i like the fact my ps3 plays cds, thats one less electronics item i can keep from owning to keep the clutter down. i like the fact the ps3 is such a home entertainment system. nothing like listening to the living legends on surround sound.
i also love when people create threads just to hear themselves talk

What about your bluray/sony fanboyism? "ZOMG THE PS3 IS PERFECT ALL MUST BUY PS3'S AND MAKE LOVE THEM!!!"... Dude, calm the hell down, what is the matter with you? Why must everyone want a PS3? You know what, when I decided to buy into bluray I did so with a BD-P1400 last december and I did so because it was on sale, and I don't regret my choice. My player does what I wanted it too, I've been enjoying DTS-HD/MA since I bought a receiver capable of handling lossless audio, and the speed is generally acceptable. For games? My priority was x-box as far as high def consoles because of the Halo series, I'd like a PS3 for gaming eventually, but not until I can afford on with BC...

Valid reasons why folks might not want a PS3:
1) Gaming is already provided by the Wii and/or 360 and there is simply not enough time in the day or interest in a third console to add it to the pile.
2) The remaining few limitations (lack of IR, no analog outs and the lack of REON or similar for upconversion).
3) Dual format fans (not format whores like yourself) who want to save on HT space real estate and have the convenient playback of BOTH high def formats in a single player.
4) Aesthetics as already mentioned elsewhere.
Just come off your fucking high horse already, chief.

Well I for one never got a PS2 as a DVD player. So why would I do the same for PS3? I've had several bad experiences with Bluetooth issues so I don't really want to buy a separate remote either.Display: Samsung 52" LNT5271F LCD 1080/24p 120Hz

The comparison of the PS3, a blue ray player which can also play games, to a DVD player which also plays CDs is dishonest and misleading.
The videogame part of the PS3 is the main part, which chews up most of the power and the cost of production.
To characterize the PS3 as an innocent blueray player.... which also plays games. What a load of nonsense. How many other standalone Blueray players:
"cost five times as much to run as an average-sized refrigerator."
