Yeah, sure. You're confident in your purchases NOW, but when the chips are down people are ready to jump ship, just like the first several months of Blu-Ray's existence. Make no mistakes my misguided friend, some people are ready to throw in the towel the minute ANYTHING goes wrong. You make it sound like everyone who buys an HD-DVD is suddenly giving in. What is wrong with you?
Then you imply this forum is full of mature adults, and there is nothing but whining children in the forum next door. Nice to see this gamer "the grass is greener HERE" mentality has spread to HT forums as well. You'd have to be an idiot to expect people to not post in this thread that are HD-DVD supporters/fans, since the THREAD TITLE ITSELF clearly displays discussion about the main HD-DVD backer.
Because it's posted in the Blu-Ray forum, this is nothing but a flame-bait topic. This is an HD-DVD subject. Wonderful example of maturity there! Maybe next time we can just get it out of the way and title the thread "Blu-Ray is better, nanny-nanny poo-poo." Hypocrite.
Enjoy your hype wave, guys and girls. Hey, Sony's had enough bad news to last a decade over the last 12 months, they had to get SOMETHING positive eventually, right? Hope you're not disappointed when HD-DVD is still pumping out plenty of titles in 2008. That said, I'll be glad to buy a Blu-Ray player when they are a reasonable price. I'm not so dedicated that I'll "refuse" to buy something. But there sure as hell no reason to jump ship just because of one press conference that was spewing corporate hype/propaganda.
But, hey, if you're buying into Sony's "6 Blu-Ray discs were purchased with each PS3!" tale, I pity you too much to actually take issue with you.
