HD DVD has a year to make stuff happen. In 2008 I won't deprive myself of any movies. Both formats are certainly making each other better. The improvement in quality hardware and software is happening at such a pace I can't fault any of you for wanting to overdose on this stuff.
Yeah, I hear ya, I am the same way, just the other side of the isle. Tonight my wife and I just watched "The Transporter" and it was a very fun movie. From the list of upcoming Blu-ray releases there have to be a number of those movies you want to see in HD? I say why wait, enjoy them now. I have an HD-A1 for exclusive Universal titles I can't wait to see on Blu-ray.
Think of it this way, if you get a PS3 for your Blu-ray viewings you could always sell it at a decent price if you decide you do not want Blu-ray. Why? Because it is a gaming console, so there will always be a market for it. Look at the PS2, it is still the top selling console, even beating the Xbox 360 and the Wii.
I just do not think you should deprive yourself of the awesome HD that is currently out there and the new HD which is just around the corner.
