Storage Medium – the PS3 uses the innovative Blu-Ray Disc so yes, aside from playing your games on this sleek baby, you can also watch some of your favorite movies in hi-def (considering the price of a Blu-Ray player… it's actually a pretty sweet deal). Of course the PS3 can still play older storage devices like CD and DVDs but who’s keeping track really?
Storage Capacity – here’s where the differences lie. A PS3 may come in the 20 GB, 40 GB, 60 GB, 80 GB, or 160 GB package, the bigger the space, the great the price of course. But trust us, with loads of songs, movies, game previews, updates, net time and game saves – a good storage space is optimal.
Controllers – from the PS1 analog, to the PS2’s Dual Shock2 to the wireless Dual Shock 3 controller, things just keep getting better and better with the PS3. The controller even lets you turn on the PS3 as you wish. How seriously cool is that?
Connectivity – 1 Ethernet port, 1 HDMI port and 3 USB ports just waiting to have something plugged in. Let’s not forget the Wi-Fi and Flash Card Readers Of course the availability of connectivity varies with the storage space you pick out – lower space, less specs so try to go for the standard 60 GB
