I still have two 360 addons and the LG combo so I am set for HD DVD readers for a while. As far as BD goes since they seem to have won , drives will be available so no worries. Anyway the BluRay readers should be coming down in price by the time (if) the LG dies...the LG combo already have drop in price.
But if you are really worry about HD DVD part, prob get great deals on the 360 addon soon. The combo drives will prob disappear and become just another footnote in the HDM war.
But I dont really use the drives for movie playback, but as readers to rip the movies to my media servers. So I will wait for an affordable BD writer (and cheaper BD media).
