Are they basically the same player other than those features?

The 1600 and 3600 are the same except for a few little differences:
1. The 3600 includes the Wi-Fi dongle, which I mentioned earlier. With the 1600, you need to buy that separately for a very high price.
2. The 3600 has a 1GB onboard memory
3. The 3600 is more powerful, so loading time is shorter, even shorter than the PS3, I heard.
4. There are also a few little other extras the 3600 has, but are of very little importance to me, so I don't remember what they were.
If it has to be either the 3600 or 1600, then buy the 1600 for $200 or less. The 3600 is $400 and at that price, you might as well buy a PS3. So, decide to go with either the 1600 or a PS3, not 1600 or 3600.
