I was under the impression that 1080p spec was 60 frames per second? Am I wrong? If I am not then why is Sony bringing out a high end 24fps player? Someone please help me out because I am not a video expert

hollywood movies are filmed at 24fps so when you have a player and a tv that does 24fps your watching it as the producer intended and at its best.

High end 24fps so what do they currently do then.24 is what is the norm for broadcast and DVD isn't it?If current HD players are lower,then that's not massively impressive surely.
