Reading post post suggests to me that he just wants something that will do a nice job playing Blu-Rays, upscaling his DVD's, and the occasional videogame.
$400 before tax is a pretty expensive route to accomplish all of that these days.
That's exactly it. I can't really justify spending that amount of money on a PS4 at the moment. I already own a 360 and I'm purchasing a projector in a few months so I thought I would get the use out of it by getting a Blu Ray player. With the Xbox being able to stream HD videos and a Blu Ray with the PS3, I think that will keep me plenty busy. Plus, I hear there are some really nice games for the PS3 that one could probably get fairly cheap as well.
So going with the Slim model seems the way to go. Is that what I'm hearing?
