I'm currently just in the HD-DVD camp. You?

HD-DVD. Unless BR comes down in price (or wins the format war), it'll remain that way.

HD only since April of this year.

I would go neutral if BD made a fully compatible stand-alone player for less than $399.

1 HD-A2
1 PS3

Very tempted to get an additional HD DVD player, but the one I bought yesterday for $99 is a gift.

I stopped caring about this war months ago. Movies that I want come out and I buy them. They can both live on for all I care. A year or two from now we will have cheap combo players anyway so all of our collections will be fine even if one format dies.

Was a pretty staunch Blu supporter, then BAM, I saw the Wal-Mart $99 deal on the HDA2 and now I'm purple.

Have way, way more Blu movies at the moment, but I've only supported both for about 18 hours so far :P

If you can afford it both it's the only way to go imo

The studios can keep this format war going I really don't give a shit who wins as long as they keep releasing more and more movies I'm happy

HD DVD exclusive.

If Blu can get their act together with a "final spec" player that is at my price point, I'd consider going neutral.

HD DVD only. BD is just too expensive for me.

I can understand trying to be "noble" by supporting one format because you want it to win, but much like voting for the president you have nearly nothing to do with the outcome. And more importantly, when you're supporting one format, you're only hurting yourself.

HD as of a little over a week ago. I'd go Blu, but the prices just aren't where I need them to be.
