Without even knowing it, prior to our meeting, she bought a widescreen, HD capable TV.
Tom and I bought a PS3 for 360|Flex Atlanta, since he’s already equipped for gaming, and Blue Ray, I got this one. Not counting when it’s doing a tour of duty as the official Rock Band/Guitar Hero station for 360|Flex, it’s now our Blue Ray player. I doubt I’ll ever own or play a PS3 game, since my gaming days ended when the Original NES died… Good times, good times.
I was pleasantly surprised (I was fully thinking that we’d be buying a new TV sooner than planned to handle HD content) when I upgraded the PS3’s OS to support the BD/BlueTooth remote control, and it comes up with “HDMI Device Detected. Use it?”
“Oh hellz yeah!”
I watched a few minutes of Spider-Man 3 (came with the system), and then Transformers, and WOWZA! While I don’t think the world changed, or that I’ll never watch non 1080 content again, I will say that DAMN it does look great!
