FiveFWD: Suzi and Jason discuss if Blu-ray players are all they are cracked up to be, or are upscale DVD players just as good?
Only an idiot thinks upscaled dvd is close. This video is clear proof.
BU BU BUT BLU RAY = Fail and DVD is just as good ......!!! GTFO... :/ BLU RAY = WIN PS3 Games that use blu ray propley = what the 360 can never do..... But im still keeping both consoles ;-D
How much do you wanna bet all those "idiots" who have been saying that upscaled DVD is just as good don't show up for their slice of humble pie? I have been waiting for this since I popped in my first BR in my PS3. I did a video comparison at home because my black monster also upscales DVD. Results = GTFO no comparison at all for true HD you gotta pop in that BR disc. LMAO at the haters.
Yeah, I have someone at work who says they cant tell the difference between Blu-ray and DVD. Maybe he has bad eyes or something. To me the difference is night and day. Ive been waiting for a while to get a Blu-ray player. Think maybe ill pick up a PS3 for chirstmas or something.
are people who don't have an hdtv.. they really don't know what they're talking about.. someone who i know doesn't have an hdtv said.. all bluray does is that it makes green colors look greener... which sadly some people live in this big denial.. Bluray is a new technology and it rocks.. it's here to stay fellas.. accept it.
Its common for people to not see a difference, many of those people really start noticing the difference when they have to go from pure HD programming to SD to realize what they were missing out on.
me having a bad eye, i can't seem to tell much difference my self.. unless i remove my contact lenses and go like proper close.. so i dunno..
No mention of a DVD in this ad. They talked about perfecting the picture and the crystal clear picture plus HD sound. The 60 sec. commercial ended with "own it on Blu-ray". The commercial directly following it was the "Entertainment Unleashed" PS3 tv spot. It featured many PS3 games and The Dark Knight Blu-ray. Pure ownage! :)
well i have a SD 50" TV and BLU RAY and DVD look about the same to me.. but i have seen the diff on a HD tv.. the BLU RAY looks better but for me BLU RAY does nothing.. hell if you watch SD programming on a HD TV it looks like A$$, and i see the difference in about 2 seconds. HD is the future but if you still have a SD TV then BLU RAY is just an expensive DVD
"Only an idiot thinks upscaled dvd is close. This video is clear proof." The video is not "clear proof". I personally can see the difference on MY tvs, with both a bluray and an upscaling dvd player but surely not in this video. And for the record, movies on my non-upscaling dvd player looks just as good. Bluray movies have a clear picture and better sound but it is not a "major leap" over DVD. Sorry, if you expected something else that's just my opinion on it.
Likedamaster U never own a Blu Ray drive or ps3 stop trolling here There is a massive difference between the images. Others see AVS FORUMS comparisons
Many only comment on the picture being "clearer" but I have two other aspects that turn my head and that is color and sound. Not only are the frames clearer and sharper but the colors in BD are much more vibrant and the sound is simply amazing. That is why I go BD now and have yet to buy a single DVD since the PS3 came out. I have hundreds of DVD's still and have replaced a few of them since but that is a whole other story for a later thread.
Where have all the retards like POG and Omega4 gone in this thread? Lol.
To me it depends on the tv you have. My hdtv is almost 4 years old and when I watch a blu ray, I dont see much difference from my upscaled dvd.
I have already mention this at least a million times saying that those who cant see and hear the difference should get their eyesight n hearing checked from their family doctor. Well those ppl are just ignorant if they aint blind for making claims that DVD upscale look as good.
@ CrippleH - "Only an idiot thinks upscaled dvd is close" This is a very stupid comment to make. There are many factors to consider here, size of TV owned, quality of TV owned, viewing distance, eye sight, there are many factors that rule out the use of uneducated blanket statements like yours. I personally love the increased sound and picture quality that you achieve with blu-ray but then again i have a quality HD TV that is large enough to show the difference in PQ at the distance that i sit from the TV and an HDMI receiver. I also have 20/15 vision. Many people are not in the same boat as myself so they may not appreciate the difference in PQ and lets face it, some people still watch VHS. Just because you own a PS3 doesn't mean you have to post stupid comment to support blu-ray. I support blu-ray and i don't own a PS3 and you don't see me spouting stupid comments. Then again the maturity level of many members on this site is quite low. The other problem with blu-ray that the video pointed out is the cost-benefit analysis that you have to go through. Blu-ray is still pricey but once the discs themselves hit the price of current new release DVD versions of the same movie and the players drop another $100 across the board, then i think adoption will take off. @ superaktieboy - it doesn't matter that you have a bad eye you should still be able to see the difference apparently, I feel sorry for the people with the low IQ that disagreed with your comment.
