Why buy a standalone mediaplayer if you already have a device that would be capable of doing exactly the same (except due to lack of codec support).
Also, have you actually seen the 3D of the 50's-80's compared to the 3D from now? that's a lot of difference IMHO.. ofcourse IMHO it's only fun for a few movies, not everything.. I can't say anything about gaming as the only real 3D gaming I have ever done is using HMD's with headtracking and even on a low resolution as 640x480 it is a whole different (positive) experience as playing the same game at a 2D flatscreen with 1920x1080 resolution, I'm already wetting myself even thinking about 1280x720 (or higher resolutions) for HMD's..

Why can a simple $50 mediaplayer play anything but our expensive PS3 can only play a few without transcoding.. Sony also puts the PS3 as a mediaplayer into the market, but as a mediaplayer it just stinks compared to a $50 version.. But I don't want a lot of devices connected to my TV when one would be able to handle it all (and the PS3 is able to handle it)..
