Gaming Console Network talks about the official death of the HD DVD format and argues the fact that Sony did in-fact play a huge part in putting the doomed HD DVD format in a early grave.
Lol at the image. "Adrea!"
When rocky says yo adrianne i did it in rocky 2 and she is at home watching and shaking her head saying i love you rocky. That was like the lamest scene in a rocky movie ever. Was pretty much trying to force emotional attachment
funny ass picture.
That picture is GOLD!
This guy is 100% correct. No need to spin the story, just call a spade a spade. The ps3 is what put BR over the top.
10 million+ ps3's vs 1 million HD-DVD players (and not even 1 million HD-DVD players)....HD-DVD can't win against those numbers.
Thats why I never bought the 360 add-on, nor a Blu-ray movie until a winner was chosen. Now I can buy movies with confidence.
but most people believed this would be the case. In the business textbooks this victory for sony et el will be logged as one of the biggest 2 bird one stone type strategies known. (sorry I don't remember the correct business definition)
Wait....why would you have to wait...you're Nostradamus!! Way to be a phony! A big, fat, phony!! That's what you are!!
Who argued that the PS3 didn't tip the scale of the format war? Of course it did. If the PS3 didn't have a built-in Blu-Ray player this war would still be alive and well.
You will find sites that say this... The editor who wrote this actually wrote this because of an article linked to this very site a week or two ago (saying the PS3 is not the reason for Blu-rays impact)...
is the reason that BR won, not a reason, but the reason.
So? Who cares? It's done, finito, kaput. No amount of whinning will bring HD-DVD back, and I'm glad it's dead for good.
Just like this Format war ending very soon, I wish the same happens for the console war...
Blu-Ray was Sony's ONLY focus, from day one...so much so, their games library, and hardware sales suffered because of it. I'm glad MS was smart enough not to wait for HD-DVD, thus delaying the 360's launch for a year. By that time, Sony STILL would've had Blu-Ray in the driver's seat, and MS would've been stuck with having to buy out Toshiba for a proprietery HD-DVD game format.
