Here's what he said after he settled down.
i saw 300 in blu ray........it rocks harder @systematrix....lmao.......ev en if that is sarcasm....its funny as hell
If you could tell the difference between HD-DVD and Blu-Ray output with your naked eye then you need to donate your eyes to science. The world needs to benefit from your superpowers.
hahahaha but I guess im seeing transformers on dvd because im not buying an HD DVD player. I seen the quality of them and theres no difference so why should I get it? Cant wait to see the garbage hd dvd sales.
Mr. Bay does have a good point. IF the players drop to 199, Maybe I would go out and buy 1.... OMG I almost converted to HD-DVD....The blu-ray association better drop prices like its cool if they plan to survive or drop bigger titles PRONTO. Lord of the rings would sound good right about now. But LOTR trilogy will launch on both formats by the end of the year. Blue ray won the "300" battle... soo hmmm.
Looks like he got a cut of the $150M. Money can change any opinion.
Fed-Ex'd to him overnight no doubt (by Paramount or the HD-DVD group). Does he realize how silly he looks now?
Paramount is being ignorant, oh well, it's not like we haven't seen that before(from other corporations). I'm not trying to be biased, but as a Blu-ray owner(PS3), and having watched HD DVD at my friend's house on his 360 attachment(I refuse to by this attempt at rectifying my inferior 360), there is no difference, so why support a obviously behind ,and quickly farther behind, format(payoff anyone). I think Paramount was fine when they supported both because they weren't restricting who was capable of watching their titles. And that they did so by going against the format which sold 3:1 over the other, is stupid, and I hate them for that. Now I can't watch Transformers in true high def, and all they're doing is hurting themselves. Michael Bay should have taken a stronger stance against this, Paramount is despicable. Edit:By the way, by 360 being inferior, I mean the fact they chucked a HD player out there just to compete with Sony, because Blu-ray victory means a possible shorter life-span for the 360(Msoft don't want that)
I know how you feel. I hate Disney, for the same reason. I won't get to watch Pirates 3 in HD. All of the exclusive studios are losnig money, so I have to get some movies on DVD, or just skip them all together. Just to send a message, though, I'm not getting any bluray excluive studio's movies, because by being exclusive, they're basicly saything they don't want my business. Same for the HD DCD studios for anyone who owns bluray. Go neutral and make Sony slash their pirces to keep up. A price war benefits us, while everyone being neutral benefits the studios.
looks like he's had a change of heart, (show me the money) welcome to the HD DVD camp Micheal, ha ha but seriously now I'm not saying HD DVD should be the winner, I know many of you think I hate bluray but really thats not the case the only thing I hate is being forced by sony and the studio's to choose bluray, in other words I think all the movie studios should have supported both formats and let the consumers choose which format they wanted to support. Like the kid above, he rants at Paramount for going over to HD DVD, but what about ranting at the studio's who chose bluray exclusively over HD DVD? Truth is ALL of these companies f-k us over for greed, the studio execs should have gotten together with the 2 HD format rival groups and said hey we will put our movies on both formats, in 6-12 months whichever one has better sales we will support exclusively, unless you two format rivals want to make a deal and go with one format and share the profits, otherwise someone will be the loser in next yr because we will only support the format consumers show the most interest in with their wallets. But NO nobodys looking out for the consumer in all of this format war= GREED= why take the safe bet and share humungous profits when you can have it all to yourself. f-k 'em all= JOY ha ha hold on now sony kids report this news for NOT being industry news although HD format news has been labeled that way in the past and of course the most vague and opinionated reason for reporting any news is because you think its "lame" but the other post from Micheal Bay was definitely news worthy right? damm the n4g bias is thick these days.
For the first time I agree with you JokesOnYou... I wish they just let costumer choose a format, but all the industry do is thinking on benefit Sony or Toshiba... The odd think is even with this lack of consideration for the costumers, we still want HD formats to become mass-market because of the quality... The movie industry really hook us up this time.
