Such has been the impact of PS3 in Europe, that Blu-ray disc players in all categories (including consumer electronics players, IT systems and games consoles) now account for over 94 per cent of all High Definition players sold in the territory.
Wow, the story has been 30 minutes in pending section and with only one approval has reached 160 so far! Something tells me Blu-ray news is indeed interesting for members of this site ;)
Some guy sed small fish add up. damn he was right....
and some baste*d sed who cares....
-I didnt read the article
It wasn't even 3 months ago we heard all the indi euro film makers were going to HD DVD?
So which is it?
Are they or aren't they?
this heavy one
Wasn't there an announcement a while back that the HD DVD cartel was working on 2000+ Indy films to be released on HD DVD within a year? I guess this is Sony's response from their own propaganda machine.
Another nail to the HDDVD coffin! I believe its now 200 companies that support BLUERAY DISC compared to around 5 for hddvd. Blueray all the way!!! AAUUU!!!
A positive Blu-ray story from a Sony fanboy site. Big suprise.
A stupid comment from a stupid hd-dvd/xbot fanatic. Big surprise.
lol Bordello1900 you deserve bubble for that comment ...
I'm not into insulting our fellow gaming brothers. But man that had me laughing lol. Bubble+ for you bro.
Damn... guys.. I know it's a weekend and there arent many gaming news.. but do you really have to dig trying to find blu-ray news.. that for the most part mean $h!t to most people.. for example.. how this helps to people living in the us?
...even faster than Blu-Ray when DD become more viable. Unfortunately all this crap about format wars has done both formats no favors. All its done is slow down sales and giving DD time to become more of an option.
I for one won't be buying either of the HD formats because I am not a whore and don't appreciate being pimped out by hardware manufacturers.
Oh, and before people start saying DD is a pipe dream, well, just how many copies of Warhawk were purchased via download and not on physical media?
It's possible, but its a while off and will not reach the point that some sort of physical media is sold in our lifetime.
I'm not buying in to all of this either, though. $100-150 is when I would consider buying something to replace my DVD player, and only if there is a clear winner. I think HD DVD is looking good right now, but even if Walmart is selling $150 HD DVD players, I'm not going to buy one yet, because that's a lot of money to risk on a format that may or may not be around for a while. By the time bluray is there, PCD players and discs will probably be within the price range of some people, and we'll be moving on to that.
Can't complain about that, though. I really can't wait for PCD, because in college, I did plenty of DNA manipulation in bacteria, and I know that the costs of making proteins could drop dramaticly, very quickly, so long as its not patented (yes, you can get one for a protein).
Either way, HD DVD or bluray, its a war for a sinking ship.
Blu-ray will definitely crash HD DVD down the drain for sure.
Blu-ray all the way!
