The "Blu-ray Disc Founder" was founded in May 2002 by nine leading electronic companies: Sony, Matsu****a, Pioneer, Philips, Thomson, LG Electronics, Hitachi, Sharp, and Samsung. Spearheaded by Sony Corporation, on February 19th 2002 the companies announced [2] that they were the "Founders" of the Blu-ray Disc and later changed their name to the "Blu-ray Disc Association" on May 18, 2004 to allow more companies to join their development. Some examples of companies that signed in include Apple, TDK, Dell, Hewlett Packard, The Walt Disney Company, Warner Bros. and Universal Music Group. As of December 2007, there are more than 250 members and supporters of the Association.

The PS3 supports 1080p/60 as well I thought, and if it doesn't they could add firmware that would allow it. The cell processor has plenty of power for 1080p at 60FPS.

Wait, we can't stop here. This is bat country...

What's the relevance of 1080p/60? For games? Because it's not for movies....

60 is not a good idea, considering 24fps has been fine for 50 years. I don't think our eyes have gotten any better in that time...

had a lil conversation about this in anothe forum.
There are limits to what we notice. But essentially, in terms of this, there is no limit. You can notice certain changes to say, FPS, or refresh rate, but we don't notice the faster or higher rates due to them being so fast. it all depends on the focus we put forth. Ever looked at an incandesent bulb and noticed the amount of lighting changing ever so slightly? similar to going from 60Hz refresh to anything higher, then back to 60Hz. At first u notice the difference, but after sticking with that setting for a bit yuo don't notice it, or its alot harder to.

OK, the PS3 is only for casual movie watchers or gamers. People who have a dedicated home theatre setup or anyone who wants to get the most out of blu-ray will get a dedicated player. PS3 can't pass bitstream audio? That's terrible if you have a home theatre setup. Why would you want the player to do the audio decoding if you have a dedicated audio receiver? I would personally want my receiver to do all the audio decoding considering that's what it's made for.

As for 1080P/60, that's bad for movies. Movies are shot in 1080P/24, so you would want to output the video in that format, otherwise your TV or your player has to do the interpolation of what's supposed to be fitting in the other 36 frames per second. Not a good setup.

So like I said, people who have a dedicated home theatre setup (nice TV or projector, audio receiver, ect.) are going to want a dedicated player because the quality WILL be higher if you get a quality player. However, the PS3 is a good option for some people who aren't as concerned about the movie playing quality and want an all-in-one machine.