People... here is an example of how business work... Today sony fanboys had their victory dance over Michael Bay saying bla bla over HD DVD... and what do we have here?.... mmmm... no more victory dance? no more? Expect Michael Bay to endorse HD DVD from now on. And just expect other studios to support HD DVD now. Let's hope Microsoft or HD DVD camp have more money to pay! yeeeeeeeehahhhhhh! I like how you use the word "GREED" when you are talking about entertainment... didnt you know that films and game makers are all about making money? Or do you think it's done for charity? We are not talking about feeding the hunger or other non-profit organizations.. Anyways... I don't support exclusive content for HD DVD... but since Sony is already playing this game.. and they have big blu-ray exclusive supporters.. I say it's only fair. bring it on... I wish movies were made in both formats... and let the consumer desides base on the value in terms of features and price between the both... ofcourse blu-ray is more expensive and having exclusive content is the only way that blu-ray can apeal to anyone... So, I am glad HD DVD camp is bringing the format war to some fairness... I am not worring about one format not winning... at the end... the consumer will pick the best... I honesly think that this whole battle is great since we probably will endup with a $150 blu-ray and HD DVD player within a year... which means.. by the time the mass market is ready to pick a format... the price of the players will be the lowest they could get... something not possible without the format war. I don't mind a blu-ray for $150.00 ...
In the morning he's angry at Paramount. Now he loves HD-DVD and everyone. Geez. LOL.
money has that effect on people.
I don't blame him. He's a good director, he's just in the middle of everything. PS: He better make TF2. First one is GREAT.
I haven't seen Transformers yet but IMO, all his previous movies, except for gone in 60 seconds, are garbage.
I thought I wouldn't have to give details about it, but apparently yes.. Obviously I'm not talking about OSCAR caliber director or anything, but Michael Bay has great and entertaining movies.. You don't need to make a breathtaking drama with only oscar winners or nominee actors to judge a director's work.. I don't think movies like: Armageddon Pearl Harbor Bad boys 1 and 2 (really fun movies can't deny it) The island The Rock are considered garbage.. They are great summer movies which a lot of people enjoy.
MB is not a good director. all of the aforementioned moveies stink. just my opinion, if you guys like these movies;ok by me- everyone has likes and dislikes.
You brought up Pearl Harbor...In his defense?
Not garbage, but high-budget movies--meaning you'd have to suck pretty bad to really fail. The Rock was quite entertaining, though much thanks to the score (Zimmer).
You are absolutely right. The consumer should have the right to decide. Both of these companies have been doing shady business deals behind the scenes. I really do think that with Michael Bays comment that the cheap HDDVD players from WalMart are on the way though($200). Perhaps he knows something we don't. HDDVD is definately in a way better position on pricepoint than Bluray. If these cheaper players are on the way things are going to get ugly.
Those rumored $200 HD-DVD players that will probably come out this Christmas or next year will only output 1080i and some of the cheaper 1080p players got pretty bad reviews from most sites. http://www.amazon.com/Toshi... I'm also surprised by the fact that Toshiba has spent $150 million for Paramounts exclusivity. They will lose even more money if they drop the player to $200. This will hurt them in the long run. They were already losing $200 per every first gen HD DVD player. http://www.extremetech.com/...
i don't thind sony putting BR in the ps3 was shady or anything. i was happy to get it. i think it's a good value. if microsoft ever puts hddvd in the 360, i'll buy one immediately. but until they do....no sale.
SONY has big blu-ray exclusive supporters. SO do you think this is going to hurt SONY?
well it sure doesnt help...
Doesnt also have big exclusive movie studio support? It hurts both formats. It hurts consumers. It hurts the adoption rate of high definition movies on disc. Makes me hesitate to buy any high def movie till a proven format standards has been established.
Microsoft pay lotta money to paramount and dreamworks so they willing to support HD DVD and dump Blu-Ray. Consumers/fanboys will choose the best. I go for Bul-Ray. I like Playstation 3 better than Xbox 360 that's why I didn't even look at Xbox 360 when I went to BESTBUY/Compusa. Just because Playstation 3 is like $499.99 and $599.99 doesn't mean it sucks and will lose. PS3 is expensive because Sony takes their times with their consoles and games just all for the fans out there. Do you know why Microsoft suck big times? Microsoft be rushing out the products just to get more fast money. That's why xbox is over heating and be freezing during game plays. Microsoft don't care about consumers/fans out there they just want to get their money.
