Saw this in a Wired RSS feed I subscribe to (via SharpReader)... it was posted on the 1st of September at 12:30PM, I don't know if its old news that everyone knows or not, but here goes:

Wired RSS Feed said:
Sony confirms that the $500 version of its PlayStation 3 won't be able to play Blu-ray movies at their full resolution. From the Game|Life blog.
Edit: Found the link that the feed came from:

Hah, I knew Sony would pull something stupid with this. :rolleyes:

Personally, I could care less about the next-gen formats. They're expensive, glitchy and aren't practical enough to justify the ridiculous prices (Plextor's desktop Blu-Ray drive costs $999.99!). :mad: I think I'll stick with the trusty DVD. :D
