Why all the complaints about the cost of a Blu-ray burner? $100 isn't a bad investment and you can get dual layer rewriteable blanks for around $10. Not that I'm saying that running off a HDD isn't better (that's a huge benefit) but burning blu-rays isn't going to break the bank either.
The dongle yes, until it gets patched by sony, having to buy so called SPECIAL BLANKS, nah forget it, i already have a blue ray burner, but never gonna be bothered woth this until it supports HDD, or normal blanks at least.
I hope somebody rips this to bits!, not that i'm not grateful, but i'd rather buy originals, what a lot of hassle.
