    From Gearlog:

    I'm kind of sad about this. I haven't bought either a Blu-ray or HD DVD player yet, but I was leaning toward HD DVD.

    Honestly there is another format in the works that will be cheaper to produce and to make the players and can hold more than hd or Blue ray suppose to come out later this year... I almost bought the HD DVD addon for my Xbox 360 glad i didnt ;)

    Is the speed that new technologies are being developed and marketed too fast for good business? HD DVD and Blu-ray have both been around for a while, but have only just recently started to become more popular. Now there's going to be a newer, better one? Are consumers going to be able to keep up?

    I am considering picking up a PS3 but i already have a 360 and none of the PS3 games at this point really appeal to me that arent on 360... So i would only buy it for blueray..... which right now i can't justify... maybe soon enough.

    Yep, the only reason I thought of buying a PS3 was to get the BluRay part of it along with one game that I do like playing on the PS3. Just couldn't bring myself to pay for it yet...
