Look...you can either be part of the problem or part of the solution. That is each person's own choice. You can bash the decision all you want, but the decision has already been made. THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING! The fact
remains that no one here has actually seen the discs in question. None of this complaining means anything at all until there is actually something to complain about. Some of you are upset about the potential of something you won't even see for at least a month. You're basing your fears on something entirely different.
Yes, many people on this forum and others have said that combos led to their purchase of either of the disc first and then the player. People are fooling themselves if they believe that flippers had anything whatsoever to do with the failure of that format. Whether or not it gained them adopters is separate from the fact that they lost the support of the industry.
I've had enough of the fanboys from both camps. The HD-DVD fanboys will bash BD adopters for now using flippers and the BD fanboys will bash the HD-DVD adopters for the failure of their format. Enough already. It's time to grow up.
The only reasonable thing to do is to wait until one single version of this BD-59 is actually available. Until then...we, you, I, us, them, they, etc. are complaining about assumptions and guesses.
