The media's tune sure has changed within the last few months from those "Blu-ray is not necessary" articles.

It's the PS2 scenario all over again

Yeah now it's all good.

A ton of users here on NG4 (including myself) has been saying this for the last year now. Of course it was always followed by a comment on (No games and DVD being a superior format).

It was called going with the crowd, but now the crowd is shifting to PRO BD.

The big story in computer games this year was HOW TO BLOW A HUGE LEAD, by Sony. Its PlayStation 2 was the champ in the last round of the console wars. This time Sony bet on a chip called the Cell and a disc format called Blu-ray. They're probably awesome, but how would anybody know? The PS3 is hideously expensive--it goes for up to $600--and Sony manufactured only a piddling few hundred thousand for the U.S., fewer for Japan. Plus it's hard to write games for; the launch titles were lame. You know you're in trouble when you get beat by something called a Wii...." --

Pretty wild, eh..? Playstion 2 part deux...? lol

If you own a HDTV, then the PS3 is really a must have accessory.

Games, HD media, internet, HDD, playTV, etc etc, the competition simply cant compete....

MikeGdaGod4002d ago

now i want one for every hdtv in my house. i'm just waiting for another price drop and/or different colors.


oh, but wait. 360 does all that and more. you were saying? don't be a fanboy. to claim 360 is not "hd" compatible is just ridiculous.

grilledgorlupa84001d ago

and more? the 360 can play Blu-ray movies???


No need. It has a proper downloadable service. Downloads are the future. And like I already said, who needs Blew-ray when you can stream a torrent instead?

grilledgorlupa84001d ago

ok you tell yourself that as Blu-ray players become cheaper and cheaper combined with HD-TVs becoming cheaper and cheaper. I cant tell the future but I do think your underestimating how hot HD technology is right now.

I'm a big fan of my PS3. It provides me with more entertainment than my 360 and Wii combined. Between playing my favorite PSone and PS2 games, Blu-Ray movies, and the PS3 games I've enjoyed so far (I've actually enjoyed a lot more 360 games than PS3 games so far, but Uncharted, Warhawk, Eye of Judgment, Ratchet & Clank, and Resistance have all been awesome fun for me)... I use my PS3 a whole lot.

King20084002d ago

Its a very sexy piece of equipment that even non gamers wouldnt mind having on their entertainment shelf. The games are gonna start coming every month...cant wait for MLB 08: The Show
