Some time ago I felt that the sentiments in here on nVnews lied with HD DVD (not least because of evil chris I guess ), but what's it like now with many several firms having changed sides or so I've heard, Blockbuster selling Bluray exclusive etc., but I can see that I can only get Heroes on HD DVD. I want to do that, but not if Bluray is gonna win the format war and my dad ends up buying a bluray player instead. So...?
Should be another sale of lower end HD DVD players before Christmas for $99. Get one. If it "loses", who cares, it's $99. The discs you have don't explode either, you can still use them. The wait could be 2 - 3 + more years, might as well start enjoying HD now.
