Default BDP-S300 or PS3 ???

I've seen a few threads on the BDP-S300 but i'd specifcally like to ask is there any reason to buy the BDP-S300 since the PS3 is only $100 more and allows the playing of ps3 games (if any come out that i actually want to play) ? Seen some people mention ps3 noise.. but also seeing ps3 owners saying they're thinking about buying the BDP-S300 on top of the ps3 confuses me a bit.

Sonystyle.com has free shipping promotion for the next 3 days + basically $100 off first purchase if you apply for the sonystyle credit card.

So BDP-S300 at $399 + tax + 5 free movies looks really appealing to me.

Just not sure if i want to opt for spending $100 more and get the ps3...

don't believe it has 256 MB of local storage which is the minimum requirement for 1.1.

Hmm.. me thinks the $100 more ps3 is worth it then.

Why do i keep seeing ps3 owners thinking about buying this standalone then?

idk... seems weird that they would buy it unless they want a second BD player. also, Profile 1.1 is really for people interested in PiP.
