Yeah I bought a Toshiba after they annouced the Blu-Ray format win. They were cheap. I bought it because it upconverts regular DVDs. Didn't know the PS3 also does this. But the thing only cost me $40 so I really didn't lose out on a whole lot.
I am assuming that the movies that were originally HD DVD will come out on Blu-Ray?
We have a HD-A2 and a PS3, but my wife has abandoned use of the A2 altogether for DVD playback because it is so incredibly slow to respond and operate. Instead she just uses the PS3.
You can definitely find great deals on the remaining stock of Toshiba players out there, and you can even get some great prices on the existing HD DVDs that are out there, but you gotta go in with knowing that no new movies will be out on HD DVD ever, and for new movies, it's only DVD for that player.
It is expected that most, if not all, HD DVDs that were released by studios will become available on Blu-ray, but there is no guarantee of this as it is up to the studios to decide individually.
