Sorry to say you can see why I loved HD-DVD, none of this update crap it was all there right from the go at least my PS3 can update
Not turning this into a flame war but I'm just saying you know you shouldn't have to update movie players imho at the end of the day you are just watching a movie!
You still can just watch the movie without updating.
Upgradeable firmware and such is the way of the world now. It is actually a masterpiece idea that allows the addition of features and bug fixes. If you don't have upgradeable machines you are tied to whatever is current at launch. Same goes for HD DVD. what problem is it? The update will be free it will give extra features/stability etc.
What would you say to the 360 not being upgradeable from the off. No dash updates no added features etc. The principle is no different. You shouldn't have to update a 360, at the end of the day you are just playing a game
Off Topic a bit (still to do with upgrades)
Hey Bucko a bit of inside info for you here. If you have Sky at home there is a major software update in the next 24 hours. If you want it now Switch the box off at the wall and plug it back in while holding the backup button the front. Keep the button held in until all the 4 leds light on the front and the message updating system software comes on the screen. You get the update first. takes about 10 minutes and the box switches off when doneThis post has been edited by Chancer: Feb 26 2008, 11:38 PM
