Ah yes, who not start a poll/topic on something very controversial and perhaps pissing off more people than the new Star Trek film - the format wars...

*they hang dominion_ruler where he stands*

Anyways, just curious to see if anybody is into it, or could care less right now about forking out bucks. Hopefully I am not the only loser that actually owns all 3 - includes an LG BLU RAY/HD DVD player, an XBOX 360 HD DVD player, and about 6 regular DVD players (keep in mind that Blu Ray and HD DVD players also play DVDs too)

Ready, set, go...

Just standard DVD. I won't get anything else until it's determined which format wins or we get reasonably priced HD DVD/Blu Ray players.

Yeah, a lot of people are going to wait...I didn't have the patience so I got the LG combo player, and spent too much on it :argh:

I've just got DVD. I'm waiting for either the format war to be settled or for a reasonably priced dual player (unlike the LG you plopped down more than a few pretty pennies for) to come out.

Standard DVD, and I'm not touching the new formats until one of them comes out a clear winner. I don't want to drop money on a player and discs only to have the other format drive my format choice out of the market.

I read an article recently that predicted the war to continue for about another 18 months at least.

On the other hand, I think it's Toshiba that is releasing a sub-$200 HD-DVD player (just in time for the holidays, imagine that). So advantage HD-DVD at the moment.

Just good ole DVD for me. I don't even have an HD-TV so getting an HD-DVD or blu-ray player would be pointless right now.

Yes, the prettiest of pennies.

Another advantage to waiting is that I've laready had to update my hardware once for newer discs to even play on it - it can get a bit frustrating.

Good ol' DVD. I've never been one to run out and buy the latest tech. For one thing, it's always too expensive in the beginning. For another, I like to let them work the bugs out first. Heck, I just got my first cell phone with color screen and camera less than a year ago.

Actually if u own a PS3 (which run on BlueRay) and Xbox 360 (which run on HD DVD), i reckon u can safely say u own all 3. ;)

Well, the 360 only does HD DVD if you buy the HD DVD external drive. ;)

Yep, so while people say the PS3 is more expensive than a 360, thats true only if you don't care about HD movie content, in the end they run the same price.
