DVD. I do plan to get a PS3 at some point though, but whether I'll use its Blu-Ray option, I have no idea.

Currently DVD. I'm going to sit back and see how this format war pans out before making any decisions.

I'm not upgrading from regular DVDs until I see what eventually becomes more popular and/or widespread. It'll be a sad day when I do upgrade though, since my whole movie collection is DVDs, and I'll be set back just a few dollars if I have to buy every one of them again.

I think the HD DVD player is compatible with regular DVD's.

Currently, I have a DVD player. Though, I also have my Xbox 360, which is hook-up to my TV through an HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) cable and the picture is quite clear and sharp.

I don't when I'll upgrade, if I do, to HD-DVD or Blu-ray. But, I don't see it coming in time soon.

I as well will be waiting to see how the battle between the two formats pans out... They definitely need to come down in price before they become mainstream. I'd kind of like to see HD-DVD come out on top.

I've got a DVD player.

But all seems that Blu-ray will triump over HD-DVD. Even if it's more expensive.

Well, I guess they would release TFU on 8 track then. There would be quite some tapes.

Personally I think HD-DVD > blu-ray. Burn In Gizka Poodoo sony.

DVD,
and in relation to the Blu-ray vs HD-DVD thing - arent some companies developing players that are compatible with both of those and regular DVDs ?
and some developing combined blu-ray/HD-DVD disks ?

DVD. I still use VHS sometimes too. I'm not too bothered with HD junk at this point because honestly, it doesn't matter.

I'm waiting for the dust to settle on this fight, too. We don't get rid of our older stuff when the new comes along, though--it's just too expensive with all the music and videos we've acquired over 20-ish years. We actually still have vinyl LPs (33's and 45's) in a box in the basement and cassette tapes in a cabinet, and a turntable and cassette player to handle both. No 8-tracks, though, sorry. We have a dual VHS/DVD player to play those. When HD or Blu-ray has a good amount of material available on it and one of our current players just isn't doing the job anymore, we'll move to that format as well.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

You'll take me away from my DVDs kicking and screaming. Should one next-gen HD format win the war, and when the prices drop to current DVD prices, I might upgrade. The last DVD player I bought cost $60, and I get DVDs for $12-$15. The HD formats have a loong way to go.

That's always a possibility for me as well. But, at the moment, I don't think I am going to get it. Even though, they expecting to lower the price of it to $179 USD.

i've never watched a movie on either to know the difference. -_-


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

DVD(technically I use my Xbox), it seems it's been a little more popular answer.

remember though, it has also been out longer..so if one's DVD player (or game system)works fine, why bother buying something else?(unless your rich of course)

I think they should upgrade Wii's to play DVDs...

I'd go with HD-DVD cuz I have an Xbox 360, but I think they stopped making HD-DVDs, so I guess this all moot point then?

I only have DVD for now - I was waiting to see who won the HD DVD vs Blu-Ray war. Now that Blu-Ray has won, I'll end up getting a Blu-Ray player soon (probably a PS3)

I'm still using DVDs, and probably will continue to do so for quite a while. The new ones are just far too expensive at the moment. For example, at my local movie/music/etc. shop, a film tha costs around £7-10 may cost upwards of £20 on Blu-Ray. Now, irrespective of any graphical enhancements or special features, I find that a little absurd...

However, I voted Blu-Ray in the poll by virtue of being a PS3 user. It was quite gratifying to see PS3's medium trump that favoured by the 360!

I have DVDs, though I'd like to give the blu-ray a shot.

For now, though, I am satified with buying surplus Blu-Ray reader assemblies and turning them into purple laser pointers.

DVD. It's high enough quality for me. HD and Blu-Ray are a waist in my opinion.
