    by the time you've downloaded it, the film would have expired.

    I'm sticking to DVD's at the moment

    It's possible a BR drive might be made available but MS appear to be concentrating on digital delivery.

    Personally, I think digital delivery is a bit of a joke with regards to the Xbox 360. It's great that you have the ability to purchase old game titles and movie (and perhaps TV) content but without giving the end user the option of replacing the hard drive (like the PS3) or creating backups (even including DRM) I feel it's a bit pointless right now. Also, with what I'd imagine to be, the majority of users having 20GB drives you'd only have space for a couple of HD titles if they don't fill it up with their save games and DLC/XBLA stuff. Bandwith availability just isn't here right now, at least not for all users, and internet usage caps too are too restrictive to allow for "on demand".
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    xbla hd downloads are hardly hd anyway. about 6 gig for an hd movie? you get regular dvds that big - which means the "hd" versions are 5x the resolution with no increase in bitrate
