Which will be easy.

Like it's easy to find a used betamax player? Those things are rare and not cheap.

I'm just saying, it seems like a bit of a gamble to me. The format is dead, I don't see much reason to dump a bunch of money into it when you'll have a BD player in a few months if you don't already.

Trade in your HD DVD player if they're giving you the chance. One less device to have connected to your home theater or stashed away in your entertainment center, and you won't have to worry about being left with a pile of coasters if your player craps out and you can't find a replacement.

I guess if you just collect things like that as a hobby that's fine, it just seems kind of inconvenient and impractical.

That's why I'm looking for an Xbox 360 HD-DVD player. I went to BB the other day looking for one but they were sold out. They had that Toshiba HD-A3 for $99 and one of the guys told me that if I take it, he would give it to me for $79.99 because they only had 3 left. I really want the 360 player though.

I don't want to get you drunk, but, ah, that's a very fine Chardonnay you're not drinking.
