    It is my understanding that Blu Ray is the supierior format, but so was betamax. From what I have read, the Blu Ray is getting the better market share, but I am not willing to commit to either at this point. I will wait this one out.

    I'd say it is getting the better market share because it has the head start and the PS3 has one already.
    Me, for example, if I didn't have a PS3 I wouldn't get a blu ray player yet (or at all depending on which 'wins'), but I do have one and I have about 7 blu ray movies now.

    Sony also has the advantage of owning half of Hollywood as well.

    Last I heard was that the naked industry controlled the fate here. And blu ray refused them. So that would mean HD DVD would take control.

    That is what I heard but so far that doesn't look truthful (of course it is early.)

    not sure porn will use HD media

    1st of all, it's too expensive
    2nd, porn in HD becomes less erotic and more scary (I assume)

    Adult industry already confirmed they have. Remember they wanted to use Blu-ray before Sony said no.

    And it is the biggest money maker in the film industry, expense is not an issue for them.

    There are XXX adult titles available on both formats. Yes, even Blu Ray. Huge majority though are HD DVD.

    Paramount going exclusive with HD DVD was also a big move.

    As long as there are studios jumping in bed with one format, there is reason to own both.

    I can't recount how many places I've tried in vain to find a Pro system (the $350 one) with HDMI. It's not that I'm finding older systems w/o the HDMI....I'm not finding ANY 360 systems.

    WTF? Are they trying to make all these changes now to fix the systems and that's why they're not on shelves? Can't get me a damn HD DVD player until MS starts shipping more of these 360 turds.
