Other than one is a floundering, standardless and ultimately dead format...

So get the HD DVD version.

HD DVD's are generally higher quality as far as SQ/PQ. Whenever confronted with a choice, HD DVD wins.

Just wait another 3 weeks and these numbers will change dramatically
You are aware The Matrix trilogy launches the same day as the completely gay PotC right?

I'm going to go with a high-priced boxed set of three of the biggest movies ever.

~$70 for all three Matrix movies plus a ton of extras.
~$50 for both Pirates movies.

Hmm...

There isn't that much of a price difference

Except you don't exactly have to buy both of the PotC movies at the same time... nice try though.

How does that change the price of the movies together?

Link me to where I can buy Matrix (1) on HD-DVD only. Please.

See... some people love the first (both Matrix and PotC), but dislike the sequel(s)... so for them, a non boxset is best since they have choice... isn't that what you anti-PS3 people are always going on about? Choice?

Then CHOOSE to buy it on SD or not at all. I really don't get what you're driving at here.

I am getting at the fact that if you like the first PotC and not the second one, no problem, buy only that. With the Matrix, if you enjoy just the first one... OOPS SOWWY!

Actually I wasn't aware of that. It's going to be a competitive week then for both camps. Can't wait to see how the numbers turn out...

I know that week i'll be supporting both camps cuz I'll be picking up both POTC titles and 40-year old virgin on HD DVD so we'll see what happens

afaik both versions of planet earth are made exactly the same regarding video and audio. Both use vc-1 and dolby digital surround sound; so i think the quality is basically the same with both formats.
