Is PS3 still the top Blu-ray Player?

The vaunted PlayStation 3 does just about everything you'd want in a consumer electronics product. It plays all discs (except HD DVDs), stores media, plays games, lets you surf the Web, eats babies, looks cool, and invites both envy and ridicule equally.

Its image quality seems to be roughly the same as the Pioneer's, and navigating via the regular controller wasn't too obnoxious once I got used to it. (A real remote is also available.) It switches between tracks the fastest of this bunch, and, along with the Pioneer, it's the only one that lets you advance and rewind frame by frame. (The others can only go forward per frame.) If it's already on, a disc will start nearly instantaneously. If you insert a disc with the unit off, it takes about 25 seconds to start the movie. The Samsung takes almost twice that time. This thing's computing power is really impressive...

This article is dated April, 2007, and is therefore outdated.

more specifically:

"..,the PS3...can't (or should I say, doesn't) upconvert DVDs. Perhaps this is something Sony will add in the future, as the power is certainly there."

...among other outdated facts.

How did this old article get trickled in???

EDIT:

Ahh, I see the Bubble Monsters are still lurking in full force!...So be it; you're well likely doing me a favour...fewer bubbles will probably help me stop procrastinating on this website and get on with the important stuff.

(Spineless, yellow-belly Neanderthals...perhaps one day you'll muster up enough guts to justify your head-scratching reasoning for disagreeing or eating bubbles...other than for feeding your bitter, fragile, insecure egos.)

I have to agree the article is out of date with some loose information.

Imagine if it's now the top Blu-ray player, constantly being updated (and with new features available after this article came out), what will happen when it's (hopefully, if Sony knows what they're doing) $400 by holiday season, and has tons of games and services exclusive for this "Blu-ray player/console"?

in my home it is. =]

cheers

Planet Earth on Blu-ray ROCKS!!

looks disgusting (and when I say disgusting I mean GOOD) on Discovery HD theatre in the first place, let alone Blu-Ray.

I've got a pretty good collection going so far, but my favorites are still X-MEN The Last Stand and Blackhawk Down. Terminator 2 is a real close runner up and will really never die. Cannot wait for HEAT on Blu-Ray if/when it comes. That gun battle will get the cops called to my house in uncompressed Hi-Def!lol

Cinematography is untouchable, trust me on this one Madden.

I too accept bubble generosity. :)

solidt123630d ago

Of course it is. It is upgradeable and comes with an excellent console called the PS3. plus wireless.

drtysouf213630d ago

Yes of course and it will continue to get better with updates
