When I get my PS4, I'm thinking of ditching my Blu-Ray player and only using the PS4.

Currently I have a SONY BDP-S370. It's brilliant.

I mainly use it for watching DVD's which it up-scales. They look brilliant.

Question is...how good is the PS3 currently as an up scaling DVD player? And any word on the capabilities of the PS4?

I'd say the PS3 does an excellent job of upscaling DVDs, I've always had good results.

As for the PS4, I'd expected to be equally as good, if not better.

I guess another factor is how loud the PS4 will run.

Don't want fans churning when watching a movie.

The PS4 has been reported to be running much more smoothly than a PS3! Running at quieter speeds and producing less heat compared to a normal PS3 Slim, which is mind boggling how they have done that.
