I thought that commercial was lame as hell. Does nothing for me.

Nice shot of the 360 and the drive at the end though.

why do i have a feeling people are going to think the hddvd drive is a smaller and slimmer version of the 360 because of this advertisement?

Yeah it could've been made shorter, but that was still a pretty good commercial.

It def. catches your eye, and that was a pretty cool pic of the system at the end w/ the HD-DVD player.

My 360 doesn't make hardly any noise at all unless it's spinning a game DVD.

That's probably the universal remote control, as opposed to the launch 360 chibi unit.

Yeah that's the same universal remote they've been selling over the last year.

I picked up one of those at launch. Nothing really all that universal about it though. It'll only control your TV and Xbox 360 - no support for any stereo receiver.

Oh... and its not that big. Its maybe 1 inch longer than the Sony remote for my A/V receiver.

As for the commercial, I think its great. Makes the point in a very visual style. Its kind of hard to do a commercial advertising HD-DVD or Blu-Ray since most people will not be able to see their native resolutions on their TV.

Ontopic: commercial does nothing for me but I can see why it would work for the majority. Not as great as the Jump In campaign though.

doesn't say how loud it is. Right now, thats my only concern. My Toshiba HD-A1 is near silent when watching HDDVD, as is the 360 when watching SDDVD. But its noisy when using MCE stuff or just in the dash.

If the HDDVD add on is silent-ish, I'll sell my A1, buy a 360 add on and use the spare change to pay for my Wii
