i am not swayed,  but if i was on the fence about a system, there is no doubt i would go with a ps3... when i bought one last june, i thought i might regret not having the xbox - not anymore. ditto on the wii (but that has nothing to do with the discussion).

I got this from Best Buy today:

Dear Best Buy customer,

Our records show that you purchased an HD DVD player from Best Buy™.

Recently, Toshiba announced that they will no longer produce HD DVD players, and movie studios decided they will no longer release new movies in HD DVD.
   
At Best Buy, we are dedicated to making sure you always have the right technology for you. That is why we will be mailing you a Best Buy™ gift card in the upcoming weeks. If you haven't received your gift card by May 1, please call us at 1-888-BEST BUY (1-888-237-8289).

If you are interested in trading in your HD DVD player and HD DVDs, check out our technology trade-in service at BestBuyTradeIn.com where we will accept HD DVD hardware and software in exchange for a Best Buy gift card based on its market value.

**********************

I did their trade-in estimator and with 7 movies get to about $60.  No telling how much the gift card will be for as mentioned above.

FYI - Best Buy is pulling out all HD DVD stuff from their stores on Wednesday.  There won't be any closeouts - they're all going back to be resold to outlets like Amazon and Big Lots (according to an internal memo posted on AVS).

as funny as that is, I need one.  I have movies I recorded on a beta-cam and now no way to play them back to a capture device.

Sold the HD-A3 and the 7 movies that came with it for $100 today.

Now I am going to sit back and think about a PS3 that's backwards compatible, wait until Sony prices Blu-Ray players for $200, or maybe cave and get a PS3 40 gig and keep my PS2 and have two video game systems on one TV.

I got my $50 gift certificate to best buy yesterday, my hd dvd addon for the 360 is valued at $17 for the trade in.

I'm passing on the trade in and using it as a pc drive.  that was a costly mistake.

I thought I read once that walmart customers are getting a full refund.  I also read a rumor that netflix might be teaming up with xboxlive for downloadable rentals.


Because nothing says "I have lots of money and am sort of confused as to how to spend it" like Bose.
