What is up with all these PS3 dudes coming in here and dropping one liners? Got nothing else to play, ehmmm, excuse me, nothing else to talk about in that PS3 thread? Just leave us alone people, we don't want you here.
i find it hilarious. as if the hd dvd format fails, like microsoft wont make a blu ray dvd add on
i have a 360. i've had it since day one.
i also happen to have a ps3. i play both systems. oh, i have a wii as well.
never have i bashed on the 360, even when i got the rrod. sent it in, got it back, was good to go ever since.
but what we are talking about here is a disc format, not games. its very obvious that hd-dvd is dying since everything that happened around CES. i never said microsoft would never make a blu-ray add on. it just doesn't make sense to me to spend money on a dying format, just because its cheap. i'm not sure that worked out for people when laser discs went outta style. its better off waiting for the format wars to finish for sure, then get those movies you really want on one format, instead of buying the movies you want on hd-dvd now because they are cheap, and then having to buy them AGAIN on the chosen format that wins.
good job on making assumptions because you failed.
Well in that case, let me pop in my Batman Begins Blu-ray... Whoops! No Batman Blu-ray yet...
Warner's seismic shift late last week to Blu-ray exclusivity
That appears to be on the verge of changing, however, following
. Speaking with High-Def Digest, Tsujishara stated that the studio is preparing several Profile 1.1 titles --specifically the library of nearly a dozen Warner titles previously released on HD DVD that used that format's HDi technology to deliver the studio's "In Movie Experience" picture-in-picture video commentary and other interactive features."We held off releasing them on Blu-ray because we wanted to be able to have the full interactivity
," said Tsujishara. "At this point in time, we're still working out all the kinks [with the technology], but they will be released soon.
Two titles specifically cited by Tsujishara as being prepped for Blu-ray release were 'Batman Begins,' and the blockbuster 'Matrix' trilogy
, although he stopped short of naming actual street dates."
So it's coming soon. Yes, its not out now. Its not a title that won't ever be available for blu-ray......because its coming soon. But, if you want The Dark Knight when it releases on a format around Christmas (just guessing on that date since its coming out in the summer).......it will be blu-ray only, not hd.
and you arent making assumptions about hd dvd right?
well, i most certainly am. but my assumptions are based of numerous reports and opinions from tv, internet, blogs etc. Also based off real world sales numbers and major movie studies becoming blu-ray exclusive or just backing them period.
the assumption the poster made about me was based off one line. so, they're not even close to being the same. I didn't even have the ps3 nba2k8 league in my sig, so I don't even know why he assumed I was a Sony guy. I'm not, I just own the system. I'm a casual gamer so it doesn't really matter to me who 'wins'. I have all 3 systems, why would I care?
And once again, Sony did not invent nor does it own Blu-Ray, it was developed and is owned by the Blu-ray Disc Association. There are many companies involved here, not the least of which are Sony, Apple, Dell, HP, Panasonic, Mitsubishi, LG, Samsung, etc., etc. They did not develop it like 'betamax' or 'md', its entirely different. People get really confused and assume Sony invented it because they were the first with a blu-ray player and are a major player in this format war. Its true that Sony has alot to gain if blu-ray wins, but they did not 'invent' it.
That last part was not towards u Noblekane, btw.
So, anyways, it just seems very unlikely at this stage for HD-DVD to succeed. Is it possible? Sure, anything can happen. But the chances right now are very slim with the way things have been going for them. But if you want to go out and buy the player, by all means go ahead since its price is really low now, but don't complain if later down the line if the format is no longer supported with new content. The warning signs are here now.
Anyways, this is a 360 thread. I'm not trying to bring 'hate' or 'ps3 love' or whatever it may be. If its wrong to support both systems then oops
