I have a rediculously fast fibre connection on some bt trial, but I tend to watch movies quite regularly and that's just not economical.

At the moment and for the foreseeable future its a bad idea... Fact is while most of our lines are copper then we aint gonna have the download speeds to support it. Hmm wanna watch a film?? Ahh just go download it.. Only gonna take an hour or so.

Makes me laugh though... If they didn't think discs were worth it and truly the way forward was digital downloads then why release the HD-DVD add on in the first place??

Yeah right, the Playstation Store is only an imagination of mine and the PSP or the PS3 don't have digital content distribution systems...

But to be honest, Sony's Playstation Store *sucks* because there's no content that'd be remotely interesting.

Not a good idea. As Bungral has said... copper wires are slow and cannot support such a load.

Plus, with all this downloading we are all going to be accused of being pirates. Arrrh!