When did this thread become PS3 vs. Xbox??? Don't be a flaming fanboy loser. It's about MOVIES, not games.
microsoft comment wasn't necessary, but comments about ps3 can be made in relation to blu-ray since it's in the box.
longcry you are the reason there is an ignore option... click.
no matter what happends im still on the blue side :)
why are people saying that Microsoft payed Paramount, I thought HD-DVD was developed by Toshiba and NEC?
but Microsoft, who is one of only a few board members on the HD-DVD Association, provides a significant amount of the Association's funding. They helped spearhead the initial campaign of selling HD-DVD Players at a $200 loss, and also provided the funding for the Paramount/Dreamworks Animation exclusivity deal. They also integrated HD-DVD functionality directly into Windows Vista, and did no such thing for Blu-ray. Understandable considering their allegiance.
is there any information that says it was Microsoft who payed the $150 million in cash? I looked at the HD DVD promotion group site, it seems they are only 1 of 60 or so companies who are members.
That's what can happen after a number of drinks before reps start whispering poison in your ear and then send you on your merry way to do their dirty work. I'm just glad he came back around and didn't let a couple whiney a$$bags convince him into jeopardizing what could be a great franchise in Transformers.
god, i hope it doesn't become a series. 1 transformer "movie" was waaaaaay more than enough.
yeah I agree with you bloody diarrhea, they just rush to beat sony, but its not going to work, by 2008 the ps3 would be on the lead
i dont know what you are talking about i never said such a thing... umm, if anything im pro nintendo/microsoft... but yeah...
Looks like it's the only hi-def experience I'll get from the movie ever again... no way I'm going to waste my money on a dying format.
It seems like it, now that Michael Bay has just changed his mind and professed his true love for HD-DVD. LOL.
soon or later Playstation 3 Blu-Ray will be the lead. Microsoft pay Paramout and Dreamworks lotta money behind the scene because Microsoft want more people to buy xbox 360. Xbox 360 HD DVD is not selling good. Nintendo Wii is non DVD playable and still catch up to Xbox 360 and now Wii will pass over Xbox 360 10.4 million sold consoles.
Why is it MS? If anyone paid anyone it was Toshiba since they have the most to lose in this venture. If MS did anything recently it was with Disney since HD Disney movies are coming to XboxLive. Will that open the door to HD DVD Disney movies? Who knows?? I say it's 50/50 right now because Disney is waiting on Apple to make it's move...and then they will follow just like they did on iTunes movie DL's.
whan whan whan, micro paid off Paramount, link please? but even if they did so what? Do you think if Sony saw an opportunity to buy out Universal for a fee as small as 150 mil, really thats petty cash in the movie business, big movies make that in one weekend and I'm sure its more likely Toshiba etc who were more than happy to write that check but you think sony wouldmt do it? come on there's got to be more in it for Paramount= they must at least think they are going to make alot of money from this deal from the other end, in fact here's what the Chief Technology Officer for Paramount Pictures (CTO) said: Bell: Paramount has been getting experience with publishing titles in both formats for the last year. We've had a hands-on ability to see how these formats work in practice. And after some hands-on analysis, we decided that HD DVD was the format we wanted to support. PCW: Why was that? Bell: For one thing, the lower prices of the players: It's good for consumers, it's good for our customer base. For another thing, HD DVD came out of the DVD Forum. The DVD Forum is very experienced at developing and managing specs. [HD DVD] was launched in a very stable way, with stable specifications, and they had specified a reference player model, so all players had to be compatible with the HDi interactivity layer, and all players had to be capable of the interactivity. So when we publish titles in the future that have interactivity, we can be assured that every HD DVD player will be able to handle this content. http://www.pcworld.com/arti... So it sounds to me after working with both Paramount believes consumers will be better off with HD DVD and they are betting they can make more money in the future of that format. ha ha but of course sony kids think they know better.= JOY ha ha ITR you beat to the punch, easy target though so I cant really give you too much credit.
Wow, I actually predicted this earlier this morning...kinda funny reading about his retracted statements now.
