Already got superbad a week and a half ago..

Pirates is a must. Other than that, nothing really interests me otherwise.

Anyone else?

The most important question to ask is if I can kill someone with the Batrang


Just call my local bestbuy and they had no clue about a sale..

Are genres like Comedy even worth it for Blu Ray (or for that matter HD DVD)?If not I'll just get it on DVD.

Good thread idea, hope it stays updated.

Yes, superbad is well damn worth it. It Looks amazing.

Granted, Comedies arent known for their special effects, but they are worth it.
Its 29.99 for all the extras regular dvd gets.. and that dvd costs what 22.99? 7 bucks more you get high def audio/video :)

Some comedies arent worth it in my opinion though..

Running with Scissors for one.. Sigh.

But Superbad is a must buy for Blu Ray.

I figured I'd just buy those action packed movies, since how much better can Comedy movies look? Thanks for the suggestion, I'll look into Superbad.

Scary movie is one of the best looking comedies to date.

Put in the dvd, then the blu ray. Holy god. Amazing transfer.

I'm actually a big fan of the Scary Movie series (yeah I know, you can stone me later) so I'll pick that up eventually. I still have to do my 5 free blu ray offer too.

$18 AR for Pirates is pretty good and I wouldnt mind owning it since it was the best by far out of the 3 movies.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

POTC is a must have.

I wonder if Mr and Mrs Smith has anything new on it that would make it worth getting since I have it on DVD already.

I've been pondering getting a Blu-Ray player because I have the HD-DVD add-on for the 360, but some movies I want are Blu-Ray only... is the PS3 my best bet? or is there a slightly cheaper good stand-alone player?... I also have my two HDMI inputs used up on my receiver... one for the 360, one for my cable box... so, even though I can run another HDMI cable to my TV, I would have to use optical audio for one of the 3 devices... any idea which is best to use that with then?...

thanks for any info.

PS3 is your best bet. You CAN find some BLu-ray players for cheaper (like this one
http://www.target.co... blu-ray&page=1

However, the PS3 is your best bet as it is completly future proof and does pretty much everything now except decode DTS-HD MA, which unless your geko, you probably won't notice. ;)

And I think we should just copy the 360 forum and call this the "Blu-ray Software Thread"

Video wise its not been doing so well, only one site has given it five star video.. apparently the quality has gone down.. which doesnt make sense since they shot 2 and 3 at the same time using the same equipment.

Ill post more info on Tuesday.

And to the person asking about Mr/Mrs Smith

Not 100 percent sure, but I think all the dvd extras are ported over. Im getting it on Tuesday, and Ill post.

If a Mod stickies.. every week Ill update where to get the cheapest ones at.. as long as others are willing to help :)

The cheapest standalone player I've seen is the same price as the 40 Gb PS3. If you're a gamer, I can't think of a better choice for a BR player than the PS3.

Imma get Super Bad. I just got Ratatoiule (however its spelled) what an amazing Bluray. It is packed TIGHT with content... I love it.

Amazing CG work in that movie to. I just can't believe people acctually made everything in that movie. It's impossible.

Aren't there some features that the 40 Gb PS3 lacks?

In terms of blu-ray playback? Probably, but I'm not sure what they are. However, I use my Ps3 (60gb) as a blu-ray player and if I am missing something, I'm not aware of what it is.

In terms of gaming, it cannot play PS2 games. Only ps3 games and downloaded ps1 games, is my understanding.

No, nothing in terms of BD playback.
See poster above for other gaming features that are lacking.
