Fanboy Poll: Do you have an HDTV?

During his CES speech, Peter Moore said, "A recent study concluded that 9 out of 10 Xbox 360 owners have either purchased or intend to purchase an HDTV in the next six months."

Alright, we understand next-gen gaming will drive HDTV adoption rates higher; that early console buyers tend to be early adopters of all sorts of technology, including high definition television; and, perhaps most of all, we understand that Geometry Wars is killer in HD! That being said, that 9 out of 10 number is still a bit hard to swallow. Let's see where we come out.

HDTV status:
I own one already! Suckers!
I plan on getting one within 6 months
I plan on getting one, but not within 6 months
I don't plan on getting one at all (until they make me!)

Technical mumbo jumbo: this is not a scientific or rigorous poll and is only intended to capture the general consensus of Xbox 360 Fanboy readers. Results will be posted approximately one week after the poll is opened for votes. Sure, you probably could hack this poll if you worked at it, but it’s more fun for everyone if poll results accurately reflect the opinions of all readers, so please refrain from tampering with poll results.

6. Please do not include HDTVs your parents bought. The survey asks 'Do YOU have an HDTV.' If you live with your parents you do NOT have an HDTV, nor do you have any dignity if you are over 25.

7. I have a 36" Panasonic Tao 16:9 CRT HDTV, its the best....I would recommend CRT to anyone who is in the market. If you dont mind having a big set (or you justg dont need to have your tv hanging on the wall), CRTs are by far the cheapest, longest lasting, overall best quality sets. And i got mine out of box from circuitcity 18 months ago for $1099 !!!

9. hey COOter...too bad the average gamer is 28 years old. i guess we should stick to making fun of unhappy teenagers instead of playing games then ?

10. I bask in 100 inches of wall-sized gaming glory. I have a H77 projector; the best on the market (not including the new 1080p's). I also have a 1000-watt 7.1 surround sound system to boot. The 230-watt sub makes for a really great rumbling effect. :-) And it's all wrapped up in a dedicated room just for movies and gaming.

Thank God I have a wonderful wife. *LOL* Once he sawe my room, a co-worker wanted to do the same thing as me, but his wife wouldn't let him "waste" a room on it... and his house is 1000sqft bigger than mine!

11. Yeah, I've got a 73" DLP and a 62" DLP, Abt electronics customer appreciation sale, only 5,000 for 73" of HD glory. Now just waiting til next years sale and hopefully a bigger TV.

12. Well it wouldn't be top of the line if it's not 1080P would it Harry, No....No it wouldn't. Ha Ha Just Kidding.

13. Will use my 17" LCD PC monitor when Amazon finally gets their act together to deliver the appropriate cable (which I ordered in *november*)

14. I already have one + intend on getting a better HDTV LCD for my computer (Dell 30" most likely).

15. Thanks for reminding me COOter to include my HDTV that I bought even though I live with my parents. Note: I'm 16.
