The sacrificial lamb of Blu-ray.

If blu-ray wins at the expense of sacrifising the playstation brand, it will be great for Sony. They will make lots of money anyways. but, it will be bad for their PS fanbase. ohhh..well.. they have to look for their shareholders first. It's business.

Good job sony your goal to make Blu-ray a success will be achieved. The trojan horse that is ps3 has done it`s job.

Can't hear that "trojan horse"-BS anymore!
A little lesson:
What is a trojan horse?
In history it was a trick that the greeks used to conquer troja.
Nowadays it's also known as maleware that allows to infiltrate your system with code that is destructive and/or able to spy on passwords etc.
In both cases it's definetly something you DON'T want!

So how does this apply to the PS3?? When I buy a PS3, I KNOW I'm getting Blu-Ray! And when I'm willing to pay the price for a PS3 it doesn't matter if I want Blu-Ray or not. IF I want it - great! You get a player for a bargain-price! If not - who cares? You get it as a bonus!
