I was thinking this stalemate would last a few more years, but I'm not buying a $180 player that may be relegated to upconverting standard DVDs in 12-18 months with no new content being sold. Now I'm going to wait and see how this all shakes out.
I'm bummed; I was really looking forward to using that player..
At 10 free movies the player was free, and you have your movies. There are 400 other titles available. I'd say you're fine. Universal and Paramount are also still HD DVD exclusive.
Every new year the BDA proclaims victory, here we are again.
