Universal: We're staying with HD DVD

Universal Studios has officially dispelled the rumors from Variety that it will drop HD DVD and switch to Blu-ray.

"Contrary to unsubstantiated rumors from unnamed sources, Universal's current plan is to continue to support the HD DVD format," said Ken Graffeo, executive vice president of HD strategic marketing for Universal Studios Home Entertainment and also co-president of the HD DVD Promotional Group.

The response would have come sooner, but many HD DVD executives were on flights home from CES when the story from Variety broke.

Nothing to do with the gaming industry, no new tech is shown, and no techical information. it has nothing to do with gaming but the MOVIE side of the format.

Funny that i swore the ps3 had a bluray drive in it and the 360 has a hd-dvd drive.. lol

the format that won this war was tied to the gaming industry .. im sure the PS3 would have survived had HD-DVD won, but now that Blu-ray has all but won its a different story and any of us news obsessed freaks know it.

they were staying with both! They won't announce it till they are ready.

The only reason for any studio to stay with HD-DVD anymore is that they basically only have to compete with 30% of Hollywood for the format, and that is a sad reason indeed.

tug-of-war articles...

"Universal has confirmed with us they're going to blu-ray"
"No we're not"
"Yes you are!"
"AGHAGHAHGAHGHAG" *punch punch kick chair*

Now I'm wondering who's the more credible news site

News and credible should never be used in the same sentence.

Universal: 1
Sony Droids: 0

We need to wait and see. Warner said the same thing before they went blu-ray.

These rumors won't end like MGS4 to 360.

InYourMom when things like this happen,
or this , you know why Sony "Droids" are telling them to abandon ship, cause Universal is not going to make any money. Look what the Porn industry did, they went Neutral, Now they are making a bonus amount of money, because of Demand of BD Porn. So why dont you get your head out of your arse mate?

Your right. I say the same thing about the poor devs/publishers who keep losing money releasing games on the PS3. But for some reason that same analogy doesn't sit well with droids.
