AMD 780G mobo, AMD 45watt cpu, 2GB cheap DDR2 800, Hd, 300 watt PSU, Lite-On Blu-Ray ROM. DONE, I would rather have a HTPC then a stand alone Blu-Ray player any day.

I boaght a buch of HDDVD's and like them alot.

This Blu Ray thing is a joke and the devs should offer movies on both formats.
actually it affects the rich a whole lot more.

Say $1 = 1 pound (it's not but let's just pretend for this illustration). Suppose tomorrow, the value of the dollar drops so that $2 = 1 pound. That's a 50% loss. Now what would you rather lose? 50% of a million dollars (rich people) or 50% of $10,000 (poor people)?

And as to the OT,

would be hilarious if Sony ran blu-ray out of business because they tried to charge too much money for it. But I guess that $150 million dollar payout to Paramount has to come from somewhere, right?

Right now, blu-ray is getting owned by standard DVD. Until the players drop into the sub $100 range and the movie in the sub $16 range no one is going to buy it.

Um Paramount was HD-DVD backers up untill the end...

As for the price increase... um DUH! The prices were low on both sides due to the competitive market. Now that there is only a single HD Disc on the market theres not reason to have a price war. Do you really think that HD-DVD would have kept its low prices if it would have won? If you say yes then your a ****ing idiot, no nice way of putting it.

Sony says that next year we will see sub $300 players from them. Mind you that it doesn't mean that other manufacturers can't release cheaper models.

BTW, A quick glance at Amazon I saw movies ranging from $17 and up... I don't see too large of a price increase.

Yeah down here to. I have noticed how the players that where on sale, have now gone back up in price. There has been no sales on software though.

The Blu-ray media is ok price wise if a few dollars higher, the players are quite a ding.

You can get a feeling of how things are going by the rumor that Sony is actively trying to get MS to come out in support of Blu-ray on the 360 etc.. Gives me the feeling that even now after the killing of hd-dvd, the uptake of Blu-ray is somewhat lackluster.

They are comparatively cheap given their feature set. Quality wise, most reviews seem positive.
