I remember I was a day 1 adopter. Exciting stuff. I also remember first loading a new HDDVD and how freaking LONG it took to load. Just sat there loading forever, lol. Firmware updates aplenty too.
There was the 1 day the news came out declaring HDDVD lost the war. I had my player and movies up for sale that day and sold that evening, haha. The writing was on the wall for sure.
