Ok, I've been doing 360 for the last 3 years. I bit the bullet and got me a PS3 mostly for Bluray movies but I do want to game on it too. What are the best gaming titles and the best eye candy of Blue Ray movies? I do have a 52 inch samsung 1080p plasma too.

see i dont get this, they come out with blueray versions of old movies. Werent those movies shot with old cameras that dont film at a high enough resolution for it to make sense to put it on Br? Mirrors Edge looks good, could have used more AA if you ask me. You should check out Kung Foo Panda on BR. It is crisp as heck!

I though the same way when I was purchasing the Rambo Trilogy, but, for $30, especially in Blu-Ray, I couldn't pass the offer up.
They definitely do look better than normal DVDs, but, definitely not like a newer movie would.

It really depends on the film. 2001 looks just as good as a modern films, sans fancy special effects.

yes they were shot on old film, but were not processed at their limits because of the limits of VHS and DVD. There are old movies such as superman and die hard movies that look better than some new movies, given the age.

1930 King Kong can be in 1080p. All movies are shot, even the old ones with a max resolution 4 times greater than 1080p. It's just they were downconverted for movie cameras, tape, vcr, dvd and even blueray. Resolutions can go atleast 4 times greater than what they are now and in theory, even more.

I have a rental service to fuel my blu-ray obsession so I get about 4 a week to watch. Since I got my PS3 and HDTV I've been hooked on the pure quality of blu-ray. With the right movie it just beats cinema out of the water.

Films that I would recommend on blu-ray:

- BBC Planet Earth BoxSet (astounding)
- Ironman (best marvel blu-ray)
- Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (Timeless and beautiful classic)
- Speedracer (probably the best quality blu-ray on the market. Visuals beyond belief at times. As a movie its nothing special but the sheer quality of the picture is something to behold)
- Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford (great western movie with brilliant acting)
- Independance Day (brilliant turnover to blu-ray gives it justice)

Finally, any disney pixar blu-ray. e.g Wall-e, Ratatouille, Meet The Robinsons etc etc. Disney Pixar movies are amazing on blu-ray. Something every blu-ray owner should experience.

Games I'd Recommend:

LittleBigPlanet
Metal Gear Solid 4
Resistance 2
Call Of Duty 4/World At War
Far Cry 2
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue
GTA IV

Hope this helps!

Band of Brothers on Blu-Ray was released this week. It retails for $100 bucks but you can get it at amazon for $54.99

Amazon.com: Band of Brothers [Blu-ray]: John Adams, James Alley Jr., Brendan Carr, Lynn 'Buck' Compton, Dominic Cooper, Michael Edmiston, Jonathan Edwards Young, Matthew Faber, Chris Finch, Brandon Firla, Chris Geere, Joanna Gonet, David Frankel, David Leland, David Nutter, Mikael Salomon, Phil Alden Robinson, Richard Loncraine, Tom Hanks, Tony To: Movies & TV Amazon.com: Band of Brothers [Blu-ray]: John Adams, James Alley Jr., Brendan Carr, Lynn 'Buck' Compton, Dominic Cooper, Michael Edmiston, Jonathan Edwards Young, Matthew Faber, Chris Finch, Brandon Firla, Chris Geere, Joanna Gonet, David Frankel, David Leland, David Nutter, Mikael Salomon, Phil Alden Robinson, Richard Loncraine, Tom Hanks, Tony To: Movies & TV

I got mine with 1 day shipping for like $66 dollars. In my opinion it is the best deal for anyone with a blu ray player considering the amount of content you get. There also are some interactive features also but I cannot vouch for them as I don't have it yet. I cannot wait for tomorrow
. Other Blu rays that I thought were good were Ironman, Master and Commander: The Far side of the World, Black Hawk Down, Tears of the Sun, No Country for Old Men, Gangs of New York, and a bunch of others.

As far as games, I am not really a console gamer. Gran Turismo when it comes out is sure to be great. Grid was pretty good, so was Metal Gear Solid 4 if you were a fan of the previous ones.

On a side note, the greatest value I get out of my PS3 is setting it up to connect to media servers I have running on my two desktops. This allows me to play my music, movies I have ripped to my harddrive, etc right through my TV and surround sound system. The capabilities of the PS3 can be quite impressive in my honest opinion.
