Lots of blogs and sites that barely cover high-def disc formats are suddenly coming out with plenty of coverage now of the recent news about Warner's end to format neutrality.
lol God! I love this
the logo will definitely help HDDVD sales. After all price is what matters.
I'm going to miss this war. It was a lot of fun.
they do seem a little worried about it but if you read a little towards the end...well...I was laughing. Bubbles anyone?
PS Thanks for the bubbles!!!
but then again, announcement now was just a shocker. but Warner Bros. will still be releasing HD-DVD movies up until May.
It's not a lost cause yet.
the format isnt over just yet. There is still a long road ahead for BluRay but with WB joining the BluRay camp exclusively, HDDVD looses a BIG player for their team. Blu's odds of winning just increased. If you think about how the move of Paramount to HDDVD was it was the total opposite. The only one that seemed to have been more affected by it was Paramount because their sales actually decreased compared to what they would have sold if they would have stayed with Bluray. Even if it they would have gone neutral it would have been a better move for them. Lets wait and see what happens in the next months. For now, I just wanted to have a little fun.
"Here’s something to remember about your HD DVD player and collection:
* They still work - (for now)
* There are still discs coming out (for now)
* You can buy stuff cheap from the people who are running for the hills - (yea so)"

I wonder if the "The Day After" will be on Blu-ray? It scared the Hell outta me as a youngster. 8D
/edit: ABC Circle Films (1983). ABC is owned by Disney so yes, maybe it will go Blu!
maybe a remake, who knows
kind of feel sorry for HD-DVD
Exclusively on Blu-ray. Oi!
sad bastards blogging about it now. should've went with Sony you little biitchez AHAHAHA
On full steam!!!!
Wonder when these guys are going to close down their sites?
"COMMENTS ARE CLOSED"
LOOKS LIKE IT'S BAH HUMBUG TIME OVER AT HD-DVD
A minute of silence
find it funny that MS will probably be using Blu-ray for their next xbox as their game disc....... or maybe according to Bill Gates, it'll just be a digital format being sent to your console via broadband in the near future.
including n4g.com that shouldn't have half of its front page nothing but HD format war stories yet it is.....this is a place of gaming news, and blu ray and hd dvd hardly have any thing to do with that.
but its the only high point of the sonyfanboys low end crap first year.
If you are in the least bit interested in Media and Entertainment which includes video games and movies, then you'll want to know something like this. Why is this all over the internet? Its big news for the industry, good or bad (all in perception) it will show where we're headed. So take your head out of your 360's butt, and realize that. You will see changes in strategy from console makers like Microsoft. They were backing HD-DVD and promising that if you bought that add-on you won't be sorry. But what will they say now?
People seriously don't understand the huge tide this Warner announcement really is.
bubble if you remember who this guy was
This is actually the best time to get a HD-DVD Player. Once it drops to around $40, it's going to be the BEST DVD Upscaler for the price. And I'm being serious. Once I see one of those bad boys down that price, I'm getting one. And heck, I'll even buy a HD-DVD or two. It's not going to make a difference in the "format war" anyway. It's just gonna be a awesome DVD Upscaler.
Atleast some use. That`s nice. =)
But Toshiba lost the BIG war and that was inevitable.
IF they wanted atleast stay DRAW, they should join x360 with HD DVD by the time, while price should be the same - 399$. They would lose around 1,2-1,6 bln. $(150-200$ on every x360), but atleast wouldn`t lose the war. Sony would have to accept hd-dvd. But now it`s too late.
p.s. And you can`t delay the conference on ces, because ces just will end. You can only cancel that conference.
