    Just realized why blu-ray isn't worth it. I didn't think about it, and tried to bring a blu-ray disc in my bedroom to watch on the computer. That sucks.
    DVD is still where its at, and I still can't tell any difference at all when watching a dvd and blu-ray. Maybe if they were side-by-side, but otherwise, the jump isn't a big one. So unless you get a blu ray player with your ps3, I wouldn't waste the money.

    Unless you have a big screen TV, there isn't much difference in picture quality.

    Do they have region free blu ray players yet? I didn't know movies were region encoded.

    Not that I am aware of.

    That was another advantage to HDDVD.
