I really like the idea of HD VMD, and if player and movie prices are low enough then you know online sellers will makes them easily available. I used to get VCD versions of movies that were not readily available in North America and HD VMD could be huge in the Asian markets. It's easy to dismiss the format as a joke but it is an interesting technology to at least investigate.

If people can't even afford HD-DVD, do they really need an HDM player? It's not going to make anything look or sound better if you've got it hooked up to your 27" mono SDTV.

Looks like VMD is going to win. I've been assured countless times by HD DVD supporters that price always wins out, and VMD is definitely the cheapest HD format.

Well, I'm an HD-DVD supporter that thinks interactivity and standard features will win.

The more the merrier I say, this format war makes a great spectator sport.

Maybe they could be rental-only, with the discs self-destructing after a week. We could call it HDIVX.

This war is turning in to an absolute joke. Why would a company in their right mind add more fuel to this fire and them jump in the fire. This is getting ridiculous.