Because they are watching the freaking BD(yes its BD not BR) movies on SDTVs! WOWOWOWOW, I knew something was wrong when some people i knew said DVD looked the same, until they watched both on my friends 57" HDTV, then they cried at how dumb they are.
Bravo and +bubbles for mentioning a screen size and not just typing "blu-ray FTW" like so many other people. I agree that if you are watching blu-ray on a 57 inch HDTV at the correct viewing distance and you can not see a difference then something is wrong. Whether or not people are willing to pay for that difference though is another matter entirely.
Bluray has a marketing slogan of: "Without bluray, your hdtv is just...tv". I think it can go both ways. "Without hdtv your bluray is just...dvd". Those who dont have hdtv definitely NEED one in order to really see what blu has to offer. Not only improving the movie experience but everything. I can't even watch cable on a regular tv after seeing it on my 42" samsung.
Well said darthv72
I saw this when it was on. Proof that my money invested into HD TV etc wasn't wasted :D .
I've been playing HD games and movies since then and there's no going back.
ive been playing hd games for about 10 years now upscaling can't come close to bluray but upscaling is still needed because people still have dvd collections. why should people buy all there movies again just because a new format comes out?
Exactly. Only idiots would do that. I don't think they have a problem rebuying movies they own on DVD though. They don't watch the movies, they watch the quality of the picture. Kind of like people who play games because of the graphics and not because it's fun. These are the same persons that usually feel a desperate need to show off their new gadgets to friends.
What makes you think people rebuy their films on Blu-ray again? Or it that the only did you can have at blu-ray?
1) TV SIZE directly affects upscaling quality. While 1080p Will look great on 70inch screens, dvd upscale will not. 2) The Raw uncomperssed Audio tracks on bluray movies vs. standard dvd audio is leaps and bounds better.
It doesn't matter what size HDTV you have there is a huge difference between Blu-Ray and Upscale DVD. I have a 26 inch HDTV and a 42 inch HDTV and Blu-Ray looks much better on both. Uscaling DVD does improve the Picture on HDTV's but not enough to really compete with Blu-Ray. Nothing beats a true high def (Blu-Ray) Picture. Not trying to sound like a commercial but Blu-Ray is the best.
I watched a blu-ray movie at a buddies house on his ps3 (he don't have a HDTV) and it looks the same. but when I watch blu-ray on 42 inch 1080P it just looks soooo marvelous.
can't upscale data stored on DVD. My point is its not just about visual quality. Upscale dvd is only a tempoary solution for some people for movies only. Content is always increasing in size. Blu ray in needed.
The HD format war is O-V-E-R.
bots are in denial :( das a shame!! where livin in the future and they crying ova the past
If it's over, why do your comments smell of fear? As soon as one of these pop up you droids are here to defend, all of you. Sounds like fear over the "fact" that Blu-ray hasn't done so good, and during the shoping season to.
Jason, because you *bots* keep saying bluray ish deeeeeed! Sony sucks! Down with Sonnnnnny! HD-DVD is dead.
HD DVD was dead a long time ago, I didnt support that format so saying "HD DVD is dead" does nothing to me. It's like shooting a BB at a tank. You should try some Netflix in HD or upscales DVD, or download from the marketplace. Oh... my bad, silly me you don't have em. All three are stomping the hell out of Blu-ray.
Suzi Perry!!! ;-P + They did a 'Top 5' of must have games for xMas and look what was 1st!!!... http://fwd.five.tv/videos/t... ;-P Can't see any xBox 360 Exclusives in the List??? ;-D
Oh, but I have no interest in that when I can watch the same movies on the internet! :)
Stop defending. I am thinking if you spent even 1/10th of the time you waste defending sony on playing 360 games, you'd be a much happier person. That reminds me, did you buy a 360 like you said you were going to?
