A Consumer's Cheat Sheet to HD DVD's Death and Blu-ray's Victory
I'm so glad I didn't fork the money for any DVD players until this was settled. Blu-Ray.. Interesting, very interesting. I'm sure Microsoft is bitter =P
And the winner is.... regular old DVDs with upconvert players.
@2 Why would Microsoft be bitter? They were one of the backers of HD-DVD but they weren't backing it very aggressively. The only way to watch HD-DVD on a 360 is to buy an additional external drive (and you can bet your ass there will be a similar Blu-ray drive soon enough).
Other than that, Microsoft isn't really a hardware producer. They didn't have much at stake in the HD format war to begin with.
this is old news brotha. commonn
Meanwhile Australia has announced to NATO and the world they will no longer be in Iraq.
Wish we could do that ... TODAY!
I guess this is good news for me, since my company gave us each a PS3 at our Xmas party. I think I own all of five DVDs, though, so it's not like I have a huge library to replace. Also, the PS3 upconverts...
@3 for the win.
Sony is such a pile of shit.
This war was supposed to go on forever, and continue driving down the prices of regular DVDs, which are still perfectly valid forms of technology for the next 15 years.
It's just like the 80s all over again. Damn BetaMax!
Wait for the PS3. They'll have a slimmer version out soon that doesn't have the fucking power supply in the console. And it wont look like a fucking George Foreman grill.
You don't need a BluRay player right now, anyway. Wait for more titles and price drops. When $20 becomes the standard price for a movie, it's ready.
Mr. Poe is correct.
