PS3 for Blue-ray DVD February 26, 2008

Posted by Fast Follower in Blue-ray, Playstation 3, PS3.

I’m finishing off a part of my home that will contain a video-audio entertainment area (a projector for video and large screen viewing, an HD Directv DVR, a receiver for handling all of the video and audio processing, etc).  My initial choice for a DVD player was to purchase a Blue-ray DVD (now that HD DVD is dead or dying).  Today, I decided to forgo a normal Blue-ray player and get Playstation 3 instead.  It plays Blue-ray DVDs (and regular DVDs) along with being a great gaming machine.  Am I missing something here?  Doesn’t this seem like a good choice?  I’m sure PTIers will let me know.

Playstation 2 Slim vs Original Playstation 2 July 5, 2006

Posted by Tell it like it TI is! in Playstation, PS2, PS3.

My 11 year-old son and I are having a major debate regarding the differences in the Playstation2 Slim and the Playstation2! My son continues to tell me that there are several upgrades, and wants to purchase a PS2 slim! The only difference besides being slimmer) that I can come up with is that there is an ethernet connection for online gaming, which he is not really into. I have been to several websites and can’t find direct comparisons. Is this just a waste of money, or are there some real differences. What about the PS3?? Wouldn’t this be a better decision? Help!
