Ever since the PS3 came out, I had planned on buying one but I was put off by the lack of backwards capability. I kept hoping that new version would be backwards compatible, but that is never going to happen. I have to replace a piece of hardware and I am trying to decide between just buying another Blu-ray player, which is the cheaper option, or biting the bullet and buying the PS3.
To be clear, I am not a die hard gamer...I was big into gaming back when I was rocking my original flawed pentium chip with a first generation flight stick. Now I just play games every once in a while. So I am trying to decide if it is really worth buying the PS3. I am also trying to decide what the purpose/benefit of the drive size is with the PS3. Are you ripping the game to the HD and then playing it off of the drive rather than the disc? Or is is simply for game data>
