"Mission: Impossible III" is the first title to come out on DVD, Blu-Ray DVD and HD-DVD at the same time. Does anyone care? No. The BBC says quite rightly that the competing high-def formats will cancel each other out, keeping early adopters confused and unwilling to commit and besides, people aren't looking for a new DVD format that means more money and doesn't really shine until you buy a flat panel TV anyway. I say, if you're thinking about the next generation of DVD players, you must wait -- definitely upgrade your TV screen and then sit tight for a year.
