...will what ever end? The HD-DVD / BluRay war? I assume it will end when one format beats out the other.

Too bad, Blu-ray has so much more potential for capacity.

I thought the link would be self explanatory.

08-20-2007, 06:16 PM
I dunno. I really think Blu-Ray might pull out ahead.

08-20-2007, 07:00 PM
what about regular DVD? will all movies still come out on that?

08-20-2007, 07:50 PM
Yeah. It will be a while before DVD gets phased out.

08-20-2007, 07:53 PM
that's good then. i dont have any of that hd tv or dvd stuff yet and right now regular dvd quality is good enough for me.

08-20-2007, 08:16 PM
yeah, plus as long as all movies still come out on dvd without any of that exclusive stuff that hd and blu ray is doing, I think it'll do fine.

So, if the Star Wars movies were even released into high definition, they'd be on Blu-ray?

Michael Bay is apparently pissed with Paramount going exclusively to hd-dvd as well. from his blog:

I want people to see my movies in the best formats possible. For them to deny people who have Blu-ray sucks! They were progressive by having two formats. No Transformers 2 for me!



I hope he doesn't mean it, but he does make a point about how this is all ridiculous.

That's why I'm going to wait to see what comes out on top. I don't even want to buy a player that can play both formats because, should the player die and only one format makes it mainstream, I'll be stuck with movies that I can't play.

I read about Michael Bay as well. To think, all this time, all we had to do to get him to stop making movies was to drop the Blu-ray format...

: O

Do you think that would work with Ewe Boll too?

: O

Do you think that would work with Ewe Boll too?

We'd have to let him solely use Betamax tapes and even then... he might continue... :|

Oh dear God. :p

Well, here's to hoping the next one will be better and atleast more up to par with the anime-series. :)

As for the whole high definition debacle, I won't be buying anything until they can all agree on one new format, not 2.
Here's to hoping Blu-Ray loses. :D

dvds for me, please.

I'm poor.
