I've been picking up HD titles for about a month and a half but it was only today that I actually attempted to buy an HD player. Unfortunately, though not surprsingingly, I was unable to attract the attention of any salesmen at Best Buy (all of whom spent about 20 minutes explaining iPods to a pretty young blonde). Not having a lot time to spend waving my arms at indifferent blue shirts, I returned home empty handed. (I'll find one soon, I'm sure).
However, as I have said to people, I've not been in a panic to buy the HD player because none of the movies I've obtained are critical must-see films. I try to buy things I like and certainly look forward to seeing some of my acquisitions like but it isn't like I'll feel short changed if don't see them in HD immediately.
But now things are getting serious. CASABLANCA and FORBIDDEN PLANET are films on my critical must see list. It's the early word on CASABLANCA that finally got me into the store to buy (unsucessfully) the player. Combined with some more releases in the coming month, I'm going to be very upset if I can't get that player soon (Future Shop here just raised their price back to $699.00 from $549.00 but I'm hoping that is just one of those short term blips until a new flyer or promotion comes out).
