I have to be honest. I was skeptical about the PS3 on its early stages. Mostly because of the price. I was always a fan since the PSOne and PS2. After all these years I am proud to say that I own a PS3 (slim) and no doubts that it have to be one of the best gaming console of this decade. I whish all electronics could easily be update (with new tech) at not xtra-charge via firmware. My 2 cents.

I have to agree with it being the best gaming console of the decade. When he points out the ease of upgrading it is something I can attest to. I bought a 40gig a while back and swapped out the hard drive for a 300gig. Very easy. Can't wait for the awesome updates in the future.

Even though I've read the HD Advisor updates on all that is 3D, I'm still confused. Thought for dual 1080p images you needed HDMI 1.4? Different than this "stereoscopic", I assume. So my Panny BD-50 ought to be able to do 3D through a firmware upgrade as well then. Assuming 2x1080i.

It won't be true 1080p as for the PS3 to handle it it will have to send it over 1080i; which I'm unprepared for to watch bbblus that way.

OK my Hi Def brothers and sisters, as previously stated by other posters don't you have to have HDMI 1.4 to run 1080p for 3D? Otherwise the 1.3 will only process 1080i. And if that is the case would you need to purchase a player with HDMI 1.4 compatabilty or could that be rectified though updates?

Josh did a great job a couple of weeks ago in his HD advisior about 3D, but I'm still damn confused.

Maybe we'll see a 1.4 hardware revision...

I wish there was someway they could keep up with the frigging HDMI re-revisions. They are less stable that the blu ray drafts...

Remember kiddies... most of you don't even see 1080p from where your sitting.


1080p Matters... Sometimes


Even if it is 2x720p most of you will still be fine.

Still want 2x1080p? Buy new hardware, Sony didn't promise ANYTHING when you bought it. Stop complaining.

Remember, according the blu-ray disc association, the 3d movie spec is 1080p24 x 2..... which is less bandwidth than 1080p60 x 1, which HDMI 1.3 and devices like the PS3 can already handle fine.
