The reason why the PS3 is the best and most complete console out is because of it wide array of application. It's basically a mini-computer if you examine all of it's features. I say this for one because this is the only system that helps to find cures for different illnesses by using the folding@home program. This is the same science that is being conducted by scientists in labs to help cure diseases such as cancers, ahlzheimers, muscular dystrophy and other diseases as well. Just this program alone shows the power of the console.
Then you have the fact that it plays games from pc emulations to blu-ray supported discs such as Metal Gear Solid 4. As far as I know this is also the only console to play games (even though its not many) in 1080p resolution although the full capability has yet to be reached since its display only runs at 60 fps. Only a PC or laptop can have programs such as Linux or Xubuntu where you can run emulators to play games such as duke nukem or other games of this sort. With these programs you can also even type documents and since the PS3 is printer enabled then you can even print the documents right from the console. Using these programs you can also have many other applications of a computer and run the internet even better than it works on the PS3 OS.I t's also the best and most complete console because you can use almost any accessories with it. I'm talking about almost any bluetooth mic, wireless-USB keyboard/mice, and it also supports many pc and digital cameras as well. The fact that you can read media wireless as I do from my laptop also adds value to the system.
The last feature that I will mention (though I know it's probably more) is the fact that it's a blu-ray movie player. This alone sets it in a different field than any other console for the fact that the cheapest one of these can be found is around $200 dollars. The Sony company came up with all the newest features and managed to fit them all into one console and this is why the PS3 will be long lived.
I'm not a fanboy or anything but I am a person who's a fan of great and the most innovative technology. With all of the things that I mentioned above; this console is by far the most complete and advanced console out at the moment which makes it the best. The bottom line is that even though there are occasional problems here and there many people make posts complaining about; this system is by far the most advanced and reliable system to any media/game/pc lover. This is why THE PS3 IS THE BEST/MOST COMPLETE CONSOLE OUT!!! Untill another console can duplicate all of the technology thats in this system I believe this console will remain the best for many years to come. If I left anything out please feel free to throw things in and if I happened to mistate any of the features then also feel free to correct me.
