i've just (in the last 2 days) decided on a hi-def format (bluray) and a player (a ps3 60GB or 80GB unit that i can get cheap) and i'd like to pick one up in the next month or so.

any bluray-specific thoughts/tips/etc.?

I don't think the war is as over as some people think, but we'll see.

I think what stamper means by rising prices is that if BD has the market cornered, without any competition they will be able to sell discs as a higher price now. I think a large part of the price drops we have been seeing (especially in hardware) has been both sides trying to make their product more fetching for the consumers.

Really? are you aware that the BD player specs have not yet reached their goal? And they're SLOWLY updating them. So all those 1.0 players that can't do web-content or PiP will be obsolete next year as it will be a minimum requirement for every player. Not to mention we're yet to see the first true region-free BD player. Meanwhile HD-DVD is both region-free, and the player specs are full.

it is inevitable so start buying your players now! Smile

i'm just waiting for criterion to switch to bluray to make it in-the-bag.
Yeah buy now so your region-coded non-web-enabled player can be obsolete within 2 years??

Rubbish. Anyone who believes this doesn't understand the far more complex manufacturing process. BD has claimed to have a 50GB capacity, but still very few manufacturing plants can do them - and those that can can't do them properly and the size has to be limited to about 45GB for data integrity. With that said, HD-DVD uses proven technology and has proven their 3-layer 45GB disc format. In short, BD is much more expensive, and if HD-DVD wasn't on the market competing right now you'd be paying much more for BD releases.

Still, most current BD discs on the market are single-layer; 25GB. And that's pretty close to dual-layer HD-DVD's at 30GB - but it isn't storage that makes HD-DVD better.

The sad fact of the matter is that as BD rapes the consumer more then HD-DVD, it looks like it will prevail in this "format war". So get used to paying for mandatory updates for your BD player every 18 months just so BD can use "new" AACS keys; while HD-DVD will never require a player update.
