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.
Haven't been too serious about the HD-DVD player because there haven't really been too many movies the wife and I want to watch.
On the Elite system, the thing I would like the most is the HDMI connector. Other than that what I have is OK.
One note, I had to send my 360 in for service because it was randomly freezing. They were pretty good about turning it around and sending me a refurb. I think it only took about 10 days total. So far, no problems.
