I'm waiting to see how the market responds to both. In about a year if one side performs better then the other, then I'll jump on that wagon.
So I say go for it!
With Blu-Ray and HD-DVD players in the market, should I take advantage of the holiday sales and get my hands on one of them? Getting the Playstation 3 would satisfy both my gaming and nex-gen DVD fix, but the chances of finding an available one are slim. (Unless I win that CNET Holiday Help Desk giveaway)
I honestly don't think there will be a clear "winner" this time around like the days of VHS vs. Betamax. I really want to take full advantage of my new HD TV but can't decide whether a a Blu-Ray or HD DVD player is a risk or a reward.
