    You dont have to worry about that Cruzer. HD-DVD will dye out by the end of the year. Or sooner.

    Buy a PS3 and get the best of both worlds. Gaming and DVD watching.

    PS3 has blu-ray and could play your PS3 games.

    stoopid blu-ray!!

    i already had an xbox 360, so getting the hd-dvd drive was a fairly cheap upgrade.

    at least i haven't invested much in movies... i have 3-4 HD-DVDs. looks like blu-ray is my destiny.

    No, PS3 online gaming sucks from what I hear. I'll stick with my 360 Live.

    I voted HD already.

    So what are the differences then?

    There are no real differences in the format. The Blu-Ray disk is larger in capacity, but HD-DVD is working on multiple layered disks that are even larger...so that's kind of a moot point. The reason Blu-Ray is now "winning" the war is that it is backed by more studios. But it's also way too expensive still, so it'll be a while before people fully embrace it.

    Is HD-DVD considered evil? It's being represented by a red saber...

    I've got a 360, so if we get a better TV, I'd rather just get the HD drive and be done than drop $500+ on a system with games I can already play on the 360.

    What makes you think HD-DVD will be gone Turo?

    Sony created Blu-Ray and to this day, no original Sony created format has lasted.
    The formats are pretty much identical Cruzer.

    I think Universal is currently the ONLY studio that is backing HD-DVD. Everyone else has gone to the blu side of the force.

    HD-DVD alll the way!!!! I've only got about 6 HD dvds but I think they are fantastic. As far as blu ray titles go the only ones I think I'm really missing out on are the POTC movies and the X-MEN trilogy. HD has the matrix so I'm happy with that! I played my buddies PS3 and I have no desire to get one or any other blu ray player for that matter!!! I think the exclusive titles for 360 are much better. In the end if blu ray wins the star wars battle then I guess ill just have to break down and get a blu ray player.

    See, I hate that about Blu-Ray. I hate that it has a "brand name" and not a more generic sounding name like VHS, DVD, or HD-DVD.

    To answer a couple questions...
    Both HD & BR have the same picture specks, and almost identical audio, so from this point of view they are equal.
    Both have horrible DRM built-in, not slapped on at the last minute like DVD.

    HD DVD's main advantages are :
    1 its cheeper to produce for manufactures
    2 Its format was much better defined at time of release

    Blue Ray's advantages
    1 Much bigger capacity per layer & more layers
    2 Its got the movies.

    If you get a PS3 you can update the BR drive's firmware to the latest standard and delete point 2 from HDDVD's list.

    My vote is for both formats to fail, the DRM is too brutal.
    Just wait till you try to play your own home movies on these players via HDMI, and get a message from your TV saying you dont have the right to watch this movie. This has already happened to people.....

    Anyway, my 2 cents.

    From my understanding, Blu Ray is 1080i resolution. This means it is an interlaced picture relying on the line doubler in your tv to reproduce all 1080 line of resolution. The newer tvs are 1080p or progressive scan capable. The Blu Ray is 1080p which will reproduce all 1080 line at the same time. This is like the difference between a regular dvd player and a progressive dvd player. so basically if you have the right hdtv and the right cable connections, Blu Ray should have a superrior picture.
    On a lighter note, I believe it was the porn industry that finally decided the VHS/Beta debacle by embracing the VHS format. Only time will tell this time.

    Actually, both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray provide 1080p. Some of the older HD-DVD players are only 1080i, but that's just the old players.

    That is good to know. I worked in the industry for 12 years before switching careers about 2.5 years ago.

    You can download them in HD already via torrents. Sorry Seeker, but what games on the PS3? Blu-Ray has the optimal quality, if you can tell the difference, so I'm going to have to vote BR. I wouldn't be surprised in the least if we see a dual format release, as well as a special special edition.

    Vote wisely!
