Product Description

From Amazon.ca

The fourth generation of hardware released for the PlayStation 3 entertainment platform, the PlayStation 3 160GB system is the next stage in the evolution of Sony's console gaming powerhouse. Loaded with a mix of multimedia features and functions available on earlier PlayStation 3 models, as well as a series of new advancements and refinements, the PlayStation 3 160GB system is destined to push the envelope in the realm of Next-Generation entertainment.

What's Under the Hood
As with previous models, the PlayStation 3 160GB system features an IBM "Cell" processor and a co-developed NVIDIA graphics processor that together allow the system to perform two trillion calculations per second. Yet the 160GB system manages to improve on this with its 45nm version of the processor, which although running at the same 60+nm speed as previous PS3 versions, uses less energy. This makes the unit's smaller size and quieter fan possible. Along with the traditional AV and composite connections, the 160GB system also boasts an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port, which delivers uncompressed, unconverted digital picture and sound to compatible high-definition TVs and projectors. (The system is capable of 128-bit pixel precision and 1080p resolution for a full HD experience) This console also provides for an extreme sound experience by supporting Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1, as well as Linear PCM 7.1. Finally, it features cross connectivity with your PC network and PlayStation Portable (PSP) and its pre-installed, 160GB hard disc drive allows you to save games as well as download content from The Internet. Unlike other models of the PlayStation 3, the 160GB system does not offer backwards compatibility.

Blu-ray, PlayStation Network Downloads and Beyond
PlayStation 3 utilizes the Blu-ray disc media format, which gives you the best high-definition viewing experience on your television, by way of the format's ability to hold six times as much data as traditional DVDs. This tremendous capacity, combined with the awesome power of the system's processor and graphics card, promises an endless stream of mind-blowing games, and other multimedia content. However, this does not mean that the PS3 is limited to Blu-ray discs - it also supports CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD+R formats. In addition, PlayStation 3 system software includes BD Live support that allows you to play discs that support Blu-ray Disc Profile 2.0 (BD-LIVE). This means that you can also connect to the Internet while playing discs that support this format to obtain additional features. Of course, PS3 owners also receive free access to the PlayStation Network (PSN), where through the PlayStation Store and PlayStation Home, they can download games, game demos, movies, and other content, as well as chat with friends, play mini-games, compete in tournaments and explore dedicated game spaces.

Sensational Controller
The Dualshock 3 wireless controller(one controller) included with The PlayStation 3 160GB system provides the most intuitive gameplay experience, with pressure sensors in each action button and the inclusion of the highly sensitive Sixaxis motion-sensing technology. Each hit, crash, and explosion is more realistic when the user feels the rumble right in the palm of their hand. It can even detect natural movements for real-time and high precision interactive play, acting as a natural extension of the user’s body. Dualshock 3 utilizes Bluetooth technology for wireless game play and the controller’s detachable USB cable to seamlessly and automatically charge the controller when connected to the PlayStation 3. By integrating all of these features into the popular PlayStation controller design, the Dualshock 3 further enhances the advanced gameplay experience only available on the PlayStation 3 system.

Synch with Your Other Sony HDMI Devices
The PlayStation 3 160GB system features HDMI + Bravia Synch functionality. Bravia Synch allows connectivity between Sony HDMI products without having to utilize multiple remote controls. This means that with the push of one button, users can control compliant Sony devices connected to your PS3 via HDMI cable.

What's in The Box:

  • New slimmer and lighter PS3 system with a 160 GB HDD, Internet-ready built-in Wi-Fi, 2 USB ports and HDMI + Bravia Synch output for 1080p resolution and connectivity between other Sony HDMI products.

4.0 out of 5 stars great entertainment system Feb. 6 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I did a lot of research before making this purchase, and I am happy with my choice. I wanted a system that would play Blu-ray discs, stream media from the internet, and sync up with my PC. The PS3 does all of this, plus it plays video games :) If you are looking for a system that does it all, this is the one!

The only problem with this console is that it's a colossal time snatcher. Playing playstation 3 is like being in a time warp. Watch out for your marriage!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Entertainment! Nov. 2 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's a very good system. The only weird thing that I have seen so far is the fact that it cost the same as the 120GB (weird, right?) and that, when streaming music from a media server to the ps3, there are times when the ps3 doesn't recognize the server. Aside from that, everything is a-ok!

It was given as a birthday present and the person that received it LOVES it! Does absolutely everything although I would personally like to have games like Mario and donkey kong for it, that's the only flaw in the system but otherwise it works excellent!

I was a bit worried in buying a reconditioned unit but it turns out everything is perfect. looked almost like new except for a scuff mark and that was it. I would do it again especially with the savings I got

5.0 out of 5 stars Good as any. Nov. 18 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Works as expected. Seems to be capable of playing PSX games but not PS2 games. Doesn't have any grips to allow it vertical positioning but that's not a big deal for me. Runs games as expected so there's really nothing to gripe of praise, it works.

Amazing gift to give but its not backwards compatible which made it suck for the first few weeks until we bought some newer and expensive games.
