I\'ve said it before and I\'ll say it again.......a lot of the public truly feels that way.  I\'m not saying they\'re right, just saying that\'s how it is.



People who\'ve been to my place and saw the BR movies I was playing....folks like my parents and their old friends....can easily see how much better it is than their analog players. If they\'re playing the BR players on their basic red/white/yellow jack...then there\'s their problem.

Maybe if Blu Ray players start to ship with component or HDMI cable included with an attention note saying that to get the best picture quality on your hdtv, use either component or HDMI and select HD resolution or something.

I\'m a sales rep for Panasonic and customers say it to me all the time while I\'m in stores, that\'s while looking at it setup on a tv.  Obviously not everyone is this way but a lot of people are and some think it\'s better but not by that much.

It doesn\'t help that the PS3 is a fugly piece of hardware.

I know they\'ve been cutting the price since it came out, but $400 is still a lot for the average consumer to be shelling out - especially when their competitors have entry level models going for $200 and $250 respectively.

Sony needs to bite the bullet, the PS3 needs a redesign and a price cut ASAP.

Yeah..i agree that sony definitely needs a price cut on the ps3...and as i\'ve mentioned before, i\'m still baffled that the ps2 isn\'t at least $99.00 already. Why they\'re holdin\' out is beyond my reasoning....i understand that they are already takin\' a loss on the ps3, but $400.00 is still steep in any economy.
knowledge, wisdom & understanding..these are the basic fundamentals of life

if you can\'t amaze them with brilliance, baffle them with bullsh*t....

The problem with that is it puts the other stand alone Blu-Ray players at a loss. They\'re still at $250 (cheapest and that\'s only for a huge sale) or more.

If the PS3 dropped to $250, why would anyone buy a standalone player? PS3 are just as good, if not better than those.

The avg consumer doesn\'t know any better.  They see the PS3 as a gaming system that can play BR\'s on the site, and they\'d have to purchase a remote separately.

I love my PS3 but it\'s not for everyone.  Sony needs to focus resources on marketing, 2nd party games, and creating tools to make it easier for developers to code their nuts off.

The reason I haven\'t purchased a PS3 is because I already have a X360, and I can\'t justify paying $400 for another console when so many games are released for both platforms.
 
I would like to have a blu ray player, and yes I can certainly tell the difference, but it\'s not worth $400 to me. Maybe if stand-alone blu ray players ever drop to $100 - $150, I will buy one.
 
For me the price really is the problem. There\'s a statistical sample of 1.

Most people do not believe there is a big enough difference in HI-DEF and standard def. I know where I am from, most are perfectly content with DVDs and when I mention HI-DEF they simply shrug it off as a waste of money.

With that said, my PS3 is only a blu-ray player. I own one game (Rachet).

Who is this anamoly we call Jumpman? How is he able to do what he does and still survive after years of torment? It seems he feeds on the hate, growing with an intense passion to put unassuming members in their place.

Love Rachet, but LBP looks like complete shit. Not saying it is shit, but from what I\'ve saw, it looks like a shit infested snooze fest, therefor I never bothered to give it a shot.
Maybe I should try it.

im not really into platformers (last one i played regularly was the first crash bandicoot) and im enjoying it. would definitly get a lot more out of it if i were creative though. i dont even have the gumption to make a costume let alone make a level

but i got it for 40 bucks, so it was definitly worth that price. 60 bucks on the other hand...probably not so much

if you\'re not going to play online/with other people or are creative, id wait for a discount (amazon\'s had it for 40 bucks a couple times)

My library isn\'t large but MGS4 was a great game, and I love the MLB the show series.
