I won't touch either one...
I am not going to buy either one until the format war is over. Should this come about at about the same time the next new format comes along then screw them. DVD is just fine for movies and should have a longer life than what they are giving it. It comes down to greed not better quality, features or anything else. They want everyone to run out and buy what they already have on the new format. Again I say screw them.

Hall sex

This entire format war is akin to concept of hall sex, everyone is getting screwed .. but NOT really.
The format war is good for everyone. Do you remember 8 TRACK I do.

DVD burners should be multi-format
Current DVD burners are multi-layer and multi-node. The new
DVD burners should be the same for both 'regular' DVD's as well
as Blu-Ray and HD DVD. Then the format war outcome will be
defined by media sales.
