How petty must you be to adopt HD DVD and then shun HD media when Blu-ray wins?

Wizeguy213268d ago

Because it's your only choice for a physical HD copy of a movie! :-(.. But don't worry, this time Its only 1 choice, AND the format will be out longer than a year! haha!

Elven63268d ago

HD DVD sales have still been pretty strong according to some recent reports because its dirt cheap now and liquidators were buying up stock left and right.

Their are people out their who supported HD DVD but are waiting for either cheaper prices or a better 2.0 player that's not the PS3.

This isn't even beating a dead horse, it's taking a dead horse, hanging it by the ceiling and playing pinata with a barbed wired bat.

jlemdon3268d ago

I've always been in the Blu, I have a 360 & PS3 so I would always watch the movies that were available for Hd-dvd at the time then watch Blu-ray movies.:)

Because they have cried all there tears?

Danja3268d ago

because they really have no other choice if they want an HD Format..XD

Elven63268d ago

@ Danja: Their are alternatives, HD VMD, CBHD, etc are all plausible alternatives if someone REALLY wants to avoid Blu Ray.

Ju3268d ago

No they are not. None of these players is available in any major retail store.

ChampIDC3268d ago

Ju, that's why he said REALLY. If somebody wants to avoid Blu-ray that badly, they could with a little extra effort than going to your local retailer.

Boink3268d ago

the best alternative is free HD from the net.

benn enjoying for months now, no expensive player and no expensive discs to buy.

MazzingerZ3268d ago (Edited 3268d ago )

1 reason...HD DVD is dead, gone, mortuus...you don't find HD DVD here in Scandinavia, those sections at any retailer/webstore have been renamed from "HD format" to 'Blu-Ray'

The day Blu-Ray was declared winner it reached news papers, TV, etc...it reached the masses hence the average Joe...before that only 5% of the people knew there was a "HD war" going on...today many of them don't even know there was a format called HD DVD nor care...Blu-Ray = HD for them as you find it anywhere unlike LaserDisc after it came out.

Elven63268d ago

Elven6... Dark Knight wants you!
BLU RAY!

(edit) @elven6... haha nice one :-)

Elven63268d ago

I have Blu Ray, actually I have both formats! :D

Milky Joe3268d ago

Number 1: You're backing a dead horse... moron...

Elven63268d ago

Your point? HD content is HD content regardless of whether the format is still available predominantly in stores.

Fishy Fingers3268d ago (Edited 3268d ago )

Elvan, yes but why continuely invest your money in an all but obsolete product. What happens when your player dies, what you gonna do with your HD collection then, bin them or sell them for pennies? Better to cut your loses now and adopt BR.

Also, still available in stores? No store I've been in. You cant get any new releases.

Milky Joe3268d ago

My point is that if you want to continue to expand your HD library with future releases, you're going to need to move to Blu-Ray.

...It was a joke...

AdolfBinBush3268d ago

dead horse has many uses.. the least they can do with it is poke it.

Milky Joe3268d ago

Yeah, but at least with a dead horse you get that satisfying squelch. Here you'll just get a plasticy tap, which is no fun at all.

tordavis3268d ago

I buy both. I opted for The Ultimate Matrix on HD-DVD because it was half the price of Blu-Ray but the same quality. There are tons of HD-DVD players available and if you are really worried about not finding one if yours breaks, get the Samsung HD-DVD/Blu-Ray combo player. HD-DVD rocks and I can buy movies on the real cheap at inetvideo.com I support both formats.
