Default Fire sales? Come on, you guys!

I can't believe the number of threads that have cropped up in the trade/sell sub-forum because of the warner news. Are you guys afraid your discs are going to suddenly stop functioning? Anyway if it gets me more inexpensive hddvds, fine...but it's kind of a shame to see some of you acting so fickle.

Quite true, your movies and player are still good. The war is also not over yet, so there is no real reason to panic.

Well I would pick up some more HD DVD titles if I didn't have most of the ones that were already available. Although I do still have 14 preorders left for HD DVD.

No reason to panic. I will continue to purchase the movies on HD DVD that made me go red in the first place, AND with cheaper prices we all benefit. Besides, my A3 is a much better upconverter than the PS3 ever will be.

I just can say one thing: "I'm really looking forward to seeing The Hobbit Movie floating in at the beginning of 2011"

Meh. I'll probably still pick up a second HD DVD player for the bedroom - the discs I have are movies I'll want to watch for many years to come. And I won't buy a BD player until they can ship a finalized design for $200.

Panicking and jumping ship is exactly what the BDA wants.

And what they obviously get if you look around in the forums. Sad but true.

I'm keeping my movies and if I can afford to go purple. I will still buy HD-DVD versions where possible.

I only buy movies that I'll rewatch. So, I'm with you. It's not going to kill me at all. Many of my movies are from the catalogs, not new releases. I'm not a new release hound. Freddy
