What makes a BD300 superior to a 40GB PS3? Posted Image Does it have analog audio outs?

Any price drop is always good, but at 399.00, that I'd have to say is still a bit steep. Going through what's advertised for BF, doesn't look like it's going to be any cheaper than that. I think if BD went down to 299.00 you would probably get a lot of people buying into BD. We do have till Christmas to see if Sony will take the risk.

Rick,
WM had them for $388 as of Friday or so.

The BDPS300 has analog outs but won't decode any of the advanced audio codecs out there. It's also not BDJ compliant. The PS3 is(allegedly).

The PS3 is a better bet IMHO right now but times are changing.
