I wouldn't want to be in their living room when they go to play the HD movie for the first time... my ears can't handle that type of language.
Again, buying an HDTV is no task for the un-informed nowadays. If someone went through that process they should know what HDMI is, and there's no way they could blame anyone but themselves for dropping a half a grand on something they obviously knew nothing about.
It's like when I was car shopping and hung out at the forums for the car I was looking at and people would come on there and say "I just bought this car but I just realized that mine doesn't have cruise control and it has the old rims", or even "I have x, y, and z option on the car I just purchased, which trim did I get"? How people drop wads of cash without taking 10 minutes to learn anything about what they're buying is beyond me, and there is no way in hell I'm gonna feel bad for that type of person when their own laziness and naivete bites them in the ass.
Not to mention, none of the other consoles play any form of HD movies (HD-DVD or Blu-Ray) out of the box at all, so I don't see how the PS3 only playing them in one of its two versions is a negative :confused:
