    I recently got a LG 47LM620T (Full HD) TV and am deciding to buy a ps3 (my first), after a couple days research I've leaned towards the Slim (first slim version) 160gb for pricing reasons. Only I just read some alarming things about it doesn't work in 1080p except on Sony TVs?? :devil:

    Is this still the case today? I've read through a few sites but they're always dated 2009/10 so I'm in need of a recent reply.

    While I'm at it:

    * Now these models out OOP are they still upgradeable to newer firmware updates.
    * Is it fine for a dedicated 2D/3D blu-ray player.
    * Is there anything else I should be aware of?

    Can anyone help me please asap?

    Dunno who told you, or where you read the thing about Sony tv's, cause they are talking out their rear.
    The PS3 works equally well at 1080p on any tv that will either accept a 1080p signal, or a 1080p tv.

    As to your other questions, it's Yes, Yes, and No.

    yea, that is load of BS about only sony tv's playing 1080p

    i use a samsung and it's perfectly fine in supporting 1080p

    any of the ps3 "slim phat, and new slim" will have the same firmware though out ,

    i use mine as a dedicated play , 2d only and it dose a damn good job :smashin:
