I am Pointless...

Yep. Warner chickened out and when exclusively Blu-Ray, a few others pulled out and Toshiba then threw in the towel, leaving many feeling as though they've wasted their money and a few making unreasonable complaints.
I myself have an Xbox 360 HD-DVD player, and up until Thursday only have two films for it: Transformers and Shaun of the Dead. However, instead of getting worked up about it: Hey. I'm just gonna buy more HD-DVDs. No reason to stop because the format is dead commercially, isn't it?
SO! This Friday, I popped into Gamestation (Ooh. 3 for 2! *buys*) and spent just over £100 () on several HD flicks:
V for Vendetta
Hot Fuzz and
The Ultimate Bourne Collection
So I'm pretty chuffed with myself there.
As for Microsoft, well... Releasing the HD-DVD drive as a separate add-on was probably the best idea they came up with. Had Blu-Ray "died the death", then Sony would have been a little on the shafted side, but Microsoft could just turn to the Blu side right now and release a new player, couldn't they? Know what I mean?
