Thats right. I couldn't stand not having a next gen system so i finally splashed money down on the PS3. Here is my short list of reasons why.
1. Blu-Ray: The PS3 is one of the best blur-ray players on the market. As with any blu-ray player it also upgrades any standard dvds you may own to 1080i HD quality.
2. MGS4: aka Metal Gear Solid 4. The series is amazing beautiful and I own every one. This game is quite possibly the best game to own....not to mention how beautiful it looks.
3. The sixaxis controller: Very quietly this controller has gone under the radar of most people. Basically this controller was built with wii like capabilities to detect motion. Its used in games such as Heavenly Sword and Warhawk. The even bigger underlying issue is the fact that Sony realizes the importance of this system as is releasing a new "wand" for the PS3.
4. Free access to the PS Network: Free> Xbox Live $
5. The PS3 is a wireless, bluetooth receiver
