Hah hah hah, now that's funny. How ironic, HD DVD could be the "Betamax" of 21st Century, that was created by Sony who now has Blue Ray.
Or they were PS3 owners, which would not surprise me.
It may sound petty, but I hope HD DVD wins the format wars just because I dislike Sony's style of marketing and crappy proprietary and overpriced products.
same like how i hate the apple iCrap...
Which is precisely what I think.
As is, I think in America, BR seems to be the dominant platform. Other places, it's more even.
I do wish both sides would simply come to a consensus and merge the formats. There is so much more money, time and resources being wasted in R&D that could have been used for other things, like producing cheaper players and thereby reducing the cost of the PS3 earlier.
Think about it devs, stop screwing the customer over.
Blu-Ray has already one, fyi
We don't even make the discs anymore because the studios don't want it.
We are even retooling our HD-DVD machine to make 1 layer Blu-Ray Discs.
I'm glad, because I wanted Sony to win, simply because I don't like the xbox 360 lol.
Blu-ray won't win until someone figures out how to get porn on it.
Quote/figures please? Last I knew nobody knew as the numbers vary based upon who you talk to. I think both are going to "lose" in the end, and would love to see a sensible 3rd "standard" come into the mix and put an end to this "war" stuff. So far consumers are losing it.
Dual format players will negate the format wars.
Im not giving any #s out...
You can believe be, or not...
I don't really care.
My father is the VP of CinRam, i recently visited their plant in PA...
