I’m now the owner of a PS3. Went looking for a high definition dvd player and the best price I could find was $325 for a decent Toshiba. I decided to drop another $174 and get a PS3, which includes a Blu-ray player. So fuck HD-DVD, long live Blu-ray.
So far Sony, Blockbuster and Samsung are on my side. Microsoft becomes more of an enemy.
Picked up The Fountain as a test movie and thoroughly enjoyed it. Five movies came with qualifying players, but that offer forced me into choices such as Stealth, Resident Evil 2, Underworld Evolution or Stir of Echoes. I went with a sweaty Kate Beckinsale.
