    Stand Alone Blue-Ray or Playstation3

    I have reached the conclusion that a Playstion3 is superior to a stand alone Blu-Ray player since it can be used as a media center as well as play Blu-Ray discs and has equal picture quality. The recent anouncement that Sony is ready to download movies to Playstation3 via the internet is the...
