    the cost of a 360 (even without a hard drive) and the HD DVD add-on is more expensive than the 40GB PS3.

    I think that just because he directed the movie, everytime he talks about what he ate for lunch on his blog it becomes frontpage news here :p

    Exactly. Even though Beta had the better image quality, it was quantity that won.

    Like my location isn't right there to the left.... And yeah anime is only 18=20 bucks a pop at Best Buy. But hollywood movies are $20-$30. Older movies get knocked down to $15, but that takes two years. So for me $30+ a pop for HD formats isn't that big of a deal when DVD's are $20-30 a pop.

    $20-$30 dollars for a DVD? I don't know where you shop but I don't pay that much. Even most Special Edition DVDs aren't that much. I saw the Family Guy: Blue Harvest for I think $29.99, but that was the Special Edition that comes with a booklet a T shirt and all sorts of other nonsense.

    For DVD's? Wal-Mart, HMV, Futureshop, and Best Buy now that one opened. Average price for a new DVD is $24.99. I might get away with a release day/week special from Futureshop of only $15-20, but that doesn't happen often.

    He is in Canada where everything is a little bit more expensive, even though the Canadian dollar is just about the same value as ours.

    Same here. I'm only interested in a new format if provides me with cheaper anime boxsets.
