Default one more attempt to save HD DVD

Do NOT buy used HD DVDs. Buy them new, at retailers.

If I am correct, only new movie purchases from legitimate retailers have effect on HD DVD selling trends/rates.

Buying used just circulates already purchased copies, it doesn't bring more HD DVDs into the market.

Those HD DVD supporters who are excited for people selling their HD DVD stuff off for cheap only accelerate the end of HD DVD. You are stunting HD DVD's selling growth and potential.

Thoughts?

Let the ones buying used movies buy them as they want to. Blu-Ray supporters don't buy all new movies all the time too.

We're living in a "free world" so it's actually to everyones own comings and goings.

well obviously it's a free world and people do as they please. I am only saying buying used does not help the HD DVD cause.

Yeah right. It was just the manner you used to say it in that made me think.

I agree as well.

Buying used copies won't help sales numbers. I'm in for the long haul and will continue to buy new HD DVDs only.
