I think I will go for Blu-ray but I will look more into it before making any decision.

I will probably get a PS3 which supports Blu-ray and then also buy an HD DVD player. Then you get the best of both worlds.

What are your opinions?

Blu-ray seems better, but PS3 system looks volitile

Brüderlich zusammenhält,
Von der Maas bis an die Memel,
Von der Etsch bis an den Belt -

Blu-ray all the way. HD DVD may be cheaper and ready for release, but as a piece of technology, Blu Ray owns its behind.

And I like to get it right round Mr Gates.
