Default HD DVD / Blu Ray

Is anyone else following the new format wars?

I'm excited about the new high definition formats not just for the picture quality but the sound too.

So which do you expect to win?

I think HD DVD, HD-TV is already fantastic, and we all know the quality you can get from DVD's..

All I know is that both of those things are gonna cost a fortune...I'll go with HD-DVD for now, just cause the player currently costs 1/2 the price. Once the PS3 comes out though, that could give the Blu-Ray market a whole new dimension.

Blue ray is going way overboard, with new compression technologies comming out, blue ray will be REALLY overboard.

Neither.

Its just competition between the two companies.

Seriously, how many people have the cash to dump into on of these players? The 1080p TV's cost a pretty penny themselves, and then you literaelly need to have a 5.1/6.1 setup to enjoy the picture quality.

I mean not enough people have the stuff, its just too much too soon. DVD's are still matureing..
