I read that PS3 surpassed any other BR players in the market today, so, does it make sense to buy PS3 to be used exclusively as BR Player? I have 360 HD-DVD player and it works fine as an add-on. I don't consider it as a real long term player for the system, it's more of a band-aid means to check out HD movies until I can get a solid universal HD player (2nd generations beyond LG half-assed player). However, it appears that it will be a while before a mainstream players are available, and I am dying to check out Apocalypto on BR, along with other Disney's classic re-release crops soon to be unveiled.
Also, lacking HDMI on my main RPTV, can anyone really notice the *difference* between HDMI and Component on HD movies (BR and HD)?
