I did not say HD-DVD was dead nor did I say that Blu-Ray
will not be the ultimate winner.
It is a fact that Blu-Ray is more of an item right now
because of the PS3 and not that it is a dedicated Blu-Ray
Dvd Player.
I am hoping that both formats stay around so that the
consumers can have a choice. Also another reason is that
if there is only one choice what happens to the loser?
That is, the people who bought the Blu-Ray or HD DVD and
one of them is not around anymore? Who takes care of the
I know some one will be around and I bet there will be
a lot of problems getting those Blu-Ray or HD players
repaired when the time comes.
Will they make disc's that can be played in both formats
if they deceide that only one format deserves to be around?
We shall see.

I think that it is unfair that HUGE companies such as
Sony and Toshiba take advantage of the consumers impulse
buying habits until a distink format has arrived in the
market place.
My favorite choice is HD-DVD, but
I have to concede that whoever, wins when the price is
right I will buy one of these BLU-RAY/HD-DVD.

My comment was to Anthony, who stated "Also HD DVD is pretty much dead."
I could say the same thing about Blu-Ray, but I won't- Because it is not true. Just as it is not true that HD DVD is pretty much dead.
I made my choice on the two formats based on a lot of things. None of my reasons were based on who I thought would win the format war.
Even if HD-DVD dies tomorrow I still have one of the best upconverters made in the Toshiba HD-XA2.
