PS3: more "home entertainment" than gaming system?

Apparently many still think so including Heavy Rain maker – David Cage. I am rather taken by this as I bought my PS3 purely with gaming as the main purpose, secondly for it’s Blu-Ray abilities. The Playstation 3 is a stunning piece of kit when it comes to media too, with the ability to tweak setting till your heart desires. But as a core gamer, it still remains primarily a gaming device… in my home at least.

"The games are just the start," hails Sony. So it's true, more home entertainment than anything.

goldensfree3418d ago (Edited 3418d ago )

b/r the best online gaming network on a console for free n so much more

dont mean you gotta hate

the quotes taken a bit out of context 2 imo he certainly never said the ps3 was just a b/r player...

besides if you've played kz2 like you say youd know a game can b a cinematic experience rivalling that of any movie.

Bereaver3418d ago

The problem with the question is, What is home entertainment? Doesn't anything that entertains you at home mean home entertainment? lol

They made everything possible and soon we will see MKV support, NTFS , Emulators and Free [email protected] too.... oh we already got that Feature lol.

Honestly, my PS3 plays move movies than games, but I still consider it a game system. My collection of awesome titles (Uncharted 2, inFamous, KillZone 2, Little Big Planet, ModNation Racers, etc.) reinforce that fact. There are few movies that can give me as much enjoyment as these games, and that's saying a lot for Sony and the devs that power them.

The PS3 may seem expensive at first but with so many features like Blu-Ray,Internet Browser,3D movies, video downloads, Awesome games and more it's actually a steal Thus the phrase: It only does everything:)

stevenhiggster3418d ago

It's not even expensive anymore anyway! And like you say it is a steal for what you get for your money, even more so now.

shoddy3418d ago

that's why ps3 worth your money.

-Ikon-3418d ago

Dramscus3418d ago

? as if they are mutually exclusive...i'd say OVER ALL its a home entertainment system, but its equally a GAMING system.

thats like asking "is a computer more a calculator or a word processor?!!??!?!?!? - ITS BOTH"

chazjamie3418d ago (Edited 3418d ago )

re: Movements comment:
Hmm, fair enough. But I am not sure I would have gone with that marketing/pr strategy. I would try and push it on the gaming side way more than the rest.

goldensfree3418d ago (Edited 3418d ago )

its basically an interactive movie so it makes sense they stress the cinimatic aspects so saying the ps3's formidable entertainment is an asset to his game when asked in the context of this interview is to b expected. Taking it n turning it into this "PS3: more "home entertainment" than gaming system?" is just shody journalism.

Sony themselves are pushing games like mad XD

unless your seeing b/r sony ads where your at id say its been all about the games for the past couple year at least.

zaz123418d ago

I care more about games

IRetrouk3418d ago

its got the best GAMES this gen, everything else is a bonus.

M4ndat0ry_1nstall3418d ago (Edited 3418d ago )

I'm not sure, this picture might help answer that question though.

Meisadragon3418d ago

check the last two goty games in gamespot 2008 and 2009 :)

Omega43418d ago

Lol, yep that pretty much says it all.

"It also plays games".

IRetrouk3418d ago (Edited 3418d ago )

yep it plays games like the xbox, and then does plenty of things that xbox dosnt omega,

Information Minister3418d ago

There are no Kinect articles on the PS3 channel. Go away troll.

Blitzed3418d ago

I saw a similar ad for the 360:

Instead of 'Sony' it of course said 'MS', instead of 'Blu ray' it said 'Halo', and instead of 'games' it said 'Gears'!

Fanboyish, I know. I just wanted to make Omega4 and M4ndat0ry go and start cutting themselves again.

Meisadragon3418d ago

A troll thats what you are a TROLL.

dredgewalker3418d ago


It also plays games......yup I agree. Even if you say it's a blu-ray player first and console second why would it even bother me since I can watch hi-def movies and play AAA games. Anyway you spin those words it's still a win-win for me since I can do tons of things with my PS3. Oh look, I can make the PS3 look good without bashing the 360.

Bell Boy3418d ago (Edited 3418d ago )

Troll a system that has the best library of all time. Even when the fanboy websites try it's not so effective(kotaku, gametrailers etc.). That's an amazing feat when you have fanboy journalist yet still come out on top.

duplissi3418d ago

i wouldnt go as far as to say it has the best library of all time.
it definitely has some of the best games ive ever played but so do most systems.
