Wondering what's the best blu ray player?

If anybody asks us what's the best blu ray player, we don't recommend one of the new fancy kids on the block. Instead we recommend an older model that is the most versatile home entertainment option out there, the Sony Playstation 3.

The Playstation 3 is a fully functioning blu ray player, but it's also a DVD player, games console, internet browser, and music player. It's fair to say it does it all! But it's been out for five years now, I hear you say! This simply isn't an issue, as the Playstation 3 enjoys regular firmware upgrades, meaning it is at the very cutting edge of the current technological innovations.

The Playstation 3 will upscale all of your old DVDs to something approaching blu ray quality, and it also compatible with all of the new 3D blu rays hitting the market (providing you have a 3D TV of course!). For us, it's also the best gaming system for playing video files you have on your computer, as it handles .avi files superbly. It even comes with a brilliant multi media controller, so you don't have to fiddle around with the controller to make it work. And we haven't even mentioned the other features of this excellent system!

The Sony PS3 is probably the most advanced gaming console on the market, using the extra storage space on the blu ray discs to deliver deep and fulfilling gaming experiences the like of which you won't see on other consoles.

It's an all-round media behemoth, and no home should be without one! You can pick up the PS3 for around £250 in bundles from most game stores right now.