HD DVD has just won. Go play your soon to be BetaMax Blu-Ray movies and cry knowing they will soon be going away for good. All of you idiots, who wasted thousands of dollars buying 100 Blu-Ray movies each in attempt to carry the format with the PS3 crowd alone, have failed. Gamers will not choose the winner. Average Joe will. Average Joe buys the most affordable player with a nice selection of movies. Unfortunately for Blu-Ray, HD DVD is the best priced player, has the better priced movies, and now, thanks to Paramount, has more studio support, and better movies. Blu-Ray is absolute toast. Hang it up Sony fanboys. I have decided to sell my PS3 before it isn't worth a wet food stamp. This deal has killed PS3 and Blu-Ray. Shame on Sony for Trojan Horsing Blu-Ray into people's homes in an attempt to control the next movie format. They deserve to lose with unfair, and monopolistic tactics like they have done. They bought off Disney and Fox, so you can't complain that Paramount was bought off by HD DVD. This will kill Blu-Ray. The number 1 DVD player sold on Amazon is now the HD-A2 player in light of this news. The next HD player is another HD DVD player at #10, then the first bottom of the barrel Blu-Ray player comes in at #18. http://www.amazon.com/gp/be... Sorry guys... This was a killer blow, like it or not. I love the bull$hit laden, bias out the ying-yang posts over at Blu-Ray.com... It's obvious that they can sense danger, and know that they are in serious doo-doo. Quit wasting you money on Blu-Ray discs. Want to boycott Paramount? Fine - be stupid. It will not save Blu-Ray, and eventually, as much as it will hurt, you will buy an HD DVD player. Look for this to get ugly real soon. This move may sway studios that are already HD DVD slanted to go exclusive, cough cough - Warner Brothers - Cough. It may even take a few $$$$, but I bet M$ will be willing to lend a hand - after all, the enemy of Sony is a friend of M$. This war will be bad for Sony this Christmas. Come January, HD DVD may be the player sales leader, even beating the PS3s in your homes. But, even if it isn't leading by then, I guarantee that they will have closed the gap big time.
Bluray sales 3 to 1 over HD-DVD....The paramount deal is only for 18 months. Sony will prevail because they are Sony. They dominated in the video game markets for the last 3 generations...they will this gen also. The bluray drive is in every PS3, not a add-on like in the xbox 360. We can talk about the xbox 360, because it can get a HD-DVD player with the addon. The low end toshiba HD-DVD players are only 1080i! The rumored sub $200 HD=DVD players do not exist yet. Bluray is also rumored to have sub $200 bluray players...but they will all be 1080p with HDMI 1.3. You forget Sony, Disney and Fox are more powerful than paramount\dreaworks\universal.
Someone's been drinking a little too much coffee there.
No one is force to buy blu ray. I support it, but you ain't forced too just cause you have a Ps3. Ps3 owners will get alot more content in their games cause of blu ray, therefor saving space in your harddrive by not downloading stuff that didn't if the Ps3 used dvd9. So that is 1 reason sony choose blu ray. Now its just a bonus you have a blu ray player. But your not forced to choose that. You can go buy an hd-dvd player anytime you want. with that said, I support Blu Ray...
