This is all fine and dandy, but why would the consumer want both choices...I mean jesus who buys both HD-DVD and BR movies. I don't understand this logic....your forcing 2 formats into the industry when only one should be standard.

wow...dual for PC...must cost a bit.

I would say the drive alone probably cost around $500-600 bucks.

exclusive camp, i wish one of them would just win already so i know wich to buy, i have a strong feeling it will be blu-ray, but you never know, crazy stuff can happen

Unless you didn't mean HP was exclusive until now, you're wrong. HP has been a long time backer of BOTH formats. They announced their support for HD-DVD a long time ago.

I had a 360 well before the PS3 came out. I bought the HD add on and have been buying and enjoying HD movies for some time. Then I bought a PS3 and in turn also bought some Blue-Ray movies cuz they have some titles I wanted that were not on HD. So yeah it's possible to buy both formats ^^. There is no need for only one format, it's not 'highlander' in dvd land ya know ^.-
