HD DVD is dead 1

It’s official. I returned my Toshiba HD DVD A3 Player to Amazon today after watching just three HD movies on it.

HD movies are awesome. We saw Jumpers in the theater yesterday, and I’m convinced that an HD movie on my home screen is better. Jumpers was still visually stunning, and is nice to look at it (there was no plot development whatsoever), but I did leave wanting to ask for my money back.

But it’s now been settled. If you want HD DVD movies, Blu-Ray is the only choice. Toshiba will announce tomorrow that they’ll cease production of equipment. Thankfully, Amazon gave me all of my money back.

So, what does that mean for me? I think a Playstation 3 is cheaper than a new player (at least it’s close enough in price to justify a used one) so I’ll be ordering one this week.

And after my first play on Guitar Hero this weekend, I might look for a PS3 with a guitar!

    My wife and I, along with my sister in law and her husband play rockband when we can, and Jen and I play GH too. It is awesome. I”m going to get a PS3 for BRay too eventually. Disney going all Blue sealed the deal for me ( with the kids it was no contest)
