It's been a year and a half since Sony launched the PS3 with lots of hype, only to have Nintendo and its scrappy Wii system steal most of the thunder with its "casual" games and motion-control system. Even Microsoft had a better year with high-profile games like Halo 3 getting people excited about the Xbox 360.

We've had a chance to re-look at the PS3, and now feel that while Sony might not be king of the hill just yet, they're at least back on the mountain ready to take on the other two contenders. Here are five reasons we think you should take another look at the PS3 if you're a home gaming console fan. While others are scrambling to still find Nintendo Wii systems for Father's Day, you can march in and grab a PS3 right off the shelf and know that you may have just gotten a better gift.
