Dave Karraker, senior director fo corporate communications for Sony Computer Entertainment America, shot me a response late last night to Microsoft's HD-DVD announcment in Japan.
How the hell did this get approved? The article is over a year old!
This is from 9/21/06. How is the blue hell is this news?
It is quite funny, now, though to see all the Blu-ray bashing commments on kotaku from this article.
Yeah, these comments are after the E3 FUDaganda; Nice to see most of them are eating their words now.
When I was reading the comments I actually got a good laugh especially knowing that BD is the winning format and that although it may not be fully needed for all games, it sure does make for a great movie experience IMHO.
Succint, sharp, cutting, and to the point! Dave Karraker makes a point by point boast/ response to the Microsoft statement/ abandonment of HD DVD. These Sony/ Microsoft heads are just like b*tchy girls arguing in a nightclub toilet over who is dressed the best! Makes me laugh anyway!
Actually this article is from SEP 21 2006... it's about the anouncement of the HD-DVD drive for the Xbox 360, not the abondonment of the same.
Interesting, someone disagreed with me. I guess he's not old enough to know how to read dates in articles.
this being approved shows N4G is broken.....severely
I was thinking something was fishy with this article
I posted it by mistake.:)
First, at the current situation, PC games and the X360 already PROOVEs that in the current situation, we do not need an overpriced, slow format.
I don't know how many times it needs to be said, but here goes AGAIN:
Currently there is about 2 games that span across TWO dvds. If you are going to argue that this is the next step in game formats, then you missed a step: MULTI-DISK games. We havn't even reached the mutli disk part of the generation... Not only that, we have very few games that fill a regualar dvd. If a company does fill a full DVD9, then they are NOT compressing, or using that space properly. Hell, PC games are no where near filling 1 dvd, very few expand more then one also. How many examples can I give you? Oblivion? Gears of War? Hell, Quake wars on PC will use a regular DVD, and it uses much bigger textures then the PS3 games will (mega textures that are a few megs in size...)
You people seriously need to get the TRUTH behind it. This is not about the games, its about sony pushing their new format, they dont give a f.u.k about how much space it gives developers... that is just an excuse that you idiots keep thinking. In 6 years, yes, DVD will be hitting its prime, but then there will possibly be blue ray/hd to the rescue, but as it stands, the format is SLOW, and UNUSED (or used out of lazyness in compression etc).
