    Blu Ray Vs. HD DVD

    It seems like Blue ray is starting to win the battle.
    I am looking at getting a new DVD player anyways along with a HD TV with my tax rebate check.

    it's the whole.. beta vs vhs all over again


    2 be honest.. the bl;ue ray tech is still not as it should be as far as recorders/players go.

    but... when u sell 100 million blueray plaers.. and only 11 mil hddvd ... u can see who's gonna sell more disks..

    Blu-Ray is the better technology, at least (only one that does 1080p I think)

    I bought a ps3 for my boy, oh man! what an ordeal! 1st, I got the unit from Blockbuster. I spent @600.00 bucks and got two games and a movie plus 20 weeks of free blu-ray and game rentals. What they did not tell me was that setup took about 4 to 5 hours. I 1st had to "update" the console which required getting a flash drive and spending the above mentioned hours on hold when the ps3 would not accept the update. Finally, at the end of the process, the unit would play movies, but not the games! Man was I pissed. returned it and went out and bought 'Rock-Band" for the kids. Bad experience. >

    Re: Blue Ray Vs. HD DVD

    I own the Xbox 360 and it does all the wonderful things a guy needs on it, even though I'm not sure if the Blu-Ray works with it.
    I would have to imagine it don't being that I do recall some info on how the PS3 offered it but not the 360.
    Can anyone confirm or un-confirm?
    Thanks!

    I belive that you have to buy a downloadable update. I just purchased one for my computer. I have "power DVD" on my computer and it cost $79.99 to upgrade to Hi-def! YAH!
