The price is going up and it still isn't more than vaporware, even at CES.
Don't I remember hearing a pledge a year ago, that the price would be held at $300., to encourage sales and defeat the opposition by numbers of users?
In the view of the majority of people would would likely buy it, there's a huge difference between parting with $600. and just $300.

These companies must love new formats.. They get to re release all the titles again and marvel as all us plebs buy the same thing over and over.. In ten years blu ray/hd-dvd will be dead and they will have the next format going with a new release of Star Wars and round we go again.

Then why not create a press release and announce it?

How are the people who just shelled out $1000 gonna feel when the PS3 comes in at %60 off?

I think that link goes to the $399 player.

Remember, the PS2/Xbox weren't the greatest DVD players and all my friends were so frustrated, they bought seperate DVD players to watch movies.

PS3 has to be in that 300-400 sweet spot or else a lot people will probably just go xbox. We've got more knowledge of multimedia but most people won't weight all those pros and cons. The'll just see a more expensive system and game that's HD and a cheaper system and games that's HD. Trust me when I say most people have no idea what they are spending their money on. I worked at best buy randomly two weeks when they released xbox 360, most people just bought it to buy it they don't really know anything about it just "that it's better."

Sony can shower people with all kinds of features but no one is reading.

Whoa I just realized I'm a major player!

Help me out here: Doesn't HD-DVD only support 720p or did I dream that up?

I know the Xbox 360 only supports 720p, but I'm not sure about HD-DVD. I think it does both.
