Lame. To heck with Blu-ray and their costs. I'm perfectly fine with buying older movies on hd-dvd until there prices come down. And if they don't, I'll be streaming to my xbox on wednesday anyway.

Shame that even when Blu-Ray won the war, the consumer still loses. Blu-Ray players and movies are still so expensive.

I'm sort of glad HD-DVD lost...so many HD movies I wanted to buy before, but they always cost way too much.

DVD is fine for me.

Zip.ca here in Canada still has HD-DVD titles.

After watching Blu-Ray you notice the difference compared to DVD. The prices still suck though.

Definitely true, but I don't a high-definition TV at home anyway. When you buy a 19" Electrohome TV out of the bargain bin, everything looks bad. It doesn't even have A/V on the back.

It wouldn't make much sense to buy a Blue-Ray player then :/

I haven't spent more than 10 bucks on one. I am however stuck with older movies that were released in that format, but considering the HDDVD addon for my xbox was 40 bucks I can't complain at all. I'll start streaming netflix before I buy a blu-ray. Way more money than it's worth. The difference between blu-ray and hd dvd was nil when you add price into the equation. The one product better be a lot better when it cost 4 times as much as it's competitor.

Laptop + Chair good + Bru

eat that then for HD lol


I hear sony made Blu-ray, as to the analyses I have found sony are giving bundles out before christmas, this sounds like a good time to buy and also maybe after christmas is the best time but can be to late.
