I just got notification that Netflix was going to go BluRay exclusively starting at the end of February, and that my current HD-DVD selections would be changed to standard format by the end of the year.
Well this just sucks. I hope prices for Bluray players drop to something reasonable by then.

Yep, we have discussed this in a few other posts. Best Buy just announced they are going with Blu Ray for their primary recommended hardware/software, following Netfix announcement. They said it is clear who has one the battle. They will still offer some HDDVD stuff, but won't push it hard.

So if Bluray finally wins majority, will the HD dvd backers come onboard and then have to re-release all the movies already put out on HD dvd?
I wonder if it really will ever die or just hang around anyway.

Laserdisc was quite neat. A foreshadowing of the dvd era.

The first movie i saw on Laserdisc was at the RadioShack store my father used to manage decades ago. It was M.A.S.H. the original (the movie, not the store).
