[QUOTE=mrtoddy;2527758]Does anyone know how good the blu ray player that come with the new play station 3 is and is it differant than the previous version?[/QUOTE]
As Kerry says nothing has changed in relation to the Blu-ray hardware however the loading times for the new PS3 slim are slightly longer and apparently the drive is slightly noisier.
The playback quality of standalone equipment has improved dramatically though to the point where it has now overtaken the PS3.
So if you’re looking for ultimate quality, standalone hardware is IMO now the way to go.
If you want to play games though and watch a few Blu-rays then the latest version of the PS3 is still a very good solution.
