lolol! Not really sure what language I'm in. I thought Ron was voicing his allegiance to PS3. I was just sharing my enthusiasm. Probably turned the train into a subway. Lol

I have no experience with any of the Microsoft gaming consoles but I still think the XBoxOne should provide a good multimedia experience. Agree with all touting the PS3 as a fantastic Blu-Ray player! The only improvement I gained with the PS4 is load times. Other than that I actually preferred the PS3 if for nothing else the cover art when I threw in a movie. I know that is probably trivial to most since you only see it briefly before hitting play but I have some OCD issues.

Wink Re: Xboxone a good blu ray player and media center?

Standalone blu3 ray players are a better choice IMO. It wears down disc drive more on consoles when you use them for movies. I stopped playing on my ps3 for this reason, but xbox1 are probably more durable.

I say go ahead, but might shorten console lifespan. If u are a big movie fan like me, and watch endless movies.
If u only watch a few movies a week your good.

Re: Xboxone a good blu ray player and media center?

Should I use bitstream setting or PCM on Xbox one. I can't get Dolby True HD or DTS-HD to light up on Onkyo 636.
