Default PS3 bluray player obsolete?

Ok folks im kind of new to blurays and i went and bought a sony bdps3700 bluray player. It obviously was lacking the 3d feature that i wanted since i have a 3dtv. So i took it back and bought my buddies 250gb ps3 slim with 6 games for 75.

After hooking it up and updating to 4.81 i put in bfg and there is a huge video quality difference from the dedicated to the ps3. I feel i may have screwed myself now because even playing with the ps3 settings it just does not match the quality of the sony s3700.

Maybe im missing a setting or something or just the obvious the newer bluray players arr just so much better

The PS3 was an outstanding blu-ray player. Unfortunately, mine was from 2009 and the blu-ray component crashed on me

My first Blu-ray player was my 80gb PS3. Sadly after nearly 6 years of constant video games and Blu-ray movies, it died on me

My PS3 is an excellent 3D player. Maybe you want to check the PS3's video settings. The RGB, Black Level, etc..
Or maybe do a factory reset.
