Talks failed and now we can all flip a coin and pony up huge bucks. Thing is, the PS3 will have the blu-ray built in, or as an option that will end up costing a lot less than a stand-alone player. That in and of itself might might cast the swing vote and bury HD-DVD. I'm gonna sit on the sidelines on this one and DVR the hell out of my movie channels for awhile.
    actually HD-DVD starts at 500 while blu-ray starts at 1000

    but as you mentioned its no 375... thats awesome.

    Granted, I've been a huge sony fan all of my life, at least in terms of gaming, but this is video proof of my first thought when I heard about blu-ray God-knows forever ago: Once again, sony feels the need to create its own data format so it can try to rule the roost, only to have it become extinct with little, if any, profit. UMD anyone? :thumbdown

    there was a report out that said sony lost a huge amount of money over the last year due to blu-ray research and ps3 marketing, while nintendo made money and so did microsoft. Sony is putting all of its hopes in the ps3, and if it fails its not good news.

    Quite a funny history lesson. I remember going to the video store and seeing Betamax and VHS tapes, each in their own sections.
