...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 dunno. I really think Blu-Ray might pull out ahead.

Yeah. It will be a while before DVD gets phased out.

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:

Quote:
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.


This is just my opinion....

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...

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

Oh dear God.

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.
