You know up until I read these articles I really didn't care which format won. I just wanted one format.
Now after reading these I'm kinda rooting for HD-DVD since Blu-Ray (unless you own a PS3) wants to suck money out of people by making them buy multiple players.
Blu-Ray Profile 1.1 Makes Existing Players Obsolete
And evidently everyone that bought one of those early players knew they were getting screwed and gladly payed out that money knowing they were going to have to pay more money later for an up to date player.
Blu-Ray: Early Adopter Knew What They Were Getting Into
So early adoptors, did you really know you were going to have to spend more money? Are you glad you got suckered for more money? It's too late now you've made your investment, might as well throw more money down the drain. Buy your Profile 1.1 players now and then next year you can buy your 2.0 Profile player.
If you all want to throw more money away let me know. You can send it to me and I can use it to pay bills.
