U dont need a high definition television to play ps3 on, u could play it just fine on a piece of crap with bunny ears. High def tv's just make the images sharper, thus...somewhat better graphics. Ps3 also has web browsing, online downloadable games, 7 player, blue tooh, blu ray, and some other stuff. Anyways ill stop talking so much about the ps3. Wii comes out this saturday are u guys excited?
