well. blu-ray was one of the main reasons it was produced in the first place; as an alternative to other next generation video players. It just wasnt marketed well enough for that purpose.
Sony is fairly stupid when it comes to movie stuff. I mean, they were the ones responsible for the failure that is Beta-Max.
Ps3 is lackluster, poor game quality and choice, overpriced. Xbox360 has always been my choice for the next gen gaming consoles, but now that HD is gone... i dunno. If Ps3 steps up their games, and if home ever freaking came out I may splurge.
I just wish the wii could play movies.
