Sony's Blu-ray seen winning DVD format war

The Blu-ray format has gained the upper hand in the battle for next-generation DVD supremacy.

Blu-ray will enjoy exclusive support from four of the six major Hollywood movie studios, with only Universal Pictures and Paramount Pictures supporting HD-DVD.

Ya Universal first
Paramount has soon has it can too tho.
Heres hoping they make them pay to get back in lol

Kleptic3304d ago

Paramount is the one that went HD DVD exclusive recently...with the public reaction around that (and continued poor sales...transformers didnt' have a quarter of the effect the HDDVD camp was hoping for), I would bet Paramount would jump back sooner rather than later...

Universal will be the last to do it I bet...They will be the most humiliated overall by this if HD DVD does fail...and will take a lot of the blame for all the confusion in the first place...

because of that stupid contract with Paramount, but we'll just have to wait and see

But both will release a statement SOON...lol

I thought Bluray wasn't Sony's technology. They just use it in the PS3

Azures3304d ago

They do own a decent chunk of it and do stand to profit from its popularity. Both in the PS3 and via the format itself.

nice_cuppa3304d ago

this is a gaming website not a movie website.

the fact blu-ray is in my ps3 was a good reason to have an article but not constant articles all day every day.

lets move on shall we !
