The guy said: "HD-DVD discs, particularly those from Warner Brothers, are better featured and cheaper"

Cheaper? In my country, HD-DVD disk have always been more expensive than BluRay disk, by about $2 to $4 each!

Is there a country where HD-DVD disks are cheaper than BluRay???

I think they mean the players are cheaper. I've never seen a disk cheaper either and its well known the combo disk's are more.

Dating back to TGS 06 Sony has won every conference against Nintendo and Microsoft thus far. GDC 08 will be no different with Microsoft and Nintendo both under-deliver and Sony will have a good enough showing to please everyone. This is the one year aniversary of Home and LittleBig planet. Expect some good news about HOme and LBP coming GDC.

Coming from the owner of both formats, PS3 + 360 drive, I'm glad blu-ray won and that blu-ray had a great CES showing

There is no doubt HDDVD currently has more features, and with the same video quality, it is the superior format as of now. BUT my support lies with Blu-ray, mainly due to the fact that a new format has to become the successor to DVDs as a computer storage medium sometime in the near future... and I'd take the 25 gigs over 15 gigs any day (forget dual/triple layers... DL-DVDs has shown its not cost effective even after all this time). Morever, the features offered on HDDVDs will soon become a standard on BDs as well.

I'm sure blu-ray will drop in price and will start to become a standard in PCs and burners will roll out at bargain prices... certainly can't wait for that day!

RIP HDDVD... I'll bury you nicely besides my betamax... or maybe I'll just wrap it and send it to someone I don't like
