So, I have a question for the experts. Microsoft sided with HDDVD initially, but never produced a player with HD built in. Do you think it was for cost cutting purposes, or did they know HDDVD was the likely loser. If Blu Ray wins (and honestly they both are so similar that I cannot appreciate the difference to any great extent unless I was a video and audiophile), do you think an add on Blu Ray player would be produced by Microsoft? To me, it would be feeding Sony's bottom line and I do not perceive that happening. BTW, I own both formats.
In the end, though, even if HDDVD dies out I can still watch the movies I own
