I used to play the N64, then an Xbox, and the Xbox 360 for the PS3. And let me say, PS3 leaves the Xbox 360 for dead, especially in the lovely slim version. All you need is a good HDMI cable and the PS3 becomes not just a console, but a complete entertainment system - photos, videos, internet browser, anything and everything you could want, the PS3 provides. My personal favourite feature is the built-in blu ray player and upgrading of regular DVDs to their highest possible output quality. I can't say enough good things about the PS3 - it's the best purchase I've made in years.
