    As someone who plans to buy one eventually and will use it as a DVD player, my only questions are: how well does it play DVD's and are there any problems with compatibility(DVD-R, DVD+R, VCD) ? I just wonder if it will be able to play these discs as I burn these formats quite often on my computer and is essential some if not all will play correctly.

    I burn DVD's all the time and there are no issues whatsoever. In fact, Sony released a firmware update a while ago so that it can play BD-R as well.

    I wouldn't mind paying for the ridiculous prices for the systems but honestly now how many games from any of the systems are worth $59.99?

    i could've sworn i paid close to 50 bucks back in the 80's for the latest and greatest games. i don't think 60 bucks is too much to ask. i buy games maybe once a month, so it's not too much. i just save some of my lunch money. wow, some things never change...lol

    NHL08, BioShock, Gears of War, Call of Duty 2 & 3, Lost Planet, Splinter Cell : Chaos Theory and Halo 3 are the ones I have that are defintely worth it.

    Rainbow Six Vegas based upon the demo looks to be worth it as well.

    in a day and age where people spend $4 for a cup of coffee $60 is not too much for a good game.

    Thank You both for the responses. The main reason I wondered is I've always had problems trying to play these discs on PS2. Granted, being out for years without any update or firmware makes it understandable.

    Yeah, the PS2 wasn't very good when it came to DVD-R/DVD+R.

    By the way, to give you guys a better understanding of how powerful the Cell Processor in the PS3 is, read this article.
