Studio execs visibly wriggled on stage as they were put the Yes/No only question in front of a packed audience of journalists at IFA 2007 in Berlin, Germany.
LoL I love "No comment"...2 simple words can easily create rumors~ gotta love English~
Stephen Foulser, Marketing VP Europe for Disney opted for a "No comment" statement, raising questions amongst industry commentators. Studio execs visibly wriggled on stage as they were put the Yes/No only question in front of a packed audience of journalists at IFA 2007 in Berlin, Germany. Lying through their teeth. At least the rep from Disney Europe had the dignity to plead " no comment".
The title and the descriptions of this news are contradictory.
Like The_Round_Peg said "The title and the descriptions of this news are contradictory." I agree.
The title suggests Sony as the guys handing out the sweets when infact the content suggests the BDA. The question was directed at all the studios under BDA (Including Sony pictures) Why would Sony give Sony pictures (i.e. themselves) "Sweetners" to be in the BDA? Sony: - Here Sony, have some sweets to be my friend.. Sony (Turning around): - Thanks Sony, I'm your best buddy now! This is B.S.
is paying money out left and right... its just logical.
Of course they are, because in spite of what they would have you believe, HD DVD is right with them, both selling very very few movies or players, thus far. I've said it many times, if HD sales are 5% of the market right now (last I heard), and bluray is outselling HD DVD 2:1, then bluray is 3% of the market, and HD DVD is 2%. If you believe it takes Paramount 150 million from MS to go HD DVD exclusive, then you must believe that Sony (or perhaps a company that has less interest in the format war, since MS doesn't have much to gain or lose, while Sony does) had to pay Disney so much, or Fox, or any bluray exclusive company. If there is one little sliver of a pie left, and I don't cut it in half quite right, that's what we have with HD DVD vs bluray right now. The difference is not big enough, and hardly noticable on the grand scheme of things right now, for companies to have to get some incentive to move to HD DVD, while others are willing to go with bluray without anything. Thank you Disney, for not lieing on this. A "no comment" is fine, but lieing about it is something totally different. If I was a stockholder in any of the other bluray excusive coperations, I would have some questions about why they're cutting out some of the market, which is not the way to make the most money.
