    There's a huge difference between a HD-DVD/Blu-Ray player vs. VHS/BetaMax. The discs are the same size, the only real difference is the laser that reads the disc. VHS and BetaMax were two totally different formats all together.

    Less than $300 might be a bargain right now, my point was this technology will have to be a lot cheaper if they want me to participate.
    When they hit $100-$150 I'll think more about doing it, until then... meh.... what I have works just fine.

    Any player I own is kept as long as it lasts or until some nifty new thing comes out and I replace it with it.
    Right now the advantage of the PS3 is you get the gaming console, media player, web surfing device, and a blu-ray player for not much more than a player costs by itself and you get to play The Force Unleashed.

    Actually I plan on keeping my PS3 as long term. (unless they do actually come down to 100 bucks) Come to think about it, we haven't sold anything electronic that we have. We bought a 27" sharp Tv in 1996 and we still have it. 2 VCRs and four DVD players including the PS2 but not the PS3.

    I don't mind watching DVD's now. I just got a new xbox 360 with the HDMI port. I picked up a HDMI cable and now the xbox upconverts the DVD to near HD quality

    As with the VHS/BetaMax wars, content providers have made their choice. I don't expect HD-DVD to survive as a format. Hence, no profit for drive makers to make new dual format drives. Hence, no new dual format players.
