    The nipples on my Batsuit are at attention. (By the way, why did the chicks NOT have hard nipples on their suits in that POS?!?)

    Oh, and my sphincter is riddled with delight.
    Oh, heaven.

    I just got an email about 20 minutes ago and it's just another sign in the death of HD-DVD. Hundreds of HD-DVDs are on sale at Amazon.com. After visiting the site I found out that ALL of the HD-DVDs are at least 30% off.

    This on the heels of the Xbox HD-DVD price drop is too much. This format war is as good as over.

    BluRay FTW

    But the Blu-Rays are typically 30% off as well...

    I also got an Amazon email today with a buy 2 BR's, get one free.

    I only found 2 titles that I'd want/don't have, but I'm not too excited about the rest even if it's free.

    Well...just about any media on Amazon is 30% off whether you are talking about music, dvd, bluray, etc. At least for a little while it is.

    I just think that a 50% off of well over a hundred titles is pretty significant. Particularily when it happens shortly after Microsoft drops the price of the HD-DVD add-on to the 360 and news about Walmart and Netflix abandoning HD-DVD altogether.

    I always felt that BluRay would win for 2 simple reasons. First, reason is Microsoft did not make the 360 and HD-DVD player like Sony did with the PS3. Secondly, the BluRay disc came out with a higher capacity when the two technologies were first release which to me makes it a more logical successor in the computer world because it allows people to store the most data on the disc.

    So when i get back to town, I will check out the BM stores to wee what HDDVD BOGOs are going on.

    oh yeah, and Netflix supposedly went BD Exclusive, and Best Buy decided to move BD to the recommended High Definition player, and kick HDDVD to the shelves. No more end caps for HDDVD.

    It's a possibility. I don't see myself using it much for gaming if at all. I haven't played games on a console since the original PS.
