I find the negative comments about ps 3 too funny and I use to be somewhat anti sony.
I am not a sony fan and never was, did like the ps2 tho. After the ps 2 I bought the xbox 360 and have the wii as well.
Quite simply, the value of the ps3 is unreal compared to other blueray and gaming consoles. I don't even have to explain why, the unit speaks for itself. I loved the xbox 360 and was getting ready to drop some coin for the hd dvd clunky adapter until the news. Not buy the ps3 because of a remote...lol...there are ways around this.