To the 2 posters above - you guys support Blu-Ray because you have a PS3, and for no other reason. That bitter taste in your mouth is the taste of defeat. We'll see what happens over the next 2 crucial Christmas seasons with this war. Don't you guys feel a little abandoned by Sony? I mean, they have the ability to make some great games - I have enjoyed several, but so far, the PS3 is not a game console - Sony has been pushing Blu-Ray movies and not PS3 games. The PS3 was never intended to satisy gamers. That's why Sony tried to made Blu-Ray in the first place - to collect royalties on a "would-be" future movie format. The PS3 was a catapult cleverly shoved down the world's throat. This catapult put them in the next-gen lead. The truth is, if you guys didn't have Blu-Ray playback included in the PS3, and it was only standalone, Blu-Ray would be getting crushed. This is why I make my judgement saying that Blu-Ray is not a choice. If you really supported Blu-Ray, and not Sony, you would buy a Blu-Ray standalone player if the PS3 did not have Blu-Ray playback. I can't say for certain if you would or wouldn't, but my guess would be no. Hell, Sony could have sold more PS3s if they didn't include Blu-Ray playback because the system would be more affordable and cost competitive. They could also have focused on getting some "good" games out if they weren't so focused on the movie aspect of Blu-Ray. The games on the PS3 are lame compared to the 360. Yes, the 360 has some reliability issues, but the point is, Microsoft does remedy the problem with no questions. I will buy a console with the best games, and customer service in the event something happens. I will not buy a reliable system with a garbage selection of games. As a gamer, I want great games, not only reliability. Games come first, not movies. Sony has left you guys hanging, and they are using the Sony fanboy fanatics as little sheep as we speak. like I said, if you have 50 or more Blu-Ray movies, you are a sheep in Sony's flock. They were definitely looking to exploit your die-hard Sony-or-nothing mentality with Blu-Ray. It ends up costing you thousands of dollars in the long run, and Sony's Blu-Ray attempt will ultimately fail. They can still make Blu-Ray games even if Blu-Ray fails on the movie side, so who cares??? Get off the Kool-Aid. Just take a step back from your Sony bias and seriously analyze the situation. If you truly think Sony will win, I really want to know your logic. Have fun with you Disney cartoons on Blu-Ray. Your average gamer that buys a PS3 is probably 20-30 years old and has long outgrown animated movies, so they won't buy them. The only ones that will have children, and I understand that. But, if you are a 25 year old single male w/ no children and you buy "Cars", I'm sorry, but you're gay. To be honest with you, I have a PS3 and I fell a little sad right now, but I am glad that this happened. The price point was going to kill Blu-Ray eventually anyway. this deal will expedite the process of choosing a winner, and after this Christmas, other studios may jump ship to HD DVD as well. A winner needs to be chosen, right? So, what do you care if it is HD DVD? Sony started this war - not Toshiba. With all that said, I may be nuying one more Blu-Ray movie and then I'm done - Badder Santa! Excellent and funny movie. I know it's a Disney/Buena Vista flick, but it is not a damn kids movie by any means. If you want a winner, support the one with the best price for the quickest results. To deny that advantage is to be biased.
Every single person who bought a PS3 has already paid for Blu-Ray whether they wanted to or not. They paid for Blu-Ray hardware. How well do you think Blu-Ray movies would be selling if Sony hadnt trojan horsed it into the PS3? No your right Sony isnt forcing anybody to buy Blu-Ray movies. But they bet the farm that by force feeding it to Playstation brand loyal consumers that they have made the choice for you. Of course its easy for your to support it. You already paid for it. I wonder how all the 3rd party software developers really feel about Blu-Ray. Since the PS3 hs the lowest game attachment rate of all 3 next gen consoles. The 360 has the highest. Why? Because 360 owners know that the 360 was meant to play videogames. PS3 owners are just confused. No good games, so they either buy movies or cure cancer. I will take the option of choosing if and when to buy a high definition movie and what format vs having someone try to force my hand and make the decision for me. Unlike PS3 fanboys I can form my own opinion and think outside of Sony's marketing...
Microsoft knew that their Xbox 360 is not selling good so pay Paramount/Dreamworks huge amount of money just to get theirs movies in HD DVD and say that there will be not TRANSFORMERS for Blu-Ray. In the US Blu-Ray outpaces HD DVD 2:1. Xbox 360 been out for years now and it's not selling good anymore. Xbox 360 is overheating and keep dying on xbots fanboys out there. " It's time for BioShock but my xbox 360 decide to die at the wrong moment/times." LOL.............!! u see now!! 72% of Playstation 3 owners have blu-Ray movies in their homes. Microsoft just rush their prodocts out for fast money. Rushing products out is not going to cut it. Windows vista is out and now they're planning to release Windows 7 in early years. Too soon....... I choose Blu-Ray over HD DVD that's why I don't even look at Xbox or have even touch one before. "I'm planing to buy another Playstation 3." Playstation 3 Blu-Ray movies will have more contents. 50 gbs vs 30 gbs. In the long run Sony Playstation 3 Blu-Ray will lead the top. Microsoft pay Paramount/Dreamworks huge amount of money and told them not to make movies for Blu-Ray. LOLOL.......!!!..........!!!
Unfortunatly everyone has a price and 150 Million dollars is Paramounts price. I did enjoy transformers, but I guess I'lll have to wait 18 months to buy it.... Thats if Im still interested.
