Seriously . . .
I bought outmoded loser stuff:
Short story: I now own an HD DVD player!! WHOOHOOO!!!
Long story: Wife bought a copy of a Harry Potter movie from Ebay not realizing it was HD DVD. The seller must have been like: Oh thank jesus!!!
I told her we couldn't play it so it was just a $15 coaster . . .
Anyway, walked into Fry's last night and found them selling the HD DVD player for the xbox 360 for $40. It was payday and I needed an impulse purchase! Sweet!!!
And it is better. I noticed things on the little hd tv I had never noticed before, things that were obscured by the lack of resolution. And when I say never noticed, I mean on the Harry Potter movies we've watched scores of times (the first two are pretty good for little kids . . . they get progressively scarier, hence our lack of desire to show those to the kids over and over . . . ).
Anyway, if you've already blown $400 on the xbox . . . what's a few dollars more? ha!!
