As for the HD-DVD vs. Bluray war, it's not to replace DVD's. DVD's never replaced VHS for the majority, and i'm sure it's the same with the next-gen formats. They will just be for those who are interested in HD media.
But HD-DVD is getting it's soul ripped from it's body.

LP to Tape, Tape to CD, Dos to Windows, VHS to DVD etc.
Writing could be on the wall for HDDVD
Do me a favor.
Actually READ some of the posts in this forum.
If you can go for more than five pages(and there's a few thousand of them), without finding at least ten threads of people saying why they are upset at sony, ticked off becuase there are no games coming out, upset that Sony is allowing Microsoft to 'steal' all the exclusives and third party titles away from Sony, then either you've got the best set of blinders I've ever seen, or you have a different definition of complaining.
Do all of the fans $#@! and moan? Nope. Of course not.
I'm just saying that there is a large faction, on these very boards who complain about everything that Sony is doing wrong, and there is also a faction that smile and say oh hey Sony can do no wrong, no matter what they do.
The point is, if this many people complain about sony on the PS3 Forums, just imagine what it's like out there in the 'real' world.
I mean a lot of people(not all) that come to a PS3 forum, are already huge PS3 fans in the first place, and if they're complaining...
I think you get the point.
Man, you are so mixed up, it is hard to know where to start.
its not just 1 movie studio. MS also has close ties with peter jackson and wingnut. for any LOTR fans, you will probably NEVER see it on blue ray.
Film studio dumps Lord of the Rings director
I have an HDDVD player, and there are plenty of new movies comming out. Yes, for now its missing some major titles because of the wars, but as time goes on, they will rerelease everything on blueray to HDDVD.
If you take PS3 sales out of the equasion, blueray doesnt even come close. If you figure that only 10-15% of america has HD capabilities, and maybe half of that has 1080i or 1080p capabilities, you really see how few people who have bought a PS3 are going to use it for the blueray. There fore ps3 sales included in blueray sales really is false. Just like most things sony does.
seriously... get off the fanboy crap and look around.
02-04-2007 #34What is the reasoning for paying 200 more for a console for 1 game?!? Not to mention some of the games will be up to $10 bux more on ps3 than 360
I give it three more months and Universal will end the war by opting to go blu-ray.
Of course they are gonna disemvow him. He's suing them for money they are F'in him out of. If someone owed you another 100 mill, you sure as hell would be going after it. After the lawsuit is settled, clearer heads will prevail. They have a goldmine with Jackson and the LOTR series. Giving it to another person will more than likely kill that mine... and they know it. the luer of big $$$$ from another jackson/wingnut film will bring them all back to the table.
as for the other crap. Sony's sales are sucking big time. For a new system, they are doing horrible. They sure as hell cant keep up with the Wii, and nowhere close with the360. Its time to take off the fanboy shades. If and when the PS3 dies, it takes blueray with it, and vice versa. They are loosing their developers and thier fans at a record pace. If HD DVD dies, its not gonna take the 360 with it. Thats why theres no HDDVD drive in the 360. Sure, it would jack up sales and make it look more popular, like the PS3 did with blueray, but what happends if the system dies??? If the PS3 and/or blueray fails, Sony will likely not recover. If HDDVD fails, MS will bat an eyelash and shrug their shoulders.
Let me pose a question. In the last... 30 yrs, Sony has tried many times to make a new format standard. Which one has ever lasted???
BETA??? UMD??? MINIDISK??? hmm....... now blueray....... i see another stinker for Sony... track records mean alot.. Sony's ship is riding on the PS3 and blueray, thats why they are bundled together. Sink or Swim... and the PS3 is ... starting to sink. Blueray has a headstart movie wise in the format battle. It may be enough to win finally. But is it enough to save PS3? If blueray becomes standard, people will buy ps3s for blueray playback until blueray players become cheaper. once that happends, whats the need for that PS3 that your paying 200 more for to play the exact same games you could be playing on another system, with the same graphix and gameplay, but better online???? makes no sence to me.
oh n BTW, if you go back, there have been many 360 titles that have released at the 4999 range. find PS3 titles that have launched, or in fairness, will launch at that price.
oh wait... sony is ALREADY concidering a price cut for the PS3, because sales are sooooo slow. ahahahah, there is no shortage of PS3's anywhere ive heard of. Its still so hard to find a Wii though.. funny huh... all that touting about "cell processors" , "blue ray" , and "sixaxis"(which is a cheap rip of the tech in the Wii), and people are going to the cheaper, technologically outdated system with the new controller. Guess that doesnt bode well for PS3, fanboys.
I found the official HD-DVD mascot!

