I bet Bluray support sold a lot of PS3s. I wonder what it would take? Is a hardware change needed for 4K?
I remember when the PS3 was what, $500-600 at launch?
I wonder if I paid $500, and that was well after the launch.
I purchased 30-40 games on the PS3 during it's entire lifespan compared to hundreds on Xbox, I only got maybe 30-40 hours of total gaming in on the PS3 total
, but man....that Blu-ray player sure paid off. Primary video device seemingly forever...
That's an hour average per game. They were that bad? I got fewer games, but tended to play some of them a lot. Particularly with Playstation plus, it's easy to play a game for just an hour or less, but I try to be a bit selective with my purchases. Not all are winners, but I can think of ones that I didn't like so much that I still got a bit of gameplay out of. By not buying it on launch day, I always felt it had lots of games.
I didn't buy the PS4 on launch day either, but I'm still waiting for more games to grab me. But even there, I'm making some use out of it. We even spent hours playing Knack, although it gets repetitive after a while.
A $400 entry point for 4K Blu-ray would be sweet!
Yeah, I still use the Playstations for Bluray playing on the main TV -- I have a BR player, but it's on a separate TV.
Actually, I'd probably like 3D support for games more than 4K movies. *shrug*
