All of your 10 games will fit on one disc. You wont have to change the disc to play any of the quality titles you have on ps3.

Envy is a beautiful thing when you look at it from the other side.

This is a positive PS3 news. Why do you waste your time.

I think its a great way to back up a harddrive, now to wait till the blu-ray burners are at a lower price.

Two words... 2160p video... :-)

And with the PS3 supporting HDMI 1.3, that is completely possible (@ 30fps)...

So 9 years from now, your PS3 will still be viable as a Blu-Ray player on Quad-HD displays... ;-)
