Damn, I might have to be a little late or work tommorrow. I wonder how many people are going to see this by tommorrow...

I'd buy an HD-DVD player just to play the 2 or 3 movies I can't get on BR. That's definitely a sweet deal.

2 or 3? Are you aware there are more HD DVD titles than BD?

Yea, but of the 100's of titles they have, there are only going to be like 2 or 3 that I would actually get that I couldn't get from blu-ray.

There is a very very small selection of movies that are out on both formats, most of them are exclusive to one side or the other. Then again, maybe you simply have extremely refined tastes in movies.

I just saw this on slickdeals.

I have no need for one of these, but I'm half tempted to get one.

I was all hyped to get one until I read it doesn't do 1080p. Im going to wait until one of the other players that do 1080p comes out at a low price.

lol @ eproductwars. Amazon sales tracking and inventory searches are not an accurate way to get a count. Addtionally, if you were following current events you'd know that all the Paramount releases are still available on BD via Amazon. They don't count as they are *no longer produced*. When they're gone they're gone.
