I am thinking of buying a Sony PS3 (60GB version) to play Blu ray movies on my HD ready TV. It is a bit more expensive here in the UK than some of the standalone Blu ray players, but it seems to have much more features than any standalone player i have seen. Like Wireless and Wired Networking, Internet browsing, media streaming, memory card slots for digital camera cards, bluetooth, USB and of course it can play games.
The HD picture quality on blu ray movies, from what i seen in the shop looked as good as any of the standalone players. The guy in the shop also told me the PS3 was already BD profile 2 and can be updated easily for any future BD profiles. So is the PS3 a good or even the best option at the moment for HD blu ray movie playback?
