I am that guy too.

Got a PS3 on day one ($3000 - ouch) the XA1 on day one, samsung bdp1000, XA2 I got a little later. I even got an iPod before they came out - MAN was I floored.

I figure the readers want to know if the hottest gear is worth the money.

Too cool! Sometimes if we want something bad enough on launch day (like your $3,000 PS3 ), we sometimes pay a hefty premium for it. But I, like you, have no regrets.

And in your business, like you said, the readers do want to know if the latest gear is worth it.

We beat other AV publications to the punch (Home Theater, Sound +Vision and others) by 90 days or more with a 5500 word-home theater oriented PS3 review.

It helped us become a leader in blu-ray reviews.

The HD DVD and Blu-ray guys have been REALLY good to AVRev.com and hopefully they feel the same way back.

We know however that they will not be spending $100,000,000's of dollars on ads forever. I just hope they keep it up for a while!!!

Seriously, the more and more I think about it - I don't see an end to the format war. I see cheaper players and a PS3 vs Xbox vs Wii type situation. Ask anyone in the gaming industry if they mind multi-platform? They are ALL getting rich.

Well actually Microsoft has never made a profit on the Xbox or the Xbox 360 & Nintendo just started making money again on home consoles with the Wii, before that it was pretty much just the DS as the gamecube didn't do much last generation & Sony is still making their money on the 120 million PS2's that are still out there while they are waiting for the PS3 to hit it's stride, that's where Sony outsmarted Microsoft as they dumped the original Xbox as soon as the 360 was released.

Also if I have the PS3 & want a driving game I can get Gran Turismo where the 360 has Forza Motorsports, Even with the exclusives there are plenty of shooters, fighters, driving games & etc on both systems so you don't have to own both systems to get the games you want.

Now if you want any movie made by Sony you have to own a Blu-Ray player because you know Sony won't be releasing any of it's movies on HD-DVD.

I hope Blu-Ray wins since that's what I own but I think there really needs to be a winner in the format war.
If there is a clear winner I think it will hold off the downloadable movies for a long time.
