Default Formerly Blu-ray exclusive, neutral now!

Yup, just got the 360 HD DVD addon. I don't even have any movies yet, but I'll be picking up either Lost in Translation or the Matrix Trilogy tonight.

Cleeve owned an HD DVD player before. And can you blame him? Why limit yourself to less than half the studios as an HD DVD owner and not go Blu?

Welcome back,
Your dreams were your ticket out.

Welcome back,
To that same old place that you laughed about.

Well the names have all changed since you hung around,
But those dreams have remained and they're turned around.

Who'd have thought they'd lead ya (Who'd have thought they'd lead ya)
Here where we need ya (Here where we need ya)

Yeah we tease him a lot cause we've got him on the spot, welcome back,
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.

I went neutral because I'm smart and want to watch as many movies as possible, simple as that.

I have no loyalties towards any format or company, just towards movies.

I had no problem holding off from HD DVD when it only had Universal and seemed to have an extremely grim future, but now that Paramounts there, there's no way I'd not go neutral.

I don't know how anyone, on either side of the format war, could be format exclusive and happy at this point.

Good choice. I purchased Lost in Translation last week and it looks great in HD.
