[quote=jdg345;12578897]Perhaps, but a Pioneer player isn't subsidized to the same level as a PS3 is, or is it? There has been much discussion that the PS3 Subsidy is 'okay' because it follows the standard model of a Game Console and Sony would make back it's money on Games.
I purchased a PS3 two weeks ago as what I perceived to be the best BD player out there and the one most likely to be able to be updated the longest--at least to Profile 2.0. OTOH, if Sony is setting their target for the PS3 to be mainly a gaming platform, they need to (A) have LOTS more games out there similar to the selection for the XBox and (B) somehow allow lower MAP pricing on their games to push sales. We have two games for our PS3 thanks to a poor selection and high pricing of the games. BUT--the PS3 does BD movies, games and media machine functions very well.
