HD DVD is a thing of the Past

Man thats dead and made consumers. Suffers. Lets not try to remember it

The faster BD can completely dominate the format wars, the lighter the losses will be for ill informed consumers who buys a soon obsolete HD-DVD player. Sony just needs Warner Bros to join its exclusive camp and that will basically seal it.

BluRay Disc FTW!

Not that anyone who supports bluray can really say that's a sign of HD DVD being dead. Every time I come to the tech section, I see Sony fanboys complaining about Paramount.

I say we complain about ALL of them! What gives Fox, Universal, Paramount, Sony, and Disney the right to tell me what format I should buy unless they give me the money for it?

I don't see why anyone would condone a company telling consumers what they want, and not letting the consumer choose what they want and let the loser just die.

OMFG can't believe I just wrote that, oh well time to see if I can ski in hell.

Nope there's only room for one format and it's Blu-Ray.. HD-DVD is not that much better than DVD I mean it's already encountered limitations ...

fury4875d ago

You shouldn't pick sides, I are agree, but you should also stop ranting one day about X360 and the other day about PS3. You're very b!tchy and moody, do you have your andropause?

This guy doesn't support Sony buying out support for Blu-Ray, but makes absolutely no mention about the recent HD-DVD Paramount deal that played to the tune of $150 million.

I completely agree. Although I have not chosen sides on this issue, this writer's metality is very strange. First of all, Sony is not the only Blu-Ray supporter. Neither are the studios. There are many technology companies that are stake holders in the Blu-Ray camp. So for him to argue solely agaisnt Sony seems a bit strange. Also, He claims "as a relatively conscientious consumer of technology, I simply cannot get onboard with that philosophy on winning people over through force." That's a bit weird because he bought the add-on for the X360, which would imply that he, at the very least, supports Microsoft product? That should be a fair assumption. Isn't MS's whole strategy, which is highly successful, based on brute force? Odd. I own both an X360 and a PS3, and again, I haven't yet bought into a format, but this guy's logic is a bit skewed.

blackmagic4875d ago

I think he is speaking of Sony's acquisition of MGM/Columbia/Tristar which effectively locks the studios into the blu-ray camp... Mind you, with the phrase 'conscientious consumer of technology' perhaps he is speaking of the trojan bundling of Blu-ray in the PS3.
