kyhwana2: Don't bother buying a BD player if you only have a SD TV. Buy a cheap DVD Player.

Ignore the other people telling you to buy a BD player now, since by the time you upgrade your TV, BD players will be cheaper/have more features, etc.

My logic being you're spending $199 vs $99 for a Blu-ray player, and then you won't be re-purchasing Blu-rays to upgrade your DVD collection later.

Or, alternatively, when you do get an HD-TV you've already got a decent library of things to watch on it.

The new firmware that supports 3D TV is now out (well it seems to be out) and I did see it on a Slim in the Wellingotn Sony store playing 3D TV on a preproduction 3D LED TV. Looking at the Sony site there are no different firmware versions for the fat or slim so I presume the fat will also do 3D.

The latest firmware supports 3D in games only, and its for both slim and fat models.  Blu-ray 3D support will come out towards end of year.
