HDTV Super Bowl Buying Spree?

engadgethd-super-bowl-poll.jpg

I enjoy the Super Bowl as much as the next person (particularly now that the Cowboys have been demoralized), but I’ve always thought it a bit absurd to buy a new TV for one game. Apparently so do more than 85% of the readers over on EngadgetHD. In a pre-Super-Bowl poll, respondents showed they are generally not inclined to upgrade in the next week.

Super Bowl aside, if you’re planning to upgrade to HD anyway, 2008 is a good year to do it. Take a look at just a small sampling of the HD content coming in the next 12 months.

UPDATE: The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has announced the results of a new study by Sports Video Group saying the Super Bowl this year is expected to drive the purchase of just under two and a half million HD sets.
