But the question is how willing will sony be to upgrading the PS3's BD playback? Anyway, AV enthusiast will go for a standalone player with better playback and a richer feature set. For the typical consumer, BD is still to expensive, however when the price does come down to less than 300 sales should pick up. However, by the time that happens standalone will be vastly superior to the PS3, and most consumers will still see the PS3 as a video game console. Really, Blu-ray will only boost PS3 sales for when people are looking for a console AND a high def disc player -- which is a negligible part of the market
