I couldn't agree more that there's no need for the kind of obnoxious "nonsense" in this post. Stating that there's "no rational reason to settle for the inferior product" clearly implies that those who've bought into the format must be stupid dolts for not recognizing the obvious superiority of BD. Sorry to burst your bubble Rob, but I'm afraid that you and others of your ilk don't enjoy any monopoly in excellence of cognitive rationality or discernment, and that statement simply reflects a stupendous level of arrogance.

Alternatively: "Blu-ray! The longer you wait, the better it gets."

Who could argue that isn't truth in advertizing?

Well, if studios are putting out 2 Blu-ray discs instead of a single disc just for marketing purposes wouldn't that show that Blu-ray's higher manufacturing costs are negligible?

Also, would those BD 2-disc sets have over 20GB of extras and use a bit rate lower than HD DVD's maximum? In which case, the main movie could be put on a 30GB HD DVD disc. If not, could the compressionist get the same video and audio quality out of an encoding for HD DVD with a smaller file?

This just makes me pissed even more at Warners for not just getting their crap together and release those Hdi HD DVD's already, Why the heck are they waiting for this half baked format to have their product finished before we HD DVD buyers can enjoy their releases!
Too bad If the Blu-Ray crowd whine about it!, so let them wait another year along with "Batman Begins".
The HD DVD's are ready to be played so lets roll them out A.S.A.P!
