i agree that the ps3 has alot of nice little perks like blu ray and those games i mentioned ealier, but it just doesn't have backwards compatability with ps2 games unless you have the old, $600 model.
personally, i get most of the enjoyment out of the wii because of its exceptional library of games, both downloadable and disk based, and for the xbox, mostly just downloadable (i play more orange box than anything else).
i really dont see the charm in blu ray... it just makes movie have higher clarity and 60fps. and that actually makes some movies look WORSE! i mean, have you watched a clockwork orange on dvd, and then watched it on blu ray? on dvd, it has a grittiness and distorted charm that you can only really get with an older output, whilst the blu ray makes it look too good. it loses that classical cham, and makes everything look like somebody is just recording something live with an HD camera. its not surreal enough.
i mean, some movies tend to be visual stunners, but they aren't what i look for in movies. i want a well-written story, charm, extravagance, great characters, entertainment, and a nicely developed plot.
beauty does not a good movie make.
and i'm not arguing about the game library. it definitely does have a nice selection of originals, but i tend to like the games that are available for both consoles, like bioshock, the orange box, rock band, etc.
