On Wednesday I am due to receive my first high definition player. I would have loved to support both HD formats as I feel neither is going away any time soon. I decided NOT to buy into Blu-Ray because of the $1000 pricetag attached to it. This is tough for me, because I realize that in a few months the studios are going to be releasing day-and-date product on Blu-Ray. My question is this.... When do you forsee prices on Blu-Ray hardware dropping? Do you think by 4th quarter it's still going to cost $1,000 to get your foot in the door with Blu-Ray? ...and please don't mention the $500 game console. I don't play videogames and certainly don't want a game console in order to play Blu-Ray product.
