It's not really interesting or surprising. A lot of people buy the PS3 just for the Blu-Ray, simply because it's the cheapest Blu-Ray Player available.

THE interesting fact would be to know how many PS3 owners actually use their PS3 for gaming.


I doubt anyone would buy the Ps3 for JUST blu-ray movies. If I'd guess I'd say 98.97% of PS3 owners use it for gaming

Let us be realistic my friend, just a couple of quick examples:

lol, if you have a PS3 that has bluray - why wouldn't you buy and play bluray disc on them?

Not surprising that 87% of PS3 owners watch bluray videos on their PS3. :/

I've seen it everywhere. That poster was spread out around Europe before the PS3 launched there.



Keyword: Europe. The PS3 is also being sold in the US and Japan. In a more realistic estimate I'd say 84% of PS3 owners use it for gaming. The Rest for whatever.
In a more realistic estimate, 56.3276% say that they too can pull random numbers out of their ass at will.
The percentage can't be that high. I'm sure a majority of the PS3 owners are playing it for the games, but you can't rule out that there's a huge batch of them that do it for the Blu-Ray support, too.

There are definitely a whole bunch of people who only use the PS3 as a Blu-Ray player.

I visit a bunch of AV forums and there are thousands of people on there who own PS3's soley for the purpose of playing Blu-Ray discs.

The PS3 is a great Blu-Ray player as it has an internet connection and can be updated to the most recent profiles that are developed.

well it's the best blu-ray player on the market and can easily be upgraded via firmware to meet the current profile which is 1.1 - other blu-ray players don't support this, and it's a games machine too.

I remember hearing that it was the cheapest Blu-ray player on the market, and thinking "hmm, maybe I should get it", I didn't give any thought to it about it playing games

In other news, 97.4% of people use cups for holding liquids and 99.2% of those same people polled also reported that they used their TVs for watching television programs.

Not surprising really. I was looking into the next gen of high def movies, and now since WB went Bluray exclusive, it's probably going to win. Kind of a bummer as I was hoping the format would fail, but that's another story. I only have little interest in the PS3 for games as my 360 is doing me fine, but now with the current state of things I might get it to play movies with first, and as a games machine 2nd.

Yeah right I've purchased ONE BD movie ever since I got my PS3 in July 2007.
Rental is so freaking far away it costs $6+tax plus like $4 for transportation. I stick to DVD rental which is 2 minutes away by foot.
PS3 does DVD 1080P upscaling pretty good.

I'm waiting for Pirates of Caribbean BD 3-in-1 bundle pack thingy though.
