I had a quick question for anyone who may be able to help. I just got this Blu-Ray player (a Sony BDP-S300 for the lazy) today for a Christmas gift and I was wondering how the PS3 compared to it just as a Blu-Ray player. My dad thought about getting me a PS3 but a few salesmen talked him out of it because they said it wasn't as good as Blu-Ray player as the standalone players. From what I understand it's as good as most Blu-Ray players and also has the ability to be more easily updated compared to other players, giving it more flexibility if any situations ever arise. One of the main gripes the salesmen had with the PS3 was that it wouldn't play Dual Layer Blu-Ray movies, which I never heard of that being a problem. The added benefit of the PS3 being a console is nice, but not completely important because I already have a 360 and a Wii. Also, I'd like to know how well the PS3 upscales standard DVDs. This thread is not intended to put Blu-Ray vs HD-DVD or PS3 vs. 360 as I know many of the previous threads have done. I'm just interested in how the PS3 stands as a Blu-Ray player compared to other ones on the market. Thanks in advance for all the help.
