PS3 Wins Award For High Definition Design Flair

Sony HD technological innovation has been recognised by the European Imaging and Sound
Association (EISA) with the PS3 winning the European Media Centre category.

"Sony's PS3 is a wonderful example of a powerful media centre, thanks to its inclusion of an audio-video-photo player as well as a web browser to navigate, download, play and chat on the Internet," the judging panel said. "In addition there's a 60GB hard disk for content storage, plus Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and four USB interfaces allowing connection of external hard-disk storage and USB accessories such as keyboards.

"However, the most important function of the PS3 is the built-in Blu-ray disc player, which also reads DVD, CD and Super Audio CD, as well as embracing the new surround sound formats. Top-notch 1080/24p resolution is available from Bluray Discs via a HDMI Ver.1.3 interface with x.v.Color; better still, the PS3 up-converts any DVD movie to 1080p resolution and it accommodates users who prefer to use a traditional remote control - one's available as an option. Last but not least, PS3 is of course a very advanced game console and a worthy heir to the grand PlayStation heritage."

Ok, Seriously that is one bad ass movie player. Imagine if this would have just been a BD Player and had nothing to do with the PS brand. This would be a sick Blu-Ray player on it's own. Now I just gotta convince the wife to let me get the Aquos $2500 TV. Then I can get one of these sweeties.

I have the 46' Sharp Aquos and it is absolutely gorgeous! I spent well over $2,000 but I have yet to question my investment. My livingroom almost looks like some sort of shrine now with my beautiful Aquos in the center. That's how livingrooms are supposed to be right?

Dude seriously I saw the 62" 1080p Aquos at Costco playing clips in 1080p from Blu-Ray movies. Let's just say I am glad I didn't have my credit card on me, because that beautiful bastard had me in some kind of Sharp brand fanboy hypnosis. I just wanna go back and watch it. I would get a PS3 to watch Blu Ray if I had a TV that nice.

My 30" 1080i CRT HDTV, Just doesn't justify a HD player yet my upconverting player looks good enough not to start my collection over yet. But that Sharp Aquos is something special.

EZCheez3863d ago

Holy sh!t. I think I would just faint right in front of it.

My wife makes fun of me for they way I religously clean my TV and PS3. I can't help it. They just look so damn good!
