The much awaited trilogy of Lord of the Rings to hit Blu-Ray has finally come as the movies are now available on Blu-Ray.
I'm getting it on Blu Ray
same... I prefer the lesser compressed version by landslide.
I hope you two realize the movies on PSN ARE the uncompressed HD versions minus the features right? I just wish Sony had an option to let you buy all three in a bundle.
Hell no. They're the compressed version alright. For example I bought the PSN version of 10000 BC before I bought it on Bluray. After watching it on Bluray I'd say the difference is clear. The PSN version is inferior.
You didn't see that PSN offers BOTH THE HD AND SD versions. You're saying that Sony released the SD and caled it HD as well? Please.
er no. SD has nothing to do with compression and neither does HD... SD means that the movie is a 4:3 ratio picture with a 720×576 max resolution. an ED format covers between SD and HD which begins at a 16:9 aspect ratio with a min resolution of 1280x720. 4k is next resolution break and then superhivision is top format so no... the difference is in the level of compression used on the video stream. Blu-ray discs are compressed but internet video streams are compressed even more... see the difference between a 40gig compressed version of a movie (1080p at 24fps = 9 gigs per minute uncompressed) vs the 5-7 gigs (if your lucky) on a psn downloaded hd movie (and that doesn't count the 7.1 uncompressed audio)
