Fellas, begging your indulgence, I don't know jack about video games and I'm hoping you can give me some first hand info.  I like football, boxing, and tennis.  And I suppose I might like to blow up some bad guys.  Are there any games you can play with someone else or, absent of having someone else to play against, yourself?  I suppose I could google this but I'd rather hear from any of you first.  Thanks.

I've been asked to move this thread to IGWB since you guys aren't behaving yourselves.  :nono:

No, sorry. Just kidding. Actually, I've been asked to move it to "Enders Game" since almost every post mentions the PS3.
Seems like a reasonable request to me.

Hope nobody minds.  :thumb:

Wow, quite a thread hijack.  Oh well, us home theater fans can move to AVS Forum I guess.  :)

This was a mistake - please be patient - only wanted to move the post about games for the PS3!

I got a Blu-ray player last week or I guess two weeks ago now and I went with a samsung Up-5000 it is a phenomenal blu ray player, plus it plays hd-dvd (I just got King Kong for less than 5$ shipped)  Add the reon video scaling and the bitstreaming or internal decoding of all surround formats, and you have yourself a hell-of-a player.  If they ever go live with the BD 2.0 profile update for it it will be unbeatable.  Only issue they don't make it anymore, price range is 275-350 though, and they are still releasing firmware updates for it.  The oppo though which should come out it 3-5 months will blow it away for blu ray player with built in SACD and DVDA and anchor bay video scaling, for 5-600 though according to oppo.  For under 400 though I agree the bd-35 can't really be beat.

Rick,
I'll repost over on the other HT thread and that'll get us back on track.  I agree that the Sammy 5000 is a nice swiss army knife find.
