Oh - and who says you have to get a huge HDTV for a blue ray...
Pretty sure my ghetto 20 year old 46" projection TV (definately NOT HDTV) would look absolutely amazing with blue ray...
My PS3 comment was to specify that in order to attain the advantages that the PS3's Blu-Ray player has (which is great, I know), is that you NEED to purchase a $1500+TV to utilize it. Even though PS3 looks great on your projection 46"TV that is NOT HDTV, a standard DVD player would provide the exact same image quality as the $600 PS3 would, since your TV can't utilize HDTV, thus justifying my comment that Blu-Ray costs thousands to reap true benefits. That said, as a gaming console, I don't think the PS3 or Wii have anything against 360 at this time, besides the fact that 360's have a higher fail-rate.
The 360 has hundreds of games out for it. The PS3 doesn't, and the Wii has virtually zero games out for it (ACTUAL games, not silly party games).
I've ALWAYS been a playstation fanboy, I went out and paid $300 for a PS2 when I was only 15 and had NO money, because I knew it would pwn. I just think that at this stage in the game, the PS3 has been bested, and that the Wii isn't even in the question since it can barely boast PS2/Xbox graphics and has zero games available.
I just spent $290 to get a like-new Xbox 360 PREMIUM(2 yrs and 2 months full warranty left), Gears of War, and an HD cable for my LCD monitor. So basically, to game in HD, as well as having dozens of great games available to me, it only cost's me $290 with a 2yr+ warranty. PS3 ALONE costs $600.
