High-Def DVD Goes to Next Level With Blu-ray

The high-definition-video war may be over now that Toshiba has conceded defeat for its ailing HD DVD format, but those interested in buying a high-def Blu-ray Disc player still might want to wait for new features coming in the fall.

Sure, existing Blu-ray machines can play the nearly 500 Blu-ray titles available. They can deliver gorgeous, top-of-the-line 1080p resolution on compatible high-def televisions. But the next crop of Blu-ray players will be compliant with the upcoming Profile 2.0 standard, which adds Internet connectivity to the machines via a feature called BD-Live.

If you just want to watch a HD movie without massive downloading. Which is really the whole point, isn't it!

"Will BD-Live-enhanced discs work with current-generation Blu-ray players? Generally, yes, Benedetto says. 'The BD-Live feature just won't be available.'"

Umm, what the hell does "generally, yes" mean? Obviously the BD-Live features aren't going to work on Profile 1.0/1.1 players, but this makes it sounds like getting a Profile 2.0 disc to boot up in a Profile 1.0/1.1 player is going to be a crapshoot.

Blu-ray is the future of the world. Embrace it, and stay away from 360's.

you're just trolling this site looking for a place to add another comment for your M$ paycheck, or are you still paying them monthly? I mean, you really should get paid for all of the anti-Sony lies you spread throughout N4G. If you're going to ruin a site, at least get paid for it.

I have a PS3, so I can use those features. But all I'm really interested in is the movie. I do love the special features section on the BD, but that's all the extra content I need. Anyone else the same?
