Playstation 3

Now that the holiday season is over, Britt and I are contemplating the purchase of a Playstation 3. The amusing thing is that we’re thinking about getting one, mostly, for the ability to stream Netflix on our TV with the videogames and Blueray playability as secondary concerns.

Sure, we could get one of those Roku Players (?) that would let us stream Netflix but it seems silly to have a device dedicated to the function. My logic is that we’re eventually going to want a Blueray player and also that we occasionally like to play videogames, thus PS3 makes sense.

Also, I’ve been hearing good things about Dragon Age: Origins which has made me curious to check it out.

Of course, being us, we’re not in any huge hurry to acquire a new thing. Since the main function would be streaming Netflix and we’re still pretty happy with the selection of DVDs that we can get from the library system, we haven’t just run out and bought one.

I figure it will be before the end of the year, though.

    We’ve been streaming Netflix over our Xbox for a while now. I can’t even remember the last time I set foot in a Blockbuster.

    Also, Netflix streaming is coming to the Wii this year, although you can’t get hi-def through that. Still, you’ll save a lot of money up front.

    Netflix through a Wii, huh?

    Just what I needed, another choice! 😉 That’s good to know, though. Thanks, Tim.
