GOBB, tell the truth. Did you have a mini-disc player? I make mistakes, too...... stupid ass Sega CD.
This is ridiculous.
I waited a bit until prices came down and I've gotten three years of use of my bluray player. You can get an excellent Panasonic bluray player for $99. If you don't want to rebuy your DVD collection, you don't have to. You can rent blu-rays from Netflix.
It's a noticeable bump in picture quality from DVD and it's even better than HD movies via cable.
If you don't have a HD TV, then it's one thing. However, if you have an HD TV and you're a movie fan blu-ray is definitely worth it and it won't be replaced within five years because the bulk of the market is not going to move beyond 1080p HD for a while.
