I finally caved and bought my first Blu-ray disk ...well, set of disks... they had Star Wars on Blu-ray for reasonably cheap, and since I don't own a DVD copy of it, I picked it up.
This now means I'll be needing a Blu-ray player. It'd be nice to get something that could handle 3D in the even that I get around to getting a 3D TV in the future.
Is the PS3 still only the really decent Blu-ray player out there that won't be terribly outdated/deprecated, or is your average unit decent enough these days? I remember all the kerfuffle that happened when Blu-ray was coming out with regards to network compatibility and copy protection - certain cheaper Blu-ray players were not able to receive updates and thus wouldn't play newer disks (or something like that). Is this still an issue?
I was hoping to get something reasonably priced, and the PS3 is still a bit more than what I'd like to pay. If it is the only decent machine, I'll wait another few months then pick one up. I don't really care that it is a gaming machine, but it does seem to be one of the better options out there as a decent Blu-ray player.
