Never had a PS2. I guess the price drop (40GB) got me - I was looking for an HD player and the PS3 is the cheapest of the bunch, besides the sold-out $100 specials on HD-DVD.So far so good although just set up on an SD TV so far. The machine gets hot and the fan is loud - definitely a problem when watching movies. Hopefully it only got hot because I was playing a game. The fan didn't cut out after the movie had been playing a while though. Hmm. Will have to see how that goes.Also got a Wii a couple of weeks ago. Very cool system. Very different from the PS3 - much friendlier in the menus etc. Also very easy to pick up. The PS3 controller is intimidating with so many buttons, and the menu, while actually quite simple, appears much more complex.Anyway swung by Fry's today to check out the movie selection. Good prices there on Bluray. The Bluray section was much larger than I expected - and about 20% larger than the HDDVD section. I browsed for a while and came back again later. Both times I only saw one or two people looking at the HDDVD side, and several people looking for Bluray. So my anecdotal tally is that Bluray is doing better.My guess is that with the interest in HD this Christmas, PS3 will do well. Wii you can't find, and doesn't do HD anyway. Wii is a great system but I think Sony will do well, with the price drop too.Might be picking up some SNE although it's hard to be excited by the stock's minimal movement over the past year or two.Graham.
