Michael Bay frustrated with DVD, wants Blu-ray instead
Filmmaker Michael Bay has expressed his dismay for the recent DVD iteration of his latest flick, 'Transformers'.
The filmmaker exclaims his frustration on the new Transformers DVD, which has sold 8.3 million copies since its release last week: "It's a good DVD. But not as good as it could have been," he says.
The sales total made Transformers the year's fastest-selling DVD in North America, according to Paramount Home Entertainment.
Not only does he criticise the quality of DVD, but further goes onto state his position on Blu-ray: "It's short-sighted and it has delayed consumers' moving to HD (home video)," he added.
"As a director, my critical eye is that Blu-ray is where my money is. Consumers are smart, and they are going to wait it out."
Blu-ray seems to be a major determinant to Michael Bay in terms of where his money "is at." Bay voiced his displeasure (again) that Transformers would not be available on Blu-ray and that he was rethinking his plan to direct a sequel--but is that what the format war thinks?
