    Why is it that everyone who tries to make there case for sony....fails to understand how unwidespread high definition movies. There is a reason why consoles and pc games didn't use DVD's when they initially hit the market. For one the cost of production, and two, everyone has that mindset of "I'll wait the price is going to drop."

    Yeah. I hate that mindset. That's why technology doesn't pick up ultra fast. If you have that attitude, then you never buy stuff. Enjoy VHS.

    Also people have this idea that upconversion DVD players actually "magically" add data to DVDs. Best Buy and Circuit City break people, sometimes.

    There's a big difference between HD-DVD/BluRay and Upconverted DVDs. One has HD textures and resolution, the other just has HD resolution. The textures are still SD on DVD.

    I'd just like to point out that every system priced over $400 to ever be released has failed. It doesn't matter how powerful they were or how much potential they had, they all failed.

    We have no idea how this idiot adjusted for inflation, either.

    I tend to agree, no matter how powerful once you hit PC price range the rules change. Would I spend $600-800 bucks on a BlueRay DVD or HD DVD Player, sure when the standards have been worked out. Would I spend 600-800 on a video game machine just because it can play BlueRay or HD DVD, no. Generialized hardware never does as good of a job as dedicated hardware and if you are nuts about your home theater then you wouldn't buy a PS3 for your DVD player. Now you might use the argument that well the PS3 is dedicated hardware for gaming so it's better than a well configured PC. I would say no to both the Xbox 360 and the PS3 with that arguement. They are all running a variation on PC operating systems so they aren't even really dedicated hardware for gaming. A PC can do everything a 360 or PS3 can do if you plug the right stuff in.

    No offense, but if you are willing to spend $600-$800 on a blu-ray player during a format war....youzadummy.

    Especially considering within months you can probably get it for half that price.

    as I said I would spend it when the standards are worked out. When DVD became a standard I paid more than 2k for a DVD player when my PC could have played DVDs for $500 bucks in HW. My point is no-one who really wants a blue-ray player and has hardware that can really display 1080p in true resolution (not scaled) is going to buy a PS3 as a Blue Ray player or an Xbox360 as an HD-DVD player. They can afford the real thing now and not wait. The smart ones just are waiting to see if Blue-Ray or HD-DVD becomes the standard. They don't want another beta-max.

    What the hell? I bought my NES and SNES for $100 each. I bought my PS1 for $150. The most I ever paid for back in the day was a Turbographix 16 at $189. Where are you getting these prices? I still have the price stamped on the boxes. I also agree. Any system in history ever priced for $400 or more has failed. Aside from the comp, and the PS3 isn't even close to what a computer can do.

    Bah, that's ridiculous. If Nintendo can make a system lower than a lot of those launch prices without inflation even added, that's the right price.
