CORY I OWN THE BLUE RAY PLAYER DOORSTOP?

In reply to: LG Unveils Combo High-def Disc Players

This format war sucks and the only reason I bought the Sony is because at 68 years old I dont have time for the chips to fall ha ha also it was a lifetime Wish to have a little movie theater in my home that was as nice as a movie theater so I had to have my last toy. It would be awsome if discs were on one side blue ray and the other side h.d. happy weekend steweee

Yea that's great

The Blu-Ray/HDDVD player and total HD disc seem like great ideas and all but sooner or later one of the formats has got to die. I'm willing to bet Blu-Ray will still win simply because of the sheer number of Blu-Ray players the PS3 will put in peoples homes. But hey that's just my opinion, I don't care if Blu-Ray fails i'll buy the HDDVD player for the 360.

HDTV was delayed a few years because for format wars, the FCC considered many different was to get HDTV before approving the current ATSC standard. John
