You say there's no difference, but you then list the major differences between the two and call call capacity difference a red herring. Huh? Want to explain that. Blu-Ray's additional capacity is huge. Capacity=quality. Quality = #1. High bitrate or the ability to have extras and retain the higher bitrate is huge. But there's only one choice for any film buff wanting to buy high def right now: get both. Or screw em, like I did, and get a satellite with HD channels (Monsters HD is owns both formats in terms of selection for high def horror). If were to buy in right now, I would get the PS3 and the Xbox 360 add-on drive. I don't plan to do either, but the Amazon deals are awfully tempting. So far I've resisted and since implementing my 'only going to buy it if I watch it more than once a year' policy, I've only bought about one DVD in the past year. I'm just in no rush since most of the movies I want I already have on standard DVD, aren't available on high def, and even if they were, my setup just isn't high end enough to display the improvement.
