    i'm trying to decide whether or not to buy a ps3 or 360 and one of the key factors is the next format. "THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!!!"

    anyways, it's been compared to the revolution of beta-max vs. vhs. i don't want to buy anymore regular dvds because i will upgrade soon anyways. so....

    what is going to be the next product and when will it prevail. i'm sick of waiting. what will the movie rental places end up choosing?

    Where's the "I don't give a shit because Philips (I think) has developed a universal decoder" option?

    blue ray is the better format (faste frame rates, tripple layer) but hddvd is getting more backing.

    beta was the better format and vhs won... so we'll see what happens.

    i've been debating ebaying my whole DVD collection myself...

    but the task of getting a list of evey dvd i own is a week-long project.

    i have no use for ps3 until GT5 comes out.
    i have no use for x-box until sony merges with microsoft.

    All that said, when the time comes, i hope blue ray wins out, as the companies i like are backing blue ray more than hdddvd. but who knows... if one fails, then they will probably move on to the accepted format.

    All that said, i'm not buying either until 1 is standardized, or both prevail as dualing formats.

    so you just aren't buying the next format until one is declared "official". i'm just wondering what "blockbuster" is going to carry.

    From what I've read, blu-ray doesn't look as sharp as hd dvd. Sony and blu ray ftl, they can all rot in hell.
