Rest in Peace HD DVD, you were never going to win this battle

But then Microsoft will tell you this was the plan all along and that digital download is the future and that it is them and not sony who have won.

You've got to laugh lol

An example of the BBC being neural.

I'm sure to make it fair they had to have someone say 'its to early to call yet' !!!

lol, its true the BBC are as PC as you get.

Saying that they are funded by the public so its not surprising (via money from TV liecencing) they stay as unbised as they can not to offend anyone.

Still im just gald that the £800 ($1600) (PS3 £425 + 25 Blu-ray films totaling about £375 quid) i have invested in blu-ray won't go to waste =D

How the hell can someone say its too early to say. How the hell could HD-DVD beat blu-ray now.

I take it curry's still have alot of HD DVD players they want to get rid of first lol.

Still its ironic that they have said that considering curry's no longer support HD DVD

expertly assassinate every supporter of Blu-Ray and plant C4 in every Blu-Ray section of every retailer and then feed everyone with subliminal messages

as i said- simple

Let's not post this everytime a news outlet declares blu ray the winner. It's done.

It's GDC time, surely there as to be more than just this.
