Watching blu-ray/DVDs? Media streaming? Web browsing? Music? What's your most used feature on the PS3 other than gaming.

The only other thing I use it for is Blu-Ray playback, only because I haven't gotten a dedicated Blu-Ray player yet.

Gaming and Movies. I hope consoles get back to simple stuff. Facebook and netflix and all the other stuff is not needed.

I watched two movies on my PS3 and realized it was pointless because I already had a Blu Ray and DVD player. I use my PS3 for gaming and gaming only.

The only thing other than gaming I use my PS3 for is watching Blu-ray. I use my 360 for DVDs since my PS3 is Japanese. I think next season I'm buying an MLB.TV subscription so I'll probably be using that too.

Blu-rays and media streaming.... much prefer the PS3 as my media hub than actually building a media PC dedicated to the purpose of media stremaing and playing...

Netflix should be in the same category as blu-rays and DVDs. Other than gaming I mostly use Netflix, but I'll also pop in a blu-ray every once in a while. I'm not too big of a "watching movies at home" person.

It's my movie maching and currently my only link to the net when a power supply dies and short on cash to get another one. I do wish my PS2/USB converter worked for my keyboard on my PS3 and the browser didn't have so much crummy limitations...

I use vidzone daily.

Really nice freebie and running much better since that last patch.

I work from home and have my console in my office, and have my vidzone playlists running in the background.

I use it for Netflix and web browsing. It's nice to just have one machine that lets you do all that stuff with so much ease of use and without being charged extra.

Blu-ray definitely. Only other reason why I bought the ps3, I also do media streaming as well but not as often. And i'm hoping to get Netflix sooner or later when I have time outside of college to actually watch movies and play video games without having to delete one completely out of my entertainment spectrum.

I either use mine mostly as a media centre or a PS One, There arent enough good PS3 exclusives to keep me playing the latest game imo.
