    Theres no way for me to prove it. I played a crapload of dvd's on it. I didnt use my other dvd player because it didnt have an optical cable output on it. Thats why i used the ps2. It still runs perfect today.

    Yeah you'd have to prove you've had a PS3 for 4 years first

    I played a few dvds on my PS2, but after learning and reading I quit. Not a few months later I had to co-workers that wanted me to replace the laser's in their PS2s. They said they watched a lot of movies on it. That is also why ps2 lasers are readily available. It's rare to see a gamecube laser fail, if it does its mostly attributed to leaving the console on overnight, definitely not due to playing movies

    Many XBOX lasers have failed too and most people I know that had their's fail played movies on them quite often. It's an unnecessary strain on the laser. There were few units with really good lasers though. Lots of v7 ps2's had excellent lasers. But generally the system's lasers were hit or miss.

    Also in regards to your last post, I know 3 people with PS3s, and for some reason 2 of the units wouldn't play any games, but would load blu-ray movies just fine.

Bigger hard drive doesn't even matter at all in the slightest. 20GB isn't very big at all, 60GB isn't much more. Maybe with a 120GB or more you could justify it, but not with the little space it does have. I've got over 1.2TB of storage across my 4 computers. My Wii has 8GB of storage provided by 2 4GB SD cards. Simply put, 20GB is their mainstream console and it's just not enough. 60GB is 3x as much but still not very much in the real world.

    Bigger games is a moot point, bigger games doesn't mean better games or better looking games. That's completely irrelevant to this discussion.

    Your car comparison stays true here. The PS3 is like a BMW, there is no reason to get it when you can get the Wii or the xbox360 that has more features, better gameplay, better games, better control and the like. Almost seems like you would be the type to waste money on a BMW vs a decent Chevrolet. You did buy the BMW of consoles after all.
    Please name a more powerful gaming console... I know you can get a more powerful computer, but the ps3 blows the 360 out of the water. The wii isnt even a comparison.

    How does the wii have more features? Because of the curson on a screen? I have way better control with the ps3 remote than anyone has with their laggy wii remote. cod3 is much better on the ps3 than the wii. The wii ruins gameplay on many games including fps. I would rather have played zelda with a classic remote than the wii remote. The 360 has better online features, but thats it. The system is at about its max right now. The ps3 is about on par and its using 25% of its processing power. Yeah they are almost comparable

    The ps3 is like a bmw. Its more money but has more features. However the only difference is that no other console has as many features or capabilities.

    my ps2 is fine. I never knew a movie would tear up a laser. If I did I probably wouldnt have used it, but it didnt hurt it anyways. Im not doubting you, im just giving you my experiences with it.

    The wii is more powerful due to the fact is has more features, better offerings, better games, a better control system. The Wii remote isn't laggy at all unless user error is involved. Read the manual, set it up right and you will have no problems. Consoles in general ruin FPS gameplay and controls. The Wii is the exception, with the closest to real control on a console you'll get in an FPS game. Call of Duty 3 may be the test title, but from what I've played it plays great, almost a PC like experience. Zelda with the wii remote was awesome, much better than the gamecube version with a regular controller.

    There is no question that the PS3 has more power than the xbox360 or wii in graphical capabilities, but thats all it has. It doesn't have games, features, gameplay, control and innovation.

    The xbox360 and the Wii have too many more features and capabilities than the ps3 does, thats why demand for the ps3 is so low. No one wants a system that doesn't do anything better than the xbox360 and wii and costs a hell of a lot more in the process. Xbox360 costs $300 brand new and you can add a HD-DVD player for $160-200. Still cheaper than the PS3, and HD-DVD looks better. It's a generic console pushed out at the last moment to try to compete.

    They were desperate, it shows. Better luck next time.

    Any time you use an optical laser you are subjecting it to stress. My guess is that the drive is geared towards gameplay, during a movie there is constant reading of the disc which is probably why more wear and tear occurs. Also probably why its hard to get GTA game backups to play right as they read continuously off of the discs. Blu-Ray's versatility is nice in that aspect, but thats the only thing it has going for it.

    You are so ignorant it's unbelievable, people are entitled to their opinions but my god, that's a joke of a statement. There is no lag with the remote whatsoever unless you've messed up your sensor bar, you will never find a better way to play First Person Shooters and if you don't like it, don't play it and sell your Wii. I'm sure you'd have never thought of the idea for a wireless remote and if you can't see that it's something special and more involving, you're stupid as well as ignorant.

    And I've never played a PS3, they aren't released here, I'm definately considering buying one but at the moment, I'm happy with my Wii, with a lack of attempts to use the Wii's graphic engine properly with the present available games my only concern.

    its absolutely pointless to say anything to him. he is borderline retarded i think. he wont understand until his junk stops working. it is amazing how EVERY SINGLE PS2 I EVER SAW PLAY DVDS stopped working, but his is a champ. he must have lottery like luck with sony i guess. maybe that is why he loves them so much and cant even admit they made huge mistakes. regardless, talking to him, or trying to reason with him, is like trying to reason with an intelligent toaster. youd probably have better luck with the toaster.

    Alot of poeple have had problems with the wii. Im glad your only 5 friends havent had problems. Thats 5 out of 3 million? Big deal. Do you in fact know more people who have had problems with the ps3 than the wii? Wheres your proof? Im sure you will try and say from reading message boards. How many owners are actually on message boards? I actually see quite a few people have problems on message boards with the wii. About the same as the ps3. Another funny part is alot of problems are getting fixed with firmware updates on the ps3. Including the ps2 game problem

    I got my wii before the ps3 and it had those problems before. Theres nothing else in my house thats bluetooth. Not my laptop and bluetooth on my phones are shut off. Nice try at a stupid point
    are you? well im not the only one you annoy, i assure you this. and if i grew up and was an annoying a**hole like yourself, i wouldnt be glad about it. i start threads to show the problems, so that idiots like you, who think the ps3 isnt garbage will have something to look at. and no you dont start threads bashing the wii, you just bash it on everyone elses threads.
    and for the last time, i dont need to prove that the ps3 is a piece dude. you need to prove otherwise. EVERYONE KNOWS THIS. except you. i swear to god it is almost like you are getting paid to promote them. ive never seen anything or anyone so pathetic in my life. i can only imagine how useless you are in the real world. im still waiting on your computer to vaporize so that i wont have to read any more of your bad grammar and ignorance.
    i really love the internet, i do, but sometimes it is just a pain in the ass, because all it does it open the doors for me to come across more ignorance such as you grace us with every time you touch the keyboard. go dig up some common sense somewhere please. and when you find it, please gorge on it like you would food in starvation.

    ps-- sorry about the double post. didnt realize i did it.

    PS3 update today fixed alot of issues. My PS3 works perfectly. Now how many of you Wii gamers have had your system not read the disc? And dont say none because every single Wii has this problem. Your game will be in the drive but the Wii wont see it. Wii has problems too. Bitches!
