level of control to the PS3. Inside the controller is a high-precision sixaxis sensing system that accurately detects fine movements in pitch, roll, and yaw, as well as three dimensions of movement. This means that future PS3 games will be controlled by the movements of your hands rather than just your thumbs. For example, you might be able to steer a car by holding the controller like a steering wheel.
While the PS3 controller looks much like its Dual Shock predecessors, it will lack the force-feedback vibration since that would only interfere with the sensing system. It uses Bluetooth 2.0 wireless technology and can support wireless controllers. It's a hot-swappable system, so if your controller is running low on power, just pause your game and connect a USB 2.0 cable. You can continue playing while your controller recharges automatically.
Play all your favourite games online and much more over the PlayStation Network. With the 320GB storage capacity of the PlayStation 3 Slim, you can also store more downloadable games, music, photos, videos and much more. PlayStation network members can also download free applications such as PlayStation Home, a ground-breaking 3D social gaming community available only on PS3 that allows users to interact, communicate and share gaming experiences, as well as Life with PlayStation, which offers users various news and information on your TV by connecting the PlayStation 3 to the network.

The Sony Playstation 3 Slim Console 320GB was a good price and excellent gaming.
The PS3 is just what I wanted and I have had no problems with it! It's just as good as the Xbox.
Fantastic console, you can't go wrong with the PS3!
Great value! Love the PS3. Free online connection, built in Blu-ray, what else you need!
So far it's been working great! A really nice console and my 2 sons love it! Would definitely recommend.
Excellent product ,great value love it
This formed part of an excellent overall purchase. Zavvi kept me up to date by email as this was a pre-release and also advised me when the goods had been despatched. Delighted. Many thanks
Had to replace an original PS3 that has now died! So this was the natural choice although it is a shame that you can no longer play PS2 games on these newer PS3s. Excellent selection of games makes this the best choice for our mobile youth clubs.
This PS3 is a great console and it is a great deal! Definitely worth the money!
Best deal I could find for a PS£ slim! Would recommend to my friends.
My previous PS3 which was bought not long after release and recently died from the yellow light of death. Hence why I purchased this Sony Playstation 3 Slim Console (320GB), the console is much smaller and in my opinion more sleek. I'm not too keen on the noise as it takes CDs into the drive, it has a slight cheap sound to it compared to the original but it does the job. I would highly recommend this product, not just as a gaming machine but also for the Blu-ray function, DVD and internet capabilities. It's well worth the price.
The Sony PS3 system is a good console with high memory capacity all for a great price. A must have for those next gen gamers.
The PS3: Sony Playstation 3 320GB Slim Console has brillant games and other media capabilities.
The PS3 320GB Console is great for gameplay and extra features is the best around. I was unlucky with my last Playstation as it stopped working.
I bought this console recently and am chuffed with it. I needed a bit more memory than my 40GB one at home. Zavvi is also is the cheapest place you can find this model anywhere on the market.
Sony Playstation 3 Slim Console (320 GB) is excellent!
For a great price you get a 2 in 1 3D Blu-ray player and cutting edge game station. What else can you ask for with a Sony Playstation 3!
The Playstation 3 Slim console is a good upgrade from the older, piano black PS3. It is much lighter, and well-designed, in a matte black color. You can play blu-ray movies and games, making the PS3 Slim 320GB console, all-in-all, an excellent buy.
The slimline Playstation 3 is a great console. It's highly efficient, and comes with plenty of memory space as standard.
The Playstation 3 is a very good product, and is really good value for money. The delivery arrived on time, and I will recommend it to family and friends.
Blu-Ray games and movies, online gaming is free, PSN games are available, and its exclusives are awesome. Every USB device (like joysticks and keyboards) can be connected and used with no problems. Netflix and the PS3 exclusives, like Uncharted, God Of War and Metal Gear Solid 4, make it the best console in the market. The problem is, that you need the 320 GB version if you are going to use PlayStation Plus, Home and the Store. Also, expect to install a part of the game for running on the console. But don't worry, the HDD can be replaced with any SATA 2.5 up to 750 GB. Have in mind that there are games like Rage, which require an installation of 8 GB on the HDD, so the Xbox 360 Slim who has 4 GB of internal memory need an HDD for playing this game. Buy this PS3, and evade all the hassles!
I am very pleased with the quick delivery of my Playstation 3, and even more pleased with the price.
Finally managed to buy a console after wanting one for years. Quick delivery service, no damage to any packaging. Tracking service of delivery was brilliant.
This new PS3 slim is amazing! Had a previous original first generation PS3, but it kept on over heating and died out sadly to the yellow light of death :( . Heard about this ps3 slim comming out, had to buy it, so I DID!!.. and it never over heats. Manufacturers have said this is the best PS3 console to date, with an almost zero chance of getting the dreaded yellow light. Also I have noticed that this edition of the console has a more crisp definition to it, meaning for more sharper play, and perfect for online multiplayer games for how with my previous ps3 I experienced lag in the gameplay, whereas with this ps3 everything is perfect. Sony has done its part in making an excellent console which ticks all the boxes.
