There are a dozen or so movies I hope to pick up at about the $10 mark.  [ fingers crossed ]

ill be snagging an a35 when they hit  $125 or less. , and ill grab the nice toshiba blurry player when its on g2+ and sub $300 (probably summer 2009 ?) ....as it's 99% likely to offer legacy hd-dvd support anyways

sad day, but inevitable once warner sold out on their brothers (since uni/paramount didn't immediately counter with combo only d/d new releases) .
 Sad

the loser is definitely the average consumer who doesn't know better {yet}.  enjoy your bloated drm  , high prices, and inability to ever have  combo/twin format.   enjoy telling your kids they can't get the blurry version even though timmy across the street has it, because you can't afford to also buy the normal version to play in their bedroom or in the car.

Excuse my ignorance!  Why are the studios deciding to go BLO-WRAY?  I thot that technology was more expensive to burn the durn dvds?  Is there any difference in the quality of the end product?

1, because sony bribed them to by covering blowray manufacturing costs, etc, and it offers far more anti-consumer/pro-studio DRM
2, not really
