Sure, I do the same for Blu-Ray exclusives for now. The REON VX video processor on my HD-XA2 does a great job upscaling SD titles to 1080p, but I'm sure HiDef source would look and sound even better.
As you know, the HDM contents provided by both HiDef formats are identical in audio and video quality offering. However, people do forget that and do get caught up on the optical disc format war instead of the bigger dispute between SD vs. HD contents. For many, the cost is the main issue for not being able to support both formats, but for others, the support comes from the love of the game console?
Having said that, I just got a Wii yesterday due to driving demand of the visiting nieces. Got lucky while shopping at toysrus. A line was forming quickly as soon as people found out the "Wii" was in stock. I don't think anyone will form a line for other game consoles out there. I'll be keeping it for the future visitors. I bought wii play, cross-bow training, and an nunchuck and have been much fun thus far.
BTW, did anyone take advantage of the Amazon HD-DVD BOGO?
