HAHA!!! I actually agree! Criterion is great and theyve released some genuine marvels. But over 90% of their films are films I have 0% interest in.

I think you know what you can do with your comment.

Video games are one of the biggest wastes of time, money, resources, and human effort I have ever seen. I hate 'em. Wouldn't own a system if it were free.

It's not an argument, it's a statement of opinion.

I'm entitled to it.

And so are all of you, since you're all still reading this.

A silly opinion then, given it's based on assumptions that are incorrect about the PS3 and it's capabilities.

You're still ignoring the issue. There are plenty of people who happily use their PS3 as a blu-ray player only, and have never played a single game on it, as it's easily the best blu-ray player on the market for the price.

I call bullshit. Name ten from these boards. I've never heard of one single person who'd even consider doing what you say in your post. In this day and age, the PS3 sure as hell isn't "the best player on the market for the price". That's simply ludicrous.

Disliking gaming isn't what any of us are talking about. It's you believing that the PS3 is inadequate as a Blu-ray player. Your feelings on video games really has nothing to do with this.

Maybe Lemmy was raped a game cartridge?

My PS3 is pretty much only a BD player. A damn fine one as well. I have only MGS4 and 3 other games that I've yet to play...but it's a steady and very nice BD player for like huge ass percent of the time.

I have 0 PS3 games. I use the PS3 for Blu-ray only. I am an above average gamer as well. I play all games on the 360. I have about 50 games, and a few for the Wii also.

I bought the PS3 when it first came out, so it was the best blu-ray player at that time.

Overall, does it really matter...

I don't play a single game on my PS3, and I bought the 40GB when it was still 300 about three years ago. I absolutley love my PS3 and haven't had one disc issue on the hundereds of movies I've watched.

Maybe in 2008. Not in 2010. Especially with the way they handled 3D on it, lack of Analog, Lack of Region-freeness, Lack of being able to play some UK Imports (even though they are Region A discs), Power consumption, no Display...I can go on. Its still a great BD player, but not the best. Not in 2010. Its used to test discs mainly because it's the most common BD player around. You want to make sure your discs work with 60-80% of BD players in homes.

Re: Rumor: Grindhouse Coming to Bluray? (EDIT:Yup! Oct. 5th!)

Since I haven't needed it in the 4 years i've had mine, what would I need analog for?
Also what was wrong with the way the handled 3-d?

I know for sure there's a good chunk of clips from that moment that we never got in the deleted scenes.

I raise your "bullshit" to a "you're just plain wrong, but are too pig-headed to admit it".

I'll agree with "I may be wrong about the specs of the PS3, but I would still NEVER consider buying a dedicated game system as a dedicated blu-ray player, becaue 1)I'm determined not to support gaming in any way, and 2)A gaming system doubling as a blu-ray player is nothing I'm interested in at all, in any way."

And if that don't satisfy you, I dunno what else I can say.

But I am done discussing it, other than these final thoughts:

I'll never own any game system, and I'm stunned that some folks who call themselves "tech-savvy" would adopt a non-component set-up, in any fashion. Have at it, be my guest; but don't bitch when, because you all just loooove the PS3 soooo much, that the weekly sales are filled with gaming garbage, and have less and less and less in the way of movies (or music), which is the only thing I regularly peruse the ads for.

P.S. My last GF had a PS2/3 or something, which she used as a DVD player. It was an abortion dealing with the controller (in no way a "remote") and the cable, to say nothing of not knowing which buttons on the damned thing did what. Never, ever, ever again.

I bought the dumb bitch a good Sony DVD player and hooked it up for her about a week before we broke up.

But that's just it, it's not a dedicated gaming system. In fact, due it's being primarily a blu-ray player, a lot of games are hobbled with mandatory installs and play better on the Xbox, as that is the console that is easier for developers to make games on. The PS3 is primarily a home-entrainment hub, and everything that entails. Just the fact that tech-savvy people use it as a primary blu-ray player should tell you something.

You may be so anti-videogames that you refuse to buy (or accept) a PS3, and that's fine, but that doesn't discount the fact that it's a damn good blu-ray player and is still worth getting as a home-entertainment hub (besides Netflix, I stream a lot of shit from my PC through my PS3 to my TV) even if you don't play a game for one second.

at both the misspelling and the concept.

So, the PS3 is just a modern version of this:



I'll pass.

I'll replace my components as necessary; when your PS3 pukes out on ya, there goes your entire "entertainment hub", bub.

I owned a PS3 for well over a year and a half without ever buying a single game for it. Since then, I've bought one game on disc, and purchased one game via download. Even then, it's still gets its main use as a Blu-Ray player.

Not that I expect you to change your mind, but you can get a remote for the PS3 to use instead of the controller. Hell, that was one of the first things I purchased, since I admittedly am not fond of using the controller for movies (I do enough of that when I watch Blu-Rays on my girlfriend's PS3).
