    We've got a Sony HDTV --- now that the format wars are over looks like my husband may be getting the PS3 he's been wanting for a while now. Just not any time soon.

    Both HDDVD and Blu Ray are going to fail though right. Regular DVDs are cool for most people.

    Kinda reminds me of MSFL and audio formats that were mainly bought by audiofiles.

    yeah regular DVD's are fine for most people, but for those who are putting money into big HDTV's and other high end home stereo set ups, they're gonna shell out an extra $10 or so for the Blu-Ray versions of movies. Essentially the goal of the TV networks to broadcast everything in HD, which they do, but eventually that will become the standard....so high def DVD's (blu-ray) will be more common as well.

    I dunno about that. The Blu-ray demo at Best Buy had me drooling. Jesus, looked absolutely gorgeous. Blu-ray players allegedly enhance your standard DVD's as well. Can anyone here vouch for that, though? I don't know anyone personally that owns a PS3 or a Blu-ray player.

    Personally it doesn't matter to me about which format wins, but the haughtiness and exuberance blue-ray fanboy's are expressing at Toshiba's news is downright irritating.

    But the same can really be said about any fanboys. So its not blue ray so much as it is fan boys that are irritating.

    I have heard that as well, howtodisappear. About the DVD enhancing features of a Blu Ray player.

    This HD stuff is making me a little batty. To fully appreciate an HD DVD (I guess I should just call them Blu Rays now), your HD TV is supposed to be no smaller than 50' which, to me, is fucking insanely big. And as I have not yet experienced HD TV at all, I'm inclined at the moment not to. Did I enjoy movies less when they were on VHS? No, but the DVD conversion was simpler and essentially the switch could be made at no increase in cost (in fact, the opposite - DVD players dropped in price much faster than VHS players).

    I have no argument with people who like and want HD content, but at this point it just seems more like a lifestyle choice than something to do out of necessity. I'll just buy the converter box next year when/if they make the conversion in broadcast. I don't like the idea of having to upgrade my TV AND buyi a new player and new media format all at once. I'm getting old and grumpy with technology. Ask Adam.

    Hah. I can appreciate getting old and grumpy about technology.

    We bought an HDTV three and a half years ago when our analog Magnavox crapped out after seventeen years of faithful service. Since we knew the technology would eventually switch over, we went HD early. We do not intend to buy another TV for some years down the road.

    When you first get HD, you sit there stupidly, with your mouth hanging open, watching programs you'd never watch otherwise, if they didn't look so beautiful. You get over that.

    Sports, however, are awesome in HD, and you become jaded and hate to watch them any other way.

    As for movies in HD, oohh yeah, after seeing that demo, I'm all over that one. We're just too poor for a PS3 right now.

    It was actually very entertaining. Definitely pushed the graphical limits of the PS3 the farthest (at the time).

    It did get high ratings from critics, I noticed but didn't look very entertaining to me.

    I wonder how many times C DUB YA climaxed while playing it.
