"Welcome to OWNEDVILLE, Population: HD-DVD. We will enjoy sleeping on our GIANT PILE OF MONEY, but I'm sure you guys are doing fine, too."

Official Statement.... "WOOHOO!!"

LJWooly3254d ago

At least this 'war' wasn't nearly as long or as costly as the vHS vs. Betamax war. Thank god...

DrPirate3254d ago

I hear that.

No longer will these articles about movie formats be spammed all over the site.

fenderputty3254d ago

can we finally stop with the format war articles? It's over, toshiba has commented, BD has commented, Sales increase articles have been covered, MS take on the issue has been covered, DD has been covered and so has everything else.

Let's move on and be happy this format can take off to the mainstream now.

Silellak3254d ago (Edited 3254d ago )

I agree. I think every possible variation of every side of the format war has been posted.

It's over. Blu-ray has triumphed, largely due to the PS3. Digital downloads are not serious competition. Sony was right, the doubters (myself included) were wrong.

Now let's all get back to arguing about whose system can kick whose system's ass. My money's still on the Atari 2600; it'll make a comeback, trust me. Moon Lander 2: Land Harder is THE exclusive game to watch out for in 2009.

skitzoid3254d ago

Now we are going to hear a ton of blog and lower end site articles of how Digital Download is going to eventually beat out BluRay.... blah, blah, blah, blah, BLECH!

It will never end. People need a reason to b|tch.

AllroundGamer3254d ago

now we will see hopefully some price drop on the BD movies and blank BD-Roms.

LJWooly3254d ago

Yeah, that's my only major qualm with BluRay; the price is still pretty high. I'm glad BluRay won, though.
