Does anyone know when HD-DVD and Blue-Ray drives will be available for the PC. I was going to get a HD-DVD player for the XBox 360 but thought tht having one in the PC and streaming it through media centre would be cool.

Cheers:thumbsup:

Its expensive because its a writer ... I would expect the ROM drives to be a lot cheaper than that .... No more than about £100... Until the disc prices go down there isnt any point anyway, and that wont be for a few years yet (espeically for BR) ....

If you are only after a reader, I would imagine there will be ones available for the release of Vista. There isnt must point until then anyway, as the Vid Card and the OS will need to support HDCP, and that wont happen till Vista comes out ...
