I dunno about that, he's pretty serious with 15,000$ projector, the DVD player he bought he imported from US cost him around the same I belive and I don't even wanna guess the price on his line doubler and other ****. He's not the type who rips and plays and such, when he uses a total amount of 50k$ (at least) of a pro home cinema in his basement, he's not the type who doesn't wanna dish out 30-50$ for at movie.

So I want to make the right choice here. Lets see about all three cool series I'm watching atm:

Coming as bluray:
Lost
Prison Break

Coming as HD DVD:
Heroes

That's 2 to 1. I only just started on Prison Break, I like Lost a lot, but I really, really also like Heroes. He's actually specifically said that he wants to watch the whole 24 series at some point and as far as I can see that's also coming to Bluray only. God damnit, decisions, decisions...
