The folks at Ars Technica have made an interesting discovery. Apparently, Sony's PS3 does a better job of playing scratched up DVDs than the Xbox 360, which spits them out the minute it notices any imperfections. I rarely use my console as my DVD player, but I have experienced the "OMG the disc won't play" notification on my Xbox that the Ars guys are talking about. Any of you lucky PS3 owners have problems with the PS3's movie-playing capabilities?

I'd never play a rented DVD in a videogame console since I'm ignorant on how to really clean the lenses. (Do the generic DVD lens cleaner discs actually work?).
