Default Re: HD DVD Players Sold Out Nationwide This Weekend - Blu-ray In Trouble?

tdarst,

Welcome to our forum! How did you find us?

FWIW, I had to chime in here.... HD DVD players, which ARE very reliable and do work every time (despite slow load times I have never had to do a firmware update on an HD DVD player to get it to play any movie!) are not only less than $200, but were selling @ Walmart for $99 with five free discs this past weekend!

Movie titles... well, it's growing weekly and will continue to grow.... I am as impatient as you so I want them all NOW but that isn't going to happen.

As for concert titles... Sony BMg music has taken to releasing Blu-ray concerts with the new advanced audio formats that will/should beat out SACD and hopefully they will expand that into future MC audio, maybe even re-release the old classics, but again, I can't say how this will play out but it is something to keep an eye on.
