I know that; the deal was a good one. That's why I went for it.
There are 400 other titles available. I'd say you're fine. Universal and Paramount are also still HD DVD exclusive.
The problem is the outcome is much more up in the air than it was a week ago, IMO. I was willing to jump into the fray when I felt that things were at a stalemate that would go on for years, perhaps indefinitely. Now I don't feel that way anymore. It may, but it's much more in question in my mind than it was before. I'm just not willing to make the investment into the product under these circumstances. I'm much more concerned about the future than the present regarding this. I want my purchase to be fully utilized for years. At this time, I don't feel confident that the HD-DVD player will be. Time will tell.

Maybe in 2 years when I finish my basement and invest in a nicer HT setup things will have settled by then. Until then, maybe I'll buy a decent upconverting player for less $$$ as a band-aid.

Can't be the rest; Let others waste my time?
Owning success is the bottom line
