Bluray is one of the main components of the PS3 that is differing it from the Xbox 360. However, Aaron Greenberg, Microsoft's director of product management believes that bluray is the reason PS3 sales are trailing the 360.
Greenberg says: "The fact that we're able to offer a console starting at $199 is a benefit of not being burdened with that cost," Greenberg told Edge. "Being $100 cheaper is part of the reason why we're nearly twice [Sony's] installed base."
Greenberg spoke in a recent interview to EDGE magazine supporting his argument with "Sony bet on the physical disc" for entertainment, it's facing "associated costs" that might be holding the PlayStation 3 back.
The Playstation 3's blu-ray compatibility alongside the stability was the reason behind my choice of the PS3, many casual gamers have also chosen the PS3 for this.
In my opinion, the blu-ray makes the PS3 future proof and a clear advantage for those with a HD tv. Even the best quality upscaled DVD can't even compare to a blu-ray disc, making movies much more pleasurable to watch.
I support Sony's decision on keeping the Blu-ray feature on the SLIM model of the PS3, what's your opinion?
