The Sony PS3 has been outselling Microsoft's older Xbox 360 in many parts of the world, though it is still far behind the much cheaper Nintendo Wii in sales. Coming from a guy who has the Wii, the PS3, and the Xbox 360 I can tell you if I could only keep one console, the PS3 would be it.

Sure, the PS3 motion control system isn't as slick as the Wii's and the Xbox 360 has lots more games. However, the Ps3 can do something that none of the other game consoles can do -- play Blu-ray movies. The Ps3 is worth the price of admission for its Blu-ray playback alone. Throw in the fantastic graphics and great gaming capability and the PS3 is a winner. If a Blu-ray player is on the wish list for someone you love this holiday season, go for the PS3 instead of a dedicated Blu-ray player.

For Whom:

The Sony PS3 is for gamers both hardcore and casual as well as HD movie fans.

The Good:

  • Serious gaming prowess
  • One of the best Blu-ray players around

The Bad:

  • More expensive than other game consoles
  • Not as many games available on PS3 as other consoles

Where to Buy:
