Microsoft, Hollywood rush to HD DVD's defence

Microsoft, Universal and Paramount have sought to defend HD DVD from the onslaught of defections and rumours that have dogged it since the start of the year.

The story is too old to be commented.

They've lost Warner Brothers, New Line Cinema, that Porn Company, HBO,that other company that just left today....Constantin.... thats ALOT.

This is damage control to the highest degree.

Hollywood to HD DVD's defence.

This is why 70% movies are now BD exclusive

This is why Universal and Paramount announced NOTHING for HD DVD at CES 2008

This is why P & U would become BD exclusive in the COMING WEEKS

Ken Graffeo is an idiot. They pay him God knows how much money to make those kinds of decisions for his company?? I'll take his gig and have Universal doing better in their Hi def home sales in one month.

""This is just a rumour, both Universal and Paramount are continuing to produce movies in HD DVD," said Ken Graffeo, executive vice president of High Definition Strategic Marketing at Universal Studios Home Entertainment"

They said the same thing to warner and Warner also confirm neutrality. Out of sudden, Warner pulled the eject seat. I'm pretty sure another one will pull the eject seat pretty soon too

"Microsoft said it has no plans to do any such thing, and that it believes HD DVD to be the best format for us consumers..."

'nuff said. Microsoft always knows best.
