No matter what some people say, HD-DVD and Blu-Ray are still competing and neither has won yet. Just look at the statistics, the market is constantly going from Blu-Ray to HD-DVD and back again.

I personally think Microsoft doesn't want to include a built in HD-DVD drive just in case it loses. And regardless of what the official interviews say, if Blu-Ray wins, the way Microsoft is releasing add-on peripherals, they could just sell a Blu-Ray add-on.

But we will see. Everybody wants a format to win already because this format war is only hurting consumers. It's good for prices as we can see but it's getting very annoying for customers.

And to lighten the situation, isn't it about time Sony got a format right? Betamax, Minidisc, UMD, etc. They have a great chance with Blu-Ray.

I don't see how this is hurting consumers at all. Tell you the truth this format war definitely is like watching a war on cable news - it ain't being fought in my living room, but I still get a front row seat. Seriously, I bet that the only players out there right now in any real quantity are the drives in the PS3 and the 360 add on. The movie crowd by and large is waiting for dual format to become affordable.

Sony finally got a format right... because they finally came up with a format that will able to made cross-platform. I don't own a television any more, and don't want one. That leaves my computer, which isn't getting a blue light drive until I can buy a dual format burner. As long as corporate allows that to happen then everybody wins.

I was specifically referring to how this format war is great for price competition.

But as for buying actual products, it is getting tedious for customers. Most people would agree that they want a finalized format that all movies will be released on instead of having to pick and choose because of studio support.

The specs for Blu-Ray aren't even finished and are still changing so some early Blu-Ray players may not work as expected in the future.

And some HD-DVD players recently needed a firmware update to enable web features on a new HD-DVD release.

How much does it suck paying that 5-6 hundred for a player that stops working in a few months .-.

We're off topic here. So does this mean that the 65nm 360's will be alot cheaper? If so, I think it's time for me to get my hands on one

And will they be out in the UK in fall too?
