My cousin got herself a nice HD TV, and I think she is giving me subtle hints that might want some kind of HD media player to go with it for Christmas. And when I say subtle hints I mean, she flat out told me. Unfortunately there are currently two formats on the market and neither one of them wants to die. Best idea would probably be to hold off and see which one becomes a standard. But, if you had to buy one before the end of the year, which would it be?
I’m leaning towards HD DVD because both the players and the media are cheaper, and it doesn’t involve Sony – the most evil company of the years. But then again, I could buy her a PS3 which is more of an entertainment system rather than just a pure game console anyway, and then “borrow it” from time to time :twisted:. Especially since I desperately want to play Assassins Creed and it definitely won’t run on my computer. Heh…
Given a choice, which one would you pick?
Note that there is no “none of the above” option cause I kinda want to see which one is more popular. So even if you are not planing to buy one, which one do you think is going to win the format war? Which one would you like to win?
Lastly, does anyone here own a HD player? Which one did you buy? What brand? Are you happy with it? Do you have any suggestions for someone shopping around for a HD player?
