The tagline reads, “It only does everything”, and beyond making your meals, cuddling with you while you watch a movie and tucking you in at night, that statement is pretty much true. The PlayStation with Move Bundle is pretty much the best thing to happen to gaming since someone figured out that you could put different numbers on all of the sides of a cube, and called it “dice”. There is enough fanboy chatter out there to give you an idea of the love that gamers have for this system, and there are enough reasons to want to bid on one of these at a penny auction that we thought we would share a few of them with you. Here are a few of the best features of the new PlayStation 3.
There is a story out there about how Saddam Hussein had sent his agents out into the world in the 90s to purchase as many first-generation PlayStation machines as they could get their hands on. As legend has it, the agents were discovered trying to make their way to Iraq with thousands of these machines. Why did they want so many of them? Was Saddam trying to set up a massive community of gamers to keep his people happy? No, Saddam knew the awesome processing power of the PlayStation and he was after the processors. That’s it. That’s all he wanted.
Two generations later, the PS3 processor is capable of performing up to two trillion calculations per second. That’s almost as many calculations in a second as the US runs up in debt in dollars in a month. Impressive, indeed. Moreover, the current 320GB system has a 45nm processor, which can run at the same 60+ nm speed as the older ones, but uses far less energy. Your electrical bill will thank you, and it will prevent the system from overheating.
Got an HD TV? If you do, you’ll be pleased to know that this system has an HDMI port that will allow you to connect to your fancy TV so that you can take full advantage of the insane graphics that the people who develop PS3 games have designed.
Are you a control freak? I don’t mean the kind of person that needs other people to do exactly what you say. I mean the kind of person that loves video game controllers. If so, get ready for the DualShock3 wireless controller. This bad boy has pressure sensors in all of the buttons and also contains an incredibly sensitive Sixaxis motion sensor that goes above and beyond almost anything we have seen in controller development up to this point. Let me just say this about the PS3 controller: Bam! That is all.
More than Gaming
Oh yes, it’s a great gaming system, there is no doubt. But more than just a system for playing some of the best video games on the market on one of the fastest systems imaginable, the PlayStation 3 provides Blu-Ray support, giving you the opportunity to hold up to sex times (!) more data than traditional DVDs can, which means superior HD viewing.
There’s a lot going on with the PS3 system. This one comes highly recommended to gaming enthusiasts looking for a superior experience.
