HD DVD beats BluRay

HD DVD has landed a major hit on Blu-Ray, with the Toshiba HD-XE1 winning the Best Hi-Def Player at the Home Cinema Choice awards. The deck saw off competition from two Blu-ray units, by Panasonic and Samsung, to take top honours...

With all due respect and no offence intended, I think you're wrong on this one mate. :)

The original T3 article has the same title as above and N4G guidelines state that we should always use the original title where possible.

As regards to you saying it's just about a player winning an award the end of the article says:

"The HD DVD FORMAT wins out because it is simply the genuine article. BluRay hardware and software is trailing behind HD DVD, which offers genuine user benefits."

That's why the title is what it is. I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with their conclusion, but on a technical point you can't deny the title is correct cos the article is specifically saying that the HD-DVD player AND format beats BluRay (in their opinion).

Hence, the reason I've approved this story.

They're taking the headline out of context to attract readers. It works, but it's dishonest.

You've just summed up how Tabloid Journalism works! :p

If you're going to nitpick...

a) it's HD DVD not HD-DVD

b) it's Blu-ray not BluRay

it is wrong, but when everyone reads it then they'll see the context...though it's funny when an article has a flamebait title it's alright...hey ho

It does beat blue ray in the best home cenima and I think that is what the article really actually is trying to say.

Considering theres alot of good movies on Blu Ray than HD DVD this is just another lie saying that HD DVD is better when in reality it isnt and the proof is in the sale that Blu Ray saled HD DVD 3 to 1. and of course if you count the PS3 and see this article is wrong when you know that the XBox 360 fans would have to buy the HD DVD to actually make the HD DVD win which in this case its not.

Wtf are you babbling about I have trouble reading all your post.
Reading your post is like trying to solve a Rubik's cube, blindfolded with both my hands cut off.

Cool they won award. Now try making some money so your format doesnt fail within a year.
