    dont know if the price has been told yet but

    though its a add-on, the PS3 price doesnt look that bad anymore seeing you need the 360 for it. $600 total.

    The difference being I don't have to buy it for the 360. I can go buy a 360 now, and not worry about more money for an HD-DVD addon.

    Then, maybe 6 months from now, or a year, maybe I want to throw a couple hundred bucks to buy the addon. At least it's not $600 at once, and if one doesn't want the addon, they aren't forced to buy it.

    yeah, i wasnt trying to do another bash sony again but for those who want HiDEF, its the same price for both (either you pay it now or later, its the same price). Both plays games and both plays HiDEF DVD.

    Or a lot later, when you can get a standalone HD DVD player for $99 in 2-3 years.

    Going to skip , wait , and hold out with the 360 and when the PS3 price drops, IT will be the addon.

    The only thing the HD DVD addon is good for is too watch movies. I know MS has stated there won't be games on HD DVD. Wonder if they'll still point that out when the addon comes out. With the PS3, game developers have the luxury of putting more content on the BluRay, with the drive being in all PS3s.

    I might wait for the old VHS vs. Beta (Beast?) wars to heat up before I make a firm decision.
