    Damn, right when I was about to quit. I think I may stay longer now. Thanks for the news.

    Hmm interesting about the Video On Demand feature. Of course being the nerd I am I'm wondering what compression they'd use (if any) to send he movies out. They could save a lot of bandwidth and storage space if they went WM9 or mpeg-4. I think it's all a great idea, making money & legalizing downloading movies instead of quickly labeling it off as piracy.

    I would likely use it also... It will probably be a better deal then the Blockbuster Game Freedom Pass, and the other online game rental sites take too long for shipping.

    This will be cool if you can add games to your regular DVD queue for the same monthly fee. Otherwise, I wouldn't be interested.
