    HD-DVD got their marketing wrong. Nothing wrong with going with blu-ray.

    No idea. I just found this source. But not perfectly sure. Because they just "confirmed" it.

    Lol. Maybe Wii might have a Internal/External DVD Drive. I mean really. I want a external dvd drive for the Wii. Only capability's the Wii has is the Wii sensor+some what awesome games.

    You don't need one. You only need DVD playing software to play DVDs on the Wii.

    Out of curiosity, does Sony get a percentage of the money from people who use Blu-Ray?

    And the day after it comes out, Sony will lower the price of the PS3 $50 and update the Blu-Ray standard so the 360 player can't use all of the features.

    They said they'd do this months ago if HD-DVD lost the war. Yeah, Sony gets some money from the Blu-Ray, but they're just part of the board that controls blu-ray, not the lone investor/manufacturer/etc. I wouldn't think the next Xbox will be BluRay though; but then again, I think Bill still owns a good portion of SOA

    That's just daft, if they did they'd be outdating all the Blu-Ray players currently on the market as well. Remember Sony doesn't only make consoles so Microsoft is not the only company they'll be dealing with.

    Actually, that is incorrect. A common mis-assumption for many people. Sony helps make the updates, they don't do it to make their other players useless either, that would be stupid. Did you forget Sony makes more than just the PS3 as a (partial) BD Player?

    Yeah, it's really adopter syndrome; buy in early and you'll be kinda screwed. Same thing happened with old DVD players when the dual layer discs came out. I remember having to buy a new DVD player because of it.
