295w ago - PS3 recently made the cut as one of the top five electronic entertainment products of 2007. The list, compiled by Askmen.com, is described as "rare gadgets whose bang actually matches the hard-earned bucks they cost."
While PlayStation 3 made the fab five, Xbox 360 and Wii did not.
"Sure, it was released near the back end of 2006 and it's currently in third place in the console market, but when you re-envision as a complete home-entertainment center and factor in it's recent price drop, the PS3 becomes a grade-A purchase," the website raved.
"Specifically, not only does it boast one of the most impressive lists of games on the market (certainly more than can be found on the Wii), but it also supports titles from the first two PlayStation consoles, plays now-coveted Blu-ray discs as well as DVDs and CDs, has a 60GB hard drive, built-in Wi-Fi, supports wireless controllers, and pumps out pictures at 1080p. Clearly, if your looking to knock out your gaming needs, movie needs and CD needs in one short purchase, the PlayStation 3 in the name of your game."
The other four items to be honored were the Samsung LN-T4665F (LCD set), Toshiba HD-A2 HD-DVD player, Onkyo OTX-SR605 AV receiver, and the Mitsubishi WD-65831 (another HDTV).
