    blu-ray, hd dvd, what to get?

    Do all normal DVD's these days play in standard definition? If they do, can I play hd dvd's in my xbox 360?

    I am looking to get some high def. DVD's and wondering the best way to do it. Get a blu-ray disc player? If that's the best route any suggestions on which one to get?

    blu-ray trumped hd dvd as the new standard. in a year or so you will not even be able to buy hd dvd players. I don't think there are even new titles being made on hd dvd.

    sick... okay so I think I know which player to get, where do you all get your discs from? Is ebay legit? $20 a disc isn't so bad but when you start getting a lot of them it adds up.

    Re: blu-ray, hd dvd, what to get?

    amazon has some good deals. Go to www.highdefdigest.com forums and look at blu ray deals. It varies from week to week.

    As for the ps3 be updateable. Yes, it can and is the easiest to do it, but alot of other players out there can be updated as well.

    I have owned 4 blu ray players and the PS3 works best for me.

    the PS3 is the way to go, not because of the gaming but because of the ease of use. Most BR players are not fully updated. the PS3 player is the front runner, plus if you need any updates its a quick download.

    and of course God of War III comes out in March so the PS3 is the way to go

    just watched my first Blu-ray movie and it was pretty sick. watched Transformers, the picture looked awesome and the sound was great as well.

    oh, and i used my shiny new PS3.
