Pretty good read... I would approve this but I cant pass the test always 11/15 it kinda sad...:( This is a good read thought I didnt know that their was already a hddvd burner.. I wonder if someone can burn BR movies and take off the encryption so I can watch it in my hddvd drive..

I al ways get 14/15.. I just don't have the time like some people to try every possible answer. I think the problem is with the checkboxes.

Us HD DVD owners can dream, can't we? Casino Royale on HD DVD, here I come! If they won't support our format, we'll make the discs ourselves! :)

hehe really hokie if you find a way to remove the encryption tell me I wanna get some BR movies.. Fifth Element.... and others

HokieFan4246d ago

Yeah, I have to say that I love my HD DVD player...but not having 5th Element really sucks!

umm... why do they say that universal is backing bluray?? I thought they were still exclusively backing HD-DVD

HokieFan4246d ago

That's true...they are only supporting HD DVD right now. Must be an error in the article, I didn't even notice that.

Is stupid to be limited in movies selection, when we only want to enjoy movies themselves, not the company who's supporting them..

PS3 fan or not, it would be cool if you guys could see BR movies on your HDDVD player and viceversa or just be dealing with only one [email protected] format so we can all enjoy any movies we like..

I'm really hoping that the dual-format players catch on and get cheaper so they can produce movies on whatever format the prefer, and none of the early adopters wasted any money.
