Sure... I believe you completely.

Oh and do you always watch movies muted, while sitting 1 inch from the console?

Its not terrible at all. And if audio and even extras are not that important to you why would you then look down on the PS3 has a player? Regardless its a great player, does other stuff and it plays games too.

is it possible to provide updates to the PS3 for BD playback? ie, upgrades from v1.1 to v2.0?

if that's possible, then that's really the only reason i can see to purchase the PS3 for BD playback.

And I am a movie fan, I actually care about the PQ and AQ of a movie, not how I can clutter up my screen with the director and fluffer for some gay movies.
going nuts? what? when?

where did i say BD is evil? i said it's inferior. that's a fact. furthermore, you are a "movie fan" eh? sounds like you just blow your load over BD capacity and ignore the content.

im pretty sure you login to nvnews, click on links, then just substitute your own content without actually reading the threads.

Well since the PS3 started as 1.0, and is now a 1.1 player (which remember, is NEVER COMING OUT BECAUSE IT IS VAPORWARE!@#), I would say it will go to 2.0.

My post you are referring to was in response to evilchris.

And yes, I am a movie fan... the format with the most movies with the best available audio (read: Lossless) is the one I am going to be a fan of. I don't have to be able to buy a transformers shirt through my disc.

lol, if you were a lossless fan you wouldn't run a PS3. Are you a fan of PQ at all? BD uses a crapton of MPEG2, which absolutely sucks ass.

Hunt did you know that if weren't for Microsoft and HD DVD the BDA would have never added support for any other codec than MPEG2? Sony will tell you just that.

PS3 will have BDLive ( 2.0 ). DTS-MA, no one knows, Sony is too arrogant to answer the pleas of its customers.

The biggest issue with PS3 is the soft picture. Once you've seen a standalone versus a PS3 in PQ, you won't use the PS3 anymore. Same is true with the 360 addon.

I never used my ps2 for dvd playback, the same goes for my ps3 and my 360, I'm gonna wait until there is a clear and decisive winner
