Some of you may have seen a story today concerning a Disney film being released on HD DVD. This is categorically false and a typo from the offending website IMDB. Here is what the head of Disney said just two weeks ago:
a little less sweeter for the HD-DVD camp.
so they couldnt have changed there minds before yesterday then ?
i dont buy hd-dvd or blu(what the hell is that)ray movies as i think both will be dead before they establish a winner .
hd (high def) to hd (hard drive) ftw !
So basically they are sourcing the old May 11th interview as proof.
An offical statement from Disney would give more proof then anything else.
If IMDb did make a typo I have a feeling they would issue a retraction.
Currently Apple has more influence in Disney then the CEO.
If Apple stay's BD then Disney will follow suit. Currently though Apple's loyality to BD is in question. No BD drive on a Mac and nothing thus far planned. Rumor has it, a hybrid drive is in the works as support for both formats can be seen in Apple's next OS Leopard, which will release in Oct.
Apple/Disney/Google are sort of like peas in a pod..they all tend to follow each other.
Apple sales Pixar to Disney.
Disney throws it's weight behind itunes with some of the first music and movies to DL.
Google's CEO jumps on Apple's board of directors....then Gmail/GMaps and other apps appear on Apple's new iPhone as std software.
Now I'm going to bed.
READ THE 4TH PARAGRAPH.
Two weeks old article
Ha! h-dvd fanboys can try to get a life now.
By making a comment like that, well, you may wanna look in the mirror.
SHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU PARTY NAKED!.
Why am I not surprised?
I think the article is pointing out the obvious fallacy that Disney has gone HD DVD and decided to announce it by having a listing in an news service like Studio Briefing. I'll eat my hat if SPG isn't correct.
Can you youtube yourself eating the hat and post it here as news?
What better movie to enter the market with, huh??? Haha...you all know it was a typo. I love IMDB, but nobody's perfect.
The movie sucked.
Absolutely...if that IMDB/Studio Briefing isn't a mistake I'll gladly eat my hat on youtube. (Now where is that Pizza Hat of mine?)
lol I wouldn't buy that flick on regular dvd.
Hell, i wouldn't even download that movie for free.
perhaps sony has something to do with it. maybe they made disney mad. linky: http://www.imdb.com/news/sb...
So there are HD-DVD and Blu-Ray fanboys now? god, what the hell is going on ?
a "RUMOR" is debunked with a 2 WEEK Article prior?
scratching my head... where is the official announcment, like we usually get from companies about rumors?
Zone, anything tied to the next-gen consoles will have hardcore fanboys. Somebody has got to feel superior, that their console of choice is winning in whatever fashion and all that is tied to it.
