Is the PS3 a Real Blu-ray Player?
What can the PS3 do for Blu-ray?
We tested the Playstation 3’s Blu-ray functions in detail and compared them to two other players on the market: the Sony BDP S500 and the Panasonic DMP-BD30. Both are available for less than $500 and are marketed as affordable yet capable devices, like the PS3.
One of the principle questions we wanted to answer was to determine whether or not one should settle for the Blu-ray functions on Sony’s console, or to invest in a player dedicated specifically to Blu-ray.
