I'm a little shocked that the HD DVD group isn't holding any sort of press conference at CES. No-showing CES seems like giving up. It seems like a combination of not knowing what to say and not...

With or without BOGOs, catalog titles aren't worth $20. I'm glad studios/retailers recognized that already, otherwise HDM will never have a chance to gain much share against SDVD.

So they mattered nothing. So I'm to believe if HD DVD had gone 52-0, Warner would have made the same decision? I've never said Neilsens were the deciding factor, just that they mattered and...

I don't see how that can be argued. The Nielsens actually mattered, 52-0 Blu-ray. Sure Warner could have gone the other way, but I don't get how entirely discounted some make the advantages Blu-ray...

Deep down there's a collecter inside me I can't keep supressed, so I'm glad I returned the few HD DVDs I bought a few weeks ago (thank you Amazon).

Bill Hunt has studio contacts. He's been posting their press releases for new titles for years.

It'd be a nice gesture for Warner to offer some sort of exchange program.

I almost weep when I see my unwatched $15 DVD titles in $5 bargain bins nowadays. For HDM I think renting is the best strategy. Studios are crazy if they think the mass public is going to pay $30...

I think there is some sort of USB adapter that lets the ps3 work with universal remotes.

I'm actually preferring using the controller. Big spaced out buttons equals fewer mistakes.
