That's the key and sweet-spot to launching a dual-format war that has any legs. It's got to offer more
than simply HD DVD; and still be a cheaper alternative to moving to Blu-ray (which the HD DVD camp is not going to do at current prices).
1+1 has to equal 1.5 in price, not 2 or 2+.
I hear you Popcorn, but I'm looking for the manufacturers to at least *announce* something that may be a bit higher than you'd like, so that the street prices can begin to get reasonable. Until that happens, I won't buy in.
IOW, I don't need it to be $199 before I jump, but I need to feel confident that it *will* get to $199 so that J6P will get in the game (someday) and my investment won't go to waste (hello SACD/DVD-A).
