Originally my plan to get into the HD Formats through the PS3 because I play videogames and love movies so it was a no-brainer to wait for that system but I am a huge Superman/Comic book fan and Warner seemed to be going exclusively HDDVD early on so I began to seriously think about getting a HDDVD player just for that and Batman Begins, and any other DC hero they decide to make a movie of. But then Warner decides to release on both formats so I stuck with my decision to get the PS3. So i have STM, the Donner cut and SR arriving next week on Blu-ray. If Warner had decided to stay exclusive to HDDVD I would have (90% sure) gotten an HDDVD player. I can't help but think if the exclusive studios for Blu-ray like Disney and Fox decide to release their big guns it would start to turn the tide. I mean if you think about POTC and Cars (any Pixar or Platinum 2D). And imagine if Fox could convince George about the Original Trilogy exclusively on Blu-ray how many people would rush out and buy a Blu-ray player (if it was the Original Original Trilogy remastered in HD I think most people here would think that a thousand bucks for a player might be worth it, y'know. So my question is this... If studios were to exclusively release "__________" movie on either Blu-ray or HD DVD what would make you switch or become exclusive to one or the other formats?
