I was sure that I set it up to upconvert movies to 1080p on my 55" Samsung DLP, but I think it must have been playing it in 480p because it didn't even look as good as it had on the 360. Does the PS3 do that with any DVD that has copy protection on it? Do you have to rip a movie and burn it to a DVD+R to get it to upconvert SD movies?
You said you were 3 minutes into the previews when it went down. That doesn't give you much to stand on for an arguement.
These threads kill me. A very good friend of mine is Pro HD DVD and we all laugh at him. They are like NE Patriots fans that still think they won the superbowl. It is a waste of time to even discuss it.
He refuses to come over to watch a BR movie on my PS3 saying it is ugly and a POS, and way too expensive. Then all he does on the side is complain about his HD DVD players (3 of them) having issues with firmware upgrades and movies locking up. Plus, now all of a sudden his complaint is cost to get into BR. Too Funny. The cost of a PS3 today is what each of his Toshibas cost since he jumped in on day 1, so they were not $150.00.
For every 1 person that says my PS3 is ugly, 10 think its cool.
I am purple
so no need to throw stones, but for what it is worth I have had more issues with my Toshiba and none with my PS3. Everything I have thrown at it has worked, although the Toshiba upconverts my SD better on my 106" screen. IMHO.
I also agree that pricing will come down on BR due to competition between companies, it always has and always will. You don't think Toshiba will come out with a BR player? Bet they have one and comes out at $200-250.00
The HD DVD side should be mad at Toshiba for failing them, not the BR camp. Toshiba kept saying they were losing money on every player they sold, maybe they should have not taken pricing down and spent it into some advertising.