Much better news would have made this a thread on its own but here you go anyways....
Blu-ray outsells HD-DVD by 3:1
Posted Feb 03, 2007 at 04:21PM by Kyle M. Listed in: Blu-ray, HD-DVD Tags: Sony
We had some interesting comments on our last article, which covered Sony's good feelings about Blu-ray. One comment by Mr. Common Sense stood out: "It's going to be years before there is a clear winner. It's pretty stupid to say there is one at this point." (Who said we don't read the comments?)
This comment made a lot of sense (excuse the pun). After all, it isn't over till the fat lady sings, right? Well, Sony might want to claim an early victory with the recently-released Nielsen VideoScan results coming in and showing that Blu-ray discs are outselling HD-DVDs by over 2:1.
The actual figures say that for the week ending January 7, for every 47.14 HD-DVDs movies sold, there are 100 Blu-Ray movies sold. But the gap is getting bigger, with the week ending January 14 providing statistics to show that the amount of HD-DVDs sold is more like 38.36 for every 100 Blu-Rays sold. These figures include only video sales and no games.
There's no clue as to whether this relates to the launch of the PS3, but with almost 2 million PS3s now circulating worldwide, Sony's next-gen console has to be influencing sales in some way. And with the European launch not far off, will the gap between HD-DVD and Blu-ray sales increase even more?

Yeah, it sucks that PS3 owners had to wait a month or two before another AAA title comes out, as opposed to all the 360 owners that wait much longer... And, it was nice there was an AAA title out at launch that people are still playing because it's great, not because there's nothing else to play... We're getting more great titles sooner than we did with the PS1 or PS2, so I have ZERO complaints...
Anyways... at this point what's happening is that we're seeing PS3 owners buying up Blu-Ray movies like select few people DIDN'T THINK would happen... And shows the potential each PS3 sold has to the industry... Really, at this point, it'd be the best for the industry for Universal to support BOTH formats... and if that happens, all major players will be supporting Blu-Ray, and that'd put the seal on it... Afterall, Blu-Ray has more support right now than HD-DVD does... As long as there's no money deals with Universal right now going on, I don't see them holding out too much longer as they'd like to cash in probably as well seeing Blu-Ray is selling...

Sony sometimes fails, and sometimes they have a success. How else do you create a new format? One takes a chance. It either will succeed or sink.
Oh, and also blu-ray is spelt without an "e".
I think a lot of people are overlooking Matsu****a's role in BluRay development. It's really not a Sony only format like UMD was or even Betamax. A lot of big industry players were lined up for BluRay long before Toshiba even dreamed of starting a format beyond the DVD disc.
This isn't about Sony dropping a proprietary format on everyones lap, it's just an execution of a gameplan that has been in the making for quite some time. Do people think it's some kind of mistake that Universal is carrying the HD-DVD format all by themselves? For all of microsofts bluster in 2005 and 2006, their add-on device to the 360 doesn't do nearly enough for a format hinging it's bets on a name alone..
BluRay will be the next Compact Disc, not Betamax. Anyone with a shred of intelligence can go to the BluRay associations website and see that they have all their ducks in a row and have marching orders. Meanwhile, the HD-DVD camp is spinning in place and all they have to say for themselves is "Betamax was made by Sony"... Money walks and the bullcrap talks. I can't even imagine what the HD-DVD camp is thinking. I know Bill Gates wanted to create competition for BluRay diodes to set back the PS3 but now that Sony and Matsu****a have new fabrication facilities up and running they might as well cash in their chips now and roll over.
Hell, I expect to see Apple laptops with BluRay drives by 2008!
all the other stuff is just everyones "i love bluray" fanboyisms. It will be years before anything major dies at either side. Keep saying that only 1 studio supports hddvd, you might believe its true. Just also helps that the one that your saying is one of the biggest if not the biggest in the world.