1. Grow up. 2. It's a Christmas gift. Why do you care whether I bougght one yet or not? 3. Stop stalking my comments. 5. Call 1800-GET-A-LIFE.
1. I have an excellent life. 2. You don't. 3. Hurry up and get a boyfriend so you not so b1tchy all the time 4. Hurry up and get a 360 so you don't waste time on futile SDF activity 5. Call 1800-Juuken-can't-count XD
1. I have an excellent life. (Sure you do.) 2. You don't. (Screw you. :D You know nothing about me.) 3. Hurry up and get a boyfriend so you not so b1tchy all the time (How do you know I don't have one now? Is it any of your business whether I have one or not?) 4. Hurry up and get a 360 so you don't waste time on futile SDF activity (Hurry up and get a PS3 because you don't want to miss out on kick ass exclusives. Maybe it'll open your eyes a little and you can stop lying to yourself.) 5. Call 1800-Juuken-can't-count (1-800-HITLER-FANBOY) It was a typo idiot. :]
You are THE most defensive nutjob I have seen on N4G, Juuken.
It's funny but it looked like the one on the left looked better right away to me. I guess watching things in HD is paying off for me. Also she looked pretty good in those purple nylon stockings.
Suzi is sex on legs. Love her on MotoGP
That girl is hott! While everyone was drawn to the screen playing the blu-ray, i was drawn to her and those legs! Schwing!
Full HD experience only on the PS3. I failed once again my young Xbots.
I stream HD Netflix movies & tv and/or buy HD movies & tv on Xbox Live. No disk required.
psychical disk i can take 2 my mates, lend some off him and get hours and hours of extra features :)
Sorry my brainwashed xbot, HD on Netflix is worse than upscaled DVD.
have you streamed netflix hd stuff yet ? its freakign horrible quality it looks like a web video blown up to 1920x1080. no were near the quality of upscaling dvds let alone a blu ray movie.
This isnt really rocket science is it? If you like having the best picture/audio quality when watching your movies: Blu-ray > dvd Only a fool would say otherwise.
a fool or hd dvd suporter oh wait there same thing ;)
Doesn't matter to me too much, I'm a pirate. I'm just waiting for discs to get cheaper.
Yeah I use the ps3 to watch my burned blurays. Works like a charm. They had a good sale on blank blurays for $5 each not to long ago.
if you are a pirate......you're part of the reason discs cost what they do!!!
Yeah I guess. It'll get cheaper anyways.
BD-R's $5.28 a piece ~ http://www.tapeandmedia.com...
hddvd n dvd fanboys just got pawned like b*tches!!
I have both the ps3 and 360. I have only 1 bluray movie (spiderman 3) and I have the 360 hddvd drive and a few more movies (5 freebies). I just got a new 42" samsung. While spiderman 3 looked really impressive on bluray, I was equally impressed with transformers on hddvd. I bought the regular dvd version before I got the hddvd drive and transformers (as one of the free movies). Honestly I can't tell the difference in the visual quality at 720p between bluray and hddvd. I can tell a difference between the hddvd and dvd (of the same movie). I know I would need the bluray copy to really do a personal comparison, but what would be the point. I like movies and "prefer" to get them on dvd for one simple reason. Flexibility. I can take the dvd on the go for the kids or watch it in any room of the house with a tv/dvd in it. Blu is nice (really nice) but at the moment it isnt as versatile as dvd (for me personally).
and they didn't talk much about color, which is way better on bluray. in fact watching a DVD after a bluray feels like everything has been washed out. that's why people who pretend they see no difference are so full of sh!t and don't give me downloadable bull: DD is nowhere near bluray quality
with a 42" Tv you wouldnt be able to tell the difference. 50" and up my friend. thats known through the HDTV world.
