    I would like to know this as well because if it does and does it well like my Denon 1920 dvd player then i might sell it and put the money towards a PS3

    Let me know if you are considering selling your Denon 1920 - may be in the market for one soon.

    It does play DVD's & I'm sure I read somewhere that it will do progressive/upscale. It better do anyway as its another part for me justifying paying £425 as I don't own a progressive or upscaling DVD. I use my MCPC which is progressive/upscaling but not as convinient as a DVD/Console player.

    You obviously don't follow PS3 news. Boards have been produced for manufacture for a while now :rolleyes:

    Why do XBOX360 owners always have to down the PS3? Having had an XBOX360 I thinks is a great machine for pure games playing and wouldn't dream of downing it (apart from noise level) even though I'm buying a PS3.

    its just a few random idiots who can't see that competition is good and if the PS3 does fail, and sony don't make a PS4, then MS will be free to do pretty much what they like with the next Xbox, in regard to price etc.

    this is what I don't understand.
    If it wasn't for sony, then MS could do near enough what they wanted in regards to the xbox price. Same with sony. If MS wasn't in the market, then sony could do what they wanted with their prices

    Competition is good, and if sony do miss their deadline, it means less competition during the xmas period for MS, which means if they wanted to, they could hold of a price cut, or a game or something like that.

    Think Sony have hit the max anyone would pay anyway. If it was any higher than £425 for Premium, I wouldn't buy it. I'm still thinking UK price might come in at the £399 price when announced.

    A lot of world goods are base costed in US$ and at current exchange rate £399 is still around $750 (good rates at the moment!)

    At 21/8/06, confirmed US Premium price is $600 (£316), confirmed Euro price is EU600 (£408). £399 does look a possibility.
