It'll be interesting to see if it changes after the PS3 launch. I think in North America, there have been some that think the PS3 is what helped make up the deficit so quickly but others that think it was mostly due to more new releases (around the first of the year) being in blu-ray. I wonder if Europe will help determine that or not?

I would imagine that even if it were 1 / 10 people who get the PS3 and buy a blu ray disc, that would start to help tip the numbers in their favor even more. I wouldn't even consider going out and buying a player right now because of the two formats, but since I have a PS3 it is a nice bonus to get a HD movie. I think that type of mentality will help them out a lot.

It's not helping HD DVD's cause that it's not being promoted in retail channels. At Best Buy they have two Blu-Ray players hooked up to HDTVs with not a single HD DVD setup to be found. Makes it a lot easier to push it on the ignorant masses who probably don't even know HD DVD exists.

I'm not sure about our local Best Buy. I know they have the blu-ray player setup but I'm not sure about HD DVD. At Circuit City they have both setup though.

If BR wins, Sony will keep the prices high. That's a given. I think the only thing that has BR still rolling are the good titles and that's it.

I simply have more support for Blu Ray has IMO they have by far a better movie selection as opposed from HD DVD. I made a thread about this few months back and my opinion stll holds strong to this day, even the upcoming list of blu ray releases is more promising to me than the HD DVD release, but only time will tell I guess

I do not understand why so many of you are referring to high prices? If you are referring to expensive players then ya I understand, but in terms of movie pricing they are just about the same. Only cases when BR movies are signficantly higher is when it is a dual layer BR Disc, such as Kingdom of Heaven and Alien vs. Predator (Greaat movie btw ) otherwise their usually around the same price point if the movie is released both on blu ray and HD DVD

HAHAHAHA everyone has different opinions, glad to see you like expressing yours in detail. I have the Alien Quadrilogy, I've seen Predator 1st one, I enjoyed it as well with the first two Aliens but I did not enjoy the last ones so much.

It is a shame, however, that the misinformed dip**** public is going to casue movies to look inferior the next 10 years until a new format.
I prefer my real surround system... I think the fake surround is overrated, and yes i've heard them b4. I was never a big fan of Bose to begin with. they sound nice, but not my cup of tea!

I really liked AvP. I've watched it several times but in general, I just love those type movies. It's the same with horror movies. Most people trash them but they're among my favorites.
