i hope BLU-ray too......id like to see this form of technology progress, and who knows, we may end up playing PC games on blu-ray.


i think HD-DVD is more practical for everyday use and they fact its easier to produce hd-dvd players and such. o and btw, xbox 360 already has a 200$ hd-dvd player add on available.

i think blu-ray will win at the end of the day but only in time to be replaced by the next generation optical drives that have been well into development long before the release of blu-ray
