You just have to be smart with your purchase. When I read about Toshiba removing its backing of HD-DVD and the format war being over, I had a feeling that consumers would panic and hock their stuff on online auction sites. I was right!
You can say all you want about HD-DVD being dead, but I can't afford the price of admission for Blu-Ray yet. So, I went bargain hunting to get the HD experience for less money - and I got it! I bought a Toshiba A30 HD-DVD player (1080p output, DVD upconverting) off Ebay for $80 - and it included the HD-DVDs Transformers, the Bourne Trilogy, and 300. I know that HD-DVDs will no longer be produced, but there is still a large library of HD-DVDs out there.
I will be getting a PS3 - at Christmas - and will buy Blu-Ray movies then (ones that didn't come out on HD-DVD). In the mean time, I will enjoy HD content at a far, far cheaper price of admission