DragonZ28.. with the amount of passion you have for HDDVD one would think you gave birth to it, lol. "Like a proud parent you are" (Yoda voice) Allot of the new movies well also be released on regular dvd so no matter what.. both XB360 and the PS3 can watch them. (once you buy a remote for the XB360)
You can always get the movies on DVD and wait out the format war. Thats my plan. May not be as nice as a high def movie, but it will still look great. You may think this is funny but I use my wireless controller on my 360 to play DVD movies right now. I lended my Progressive Scan DVD player to my brother when he got his new Plasma HDTV and never saw it again :(
However, I did not give birth to HD DVD, lol. People always have the option of standard DVD for a long time coming. Why do I want Sony to lose? I'll tell you plain and simple. They are using monopolistic tactics and "spun" information to misinform the gullible to try and push their Blu-Ray agenda onto the consumer. They bought off Fox, and Disney. So, nobody has the right to be mad at Toshiba for buying off Paramount, but for some reason, Blu-Ray fanboys now hate Paramount. As far as the format war goes, Sony started it. HD DVD was out first, and then Blu-Ray challenged it. This means they started the HD war by coming in and bribing studios for support, like it or not, they started it. Toshiba is not making HD DVD so it can sell "Toshiba studios" movies. There is no movie studio owned by Toshiba. Sony, on the other hand, is trying to monopolize the next gen format by using itself as an exclusive studio for its format, thereby purposefully limiting consumer choice to see thier movies on any other format. It's just bad business, and Sony has made this bad for the consumer. If they didn't make their own format and bribe studios in the first place, we wouldn't have this war. If all we had was HD DVD, then everyone would be happy, and sony could still make money by putting their movies on that format. Instead, they chose to be greedy bastards, and milk consumers for all they could by pushing this format struggle. The problem is, they expected the PS3 to have sold 20 million units by now and it hasn't happened. Sony is greedy, and they have used and continue to use unfair business practice that violates ethics laws. Sony is the bad guy in this war, not Toshiba. I don't support the bad guy who started the fight, and that's why I don't support Sony. With that said, stick a fork in Blu-Ray. It's toast. If you think I am biased, I'll tell you that I have both formats. I have a PS3. I think it's crap. It has no good games. Sony has not used it as a game console. They have marketed it as a Blu-Ray movie player and completely forgotten about their hardcore gamer base. However, their hardcore gamer base is, for the most part, too stupid to see that they are forgotten pawns that are being used. All PS3 owners so far have been robbed. The PS3 games suck. A game console for $600 with no good games is pretty damn stupid and absurd. I know that some of you will argue the term "good". Truth is, Resistance isn't bad. But, it sucks compared to Gears of War - if we're arguing content being a deciding factor for a purchase, most gamers will get a 360 in this case because more prefer Gears of War To Resistance. It's all relative. Which system has the better games? The Xbox360 does. Sony expected to have sold many more PS3 consoles than it actually has. They over-estimated their loyal crowd, to be frank. They wanted the initial Blu-Ray/PS3 surge to be 10X higher than it actually was and now, they are in troubled times. Let's face it. Sony wanted the PS3 to be rare for 6-8 months after launch - just like the Xbox360 and Wii. But, they were literally sitting on store shelves within 1 week of the launch. Sony got hammered by the price tag. Even their loyalists couldn't afford it, for the most part. Sony is the bad greedy bad guy - not Toshiba.
Do you know what happen to Peter Moore the vice president for Microsoft Xbox 360/game division? $1 billions for warranty for 1-3 years free shipping and repairing well that's more than the huge amount of money Microsoft pay Paramount/Dreamworks for not making movies for Blu-Ray. NEWS = saying he have family personal problems/moving = well $1 billions is just like pocket change for Microsoft but it's not good for the stock market MS. Peter Moore been take down from MS game division and been move to somewhere else LOL!!!!! Microsoft Xbox 360 to make profit in the next 2 to 3 years. Xbox 360 have more games because it's been out for years now that's why. Sony Playstation 3 been out for 9 months now and good/great games still coming out. next couple years Sony Playstation 3 will totally outpace Microsoft xbox 360. Microsoft Xbox 360 is not doing so well in Japan. Big lose there!! Nintendo Wii totally over pace Xbox 360 10.4 million sold consoles!!! I support Sony Playstation 3 Blu-Ray that's why i'm going to by another PS3. Xbox 360 don't have good games that's why I don't have one. Do you understand??
