33 - I am a gamer but already have an XBOX 360 for games. The PS3 is for Blu Ray movies only, and will be sold as soon as someone releases a flagship, full-featured player that's reasonably future-proof.
Wow, I am only the second person in this thread who is under 18. Half the reason i bought it was for gaming, but the Bluray player is really what got me to sell my Wii (I learned I really don't like nintendo-style games) and purchase the PS3. I don't have an HD TV yet though, but that's what summer lawnmowing money is for. I can't wait to see Black Hawk Down in HD!
I am 46 and about to purchase a PS3 as a bluray player for
my projector. In general my wife is very supportive of my HT purchases
as she loves watching movies in our little theater. However, I must say that
she is a little suspisious of this plan. I have never been a gamer.
I have tried to tell her it is not for the games, but sometimes I am not sure if I
believe this myself
For those who don't play games or want to play games but are afraid of buying a crappy game so you just mainly use it as a BD player. Here is a list of all the good games that will come out that you wont waste your money on because these games are totally worth it.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
Gran Turismo 5
Final Fantasy 13
Resident Evil 5
These are all most likely to be quality games that are worth it!
