Wall-E is a better animation, hands down. Better story, better acting, better CGI.

Get an Xbox, they've gone down in price and the DVD playback is great, I get High-def capabilities. Though I do have the "elite" black Xbox, so not sure if it's different than the white one.

The black one, does it have more features or is it just a look thing?

The idea that Wall-E could only appeal to children strikes me as sheer ignorance boarding on idiocy; makes me think that whoever says that hasn't even seen the film or wasn't able to look past it simply being animated and subscribe that the flawed and dumb idea that all animated films that have cute characters are for children and only children. Wall-E is among the darker and more mature animated family films I've seen (particularly the beginning). And it is more touching and powerful than any adult-themed drama I've seen this year.

It has a serious message and critiques that would simply go over a child's head.

Children will like it because it has cute characters and gorgeous visuals. Adults will like it because it has surprisingly dark themes and implications and a powerful love story and a shockingly unique and creative style.

Very nicely put. I do believe it has its flaws, though- like [SPOILER - highlight to read]: the overextended ending and Wall-e's numerous 'deaths'.

Buy a PS3 instead. It comes with a Blu-Ray drive, and you also get the greatness that is the PS3. Xbox 360 doesn't support Blu-Ray. Microsoft supported HD-DVD during the "Format Wars" and lost to Sony's alliance with Blu-Ray.

On the whole the X-Box is pretty much better. If you absolutely want a Blu Ray player for some reason, I guess the PS3 can be considered though.

Wait wait wait wait wait . . . . . . I thought the Xbox DID have Blu-ray. Does it not?? And I thought you'd be able to stream movies in HD from it as well. confused

you can download HD movies from xbox live but the white xbox has component and not HDMI so HD isn't as good from component

and no...xbox went with the epic failness that is HD-DVD so had to scrap that after blu-ray won the hi-def race...and thus are waiting for a blu-ray add on box for the xbox (providing sony don't try and block it given they have a big say in what happens with blu-ray technology as they were one of the founding companies...although it's likely they will allow it as it would also mean more profit for them)

How much better is Blu-Ray over HD-DVD? Because my movies look great on my TV with the HDMI output, have a nice crisp picture.

There is no difference as far as I know for the quality between the two, just blu ray can hold extra stuff on the disc I believe, but the quality is the same last time I asked.

Oooooooo got my WALL.E dvd today, in special eco packaging... yay.

Thanks Imp, for the knowledge, I've been researching the PS3 now all morning.

Hmm, so now I need to decide if I should just download movies or rent them. Decisions decisions.

For DVDs, right? But you wouldn't be able to play Blu-ray discs? confused

Anyway, so I should be getting Wall-E in the mail today, so I'll probably watch it Wednesday night since I'll finally have some alone time.

Yeah, the black Xbox has the HDMI output (guess the white-box doesn't?), which gives me an excellent picture on my Hi-Def TV when watching DVDs, can't play the Blu-Ray though.

Do you ever download movies? If so, are they in HD and is the quality good?

you can download HD movies from xbox live yes...and the quality is good...takes a while though...although on the white xbox you'd have to use component video cables (analogue) and on the black xbox elite you get HDMI

although your tv has to be compatible...some cheaper HD tv's are only component and dont have an HDMI port

I haven't, but since they're HD, I'd imagine they would look as good as the other HD movies I watch. (Basically what Jaden said)

Before you buy either an Xbox or PS3, make sure your TV has at least one HDMI input. IMO, Hi-Def isn't worth it unless your going through an HDMI port.

EDIT: The black Xbox comes with a HDMI cable, which would cost you an average of $60 if you had to buy it separate, just an FYI.
