Playstation 3: Complete Review
Sony's Playstation 3
PS3 Controller: Dual Shock
The controller is just the right size and very easy to handle. The dual shock that is built in, is amazing. For example, on Fight Night, when you get tired you feel your heart beating in the controller. This is a really cool feature. The controller has just the right amount of buttons. That sounds like maybe a stupid statement. What I mean is, there are not 15 different buttons that you need to play each game, on this system. I rate the controller a 9 out of 10, in the amount of easiness. The only improvement to me would be if they could make the part you cradle in your hand softer instead of hard plastic but, I figure I'm just being extra picky.
The Playstation Network (PSN) is a great internet portal through your television and PS3. I give high marks for the Playstation Network because, it is very quick and easy to use. The best part about this feature is that there are many free video games that you can play online. Demo and complete games are downloadable everyday of the week. The internet is set up very nice with certain sites that have apps just for the PS3 such as, You Tube. I would rate this station an 8 out of 10 in it's features and it's usage.
The PSN runs smooth and its simple to navigate but, most importantly it's free.
On average the video games for the PS3 feature great game play and do not forget about the great graphics. The games are easy to control, and fun being the key word. The CDs have a scratch proof surface, which makes them a lot less likely to scratch. I would rate the PS3 a 9 out of 10. It seems like you always want a particular game to last a little longer so that they can not be easily beaten but, I know this is not always possible. Graphics, game play and sound on the PS3 are second to none.
The Playstation 3 comes with a built in CD player and a built in DVD player. Also, the storage space is huge and this makes there is no reason at all for a memory card. The PS3 has easy movement even for beginners and you can store pictures, video and games in the storage space. The songs show the CD case as the music plays. This means, there is no need to purchase additional drives and that part is a nice feature. The player comes pre-loaded Blue Ray DVD and CD player. The sound is high quality. I would rate the Playstation 3 a 9 out of 10. They are second to none, to be honest, in this category each and every time that Sony comes out with a new console.

The PSN (Playstation Network) is a nice addition because, it is free and it also allows you to download games, both games that you can purchase and for the free ones. The game selection and graphics are unbeatable. The controller is a matter of opinion but personally I love the placement of the buttons and toggles. It is also nice to play with a cordless controller that charges with a cord but, also does not require batteries. Plus it is a great addition to play games, CD's, and Blu-Ray DVD's. This give you a great variety of things that you can entertain while on one system. The system itself is not as nice looking as the Xbox 360 is and it should at least offer different colors. I will say the games always work and with the thick coating on their games they rarely scratch unless they are severely mistreated.
Overall, I give the Playstation 3 a 9 out of 10 when all the categories are considered. I have had the PS3 since it's release year in 2006. Mine was my Christmas gift that December and I still play in now in 2015 although I have the PS4 now also.

Sound and Picture Quality (Graphics)
I believe Sony lays down the law on sound without a doubt. The graphics of the top PS3 games is unmatched to say the least. Colors combine with colors to make for one sensational looking game. Even the XBox 360 suffers slightly in these departments in comparison to the PS3. 10 out of 10.
