Can anyone tell me why I shouldn't buy a Sony PS3 to play BluRay movies, especially when the price for a standalone player is about the same or in many cases more?
See if you can get a 120Hz TV. Go look at one at best buy or something. It is freaking AMAZING, but you have to see it to know what it's like.
3:2 pulldown has bugged the crap out of me ever since I started playing PC games at smooth framerates. I didn't even know what it was or had a name for it until the first time I looked at a 120Hz TV and did some research. It's made me something of a junior videophile!The difference IS apparent
The 120Hz removes a lot of blurring. Now, in many scenes, I think it makes it look too "clean" but some people prefer that.
I just threw a blu-ray HD=DVD reader in my PC. Threw anydvd-hd at that and have powerDVD ultra and windvd sitting on top of that
Works a dream, is a media centre, can have linux, can be a DVR, Plays games..... need I go on? Lots cheaper than a PS3
i think you'll find he means adding the drive to an existing system is cheaper than getting a £450/500 ps3, which is true, bluray drives and powerdvd would set you back less than a ps3 (currently)
