Yes, only time will tell. Right now, we have an announcement, a bunch of words. Now, implementation has to take place. Lets watch and see.

Ok so we have a $150 HD DVD player, two studios supporting titles to play on it, we find out we get no disney, no fox, no warner, no lionsgate, no hbo, no a bunch of others. So why will people buy this player? For a little more than a hundred bucks more, you can get player that will play many more hd movies right now and even more later this year. I just can't see how this will help HD DVD, If they are to stay alive they had better get some additional studio's to go neutral or the party is over quick! In fact it is likely to late. My observations at CES would suggest this war is very close to being over. I think a little to late Toshiba.

Show me where I can get a blu-ray player for a little more than $100 over the cost of a $150 HD DVD player. The lowest I can find is $346 for a BDP-S300 on Amazon, which is more than double the price and nearly $200 more.

They are hoping to sell them to people who have no idea you can't get every movie you want on HD-DVD.
They will only see the prices next to the Blu-Ray players & buy the cheap one not knowing all the facts about studio support.
Most sales people at B&M stores don't know that Warners went Blu or know what that means to the format war so you know most of the customers don't either.

Well then, perhaps the Blu-ray side should match HD DVD prices. Right?

aah well do a google search or pricegraber and you can see a samsung 1200 for $229 or a 1400 starting at $249. I know bb had a player for around $280 not to long ago, not sure if thats still going on or not. My point is spend a little more even if you have to save for an extra month or two and get a player that might just have new software available longer than a few months or a year. I can not honestly direct anyone I know to buy one of these players knowing that the format's time is near the end. I have both a tosh hd dvd player and a panny bd player, I hate to see hd dvd die out but one format would be better for all, imo.
