I just ordered the HD-DVD add on for the XBOX 360 that should ship on 11/7 with the HD version of King Kong. Im looking forward to see how HD compares to regular DVD, and for 199.00 I don't think thats a bad way to start HD early.
Of course I'll be adding the PS3 with blu-ray, in another month, so I guess I'll be covered on both ends.
If anyone else is interested heres the link for the XBOX 360 HD EBGAMES

Just checking out some HD vs BluRay sites on Google, and I came upon this ad for Toshiba units, the "entry level" unit going for $499. The top of the line unit will have 1080p capabilities. The entry level will also have HDMI 1.3 and the enhanced color capablilties plus other stuff, but will be limited to 720p output. Interesting. How's this going to play out, eh? (I can say that, cause I'm also Canadian...)

Well, one of the two will become dominant, and the studios will win because people are willing to accept more and more restrictions on their fair use--like the studios excersizing their option to output in 540p if component outputs are used instead of HDMI.


Hey, it's been about a month since I've bitched about this stuff.

Yeah. It's pretty pathetic that you get more rights if you download people's captures of HDTV versions of a movie on the internet, opposed to actually buying it.

They have HDMI capture cards out now though - again proving that, whatever steps they take to limit what people do with the media they own are just a waste of money.

Got a link? I'd love to know what you can do with those things.

Do we have any HD-DVD owners here? I was (and guess still am) an early adopter and I've loved having the player. It's big, it's clunky, it's slow, but the picture and sound are amazing. Worth every penny, IMO.

Yeah, I have the HD-A1. I like it so far, though discs with even just a tiny bit of junk on the surface will skip or pause and then catch up. Other than that and the load times, I'm really happy to have movies in high-definition. There are plenty of movies I'll be wanting on Blu-ray, unfortunately (Sense and Sensibility and Kung Fu Hustle, especially), but I'd really rather have HD DVD win, so that's why I threw in my support, and why I keep buying titles.

Equipment like that will cause the studios to turn on the 540p crap in HDCP.

I hope HD-DVD wins, I hate Sony's stategy of making everything proprietery and charging more for it. I try not to buy Sony products for this very reason.
