    I'd lean towards the PS3 right now if I had to buy one of those 2 consoles. If you get the itch for the latest and greatest consoles at year end/ early next year, you can always dedicate the PS3 to blu ray player duties in another room. Graphically, they're very similar, and I am honestly comfortable with either controller.

    I still enjoy gaming on my PS3. I also like the fact that online gaming is free, as I use it so rarely, I can't justify paying for it each year.

    As a severely pro-PS3 person, easy with the "near reference" comment on the BD player. It's no better than a standard $100 BD now days. I just added a Sony 790 BD player to my theater and it stomps the PS3 like a red headed step child, and is only $250 full retail. I can imagine what a real reference player would look like.

    Come again,

    PFB I disagree completley, the Spec sheet on the ps3 hardware may be better, but developers have a easier time intergrating their products with the Xbox and it shows! More recent PS3 games have caught up, but PS3 definetley does not have a advatage in what you mentioned. Hardware is one thing but coding is another, early on the XBOX had a huge advatage. The PS3 has leveled the field some recently but the winner in both of what you mentioned goes to the XBOX 360 hands down.

    I agree. I think someone said that earlier in the thread, somewhere around post #8.

    But being more realistic I'd say next year this time unless you plan on camping out days ahead.

    Actually, the PS3 rates pretty highly as a blu-ray player, and has dead-on frequency response as far as the HDMI output goes. It just doesn't come close for standard DVDs, which is why most don't consider it a reference player.

    Not that I care, 'cause I have an Oppo BDP-93.

    I have the OPPO 83 and keep looking into the new OPPO than I can drop the Sony I'm using for 3D and have an all in one. cause the OPPO by far has a better picture.

    And no I still don't have a gaming system, The day is young. Although I did read that the PS3 does 3D after I was told it did not and that the PS4 will. so if I was to get the PS3 I could pull my Sony 3D player out that is a few years old.

    I have way over thought this!!! last time i put this much time into upgrading it took 3 years to buy a new AVR lol

    XBox seems to have a better gaming database and more comfortable (at least to me) controllers. On the other hand, PS3 plays blu-rays, supports 95% of movies on my computer (vs ~50-60% with 360), has Netflix (not sure if new 360 has it). I think all in all, PS3 is more home theater friendly than 360, especially if you'll get a Harmony adapter for it, like I did when I had one. Also, PS3 is "infinitely" upgradable, compared to stand-alone blu-ray players, so it now supports latest 5.1/1080p Netflix (and my Oppo 93 doesn't!).

    I have a PS3, but I'm NOT a gamer. Very little interest there. My 15 year old daughter deals with that!

    But, from what I hear, most gamers prefer the (SE)X-BOX! Gee, I wonder why?

    Sorry I couldn't help myself. I mean, come on, who calls their PRODUCT an X-BOX and doesn't expect to get razed about it?

    As of late it has been getting called that with the addition of the net browser app that I'm sure many parents are not aware of. Basically you can use to xbox to now surf porn under the radar from restricted home computers that have a browser filter
