Dynamic Menus
Changeable Elements In the DVD
Java Based Elements in it.
Good Quality
Cheaper then Blue ray.
some disks backwards compatible with DVD (Double sided)

Yeah if i was just going bandwagon i'd be on Blue ray because im a huge apple fan and love h264 (I swear the crispest codec EVER(Go watch some mac vs pc commercials on apple.com they look better then hd even at Standard Def) But i still say HD-DVD has more going for it

HD-DVD has nothing going for it, from botched deals for cheaper models, to fewer sales than Blu Ray(it's been proven that a movie that is on both has sold better on BR.) Apple is the Ultimate "bandwagon" company, how many people have ipods just because it's the "IN" thing?? It is clearly nowhere near the best mp3 player, but it was sleak and stylish so everyone wanted one even though it is very expensive and has less features....Also look at the IPhone....Has nothing on some other options that are already out, yet get ignored because Apple is the "IN" company when it comes to hip gadgets...

Thank You, how many "new" franchises has Nintendo created in the past 5 years, compared to Sony??? i would say it is around 5-1 in favor of Sony for originality and fun gameplay.

You like HD-DVD but hate Blu-Ray? Can you give a specific reason?You must have alot of cash or friends if you hve used multiple Blu-Ray players since they still go for $700US a pop.

Blu-Ray and Sony are fr from being the IN thing. So many people bash Sony make predictions of it impending doom. Yet not a single one can come up with a better arguement other than price and lack of games. Games are coming and the PS3 is worth the price. You do not like the price? Well don't buy it.

Nintendo is out of the loop when it comes to innovation these days. Also no nintendo was not the first commanythink of or even produce the first motion sensing controller.

This is the only reason you need to buy an XBox 360.

Oh, that and Dead Rising. Cause chasing zombies around with spades is much fun. Besides that, I'm happy to stick to the Wii. I'll be too busy having Joygasms over Metroid Prime to care what you think. And of course I'll be playing Ikaruga.

I'm not a fan of the PS3, more because I'm a keen importer, and BluRay is region locked. HDDVD isn't, therefore it makes importing that much easier. And I don't need to buy a Jap PS3.

So HDDVD ftw!

I love my PS2, if only for Katamari Damacy, Guilty Gear, and Ikkitosen Shining Dragon(can't wait for the release date...).

Dude you didn't even prove that his statement was wrong.
You went off topic on Apple, I don't see how that justifies anything...
