New statistics have emerged that indicate over 10.7 million Blu Ray players have found a home in the US.  That would mean that, with approximately 7.5 million PS3s sold in the US, that the PS3 accounts for over 70% of the total Blu Ray players in the US.  Despite there being less expensive players now on the market, the PS3 remains one of the best values for a Blu Ray player at $399, complete with online to download firmware updates.
