PlayStation 3 In Top 5 Best Electronics List @ reports:

Despite our confident posturing, most men really have no idea why some TVs, media players and stereo systems cost more than others. But don't worry, gents, in order to keep you from spending way more than you need to when you build your home entertainment center, we've identified the five best electronic devices of 2007; rare gadgets whose bang actually matches the hard-earned bucks they cost.

Sure, it was released near the back end of 2006 and it's currently in third place in the console market, but when you re-envision as a complete home-entertainment center and factor in it's recent price drop, the PS3 becomes a grade-A purchase. Specifically, not only does the PS3 boast one of the most impressive lists of games on the market (certainly more than can be found on the Wii), but it also supports titles from the first two PlayStation consoles, plays now-coveted Blu-ray discs as well as DVDs and CDs, has a 60GB hard drive, built-in Wi-Fi, supports wireless controllers, and pumps out pictures at 1080p. Clearly, if your looking to knock out your gaming needs, movie needs and CD needs in one short purchase, the PS3 in the name of your game.

The Nintendo Wii or Xbox 360 did not appear in the top 25 list. (PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

Well, it deserves it. I'm suprised the 360 didn't make the cut as I've always assumed that askmen targeted the kinda guys who play and/or own a 360.

Still, though, I think the ps3 is going to remain the underdog until 2008. This holiday is a good chance for it to gain ground, though, and I personally think Microsoft should've waited to release Halo 3 until christmas to steal sony's thunder - assuming most people who get it decide to purchase before christmas comes around.

The Wii never stood a chance.

Playstation 3 is the hottest device I have owned
I am an adult young male, I love my PS3..anyway.....The Holidays will be interesting for Sony to say the least. Some fanboys want to count Sony out, but they have never had Halo or Mario. GtA IV would have helped tremendously but Uncharted looks so awesome. Let me give you a little perspective on the psp (that supposedly had no games (by fanboys) last year even though Metal Gear, Daxter, and Syphon Filter were all 9.0's). The psp last christmas was priced at $199 for the core and $249.99 for the entertainment pack. The ds $130. PSP moved over 400,000 in November and 953,000 in December. This was the most expensive handheld gaming device, so even the npd was shocked. The christmas before (2005) it moved 1.3 million in December ($299) with no core pack! I say this because ps2 last december moved 1.4 million ($130) and xbox 360 moved 1.1 million (399.99), ps3 497,000 ($599)(but sold out quick of all stock available). Sony had a reported 2.7 million interested buyers last November but only 197,000 consoles shipped November 19-31th. I can never guess what the high def market (blu ray) and gaming fans will purchase this xmas. How many 360 owners who have had consoles for almost 2 years will be looking for something else? How many wii owners? It is hard to tell demand. PS3 is $100 cheaper with crazy games this fall, and the blu ray market will be packed with hotter titles than hd-dvd like Spiderman 1,2,3, Ratatouille, Pirates 3, Harry Potter 1-5, Cars, Superbad (just announced for December 3), Die Hard, Fantastic Four,The Simpsons Movie, and more exclusives ,etc. We shall see.

I find it funny that The Round Peg & Power of Green both tried to report this as spam when i
first posted it. has over 5 million readers a month and is sponsored by well known companies like Target, IGN, Team Xbox, Gamespy, and Rotten Tomatoes just to name a few. You two should go check the site out because you could learn something. Power of Green your a hypocrite because you make comments about Sony fanboys censoring positive 360 news or negative PS3 news yet you are guilty of the same thing by censoring positive PS3 and negative 360 news. And The Round Peg your pathetic giving me a bad rating on two of my stories today just because we don't like each other. That shows some real class but I've already proved your a hypocrite and pathetic with this

Funny how you two didn't report my two negative PS3 articles today!

You two dislike me for reasons that you yourselves are guilty of which is more pathetic than what you accuse me of.

I'm ready for all your disagrees, replies, and excuses now.

I am sick of reading crap POS3 stories in my 360 RSS Feed from N4G.

I'll probably unsubscribe from all the N4G feeds if this carries on, leaving the site with far fewer hits overall. If they can't sort out the twats that like to post crap like this in multiple wrong sections, then I won't be coming back to read the valid stories.

drtysouf = gimp.

There are categories for a reason.

I, like the majority of people on the planet, have no interest in $ONYs last ever movie player, I mean games machine. Thus I subscribe to RSS feeds for things I am intesrested in and don't have to read about things that I am not interested in.

That is where the frustration comes from, when I end up reading 2 bob stories about the pile of grill anyway..

Do you see now ? Or do you just enjoy making chilidish noises ?

Uhh...Don't read it? Funny you accuse someone else of making childish noises. When you're the one screaming and crying like a little girl.

Just don't read it. It's that simple.

"...not only does the PS3 boast one of the most impressive lists of games on the market (certainly more than can be found on the Wii)"

I know that a lot of people disagree with me, but I'm not sure this is a valid statement... The PS3 doesn't really have that defining epic game to compete with MP3 or Zelda. I think critical scores reflect that.

I don't mean to start a flame war, I don't. But all of the anti-Wii media that has sprouted up recently has really upset me. Everyone seems to be furious at Nintendo for being so successful, and when people cut at eachother's throats over what game/game console is better, it makes me sick to be a gamer at all.

If you look for the number one electronic list in
xbug 150 would be number one.

no other electronic is braking as much as the x360 LMAO even the POS ipods look ok next to that thing.

Cartman313 : "Uhh...Don't read it? Funny you accuse someone else of making childish noises. When you're the one screaming and crying like a little girl. Just don't read it. It's that simple"

Getting called a little girl by someone that calls themselves Cartman. Love it. If you had the ability to read my post properly, a post which contained no caps or crying, just a well presented and justified point, then you'd understand. So, just for you little man, I will repeat why I can't just not read it -

"Thus I subscribe to RSS feeds for things I am intesrested in and don't have to read about things that I am not interested in"

RSS Feeds - Google it. Basically if someone puts a POS3 story in the 360 section it will come up on my RSS Feed. As I have no interest in $ONY's failing 2 speed BluRay Trojan Horse, I do not subscribe to any POS3 RSS Feeds. Yet still I end up with 4 stories not related to 360 but to $ONY's slow and noisy death - and that was yesterday alone. Comprende now ? Or would you like it in cartoon language ? LOL
