Actually, to be honest, I bought mine strictly as a Blu Ray player and it was cheaper, at the time, then any of the better stand alone players on the market. That, in and of itself, makes the PS3 a steal if you plan to use it to play movies. Blu Ray player and a gaming system on par with the 360? For $300??? Awesome.

I still use my 360 exclusively for gaming and streaming audio from my PC, but I love having the PS3 for movies and the occasional game.

As far as competing in the console market...meh. I got me the best Blu Ray player.
