I refuse to pay more than I already pay for the most expensive Blu-ray discs: 27 dollars.
And I seriously doubt that WB will be able to manufacture both a Blu-ray and a HD DVD disc, glue them together, and make it for the same price as a BD alone. One would also think that this would entirely negate all arguments of how HD DVD's are cheaper to manufacture if WB has everyone not only making another BD to go on its other side, but then to have to have line where the discs are bonded.
This is the Divx of this generation. It negates the cost advantage of HD DVD and only HD DVD studios are showing any interest in it. Which means they might as well keep producing separate batches and selling them individually to maximize the profits.
Nah, this idea will fail. Combo players will succeed long before this does. Makes you wonder if this isn't WB's way of trying to make HD DVD look like it's going to live that much longer. Without this, we'd have to rely on a Blu-ray player that's hacked to play HD DVD's, too, but without any features.
I think this is WB's last ditch effort to make it look like HD DVD has a future. If so, they need to announce more titles and less engineering marvels.
