Out of 1819 votes 1452 (79%) of the VGOA.com visitors believe Blu-ray in the end will win the format war. The poll will be up for another week.
coming from a Sony biased website
I'm sick of this sh!t, every bloody day, i dont care who wins, as long as i can watch HD movies in the comfort of my living room, Blu-ray or HD DVD, yawn.
Although YOU might be sick of it there are a huge number of people fence sitting on a choice so that they don't choose the next 8Track or Betamax...HD is a big investment for almost anyone and getting a 'feel' for who is going to win out might allow people to make a choice easier than listening to some knob at BB tell you what is 'cool' or what 'sux'.
So..tiresome, yes...needed, yes.
And Brian...please, instead of complaining why don't take the time to set up your own poll and let us know the results. Make sure you post your bias too...mkay?
Don't think the site is sony biased but these polls really arent representative of anything. Half of the ppl who vote are fan boys
this site only caters for Sony consoles
Brian, Blu-ray is doing better in the market whether you like it or not.
I also believe that Blu-ray may be the format the will win against HD DVD.... but come on! This poll is completely bull crap. I guarantee you that if they do a poll like this on xbox.com HD DVD would come on top. This site is not bias? Why they only have the follwing categories?
it's obvious that most people visiting that site already own a playstation... I mean look at the comments posted... they are all Sony fans.
What other results were you expecting?
Seriously... what's the point of this poll?
there is no such thing as an unbiased web-poll
So far the market speaks louder than any polls, and right now its saying BluRay discs are selling better than HDDVD.
We will all be better informed after x-mass when the score is presented for this year.
...Blu ray tatata
You guys should talk about this at AVSForums.com...we get like 3,4,5 of these articles a week....whats the big deal no matter which one wins we get HD movies, they are the same thing just different companies.
I understand PS3ers being interested in this bc it makes their purchase justified....i mean seriously if i spent 600$ buck and the format died id be pissed off but lets just limit some of these articles, i mean come a poll with like 1500 people hardly tells the tale.
i dont know why xbots defends hddvd when micrsoft can care less if it wins or not..blue ray is just better..
Blu-ray will win the format war as far as movie is concern. for now.. until digital distribution kicks in. Next Gen... disk are going to be so last gen.. similar to how fanboys consider game in 2 disk so last gens. Now... back to the point... this article comes from a Playstation only site.. full of people that love Sony playstation... the PS3 comes with a blu-ray player.. tell me genious... which one do you think they would pick?
themselves but poles are nice sometimes too. I mean its vgoa.com you can't tell what consoles its biased toward till you actually get there and you can only vote once so their could be an even number of people from both sides going to the site then voting.
Its too bad the bulk of consumers are not taking part in polls on DVD players most are tech lovin fanatics that par-take in such things the masses will choose on price and name reconition in the end and poll taking will be a non issue in the comming months.
VGOA.com is not Sony only...right now the writers and workers are all Sony based, they are waiting for more writers for other sections such as Wii and 360. This isn't a Sony only website.
Meanwhile 90% of the population has no idea what either HD DVD or Blu Ray is. This so called war is a crock. There is no war at all right now it is just a niche market (judging by sales data of current movies). Once one of the new technologies ever starts to compete with DVD then there maybe a war.
As for downloading movies I don't think that will be mainstream anytime soon. Not enough people will have the connection speed to do so, and really who wants to download a 15-50gig movie, unless they can start it in the morning before heading to work and have it ready to watch by the time they come home. I have to wonder how many people prefer to own the physical media.
