    Apparently HD-DVD Player manufacturers have slashed their prices again in attempt to get things going, but with only 2 studios now supporting the format, it may just be desperation. Can't blame them for the move though.

    Gunny is fanboy defined. lol I'm thinking of getting a ps3 if my 360 messes up again. Maybe even if it doesn't. 360 for games, and the ps3 for 1 or 2 games and the extras.

    Gunny is correct defined.

    I haven't been wrong about anything.

    Blu Ray won which I said it would.
    PS3 is beating the 360 everywhere but NA and has sold more than the 360 did at the same stage, even without it's major exclusive coming out.

    The day after Thanksgiving in the US. Traditionally the busiest sales day of the year.

    Blu Ray is winning, but it's still nothing. That's sort of like saying mini-disc outsold it's competitor. May have, but when there are only 20 people in the market, eh.
    PS3 is outselling the 360? Due to Japan, I guess? Nobody I know has one. Well, i know one kid. But he bought a wii first, so that should tell you all you need to know about him.
    That's one of the main reason's I'm holding out on buying one. I know at least 20 personal friends with a 360. I know 1 guy with a ps3. And he never plays it.

    Each platform will have its die-hards, however I do believe Blu-Ray will win out ultimately and I believe Sony's incorporation of the Blu-Ray drive as a core component of the PS3 has played well in that effort. I know a lot of people love their HD-DVD players but ultimately only one format will survive.

    Toshiba's recent further price cuts on their players is a sign of the desperation they are beginning to feel. It was quite the shock for them to have to cancel their press conference at CES.
