Playstation 3 Slim - A Review To Buyers by NTManh


									Playstation 3 Slim: A Review To Buyers
For serious gamers, choosing the right game console is an important decision. While some people simply use videogames as a way to relax and
unwind alone or with friends or as a way to keep the kids occupied for a couple of hours a day, others are obsessed. They may spend hours and hours
playing particular games and competing against friends or over the Internet.

Game consoles have come a long way from the days of Atari and Pong, and today`s consoles are used for more than just game-playing. They can
also be used to download and store music, pictures and other information and they can also be used instead of a DVD or Blu-Ray player.

The Sony Playstation 3 Slim is certainly more than just a game console. Clearly Sony recognized that it was being used as more than just a source of
recreational game-playing as within a few months of releasing a 120GB version, they introduced one with a larger 250GB hard drive. This extra space
obviously provides more storage room and encourages users to download more content from Sony`s website, making it a win-win for the consumer as
well as for Sony.

Apparently, Sony`s incentive in introducing this new version of the Playstation was to boost sales since the previous incarnation`s popularity was
lagging behind that of competitor`s like Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox 360. Some people in the industry see this product as Sony`s chance to prove
itself as a true player in the gaming console market.

It will obviously take time to see whether Sony will be successful with the launch of this product, but they have already sold millions of units and those
numbers are sure to increase as the holiday season approaches and game-loving kids and adults around the world need to have the newest toy.

Purchases of the new Playstation 3 Slim obviously help Sony`s bottom line and they seem to be counting on a lower price point to boost volume of
sales. At the same time, Sony will probably see an influx of income as purchasers of the Playstation 3 Slim will need to purchase games that are made
specifically for the console. Unfortunately, games that were designed for the Playstation 2 are not compatible with the new version. It remains to be
seen whether this will discourage owners of the Playstation 2 from upgrading to the Playstation 3.

It may be worth the upgrade simply for some of the other features of the unit, making it appeal to other family members in addition to the game-lovers.
The attractive design ensures that the console is not an eyesore. Even the pickiest design-conscious person may not object to having the Playstation 3
Slim on display in the den. There is no need to hide it away in a cabinet. And, it is thought to be one of the best Blu-Ray Disc players on the market
today, suddenly rendering it useful to those family members who simply want to watch a movie.

All in all, the Sony Playstation 3 Slim is sure to bring hours of enjoyment to the entire family and probably anyone who receives it this holiday season
will have little to complain about.
