Anytime I see a Blu-ray player selling for $400 or more, my mind always says, "So basically it's offering less movie features than a PS3 AND it can't play any games at all... and it cost more... ummm..."

So true, I got the ps3 and it does all this plus games, online, etc. I am happy with all the extras not on the basic blu ray player.

i really wouldn't mind a separated market, when people think Ps3 they think Media player, or blue-ray player when in fact its priority as a game machine was slandered. granted i do not see why they still charge 200+ for top of the line models. niche market i suppose.

This does do one thing the PS3 will not: Play Netflix movies. The PS3 is still a much better media center than this thing.

That's why I got the previous model at a nice price when Circuit City was going out of business.
