    It does peek my interest. But as a game console first and a PSP extender second and as a Bluray movie player third.

    I am having too much fun with my 360 at the moment though.

    I didn't word that was clearly as I wanted to. I meant to say I don't think BR's relationship to the PS3, not so much the PS3 as a whole, was the reason he was jacked.

    The lack of launch titles has been an issue for the past few "next gen" consoles, with the second wave games being the real building blocks for their respective consoles. Of course, here it is late June and no real wave of new games for the PS3.

    Of course, the extremely stripped down E3 this year is not helping the gaming industry at all.

    Bottomline, we all want this silly thing settled. The sooner the better for everyone.

    I'm curious why you even are concerned with the format war then. If movies are the THIRD factor with the PS3, that tells me that you're more interested in gaming, which isn't really on topic in relation to Blockbuster. I still don't have a game for my PS3, and probably won't for some time. I bought it solely for its Blu-ray capabilities, and have been thrilled with both its performance and Sony's continued support.

    BTW Unfiltered . . . I didn't know that version 1.81 was released until just last night. Apparently it corrects a problem with the RGB video setting that was being toggled off without user input. Odd that it takes a 110MB update to fix it, but that's apparently all that is in there.

    Yeah, I stumbled upon it last week when trying to grab some HD trailers from the PS Store, the system made me update it. (At 2 in the morning, I was VERY surprised it took 30 minutes to download 100MB.)

I bought the cheapest Blu-ray player on the market, which just so happens has more features than a similarily priced HD-DVD player.

    go's real problem is that he feels that Blu-ray = Sony and Sony alone. This is not correct. While obviously the biggest benefactor of the war, Blu-Ray has a much broader support in both studio AND hardware manufacturers. Toshiba has been the real bully in this war. They are the only company selling HD-DVD players right now, and by trying to undercut Blu-ray to save their format, they've done nothing to encourage new companies to enter the marketplace now that there's no profit to be made. Universal, HD-DVDs only major exclusive studio is currently in a PR tailspin thanks to poor performance at the box office, and now they're pumping out substandard discs every week. They are consistently rated near the bottom on average picture and audio quality on a number of review sites.

    I am for the BEST POSSIBLE quality in HD video. As it stands, Blu-ray offers it, and HD-DVD doesn't. (And the rumored expansion of multiple layer HD-DVD discs indicate that they might not be playable on any currently manufactured HD players.)
    I too have been doing a lot of research and I have to agree with dgrycan & co. Blu-Ray is better quality and I have now changed my mind to buy a PS3 and not a 360. 1080p is where it's at!!!
