Wow, wow, just wow...I can't believe so many folks, bitchin about a $99 HD players!
So what it's 1080i it's 99 DOLLARS!
Is this a snob stands? Too cheap for you blu boys? Would rather pay 1399?
If I had an extra 399 laying around I would have pick up PS3! Hmm probably not though, that can get me a few more A2's for Xmas gifts....

Revko1,

I bought the PS3 Motorsports 80G for $499, but had a coupon so got it for $399... It's my fourth Blu-ray player so far. I am only on my second HD DVD player though.... Something to be said about that, add to that my HD XA2 is STILL the top of the line player and I have like the longest lived current model of any high def disc player in the history of the formats!!!

Sorry... couldn't help the sarcasm...

I also hate this format war. It is going to inevidably force consumers to pruchase both pieces of hardware. Unless the seldom mentinoed :TotalHD" disc becomes more popular. It is not that much of a concerne for high end home theater consumers, but for the average joe it is doubling the cost. And high quality players are still over $500. Most people aren't going to spend that much. It just sucks that our industry can't work towards a more reasonable solution.

I'm not "bitchin" about a $99 HD-DVD player I'm just not buying it!
This war is Toshibas fault, Sony went to them to try & hammer out one format but they wanted all the royalties for themselves & refused.
Only if the war ends up in a draw & there are still exclusive HD-DVD only titles will I buy a HD-DVD player.
So no I'm not buying the fire sale player, I'll keep watching Blu-Ray on my PS3!

Moose,

While I understand the sentiment, I'd encourage you to buy one for $99 if you can.

Honestly Kenny there is really only 3 HD-DVD exclusive titles I want right now, Grand Prix, Batman returns & King kong & 2 of those should be released on Blu-Ray before long.

I'm not going to buy a bunch of HD-DVD's that will be out on Blu-Ray soon enough, If & when I do buy in to another format it'll be a full featured player not a stripped down fire sale product.
