Many of you I’m sure have heard of LG’s “Super Multi Blue Player” that is capable of playing both Blu-Ray and HD-DVD with only a single drive. The player is now available on bestbuy.com.

With the ability to play both Blu-ray Discs and HD DVDs, in addition to upconverting standard DVDs, this versatile system delivers crisp and clear images with rich layers of sound that will leave you on the edge of your seat.”

If you want to get yourself a High Definition player and don’t want to end up with a dead format this may be a good option, and even though it doesn’t support all of HD-DVD’s features it isn’t enough to worry about. Most of the missing functionality could most likely be fixed with a simple firmware update.
The player is $1200 which is a bit pricey but thats the price you pay if your an early adopter.
