    If Blu-ray Wins Microsoft Will Support It :

    Just incase blueray does win the format war (highly doubt there will be a winner tho) your hd-dvd addons will be useless.

    I think people that goes both ways. People who buy the stand alone Blu-Ray players could have something useless if HD-DVD wins.

    Thats why I ain't buying Blu-Ray or HD-DVD until they can figure out a winner.

    HD-DVD is better though.

    We will just have to wait and see. Regular DVD movies look just fine to me (as long as you have good cables like HDMI)
    I think the porn industry adopted the HD_DVD format, which beleive it or not could really swing the tide since they make and sell more DVD's then most motion picture houses.

    Personally i will not be buying anything anytime soon.
    If i want movies in HD i can just bite the bullet and buy them on Xbox Live and watch them from my 360.

    Well, Blu-ray has the capacity of nearly 4 HD-DVDs and are even more expensive than them. (I think, so don't be rude if I am wrong)
    I would rather buy 4 HD-DVDs rather than buying a Blu-ray disk.

    Let me correct you a touch. Blu-ray does not have the capacity of 4 hd-dvd's. That is completely off base. Currently, the blu-ray stands at 50 gigs of storage space, while the hd-dvd is at 30 gigs comparativly at dual layered. There is speculation of a triple layered disc from hd-dvd that has 51 gigs of storage. In all honestly I think both medias will be short lived. HVD will defeat them both. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holographic_Versatile_Disc
    To completely honest, all storage devices that rely on moving parts such as disc or cartirdges is a doomed technology. Which is why an ipod can be so much smaller than a disc player and hold so much more.
