Correct, I don't have an HDTV, nor the interest in getting one soon, and I'm more interested in upgrading my PC.
I didn't think the DVD version of Dragon's Lair was that bad?
Again, I haven't seen any BluRay/HDTV games that have wowed me enough to spend $600-$1000 for the player and $500-$3000 for the HDTV, I'll be happy with a SDTV and a Wii...
I also play more games on my PC than console/TV, it's just a personal choice...
