I caught this one in the theaters as well. It was well done but it wasn't what I expected. From the previews I expected a scary horror movie but got a thriller instead.

I leave my HD DVR plugged in, but I fully power down everything else when I leave town. Don't forget to unplug the cell phone and other device chargers. They suck power just by remaining plugged in.

It seems too plausible to be an April Fools. Microsoft will go with the market on this one. Blu-ray won and they will definitely support it. No reason not to. It's a value-add for the 360.
