Not for me though, I will get a Blu-Ray player one of these days.
You know, it's funny. I too am planning on going blue ray hopefully within the year(will require a new monitor), but I also have seen high def movies playing at Best Buy on my few trips to snag something that I didn't want to wait on shipping for. I can't believe that I'm going to say this, but I don't really like it.
I think for some films especially it's too much. Film is an escape, or should be in my view, and I found it rather distracting feeling like I was actually in the room Pirates of the Caribbean. It had become less film, and more cosplay, very expensive cosplay, but still I found it distracting. I'm sure that I'll get used to it.
