TheInquirer.net has been "testing" the PS3 for a month now and have found themselves thoroughly impressed with the console. They say that it's sleek, powerful and quiet, with the games looking awesome, and the online element having been done incredibly well.
They weren't too impressed with the Sixaxis controller though as they found it too light although a lack of rumble wasn't as bad as they thought. They also thought that the price was too expensive.
What did bowl them over though was the Playstation Network online store which they found very well designed and "far superior to Microsoft's mishmash Xbox 360 offering".
