playing blue ray movies with the PS3 will just kill the systems lifespan... that and i heard it was a glitchy and cheap quality BR player to begin with. so like what many other said, what does the ps3 have over the other consoles? just a bit more juice. i say just a bit more cause it still has no comparison to the PC. i love my PC. i invest in it for one reason, amazing shooters, graphics, and badass rpg/adventure games that can use all the intended graphics, like Oblivion.
they coulda left out blue ray, put in a reg dvd player if they wanted, and sold it at the same price as xbox. but nooooooooooooooo were just sooo special. i wanted a ps3 pretty damn bad, WHY? one reason, Final Fantasy 7 remake or i heard possible FF7-2. thats all the system appeals to me for. thats just my opinion tho.
sony needs to hire new marketers and researchers. not to mention a council of console gamers making the main desicions.... it would probably be a better idea at this stage anyways. Right now its probably some 60 year old rich bitch moron wanting more money and shares thinking blue ray is the billion dollar ticket.
