The PS3 was also recently named one of the best Blu-ray players by CNET, another plus for the system.

Yea, sorry, bro, but CNET has all the credibility of Fox News and MSNBC these days.

If anything, that's more damning of the standalone players than it is lauding the PS3. (Seriously, a lot of them are absolute garbage.)

I would totally get a PS3 instead of a regular Blu-Ray player. I bought one of those "smart" blu-ray players (Toshiba) and after a couple of years of using a PS3 for blu-rays I was thoroughly disappointed. First, the "apps". They never add to them. I can Netflix or Youtube on my Blu-Ray player but I can't Amazon Prime or Hulu. This despite the fact that the box says that "new apps will be coming". Second I never have trouble playing a disc on my PS3. My blu-ray player seems to have trouble occasionally with newer discs. I end up having to wait a month or so longer for updates to the firmware then I do for the updates on the PS3.

So yeah, if I could do it over again, I would have bought a second PS3.
