Warner Bros.' decision to back the format makes buying a PS3 less of a gamble for gamers-and promises licensing fees in the future
whaaa? when was it ever a gamble, if you bought it early like i did you had to be patient, not worried.
The only gamble was buying anything HD-DVD.
OMG NO MORE BlU RAY NEWS PLZ GOD
I second that.
4th (Blu-ray news isn't fun anymore cause we can't argue with bots anymore :[)
So... knowing that you don't like blu-ray threads you came into this one, proceeded to read it, AND THEN(!!!) decided to post in it?!? That's an odd choice.
5th....but it doesn't take away my right to comment on one of the details of this posting.
This is turning into the official bluray fan site, ENOUGH ALREADY, who cares about bluray, this has nothing to do with gaming.
Considering games are now being made on blu-ray it does have to do with gaming. Especially when you consider that more disc space is being proven to be very useful if not essential.
Blu ray is a big factor in this gen gaming esp for the PS3 and indirectly its competition. I do agree will all thought that this is enough.Until Paramount switch to blu only or the HD-dvd group concede. There is no point recycling the same news.
its the best console with the best games(MGS4,KZ2,LBP,FF13 etc) and its the best and cheapest or cheap blue ray player!
"makes buying a PS3 less of a gamble for gamers" Wow, that is very stupid. If Blu-Ray lost from HD DVD (which is highly unlikely), that doesn't mean they will stop making games in the Blu-Ray format. Look what happened to UMD. Is the PSP dead?
Blu-ray would have survived through PS3 anyway. What this means is that demand for PS3 will be even higher, not to mention that Sony will be able to cut costs for PS3 even faster considering the amount of support that Blu-ray will increasingly get in the industry. Had that not happened, it would have ended up like the PSP; still strong, though not as strong as it could.
as much as i loved the fall of HD-DVD this is enoth i used to love reading how sonny got there ass handed to them y it made me laff evin tho im a sony fanboy half the stuff they said was true but the otha half was so funny but this it was like yay more people bye ps3 coz its a cheap good blue-ray blayer and then they will get some good games (call of duty 4 and when it comes out metal gear online) so more people will be online and it will be better for all of us but now this is just boarig anny of u mind the ps3 song how its says play motorstorm 1000 times aday they should change it to read blue-ray news 1000 times a day lol
has there even been a single week HD outsold Blu-Ray?
i wasn't on about that em on about overall all the stuff that was said about sony and the playstation 3 i loved reading that coz it was funny
seriously, everyone apologize to ken kutaragi now, although he's a crazy guy!!!! ***Starts Kissing Ken's Feet***
Everyone bashed him and Sony even doubted him to the point of firing him but more and more we are seeing his foresight. Blu-ray is proving to be a great innovation as well as the cell with more and more studios praising the cell and better and better games coming out for PS3. Ken got it right as far as I'm concerned. As time progresses I think we will see this more and more. Though a little off the man has has made 3 excellent consoles. Gotta give the respect
it is a fantastic gaming console with a lot of multimedia functionalities, and good games with a lot to come. for me it was never a gamble, i know what i bought.
Blu-ray and the cell esp are cutting edge tech when they came out(still is i believe). To give you an idea. The PS3 launch was delayed because they could't manufacture enough blu-ray drives as it was that new. Also with the cell and its architecture. It is very different from traditional PC architecture which the x360 is based on. Sony had the vision to see that at most 10 years you will need blu ray, HDMI 1.3, Wifi and multi-core programming for High-def games which most so called experts scoffed at.Sony knew that if people are patient and as time goes by and when the masses get into high-def. They will reap the benefits like we are already starting now.You my friend are a minority that saw the future and knew just like i did what the PS3 was about and will be.
I guess you could say it was a gamble if you were buying the PS3 solely for playing blu-ray but if you bought it as a gaming machine then i don't think it was a gamble.
HDDVD is dead, Ha Ha Ha!!!!!!
Thats why its not gaming news, all tech news goes here. You morons should at least know WTF you're talking about before you whine.
... but, like it or not, the fact BR has won has for sure pushed folks to buy the PS3, even the folks with NO DESIRE to play video games. I (along with 2 others at work) were holding off on the PS3 since we love our 360's and XBL. But we new the PS3 had some nice games on the way, but still not enough to talk ourselves into buying a PS3. SOON AS THE BR ANNOUNCMENT WAS MADE, within a few days we all bought a PS3. So a gamble ... "not really" , but more of a "Nudge" to get people to jump into the pool.
how sony has tricked the industry into pretty much believeing they invented and made what blu ray is....specially the sonyfanboys. lol http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... the sonydroids believe sony **** gold and pisses silver and they invented blu ray alone.
umm, i don't think 1 person has stated Sony created/invented the format? almost everyone knows its not just sony, however sony have played a major part in pushing the format
Doesn't this suggest then, Sony are making profits on the 40GB version if they're only losing $100 on each of the new models?
