Ars Technica hates the PS3 too; Dtoid ready to take failed console off haters' hands

0

*First a public announcement* We'd like to post this message now for all the PlayStation 3 owners that are already over and done with, with the console: Please send us your disappointment since you hate it so much. We'll be more than happy to take it off your hands since it sucks so hard for you. *Announcement over*

OK, moving along. It seems that Ars Technica is joining the PS3-hate parade lately with their lengthy (and I mean lengthy) review of Sony's mean machine. Here's their conclusion wrapped nicely in bullet points:

The Good:

  • The hardware looks great, and runs nearly silently and very cool
  • Wireless controller is light and feels great
  • Great-looking Blu-ray movie playback
  • Price is low for a Bluy-ray player
  • A lot of multimedia options
  • Solid backwards compatibility

The Bad:

  • Terrible online store
  • Slow, unintuitive browser
  • No background downloading
  • Games continue to play even if you eject the disc; you have to manually restart the UI via the controller
  • Messy UI
  • HD scaler doesn't work right
  • Price is high for a video game console
  • No rumble, controller loses sync with system sometimes; little game support for motion-sensing features
  • Uninspired launch lineup

The Ugly:

  • Knowing that no one is actually playing this thing, every system is waiting in a box somewhere for the eBay profit
Thoughts? Agree, disagree? Would you like to unload your PS3 on us?
