I'd assume that's in reference to the new "Robot Chicken"-esque show.

I hope not. I'd prefer the new animated show to based on something before the OT (maybe even before the PT/Clone Wars) or something that is years after the OT. Lucas has a way of screwing up the events/characters that occur in the expanded SW universe.

Not sure if I like the idea behind this new Robot Chicken-style show.

I'd wait until late next year to get one though.

There's still a lot of teething problems with the format at this point. Sad

I'll be waiting til late next year anyway, I'd imagine. I don't actually have a television and I'm still tossing up over buying a proper blu-ray player or just a drive for my computer.

If your computer has a HDMI output, then go for the drive.

The main issue with BD is needing constant software updates to play new discs.

If you're using a drive, and running discs with PowerDVD, they have regular sofware updates.

Then there's also the HDMI issues.....Speak to anyone in the hi-fi industry and they'll tell you HDMI leaves a lot to be desired in terms of compatibilty between components (of different brands), picture drop-outs and the continual changes to the cable specs.

never had a problem with any recent bluray titles. Still only setup my system this year. The Cloen Wars Season 1 looks brilliant...now to see what Lucas has for us in Nov this year.

My ps3/hdtv/component surround works a treat, with the only issue being a new laser for my ps3....plays all new titles better than the movies imho....

I just remembered that they'll be releasing the special edition and adding new bits. Screw that.

watch LOTR on blu-ray and then on DVD and see if you can hold off buying SW on bluray when they are released. Wink

I'm still hugging my OT on laserdisc because I can't stand the special editions! I'll get ROTS on BluRay I guess but certainly none of the others if GL intends releasing the special editions of the OT. And getting ROTS on BluRay might difficult in itself as one can guess that all six films will be bundled together initially in a box set and available only this way for quite some time.
