The PS3 is to gaming what Rome was to tough love. It continues to be the dominating beast of the last-gen consoles (perfect for last-gen people like me) and plenty of new games are still being made for it. If you waited this long to get one (because you’re a clever girl with an eye on falling prices and sweet bundles), then wait no longer!
-The Super Slim is 20% smaller and 25% lighter than the previous slim model (no, not that kind).
-Built-in blu-ray and dvd player.
-Wireless controllers, so no more wires! Except for charging (but you can buy a separate charging station for that).
-Media hub to stream your photos, videos, and music.
-Access to the PlayStation Store where you can buy, download, and play games without physical discs! You can also find classic PS1 and PS2 games and relive your childhood/adulthood, playing until 3am and punctuating the dissolution of your relationships with other humans.
-Entertainment apps like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, HBO Go, Crackle, and more! (Bye Felicia/Apple TV).
-Oh, and THE BEST VIDEO GAMES EVER.
