All Hollywood studios now lined up behind Blu-Ray, last domino falls

All six major Hollywood studios are now in the Blu-ray DVD camp, a day after Toshiba pulled the plug on HD DVD and Blu-ray became effectively the only next-generation game in town.

Paramount Home Entertainment quietly came onboard via a statement issued Wednesday to The Hollywood Reporter: "We are pleased that the industry is moving to a single high-definition format, as we believe it is in the best interest of the consumer," the statement read. "As we look to (begin) releasing our titles on Blu-ray, we will monitor consumer adoption and determine our release plans accordingly."

The story is too old to be commented.

Next news coming up, they line up in single file.

Hmm... lets see here. There's only one HD disc format left on the market, what do you THINK the movie studios are going to do? They want to sell their damn movies, don't they?

Movie Studio Exec #1: So, Toshiba pulled the plug on HD-DVD, I guess that means we're going to Blu-Ray now.

Movie Studio CEO: Nah. We'll just stop selling movies.

<YAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWN>

Not like gamers don't like movies? I mean, if you already forked out money for an HD tv and an HD game system, why would you care what happens with HD movies? What a yawn fest /end sarcasm

aggh im on fire3351d ago

Maybe if they started dropping there prices for blue ray discs it would be in the interests of the consumer.... i mean £25 for a film in the UK.

Iamback3351d ago

now it is going to happen, sooner than you think

resistance1003351d ago

You should do what i do and order them fron dvd.co.uk most are only around 15-17quid, also check out Zavvi now and then as they often have 3 for 2 deals

ChrisGTR13351d ago

since when is this site called news 4 movie enthusiest?? ohh right.. its just the sony fanboys putting up all of this crap

Ghoul3351d ago

its not only about sony but every future gaming media pc AND consoles

or do you really believe the xbox720 wont come out with a bluray drive ?

power0919993351d ago

This is called News for Gamers.

If you noticed however the good folks who put this website together gave us a link called Industry News, and Tech.

Sony has made Blu-Ray part of the "Industry", and Blu-Ray is a Technology. I guess that means it falls under both categories.

If you do not wish to read NON-Gaming news your best bet is to not click on the link.

Just a thought.

ChrisGTR13351d ago

honestly they need to make some kinda tab to block other news.i just want ps3,360 news. and not all this BS blue ray winning hd dvd loosing crap that comes up every 5 news post.

Anego Montoya FTMFW3351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

this wouldn`t be posted.

i swear some people believe this site was made for them.

those people are ignorant.

ChrisGTR13351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

@ 3.4
and THATS exactly what i meant in my first post! the people posting this crap are sony fanboys. i have a ps3 too but seriously this news is just annoying as hell, every 5 posts is something about blueray or hd dvd. and those dumbasses are posting em both cause they assosiate hd dvd to 360 just cause there was an add on.

damn it wtf and now i have a bubble less.. great.. god damn it i hate sony fanboys!this site is full of these idiots. you cant even say anything negative about blueray or the sony duchebag patrol comes over to flame and take away bubbles.

Anego Montoya FTMFW3351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

some people are into this stuff.

your not.

some are.

just like NDP/Vg numbers.

some people are into that.

if you don`t like don`t comment.

that`s the beauty of N4G, there`s a million other things for YOU.

btw, yes people link 360 and HD-DVD, but that`s MSFTs fault not anyone here.

power0919993351d ago

I agree to a point.

The fact of the matter is though that it's a storage medium.

Yes if it was not in a PS3 it probably wouldn't be posted but it is still tech news.

N4G gave us an area for tech news.

I have to agree though, I would like to see a personalized filter so that we can choose what news we see on the front page.

I think that would be a really nice addition to the site.

Who knows. Maybe we will get it at some point.

Anego Montoya FTMFW3351d ago

i agree.

100%

it`s a choice.

but for people to say.

1.rumors
2.hardware/software numbers
3.tech news

shouldn`t be on here....is getting a bit natzi w/ it.

IMO.

like you said, there should be a filter.

ChrisGTR13351d ago

LastDance3351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

then why are you still here? I think you just pretending you hate this news. Are you being bashful christopher?

haha.

Nah seriously if you dont like it your not being force to read it. Or be here.

... are you sure you have a ps3 or are you telling a fib?

Ps. i bubbled you up because i feel bad hehe.

cartman3133351d ago

Nobody forced you to read it...God, are people really that stupid?

robbo9183351d ago

Chris can't see there ARE tabs at the top and clicking PS3 gives you PS3 news, X360 gives you X360 news...wow nice concept there and so tough to figure out. He takes the time to complain about it on a total of FOUR comments and says its a waste of his time...wow.

Here in the US (Not sure of the conversion) I can get new blu-rays for $20. That's as much as Wal-mart sells new DVD's for. Just have to know where to shop.

Panthers3351d ago

Walmart is awesome. I wouldn't get BR movies any where else unless they didnt have them.
