"talk about desperation"

no desperation is bundling a movie with a game machine!

Call it wherever you want. But I think they just find out how to double or even tripple the number of blu-ray disk shipped/sold from a company called Sony. Sony boost the blu-ray disk numbers by bundling with the PS3. Let see how HD-DVD numbers look after this.
"Sony will cut Blue-Ray prices 50% by years end" the same can be said about Sony.

That a good point. However the Euro/Oz launch are getting Casino Royal BR's and PS3 will probably sell alot more in March/April than HDDVD players so those numbers might kind of balance each other out.

Desparation is a Stinky Colonge.

PS3 is making sure of that. Without Hollywood movie studio support HD DVD will never catch on.

BIadestarX4301d ago

You are right... but you know what interest me the most? With all the hollywood support blu-ray is getting, all the PS3 drives out there, all the exclusive studios leaning towards blu-ray the gap between blu-ray and hd-dvd is like less than 2%. barely a difference between day and night.

look, I know blu-ray has more support but... It's not like Hd dvd has non at all, It really does my head in when people say that. Universal are not a small dumb company you know! and yes the ratio of blu ray players out there in the form of Ps3's compared to Hd Dvd players is huge but compare that to how many blu-ray discs sold per machine to Hd dvd's sold per machine and the results are interesting.

That is true people always over exaggerate the truth. Blu--ray is doing ok . I mean most of the movies on BLuray I do want.. But hddvd is not out yet come on .. Just wait hddvd will come back
