High-Definition Smackdown

The Boston Globe writes:

"WHOEVER SET the standard for high-definition DVDs will make billions of dollars in the next few years, as people who own high-definition televisions replace their DVD collections with higher-quality discs and the machines to play them. These stakes explain why two corporate alliances have refused to budge for the last three years, even though competition between their two formats was delaying popular acceptance of the technology. It appears the battle took a decisive turn recently, to consumers' benefit."

The story is too old to be commented.

I personally have a Blu-ray player (PS3) and have supporting that since day 1. But i hope that HD-DVD doesn't give up, and comes out with something huge to keep the competition alive.

LoydX-mas3928d ago

The only side using stats as arguments were the Blu-ray supporters. Ex: 50gig is bigger, Blu-ray has more bandwidth, etc.

In my opinion, the reason YOU don't see anymore HD-DVD fans here anymore is because of the childish Blu-ray posts like yourself who came out of your cave or bomb shelter to gloat over a format war that will end up being just a niche market.

And also, here are a couple arguments for HD-DVD:
1. $139 for new player and get 7 free movies.
2. Movies on Combo( which makes ONE purchase instead of two for Blu-ray)

Is that $139 player the xbox 360 add-on? Don't you need a 360 powered on to use it or can you use it as a stand-alone without a presence of a 360?