"TROLL" 360 has no good games? Get you fanboy head out of your a$$. As far as the Wii, it isn't in the same league as the PS3 or the 360, so who cares. Most people have a Wii and 1 of the other 2 consoles. The Wii is a supplementa game system that offers something different - I have no beef with the Wii. Let them sell 300 million units - I'll be glad for Nintendo.
!!!--->This is to dragonZ28.<---!!! 100 gbs single dics underworking/patents as speaking. It's so fun how you type this up: "Sony expected to have sold many more PS3 consoles than it actually has. They over-estimated their loyal crowd, to be frank. They wanted the initial Blu-Ray/PS3 surge to be 10X higher than it actually was and now, they are in troubled times. Let's face it.

Sony got hammered by the price tag. Even their loyalists couldn't afford it, for the most part." Xbox-xbots fanboys are getting so tire of old xbox games and consoles, xbots camp out of stores for months/weeks/days/and hours just to wait for Sony Playstation 3 to come out. "Everyone so curious about the Blu-Ray and Sony PS3" Tell you what!! Xbots rape and robb each other just to get a PS3 on launch day. Mayors have to call the police departments to settle down the crowds in many states. Xbots fight hella bad just for PS3 LOLOL- "you have to be there to see for yourself" I read about a old man try to run as fast as he could just to get in front of the line and he ran into a pole-hit this nuts so hard he was taken to the hospital. Xbox 360 don't have any good games. Xbox 360 have aite games. Playstation 3 have good/great games coming down the line of future. Compare PS3 vs Xbox 360 = Xbox have poor quality that's all i got to say so. Xbox 360 been out for years now that's why it have more games. If Xbox 360 does have good games like you (dragonZ28 say so then I'd gotten a Xbox already) Playstation 3 is so rare and famous that's why BUYERS are willingly to buy it for $1000 or more in Ebay.com Most of the hardcore and real gamers don't/doesn't really care about Xbox 360 because they say Microsoft rushes their products out too fast so less people went out to buy Xbox 360 but Playstation 3 mostly real/hardcore gamers be camping out so early for it..........LOLOL!!! Everything I've say base on real news. You can't beat that can you. You tell me dragonz28!!!!!!!...........!!! plus PSN is for free. Xbox charge you for fees/xbox live and still you have to pay for your own cable fees. plus xbox 360 have crappy controller arrow pads. Every hardcore/real gamers say about that.

keep drinking whatever sonys been giving you and this whole gaming generation its going to be a Long Long Cry for you.= JOY
wow...people sure are getting pissy...I mean its just an 18 month exclusivity thing...The war is heating up....
LOL. Blame it on M$ because they paid for: 1. Poor PS3 sales 2. Poor ports of 360 games on PS3 3. Exclusive Titles on 360 4. MOre content on LIVE 5. More hardware choices for consumers 6. HD players selling more than BD stand alone 7. MOvie Studios jumping to support HD 8. Games Developers prefer giving more time to 360 titles 9. Games delaying on PS3 not only multiplatform but their own exclusives 10. Demos not coming to PS3 even if they are multiplatform 11. Katrina hurricane 12. Global warming. Did i miss out anything? EDIT: @00 LOL yes i missed that one thnx
Your all so pathetic arguing for and against a DISC FORMAT!!!!!!! Who cares which format wins as yourll be buying the one whichever wins so cut the bs sayin ill never by sony this / microsoft that. If blu-ray wins all you blu-ray haters will buy it and suddenly change vice-versa if hd-dvd wins. So your all just a bunch of hypocrites, Wait dont tell me your just gonna stop watching movies if the opposite side wins haha losers :)
I void flowers, not money. Having already invested in the format I find most proper; of course do I hope for it to succeed more than the other.
Damn now I cant enjoy Transformers on HD...thanks Paramount. You'll come back Paramount, you'll come back
