Default Will you buy the HD DVD, BD or Total HD version?

This poll is all about Total HD and what you would do if you could get the movie you want on your favorite format (Blu-ray or HD DVD) or the Total HD for about the same price. Imagine yourself in a retail store with the Blu-ray, HD DVD and Total HD version of the film you want all on the shelf in front of you.

Total HD is a disc created by Warner that contains the HD DVD version of a film on one side and the Blu-ray version of the film on the other side. For more info please read the Total HD story here:

If anyone thinks I should add another option to the poll just let me know what it should be and I will add it.

I am going to buy the least expensive disc.

Lets say Harry Potter is on HD DVD and it is $20, but the Total HD version is $15. Well then I'll have the Total HD version. However if the HD DVD only version is cheaper, then that is the one I will buy.

If it were no different I'd buy the TotalHD release as it would give me the flexibility to play on any player I wanted!

How expensive are these total HD disc gonna run? 40? honestly i think the LG player is a better option than buying discs with both formats on it

I think the first two options are really the same aren't they? I mean I would vote for both of them. The format of my choice will obviously work in my player as the dimensions of the disc will be the same.

The difference is the motive of the person. The dimensions of all these discs are the same, but yet some people may have silly thoughts about a Total HD disc not working in their Blu-ray or HD DVD player so they will not "risk" buying it.

The problem is price. Every disc includes both formats so they must pay licencing to both, wether one side of the disc will forecer go unused or not.

I would also be increasing the length of htis war. If one of the formats was wooping ass at the time, TotalHD would give a free ride to the other format.

I voted only if the extras are in tact. Hopefully this will be the case.
