HD-DVDs are still good

Remember when we said both formats were identical? Scratch that. The PS3 is as far as we know, the only web-enabled Blu-ray player, which allows for firmware upgrades. Most, if not all HD-DVD players have internet capability built in allowing for firmware upgrades constantly. Meaning, if you have a regular Blu-ray player then your video resolution won't look as good as any HD-DVD player.

This guy knows jack S*^t!!!
He claims that HD-DVD is region free and Blueray isn't.....thats crap!
BlueRay is also region free. You can get a BlueRay disk from anywhere in the world and play it on any BlueRay player. What sort of reporter is this guy if he can't even get his facts right!

Some people doesn't really look into the future don't they. Of course HD-DVD is still good now, but it will be dead down the line. If you haven't bought any HD-DVD or Blu-Ray. Just wait until Summer '08. It's much easier to make a choice then.

... and I'm not gonna buy a Blu-Ray machine until they've reached at least firmware 2.0 which in essence should really be 1.0 because it doesn't look like they have their full feature set yet.

What else is there left to say if you really think like that.

well sure they are rich enough to get whatever newer blu-ray players it will have, why are you poor trolls worrying for them?

if they aren't, they are probably not getting one yet (opps except for those almost FREE HD DVD $99 players....well, which, imo, refering to this topic, are delivering 720p/1080i anyways....how are they supposed to have better quality compared with 1080p?)...then hey, the average joes got no problem in this format war AT ALL.....because it is already over...

shut up trolls..=)
