PS3 Buying Guide / Articles

Buying a Playstation 3

Quick Overview of PS3 Models and Prices – Which is best for you?

Different Models
The Playstation 3 comes in a variety of models ranging from 20GB to 320GB – The most prominent ones being the new Slim models available in 120GB, 160GB, 250GB, and 320GB. The only real differences in models is the “Fat” version of the PS3 and “Slim” – The Slim is more prominent. The biggest difference between slim models is simply the hard drive size.

120GB, 160GB, 250GB, 320GB?
This decision is based mostly on what you are planning on doing. If you are going to be copying music/videos/pictures to your PS3, you will want the larger 250GB or 320GB hard-drive. If your just a semi-hardcore casual gamer who only needs to save games, the 160GB is a great size that offers wiggle room. If your just a casual player the 120GB is fine and will hold tons of game saves.

Can I use HDMI with PS3?
All newer Slim models of the PS3 have HDMI outputs, so you can connect them to a TV with HDMI support. If you don’t have an HDMI ready TV, your PS3 can use the standard RCA hookups.

Used or new?
Though you can find abundant used PS3’s on Ebay or Craigslist, you run the risk of getting a broken system or being scammed. With the prices of the 120 and 160GB models so low, your better of investing in a new one. More often then not you will only save $20 – $40 buying used. We think it’s a wise choice to go new and pay the extra $20 and have a warranty + reliability.

Where can I buy a PS3?
You can buy a Playstation 3 from any online retailer such as Amazon – or in most electronics stores across the world.

Do I need any extra cables, plugs, hook ups? Or is buying the console come with everything I need?
Buying a PS3 console bundle should come with everything you need to hook up the PS3 and start playing – Power cord, Dual Shock Wireless controller, usb cable, and AV video cables (HDMI chord you will need to buy separate unless included in a special limited bundle)
