Even if you wanted too we don't have much choice. The 9 series is going backwards. ::

heh, the PS3 has everything I need for now. It looks awesome on my 42" LCD and now that DTS-HD MA is supported with the next update I think I am gonna go shopping for a receiver and good speakers.

heck it even has a nvidia gpu so its all good

All it needs now is The Witcher and Wolf Quest

They could do a console the Witcher fairly easily with a few tweaks.

I guess this thread is as good as either one to ask. You need to have HDMI audio for DTS-HD correct?

Probably do. ::

I use Optical myself. I really need to invest in a decent receiver and some speakers.

Yup... this news owns... I still love how certain people talked trash about the PS3 as a Blu-Ray player... guess what, it was the best, and it just keeps getting better. Guess those people just hate that their terrible format lost out.

Definitely can't wait to rewatch Kingdom of Heaven, Live Free or Die Hard, and X-Men 3 when this update hits.

I admit I hate that HD DVD lost out when it was actually the better product. Ahh well someday when the blu ray players are in better shape I'll buy one.
I haven't been around in a while but where is Evil Chris? Does he still come here?
