i've been talking about this and people said i was lieing.if people don't think that other movie studios wany jump on this are crazy,hell all they have to do is use their brains.why wouldn't a studio support this format when it has the same picture as br but they could make it for the same price as a regular dvd.look at it this way,why would i spend $30 for 1 movie for a 1080p picture when i could spend about the same amount as a regular dvd with a 1080p to,hell if you are willing to pay about $10 to $15 more for the same movie just because you have a ps3 and a sony fan you are crazy.if they get 1 major studio to sign with them it will be the end to br.
