Could the rumors that Blu-ray is the replacement for HD-DVD be true? Read more to learn what could change your ideas on purchasing DVDs this year.
go now my friend and join Betamax in the land of Forgotten Technologies ...... .... ...."The JOEY has Spoken"
its lameness and biasim is so evident but its stupidity is even more so once you read this... ""I know what I want and I want a Playstation 3 that is powerful and supports all three medias; DVD, Blu-ray, and HD-DVD."" lol
Blu-Ray is the replacement of the DVD not the HD-DVD. This format never took off or anything. Dumb post.
We get it! BluRay won!
Stop hddvd!!!! Blu ray is the only format that will replace dvd now!!!! It's over, get over it!!!
Listening to the radio 1 today and the tech guy has just said on national radio for the whole of the UK. Not to buy HD-DVD as BLu Ray has won the war. Another Nail in the Coffin. Everyday people now starting to hear Blu ray won. The end is near
Well I agree that Blu-Ray will be the winner, but that was some of the most biased writing I've seen in a while. Playstaion 3 wins because it has more features huh? I think one or two people might disagree with you on that one. Affordability and Playability sells game consoles. I own a PS3 and only use it to play Blu-Rays because I don't enjoy any of the available games. Microsoft's add on HD drive is a better approach. Give the people choice. Now if it only played Blu-Rays...
FIRST: Yes, we get it, Blu-ray is the big winner... SECOND: Not sure that the PS3 is better than the Xbox 360 simply because of Blu-ray. I own both consoles now (FINALLY, took a lot of saving, shopping around, coupons, and even layaway!), and each console has strong selling points over the other. The PS3 has Blu-ray built-in and that is sweet, but it cost Sony big-time and actually helped Microsoft build its big lead. On the other side of the coin, the 360 has a better library of games and gave you a lot more bang for your buck, but its headstart led to faulty consoles that stunted its growth. Playstation Network for free is nice as well over Xbox Live for $50, but PSN simply cannot compare to Xbox Live in downloads/features. You get your $50 back just in all of the free demos/videos/trailers, literally HUNDREDS of them, while there's only a few of each on PSN, and Xbox Achievements on 360 are a huge addictive hit with gamers. I still say most hardcore/old school gamers will want BOTH systems, if you want to play Mass Effect AND Final Fantasy XIII, Forza 2 AND Gran Turismo 5, Halo 3 AND Killzone 2, Splinter Cell Conviction AND Metal Gear Solid 4. It all breaks down to this for me: Xbox 360 for games library/Xbox Live, and PS3 for Sony Exclusives/Blu-ray. If you consider yourself a TRUE gamer, you'll save those pennies, drop the fanboyism, shop around, and get both... PS: How come retailers never put PS3 games on sale as much as 360 games? Now THAT is something we gamers should be complaining about, not PS3 vs. 360, but how games are too expensive....
I heard it was caused by the impact of awesomeness that is Blu-ray and the abandonment of a company called Microsoft.
But imagine how drastically different things would have been right now if Warner had decided to go HD exclusive instead.
But boy is this 'article' stupid.
I think your in the wrong section little guy. No one wants to hear your stupid fanboy remarks.
I'm excited as well for a Blu-ray add on for the 360. It is probably bound to happen eventually. Probably when they do though there will be talk of the next console which will make me wait. If the PS3 comes down in price (I'm a cheap broke college guy) then I will buy that.
I guess my HD-DVD player will become a collectors item someday. Honestly, I would rather have this format war be done with than defend my purchase. It works out better for everybody in the long run. Fortunately I have PS3 with Blu-ray as well.
Boring everyone knows bluray one and that ps3 is better who cares just play ur games already seeya on cod4
