These are Pioneer blu-ray players and have more circuitry than those Sony machines selling for 139.99. Only the Sony BDPS770 can be compared to these Pioneer machines.

How do these compare to a PS3?

Pretty much any stand alone Bluray is better than a PS3!
PS3s are GAME consoles not Media Players. Unless you are into hacking a PS3 and intimate with programing all they do is play.

My 6month old standalone Bluray player is terribly slow to start, and to load discs , compared to my 2yr old PS3 … and doesn’t decode DTS-HD MA / Dolby HD (to output via HDMI to my old 7.1 Surround Sound System) … whereas the PS3 does decode High Deffinition Audio, and boots & loads quicker as well.

Furthermore, I have friends that have bought expensive Bluray players in the last year where the PS3 slaughters them all in performance.
Admittedly the PS3 is a “gaming” machine which chews upto 200W of power, vs a BD player which chews up 10-30W of power. However, I use the PS3 to drive my home cinema, and also play my library of DVD/BD rips via an UPNP media server, running on a low power server pc - something most bluray players still cannot do, despite the network connection.

I’ll dismiss your comment for now.

The questions stands … how does this particular player compare to a PS3 in playback & capabilities?

I’ve got a Sony BDPS770 and the video quality is better than the PS3. It also has Wireless N which I don’t believe the PS3 has. Super fast boot times - watch the video here to compare the mid-range BDPS570 model to the PS3 boot time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbV8vf7nuMA
These new Pioneer models are going to have similar advantages over a PS3 when it comes to blu-ray playback.
Having said that, the PS3 video quality is still very good but only on par with a current entry level standalone Sony blu-ray player.
