Yep, we bought a beta....

Last week, Netflix sent us an email to let us know that they're switching exclusively to Blu-ray high def DVDs. Now, we all know that economically, it's not a wise choice to shop for a tv two days before the superbowl, but I figured it was completely safe to buy Ollie the HD-DVD player attachment to the Xbox as a Christmas gift. Boy was I wrong. Reuters confirmed it today:

"Sony Corp's Blu-ray technology is close to winning the format war for home movie DVDs after a source at Toshiba said it was planning to exit its HD DVD business after Hollywood studios and big retailers such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc. backed Blu-ray."

Anyone wanna buy an HD copy of The Bourne Ultimatum? It's like-new! We're rolling back prices!

sorry man. lucky for us, we wait years and years to buy the "new" stuff. We still have our original DVD player (which pretty much sucks).
