When Paramount Home Entertainment decided to support HD DVD exclusively, Michael Bay was vocally opposed. Since the decision came just as his Transformers would debut on high-definition home video, Bay threatened to back out of the sequel.
He took back his drastic comments and is hard at work developing Transformers 2, but now that Blu-ray is the format that is gaining momentum, Bay cannot help but remind us he told us so.
"Blu-ray's better, and I told everyone," Bay said at the Visual Effects Society's sixth annual award show, where he presented the award for animated character in a motion picture. "I was very vocal about it. I knew HD [DVD] was not going to make it."
