Now, I appreciate your input on both system (but from my own research, it seems like PS3 would be more suitable for my entertainment system. Quite frankly, love the fact that it's got BR, and like I said, I'm a PC gamer so online shooters I'll play on the PC but PS3 has great exclusive titles like Little Big Planet that my girlfriend or guests would love (more so than Halo).
Though I have a few more questions:
Are PS3 drives using FAT32 as well (hence the 2.0 file limit)?
Also, does PS3 support surround sound 7.1?
