After being delayed multiple times, Sony's BDP-S1 Blu-ray is finally available for purchase. They should be in stores now, if not later this week.

Sony's BDP-S1 has 1080p and HDMI outputs, along with the ability to play back just about all Blu-ray format discs out there now. If you're looking to save $400, and can actually find one in stock, a PlayStation 3 can also play back Blu-ray movies in 1080p and has HDMI as well.

Anyone know if the PS3 has the audio connections and sound support a regular player like this would have for things like the dolby 5.1 in movies? Also can the PS3 play regular DVD movies or just blue-ray ones? If it can, then I don't see much of a conundrum here.

$400 more for player and no game system, or $400 less for game system and player. Hmm, no game system bad... player and game system good!
