I've only seen Blu-ray burners for PC, but they're way too expensive.

It's better to get a PS3.

pioneer has a $300 blu-ray reader/dvd+-RW pc drive according to anandtech a couple days ago. no idea when or where you can get it.

It's the planned centerpiece of my planned htpc.

You can use the 360's add-on hddvd drive on a pc i've heard.

why don't you wait for the guaranteed BUGs to be worked out.

HD + early adoption = sore ass, lost money.

make sure you buy the stuff when the industry actually gets around to making it all work properly.

LiteOn LH-2B1S 2x BD-R/E Blu-Ray Writer, SATA, Black (Retail)
Manufacturer: LiteOn
SKU: 9361
Part No: LH-2B1S

requires - HDCP capable graphics card with 256MB RAM, PCI Express x16, 1920x1200 resolution, 32bit color. HDCP capable Monitor or TV for High Definition digital output.

{probably need Windows (SHI-)VISTA as well}

but I don't know how it will work with the new ATI card that haven't come out yet.
