Major anime distributors ADV have announced that they would be releasing their present and future anime titles on Blu-Ray high def from Spring of this year.
Come on this is done, its finish, let HD die with what little dignity it has left. No more Blu-Ray/HD threads needed.
Well it not done yet.
Toshiba is still managing to try and fight back, they are not going to go that easily.
Unless either Paramount or Universal decide to switch to Blu-Ray of Toshiba stops making HD-DVD altogether, we be seeing alot more of this kind of news.
Either way, HD-DVD is dying a slow a painful death.
are u living in this world or another planet?
BD outsells HD DVD 85:15 in NA
BD outsells HD DVD 87:13 in EU
BD outsells HD DVD 98:2 in JAPAN
war was over at the very beginning . Whats worse for Toshiba is the fact that BD standalone players even started outselling their HD DVD players 2:1 in USA (doesnt take ps3 into account)
was there ever really a war? It was finished ages ago
I want this to end aswell, but do you see any 'Toshiba admits defeat and stop producing HD-DVD players' news threads yet?
Find it and post it up.
so ADV and Funimation now supports Blu.
Good for us Anime fans
hahahaahah ha hahha
oh wait, it's already over lol
Now I have to re-buy all of my anime in high def now...not happening.
you've missed the point, you can enjoy NEW and yet to be released anime in hd res now, don't be so cynical!
i had this news up on a blog a few days ago
None other then the Crypt Keeper lmao. h dud R.I.P.
But didnt ADV pull off most of its titles from its official website. They announced that it was a temporary problem and they were working on it. I just hope it doesnt happen. HUGE ANIME FAN HERE.
farewell hd dvd, you were a worthy opponent
Worthy, but not worthy enough.
Once they gave Paramount money for exclusive rights, they signed their own death warrant.
Uh if they're releasing anime in high def on Blu Ray, then that better mean no more punking out and putting like 6 eps on a disc. We all know BR discs are 50 gigs, an entire series PLUS extras better be on that.
