The Almighty Format War

For a long time now people have been debating as to who really is the king of High Definition. Blu-ray players are a bit more expensive than HD DVD, but the numbers do not lie. Blu-ray has a significant worldwide lead on HD DVD. How is this possible if HD DVD is cheaper and is almost visually the same? Could it be Sony really did push Blu-ray into the market through the PS3 to force Blu-ray as the next media format? Or could it be simply people are catching up with the times and looking out into the future? In the mist of all this debate, did we forget DVD movies are still selling in the millions? Or do you believe that maybe, just maybe, HD DVD and Blu-ray can co-exist in the same world eventually. All these questions you can ask yourself as you vote on this months poll. The poll will be up for 2 weeks. The results will be sent to a few sites such as

I agree but I do believe Blu-ray is the better choice, due to the discs being far more durable then HD-DVD's.

Yes it's the reason why I hate Sony this round and will not support the PS3 even though I still support the PS2. Gamers were cheated with the PS3 because Blu-Ray was first before gaming to Sony (so f**k em)

You kidding? If Sony didn't have a Blu-ray drive then the games wouldn't be as impressive as we are seeing.

Blu-ray is needed in gaming, movies aside.

If they didn't have Blu-ray then i'd be more than happy if they put in a holographic drive or something similar but definetly not a DVD drive they are so last gen.

The Blu-ray player in the PS3 is about gaming more so than movies

I don't mind if Blu-ray doesn't make it in movies but it'll always be there for gaming and that is where it's needed.
