I have an ATV2. Is it worthwhile to upgrade to an ATV3? ATV3 I believe is 1080p.

I recently bought a new 3d TV 1080p 240Hz and wondering if it would be worthwhile for the upgrade. I could leave the atv 2 just to jailbreak and such.

But, if the content is NOT there.... well no point in upgrading.

Thanks

IMO, unless you have additional reasons to upgrade (i.e. need another ATV) then I would wait. The differences between the ATV2 and 3 are marginal (aside from the hackability of the ATV2 of course) and don't really necessitate an upgrade. It's also hard to tell what Apple has planned for the ATV as there hasn't been a shred of information leaked or even speculated upon for that matter.

Plenty of content. I traded my two ATV2's to a guy on eBay, he sent me brand new ATV3's plus $75 via PayPal for each.
