The best family Blu-ray DVD player on the shelves this season may also be one of the top-rated console gaming systems.

According to a recent review, the Sony PlayStation 3 80 GB model (selling for about (US)$400), “…offers an excellent picture (1080p output via an HDMI port) and top sound quality (7.1 Dolby TrueHD audio). … Along with the Pioneer [Elite BDP-05FD], it was the fastest we tested at loading movies.”

In these tight-pursed times, when families are looking at pooling their holiday gift dollars for one or two big gifts everyone can enjoy, a two-in-one value like the PlayStation 3 may be just the ticket!