I almost bought the 50" samsung (pn50a450) for $899 but settled for the 42" version (pn42a450) for $649. $250 diff when both did the same specs wasnt worth it to me. Now I am looking to replace my 30" samsung crt hdtv with a 32" lcd. I wasnt sure which was better for games. I chose plasma for the deeper colors and contrast when watching movies. I figured LCD would be better for games but please correct me if I am wrong. I am looking for one that can do at least 1360x768 which most LCD's do but plasma's...not so much. The 50" samsung could have done that but I chose otherwise.
The format war is not between Blu-Ray and DVD. It's between downloadable content and disk format. DLC will win. It's too convenient.
DLC is for quick watching...you will never see good 1080p DLC...the bandwidth is not there.... DLC will complement DVD and Bluray. Bluray is 1080p real HD video and sound DVD is 480p...for casual viewing and for people who do not have HDTVs. DLC is for casual viewing and for people with out 1080p HDTVs and who have good internet bandwidth.
DLC is worse than DVD??? How so??? Or are you one of those sony fanboys that talk out of your bunghole? The 360 has 720p downloads and its highly agreed that 720p and 1080p shows no difference unless you own a 60 inch tv. The majority of hi def tv's are 42inches and 50 inches and their is absolute no difference in 720p and 1080p. UnwantedDreamz... "I knew this was coming. Let me be the first to school you. People want a disc that they can hold in their hands" Tell that to the music industry. Sure you did dude. It's common knowledge that 720p and 1080p has zero difference with a tv 50 inches or below. If you can see a difference your either Superman or just a talking bunghole spewing out crap.
DLC will do fine in rentals, but not in purchased product. You can't sell, lend, borrow, or trade, a DL.
I knew this was coming. Let me be the first to school you. People want a disc that they can hold in their hands. DDL will not win crap until it is widely accepted as being superior and even then people want a movie collection not a file collection. The disc is no where near dieing. Hold yer breath I dont see your future coming anytime soon. @ skadoosh I tested your theory at home with a downloaded movie and the BR version I own. Guess what? You guessed it you are full of it. I have done my homework like a responsible consumer BR has better quality then current DDL. LMAO at you calling anyone a fanboy with your comment. Tell us all what kind of BR player you used for your comparison or are you just BSing us? Edit: I knew you would bring up the music industry. Apples and oranges hahaha you cant compare one to the other because the people who drive those markets are in different demographics. Older, less likley to adopt DDL, people drive home movie sales younger people, more likley to support DDL, drive music sales. One more thing even with the success of DDL in the music industry I stll see CD's at Best Buy. LMAO Ok fair enough until I see a comparison using a true upscaler I will not comment.... oh wait I did just see it in the vid and oh no they agree with me. So I need to buy the best upscaler to prove that it is only slightly inferior to BR? Well you made my point already and now we are just going back and forth about the degree to wich BR owns upscalers. Wow Try again!
@Skadoosh "The 360 has 720p downloads and its highly agreed that 720p and 1080p shows no difference unless you own a 60 inch tv." Highly agreed by who? You don't need to go as high as 60 inches to lose quality with 720p. Quality is lost with a 720p image on any TV above 32 inches, so that means that the 40 inch to 52 inch range you're saying will show 720p well...will in fact look like crap compared to BR. That's why you don't see 32 inch tv's or below running 1080p, except a few Sharp models like the LC32GP1U (or newer models) which is just an expensive 32 inch gaming TV that doesn't truly need the 1080p since 720p would look exactly the same. Whether the DDL image is better than an upconverted dvd is relative, but with the compression and whatnot I wouldn't be surprised if DDL was generally worse, but then again I wouldn't be surprised if upped DVD looked worse either.
You're not quite correct. I own a PS3. Guess what format I use for movie watching? Guess again...I use Blu-Ray, DVDs AND DLC. I buy the Blu-Ray version for the "keeper" movies, and this list grows by the week. For movies that I want to watch, and have a hard copy of, but don't consider keepers, I'll get the DVD version. Then there are the occasions where I'm sitting in front of the TV late at night and feel like watching a stupid comedy or something to pass the time...that's when I'll do a rental from the PS Store. So, I believe there is a place for each format, with Blu-Ray slowly eating into DVD as more people switch over. But there will always be a market for DLC, and I don't see it competing with Blu-Ray directly. Not until I can download a version that gives me exactly the same image and sound quality as Blu-Ray.
