Plan to buy one. I'm already blown away by the HD movie trailers and clips from Marketplace as it is. Just don't have the dough to buy it right now.

Choose the wait for the war to be over option, but I'll never buy the HD-DVD add-on, I dont need another hideous white piece of tech in my entertainement center. I need to buy a 360 shell, and Nintendo needs to release those black Wii's already!

I dont hate all white things, just white consoles
:cheers:

I love the HD-DVD player. Even as I type this my dad is watching MI3. The detail you get is just amazing. You could never buy a more quality product.

I don't usually purchase a large number of movies... only the really good select few that I just have to get. That being said, I'm waiting until there is a larger selection of movies available.

i voted "NO (other reasons)" ... cause as of now they just aint worth buying cause the differances will be minimal to none (in image quality) unless u got a super fancy HDTV... plus i think the biggest competition of hd-dvd/blu-ray is the standard dvd format itself since there aint no major leaps forward from standard dvd to say hd-dvd/blu-ray like there was from VHS to DVD... this is main reason i dont think the public will adapt to hd-dvd/blu-ray anytime soon... plus i think it will be many years (atleast 2-3years+) before the "average joe" will actually get a HDTV cause of prices are still overall to high ... so until that happens i dont think bluray or hddvd is even worth bothering with.... plus not to mention we dont even have a clear winner between the two format either.. and prices are still to high for them.

No - not until they start carrying just the drive for $100 or less. The stupid $200 bundle is a waste.
