The HD DVD player is not obtrusive, so I'm perfectly fine with it living in my entertainment system for quite some time. And like it or not, I won't be watching any BR movies until the prices come down. I'm simply not paying $400 for a movie player. I didn't do it with HD, and I'm not doing it with BR, even though the war is over, so I may as well enjoy what I have.
If your HD DVD player breaks for any reason, you can't get a replacement easily and that means any movies you buy after today were definitely a poor investment.
I'm hoping M$ hurries up and makes a low cost BR addon for the 360, then I'll be happy. Just bought my damn HD DVD too.
