I just watch Iron Man in High Definition on my Xbox360 with Media center connectivity.

And all you have to do is Download the WMV HD torrent. Iron man without a blu-ray drive. You literally save $430.

It look awesome in my 32inch HDTV, 4 realz.

Your still bitter that you bought the Xbox 360 add on HD DVD player aka the paper weight?

I used to think those HD 1080p torrents 8 gigs and over were equivalent to blu-ray quality...but i took the jump neway and decided to purchase Transformers and the Spidey Trilogy on blu.

Let me tell u there is a very big difference in quality. All that compression of the file size definitely takes its toll in terms of visual quality on those WMV torrents you boast about. You actually see things that you would never notice on those HD rips. Not to mention the difference in sound quality...man it was overwhelming how much better it sounded.

In short, I'm, purchasing Iron Man on Blu to get the full hi-def experience!

n4g + Second positive bluray article in less than a day?

This cant be true

Snukadaman_3296d ago

When you put that number up to 7.2 million dvds....seems like its quite miniscule...but hey..congrats on that.

Mr_Bun3295d ago

Yeah, I call "selling half a million blu-ray discs positive" as the Iron Man Blu-ray sales equal approx. 20% of the overall sales...In other words...DVD has been in the States for around 11 years, Blu-ray has been around for 2...So 20% very high in such a short term
