I'm still not gonna get Blu-Ray or HD-DVD so this does not matter to me, i would rather be gaming and watching movies on my DVD player.

you only say this because you clearly dont have an HDTV yet,If you did you would see how pitiful dvds look in 480p. I can barly bring myself to even look at a dvd.Ocne you have the proper tv then I can asure you,you will want hd dvd.

Stuff like this will just bring hoard of PS3 fanboys saying 'I told you so, we've won!'. It makes sense, if it does fail then you have a back up; that makes the 360 a double edged sword.

its all about choice. If blu ray fails, ps3 owners will have a dead format and expensive disks. If hd dvd fails, 360 owners can buy the addon or not buy either at all. Its their choice.

waiting for sony to realize blu ray will fail.
