I'd maybe hold off on the HD-DVD player add-on as it's around $200.00 and standalone HD-DVD players are really coming down in price. I've seen online sales for around $299.00 including two HD-DVD movies. Maybe it's just me, but I'd rather have a standalone player rather than to have to pump video through the Xbox from an add-on.
And even though I'm heavy into Blu-Ray (about 30 movies), I've been threatening to get an HD-DVD player as Universal produces flicks solely for HD-DVD. I'd really like to watch Serenity, The Matrix, Children of Men, Smokin' Aces, and The Hulk in HD.
As you're an Xbox fan, I'd be curious to know what you think of the new Xbox Elite system.
