ahhhhhh... HDDVD is going to win.. ahhhh.. no its blueray.. no its hddvd.. no its blueray.. aw crap, guess we'll have to wait for next year to see an actual format be preferred and take the lead. We'll just have to wait and see.

MaximusPrime4257d ago

the thing is, both the add on for the XBox 360 (HD DVD player) and the PS3 are cheaper then the actual players. but MS arnt really helping things with the video downloads off market place, but then again i could be wrong as i live in the UK and arnt allowed to download them (even though you can just make an account that states you live in the USA lol)

advertisements lately, it's been DVD and HD-DVD for the past few weeks. Could the tide be turning in HD's favor???

Not unless HD DVD can draw in all the big studios that Blu-Ray has under it's wing because of the extra capacity which isn't going to happen seeing as at the last confrence the major players were touting there support for Blu-Ray over any other format...

On another note if you check some of the forums some HD DVD owners have gone on an organised sales increase spending every little penny they had on HD DVD's to try and upsell the figures, pretty sad if you ask me being anyone with half a brain cell could of weighed up all the facts a year ago and realised that Blu-Ray would come out on top...

What good is dvd hardware without software?
Don't even make me go and get the list of which film studios are on what side and embarass the HD DVD camp weve been here before...

Sony using their video games division to try and push their next format. What better way to get people to buy blu-ray discs than to pre-maturely push out their "videogame" system with no games. Let's also give away free blu-ray vouchers and include those totals in with the numbers for their then "gameless system" induced sales to create a pretty picture for the movies studios to remain faithful to their cause. can paint either side as looking pathetic/desperate.

I am sure most of you good little corporate cheerleaders will claim one side or the other has won, but the more sensible people agree that this battle has a ways to go yet.

for this format war I am sitting on the side lines. Letting everyone else waste their money before the dust settles. Digital Download FTW :)

I'm waiting for this HD-dvd uprising to make its way over here in the US as i think it will sooner than later.
