A lot of people seem to be buying a Playstation 3 for the Blu-ray player - even people who already have every other console!

What a reverse coup for Sony compared to the Betamax fiasco.

I was perfectly happy with my $170 HD-DVD XBox add-on.

I must be the odd one out then. I had a Sammy 5K, which was a POS IMHO, which I dropped it faster than heavy stuff falls and went with a PS3 after reading way too much AVS info.

Do the circling black helicopters and dark cars count as being forced?

Mits 73835, Denon X4000, Emotiva UPA5 (triggered), Wharfedale Pacific Evo 40s, CS, 10s, the internet, a NAS drive, a TiVo Series 3 and an Oppo 103 (bye bye PS3). There's also a Wii, but we don't talk about that...

You know, I once knew this girl Doreen. Good-looking girl. Looked just like a Jaguar, only she was a truck! You know, I used to crash into her just so I could spoke to her.

The PS3 is the best way to go for a blu ray player. Sony did an outstanding job implementing this into the system. They obviously had planned this from the beginning and it has payed off greatly.
