Serious question, not an attempt at flaming. I understand eventually wanting a PS3. But the games seem to be lacking and the cost is high. Now I see the price on Blu-Ray players are starting to drop, and may well be at or near the same cost as the PS3 by XMas. Some HD players are already below it. And that's assuming one has an HDTV that can take advantage of it. So, other than scalping, why fight the crowds and pay the price? What am I missing?
