PSM3, the UK PS3 Mag, gives its 2 pennies worth on blu-ray.
Blu ray is worth it for games bigger storage anyway if HD-DVD wins sony will just release a firmware upgrade so that you can watch hd-dvds just like dual players blue diode laser reads HD-DVDS
I can't believe someone would be so stupid. He sure can't see more than three months into the future. Anyone with a brain can see Blu-ray will be huge in a year. Developers are already complaining about DVD. How can anyone say Blu-ray doesn't matter? If you want HD graphics and sound today you need more than DVD.
When they said it only looks better than DVD-but not by much. Ever think about other features, and yes, it does look a lot better.
If you cant afford it you tend to move away saying 2nd best is all you need. Im sorry but its like cars.... a car is a car does it matter. Im pretty sure those individuals who buy bmw's or mercedes will not be as happy with a civic or accord.
Blu Ray and HD dvd have supreme relevance in about 6 months.
Yes, I care. Blu ray + 1080p + 7.1 surround sound = me getting laid 1/2 the time...
You made me laugh so bubbles for you!
Funny. I have Blu ray, 7.1 and 1080p and I can't get laid. I am not sure why. These are a couple of pictures of me.
HAHA did you read that Fabio and George Clooney got in a yelling match a couple weeks back? I have my money on Fabio!
I should care as well LOL
Even Funnier, Fabio said "George started his career on ER and that's where I was about to send him" <Classic! Fabio is a cool kat.
might as well go back to the VHS. VHS is still good.(sarcastic, sarcastic).
When you do the math I rather have blu ray if I'm paying the same amount for both consoles. I would feel ripped off if I bought a 360. It doesn't take a genious to see what a deal the PS3 is. If you bought a 360 a year ago then it was a good choice but now I think the PS3 is the logical choice with a better future ahead of it. PS3 is about to start pumping 1st party games that blow away everything else and no one can denied that
PS3 40GB for 399.99 and 3 good games or XBOX 360 20GB for 349.99 and 20+ great games and the best online service. I did not buy my 360 to watch movies I bought it to play games.
As a PSWii60 owner I do not feel ripped off at all. I love gaming on my 360 and have no problems recommending it to others. The same goes for the PS3 and the Wii.
You have 20 games on your Xbox 1.5 but you have nothing to play them on. It's always in the shop. Bwahaha.
who cares? .....UK LOL
Please dont tell me you think youre better because your american. Thats pretty sad and something id expect a 7 year old to say.
Actually I go as far to say most Americas are way to full of themselves. And I'm an America! But I'm blame our government for that. :)
buck the format war im so sick of it.by the way i do blu
I like Blu-ray mainly because it gives the PS3 bigger storage for games. For movies I could care less. But since I have a PS3 I'll be on Blu-ray's side. I can still stick with DVD for movies right now though. I think Microsoft made a huge mistake. The 360 was released at least six months too soon. Why the rush? They want the 360 to last until 2011 now but I don't see that happening. Soon DVD will start hurting the 360. Then they'll rush to bring out a new console.
I do. That thing can carry a ton of space and its being used for games. How awesome is that?
I was always a supporter of Blu-Ray, Just never got really into buiding up a library until I bought a Sony Vaio laptop which plays Blu-Ray now I buy loads of them considering I'm at college away from my friends and consoles. With little else to do. So in short I care for Blu-Ray.
As a PS3 owner I support it by default. Cool with me for games but at this time I could care less about watching movies on my PS3.
When there are a lot more movies to choose from or if you dont already have a HD TV and get one, You may find yourself caring more ;)
I have the 50in Samsung Ultra. I just upgraded to Direct TV's HD service and I have to admit that the HD channels look a whole lot better than the normal channels. I am still waiting on my 5 free Blu-ray movies so I have yet to watch a Blu-ray movie on my PS3. Is there that much difference or more from DVD to Blu-ray? Any suggestions on a Blu-ray movie to try out? I'm thinking 300.
sorry for the late reply man. 300? I wouldnt know I dont have it but I was thinking of buying it this weekend. While I cant tell you what movies are good because it's a matter of taste I have heard the Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest is suppose to look fantastic. Spiderman 3 also. If you are a james bond fan and didnt get Casino Royale I'm sure you can pick up a second hand one cheap and in good condition considering they were given away free.
I'm watchin a blu ray movie right noww.
Then why are you posting? ;)
I didnt think much until i bought a bravia 40 inch and 7.1 sony receiver and pop my game in there . Now im in heaven
Oh wow. "Can't fit every episode of Simpsons on one disc!" That was a serious load of crap he spewed out. So little of it made sense, I doubt he was even serious.
he's right'there's no way in hell that all the simpson episodes can fit on 1 disc,if you think for a while then you would know that he was right to when he said that a br movie takes up a lot more space then a movie in 480 and that's a fact,and if they could put all the episodes of the simpson on 1 disk then why don't they do that with the sapranoes or other series,but instead they put them on 4 to 7 disc,the same think when a movie is over 2 1/2hrs long they put all the extras on an extra disc,the reason why is because 1080p takes up about double or more space then a movie that's in 480.i don't want to hear that they could put it all on 1 disc if they want because if they could,they would because it will save them a lot of money to put it on 1 disc instead of 2 or more but they have to and that's a fact. br doesn't hold more information then hd dvd anymore because they voted on the 51gb hd dvd disc and it passed and disney was one of the companies that voted yes even when sony was trying to get people to vote no. disney isn't worried about sony,all they care about is disney.hd dvd players been flying off the selfs with the sales and disney been watching this and they know that they could make a bigger profit if they start using hd dvd,so they voted yes even when sony was trying to get them to vote no because i bet by the end of next year or before they will have disney movies on hd dvds,if disney wasn't interrested in hd dvd then why did they vote yes instead of no so they could stop hd dvds it their place but instead voted to put then even with br.just think about it for a while and stop being bias and you will see what i'm talking about.
I think Blu-Ray is a step forward from DVD. The quality of the sound and video are A LOT better. It may not be a huge step, but at least it's a step.
I have been saying much the same as this article since the new formats were released. The players cost A HELL OF A LOT MORE THAN DVD, so do the disks. The difference in quality is not that hot. Its nice that you can squeeze more on a disk but not that much more. My PS3 can play Blu Ray and it looks nice. I have 2 blu ray movies and both were free. Given the option I would always purchase the DVD unless the price for both formats was pretty similar.
Im sorry but blu-ray offers the most in a home theatre experience. A good portion of the discs have lossless sound. It add's to the experience. Yes HD-dvd visually is just as good but it is only half the experience. If I only watch drama's and comedies then I guess hd-dvd is a much better buy but I watch alot of action and thrillers and the sound is so much better on the blu side.
Yeah noboby cares what you think. Blu-ray owns.
