Thank god they have exceptional software to keep gamers coming back ala ps2.

This is my favorite part of the article I read.

http://www.betanews.com/article/Blur...nto/1199841379

Quote:
BDA President Andy Parsons echoed that sentiment at the Blu-ray press conference Monday, telling BetaNews that it's normal for new technology to change and older hardware to become obsolete. He added that early Blu-ray owners can continue to do everything they could in the beginning: watch movies in high-definition.

Still, the confusion will only likely further alienate existing and potential customers of the nascent format. One key Blu-ray developer told BetaNews that although he builds discs for studios including Fox and Lionsgate, he did not buy a Blu-ray player for personal use.

When BetaNews asked why these manufacturers rushed out players that were not fully capable and potentially buggy due to their BD-J implementation, the Blu-ray partner pointed blame across the room to HD DVD. "We should have waited another year to introduce Blu-ray to the public, but the format war changed the situation," he said. HD DVD was already coming and the BDA had no choice but to launch Blu-ray.
ROFL, so they blame HD-DVD for having there **** together first so we had no choice but to release our beta crap on the public. Instead of pumping millions into buying there movie partners they should have put there money into developing a good player. If all the movie industry would have been neutral and made HD DVD & Blueray for all movies from the beginning HD DVD would have won hands down.

The answer to your question is no. "most of the players" are 1080p. 4 out of 5 of the current models.

I laughed at you because you are J6P. I have a question for you:

If I use a 1080i HD DVD player, and plug it into my 1080p TV, what am I seeing?

1080p because the TV is upscaling the image, but mosts ppl don't know that and when they see 1080i player they will not purchase it with their 1080P TV. Also half the HD-DVD players are 1080i not 4 out of 5. You need to start being realistic and not so bias all the time.

pff, 1080i to 1080p is called DEINTERLACING.

Current HD-DVD players:

1080i:

Toshiba HD-A3


1080p:

Toshiba HD-XA2
Toshiba HD-A30
Toshiba HD-A35
Onkyo DV-HD805


Ever learn math? You need to just STFU because you have a lot to learn. Don't come in here acting like you a damn thing and call people with facts " bias ". It's BIASED btw.

yes let's not count the other players that came out before the A3 but 1. Like I said stop being so bias and trying to make things look good. Also did I hurt your feelings that you have aim at insults...poor little baby.
