New Blu-ray 2.0 spec makes PS3 the most future-proof player
 
This is quite the odd turn of events: it was assumed when the PS3 launched that the gaming system would be the Trojan horse that brought Blu-ray into the homes of the mass market. Now? The inexpensive and future-proofed Blu-ray functions of the PS3, matched with the high-quality upscaling the system brings to normal DVDs, may be the Trojan horse bringing gaming to home theater enthusiasts.

This presents an opportunity to pick up cheaper profile 1.0 standalone players on Ebay, as Profile 1.1 and 2.0 players are being introduced. . This week I bought a Samsung 1400 series stand-alone for less than 200 dollars on the online auction site.

The PS3 makes a great player, but as a gaming machine, I don't have much use for it considering I have an Xbox 360. Gaming-wise, the machines are much too similar to own both.
