Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment announced today more innovations in the Blu-ray format with the Studio's first ever Platinum Blu-ray release, the Studio's first BD-Live title, and full motion picture-in-picture Blu-ray bonus features.
Pirates Of The Caribbean 3 FTW
Please do not piss on the xbox...use the Loo lol anyways Good for Blu-ray I guess
yeah microsoft warranty only extends to rrod.. pissing on gpu will keep the xbox from over heating (watre-cooling) but it will short circuit the chips and anyways piss makes it smell bad.. not recommended..
People are calling this a war. let see 50 companies vs 2 1/2
Its ok, Disney is already bringing their line up of films to Xbox live so I am cool with Blue ray now.
Shhhh don't tell anyone. Won't be announced till Sony unveils their plans for movies, music and more.
Blu ray you mean??
let's hope you have got a big hard disk (i.e. elite) since after four/five movies you pretty much got little else for games plus the movie is stuck on your xbox with no where else to go.. plus you will miss out on bonus features plus the quality will no where be near as good as blu-ray (sound and video).. plus you can't sell the movie on if you don't want it any more.. plus if your xbox breaks you might be screwed (or at least have to download everything again).. plus you sound way too much like sour grapes..
It’s funny they are announcing products for 2008, overshadowing their 2007 holiday releases. The Blu-ray group will do everything they can to try and convince the public to buy Blu-ray. Well… almost everything. They have yet to finish the Blu-ray spec, nor are they talking about the soon to be obsolete Blu-ray hardware. http://say-no-to-blu-ray.co...
they did finsih the blu ray sepc, hence the reason disney is releasing a timeless classic animated feature with Java live support. and abotu "soon to be obsolete hardware" hahah did you actually say then when talking about technology? hahahah every peice of technologyu is obsolete the second it is released. there are over a million iphones out there that are obsolete. your 360 is obsolete. everythign is obsolete when talking about hardware
Its dead. Deal with it!
Don't try to convince him guys he's the 1 man army for HD DVD. He will be supporting it even after Toshiba and Universal abandon it. He'll be buying HD DVD's out of the bargain bins. HD DVD is Extinct! HD DVD = HD DUD its a dud.
I hope they haven't finalized the spec yet. The 300 Blu-ray disc is complete garbage and has some major bugs in it. I noticed Pirates of the Caribbean 3 wasn't listed.. did I miss that?? Maybe thats a holiday 07 release?? I will be to busy playing games to watch freakin movies anyways.. HD Movie downloads FTW!
cdzie1, you do realize that you are the laughing stock when it come to format wars. You know that right?
Does Sony have any kind of licensing with blu-ray, as in if blu-ray does win out, microsoft in the future would need to pay sony to use blu-rau players in the xbox 360? Or is it open technology that microsoft would have free access to?
yes , Sony is one of the founders of blu ray, so microsoft would have to pay sony to use blu ray.
Actually the VC-1 codec that Blu-ray uses was made by Microsoft.. So they actually have to pay MS to use it. Not sure of the details but I find that kind of ironic.
...i thought this was a gaming website
Hey toughname...off topic, but is that janssen and and belak in your avatar? You a leafs or devils fan?
Shouldn't you be playing it..........oh yeah you can't its in Texas getting fixed.
well, at least for Finding Nemo and Sleeping Beauty. Sleeping Beauty is one of my fiance's *FAVORITE Disney animated features, and i'd *KILL to see all that underwater beauty in HD in Finding Nemo. both of those are coming home with me on release day. period.
Is it hard to develop blu-ray movies as well? sheesh...I wanna watch all the Pixar movies on my PS3
We have to protest for this movie to come out this December at least!
What on earth does this have to do with gaming??? I wish this site would clean up it's act and post something relivant to gaming, and not this non-sense. N4G continues to excel at being below average on posting relivant articles.
completely agree agent - bubbles for you. Better watch though Agent - drtsouf will threaten you if you complain about his or any blu ray article - he is somewhat protective of the blatant, artificially increasing contributor score, articles. He is a little highly strung...........
How can they release sleeping beauty n not The lion king?!?
cdzie1 is going to have a nervous breakdown.
when will fanboys like cdize1 stop beating the dead horse that is HD-DVD and accept Blu-ray as the new format? sites like say-no-to-blu-ray.com are for haters by haters.
XBOTS, please don't panic. I know allot of you are quickly pulling out the digital cameras to put you HD-DVD xbox add-on on eBay, but before you do this, you should all hear this.....I TOLD YOU SO....AHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA
It's Toshiba vs. Sony, not Microsoft. There is also a BR player in every PS3, so it's kind of like a trojan horse really. Sony forced fed the format to consumers, thats why it's going to win, simple as that.
It would be nice for the consumers =) I feel kinda bad for those who bought a Hddvd player =/ They should get their money back..
SERIOUSLY!?! cuz look at the numbers. 60/40 split in favor of BR out of a TOTAL 5% movie sales stand alone players are in favor of HD DVD total HD movie playback are in favor of BR (thanks to ps3) cost of stand alones are in favor of HD DVD that means SH!T on seeing who is winning the format. the masses (those who REALLY matter, not HIFI guys or fanboy trolls) haven't even made a decision and most recall being bitten by sony due to failed media formats; the latest being UMD movies the war is far from over ladies. i am neutral and can see that. i do feel that due to the ps3 BR has the best chance to be a winner but i think this will end in a stalemate the same way dvd+r and dvd-r ended. since visual and audio is the same the masses are confused on which is better. price will be a huge difference as well and the cheaper players/burners/software also has the advantage and taking massive sales. i expect many studios that are exclusive to go multiformat since in business it is only smart let me end with WHY DO WE CONSTANTLY TIE MS TO HD DVD?!?! MS WANTS DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION, IT IS HOW THEY MAKE $, NOT VIA HD DVD!! damn trolls i tell you.... EDIT: to below i'm not getting into what each camp has as we'll be here all day. both camps offer advanatages from movies due to studios supported all the way to what the consumer gets in the long run. studio support isn't the only thing that says who wins. by that and by total BR playback devices, BR should be at 95/5 market share in HD movies regardless of price oh and i'm not cdzie1, i've lurked on this site for a long time and finally registered after seeing it go down the tubes thanks to fanboys. it started with the xbots when 360 was around, not it's the sony trolls. tons of misinformation is out there now that if someone were to stumble here and not get the brand loyalty that they would be persuaded towards one system or format. just trying to show the better picture to all. this site now reminds me of the sales people at best buy :P and most i posted was copied and pasted from what i've been adding on other sites ;)
Relax man...its friday! Drink a cerveza and enjoy the weekend!
you sound like cdzie1 with new account, not you 16.1
How can blu-ray loose? I don´t think the public would want to be without Disney movies. What does Hd-dvd has? The bourne movies, anything ells?
.....so funny to see people freak out over this crap...
Toshiba should have went with blu-ray since the beginning. Universal just switch already!!!
