Toshiba and Microsoft have TOO MUCH riding on this. THEY MUST prove to the studios they are for real.

If they do - perhaps they cut out their own niche? I know a lot of people don't want that but look at the video game world and the success THREE format have.
Jerry what was the news that you heard? Is it still forthcoming? If it fizzled out I don't see the harm in telling what the plan was.

Basically it's like XBOX LIVE, you "buy once," but have access to it forever. So storage shouldn't be a big problem. The real problem will be a huge catalog and the ability to stream it.

Oh I see. I was under the impression that only some of the movies would be VOD while others would be download and stored.

Either way there are some limitations that make me wonder. Looks like we are going to have to wait and see though.

To be honest with you, I'm willing to place a wager that this xtremehd company can and will LAUNCH a satellite into orbit and sell the machines for less than $500 before ANYONE in the blu-ray camp gets a 2.0 SAL on the market for less than $500. Keeping in mind that the PS3 is NOT a SAL.
1)That whole paragraph is silly a blu-ray player purchased today is NOT useless.
2)Boy I'm glad I'm quick! I'll take that wager, should we say $50.00 ? A fair wager and everyone one here will be witness and make sure the other gets paid.
Shall we call it a wager than?

Sneaky sneaky... You shouldn't have been so eager... Seems I forgot about the Phillips that will MSRP for $349... Although I'm sure that thing will be a festering pile of crap just like pretty much everything else Phillips makes.

Besides, $350 is still too much for a no-name...

As for the useless comment, I'm just turning around onto a BD fan what you guys have been preaching to us HD DVD supporters.. What, my HD DVD player is suddenly going to explode and stop playing discs the instant someone stops making them?

Philips is not a no name brand but I agree it will probably suck so I'll exclude that one for you if you would still like to make that wager.

Wait a minute.. Ok. So will the phillips be 2.0 or not?? WTF! I just searched and saw another site that said it's only bonus view...

This whole profile thing is STUPID.

As for the no name comment... It's made by Funai. Aka no name.
