all 360 fanboys are as ignorant and unintelligent as you.

Even though I have a PS3, I will not buy any Blu-Rays from a company who has Michael Dunn in charge. Too bad, I would of really enjoyed those movies.

It never ceases to amaze me how you always appear in news that you know you not going to agree with or like just to influence it with your negative comments.

This really enforces my belief that dual-format players will eventually reign supreme in this 'war' similar to the DVD-R/DVD+R compromise. The paramount announcement is huge. This actually gives HD-DVD more exclusive content:

HD-DVD Exclusive content: ~14,800 catalogue titles

Blu-Ray Exclusive content: ~11,700 catalogue titles

well at least we'll be seeing more titles than paramount and universal can push out from now til the end of 08. transformers and shrek 3, i would love to see them in bluray but if you compare the lineup of bluray movies coming out and hd dvds coming out, paramount's switch doesnt mean jack to anybody

heroman7113960d ago

exactly what ive been saying ! we got simpsons movie, alien vs predator1 and 2, super bad, spidey 3, hot rod , etc etc.

I don't see how this should even be in the 360 section, since it's strictly BR related..

Oh wait.. That's right for maximum flamage!

File this under: WGAS (along with the Universal deal)

With supports from other companies like these I don't think losing paramount to HD-DVD will hurt SONY too much for now at least.

Sounds like damage control to me. Why now...why re-proclaim what has been said from the beginning?

Fox seen blu ray as the winning format and for waiting for the finalize blu ray codes. They felt the didn't have to release anything becuase Blu Ray had a big lead but looks like Paramount opened a can of worms.
