My original intent was for the Blu-ray player. I also have some games now but I watch movies on it way more.

Originally to play games but when I saw a BD, I've become a huge BD movie buyer.

Games.

never knew what blu ray was until I bought Silent Hill.

I still have a good amount of ps3 games.. I love my 60gb launch ps3

Ive been buying more games on ps3 than 360 recently.. Bought Simpsons on the ps3 and it looks amazing!

I was gonna get Jericho.. but the lure of the Collectors edition for 360 threw me sadly.

I suppose I mainly got it originally for games, thinking it would get a lot of exclusives. When that turns out not to be the case, I turn to Blu-ray. Now, all of my gaming is done on the 360. I've played 2 games on PS3: Resistance (which I found incredibly mediocre) and Lair (Let's not even talk about it), so it's only being used for Blu-ray (which I like more than HD DVD).

My gaming life: 360 dominates.
HD movie life: Blu-ray all the way.

I got it for the Blu-Ray since we got a Panny PZ-700u. Can't play games on it since my kids will then take it over. Just got Spiderman Trilogy and loved it.

OK this is not exactly fair but it is interesting. I bought my PS2 back in the day to play Movies as well. I mean the PS3 for me is both games and Movies it covers all my HD needs. However I do have a 360 and a HD DVD player.

I bought a PS3 for the total package not one feature.

This goes for me too. I mainly bought the PS3 for the blu-ray and, at the time, it was the cheapest blu ray player on the market. I bought a stand alone blu-ray player so I could just game on my PS3. But...I dont play games that much anymore. I have 13 and of those 13...3 were for me. The rest are for my kids. But I clear them out of the room when I need to play a blu movie that my Samsung could not play well ( F.F. ROTSS, Day After Tomomrow, 28 Weeks Later, Spiderman 3) I love my PS3. I am getting a couple of games soon ( Time Crisis 4, COD 4, Ratchet and Clank).

What if I use it evenly for both? PS3 having Blu-ray built in was a huge deal for me, wanting HD media and a PS3 at the same time.
