Re: HD Disc Format War Not Over By a Long Shot
I'll switch to downloading (at a quality level equal to HD - not 'almost as good as') when it becomes commercially feasable. Right now the infrastructure needs to be created from the ground up. Memory and hardware that support it, needs to be BOTH cheap and available (even with typical historical advancements in electronic technology this is still very far off.)
I got HD DVD because it was both cheap and reliable. Even now that Blu-ray has won, I've still no intention of buying one until both those criteria are met. It doesn't seem like that's too close to happening. Now that there's no competition, the speed of those improvements will slow down. I see this as a year away from now. I can wait.
